Very nice room. Bed was comfy but u can't order any movies unless u call the cable company and its just a big hassel. Wish hotel made it easier to buy movies from their dish.

Possibly the noisiest hotel stay that I have ever had. Sleep was almost impossible. This hotel reminds me of the expression "lipstick on a pig". The room was very expensive for accommodations that were mediocre at best. Would not recommend this hotel.

Very nice room. One of the best hotels we have stayed at. We will definitely come back.

The hotel is nice enough given the price you pay. The staff are super friendly. The rooms however are average at best. Not bad. Not great. The area isn't the best compared to the pricier communities further north, but you're also not paying at much typically.

I was not informed there would be a contracting crew right outside my window the entire time. Not only were they loud but my entire room was shaking all day, all weekend. They started early in the morning and went on into the evening. There was a huge crane outside my window and I had men looking at me. They would drop big boxes from the higher floors and they would crash land right outside my patio. When I complained to the front desk and asked to be moved, I was met with an unsympathetic and hostile staff member who told me that’s what I get for coming during low season and I can check out if I can’t handle the noise. No apology or attempt to find a different room for me. I asked to speak to the manager and was told that the owners were on the property and were well aware of the situation. She again repeated that I can check out and go somewhere else. I did nothing to deserve such a hostile response and did the best I could to calm the Best Western staff down. She really needs to avoid contact with guests and take an anger management class. I had two rooms, traveling with 4 adults, and am a Best Western member. I am very disappointed in how little they care about their guests and how the owners can tolerate such behaviors. Best Western just lost 4 customers.

Hotel was in great location & close to relatives we visit in Gilroy, CA. We've always stayed at the Quality Inn across the street, but decided to try the Best Western. The hotel facility is cleaner and kept up better. Breakfast has a better variety and is well stocked. This will be our "go-to" hotel from now on when we're in Gilroy, CA.

One middle-aged woman at front desk was not pleasant on several occasions. I was a nusance when asking for directions to outlet mall. Annoyance when asking simple questions at check-in. I would not hire. Cleaning staff very good to work with. However they need training to take their time if they are cleaning my room and I am sitting at laptop through the entire time. They should know what to ask for so they do not have to rush rush through cleaning because there is a man in the room. Need safes in the room. I traveled from the east coast and had much cash for me. Did NOT like that the front desk was in a separate building and I had to go outside on cold night to buy a drink of pepsi - should build a connecting tunnel.

Our second stay. Comfortable clean rooms, great breakfast. The gym equipment could use a little TLC and the pool need some attention but overall god place to stay

I had a wonderful time staying at the Hilton garden inn

Excellent for family, good breakfast bar, friendly staff.

Being by the outside door was noisy and kept us awake during rhe night. Would stay again except not by outside football

This a very clean,quiet place to stay. We use it when we go to Monterey for the day.

Good hotel given the choice in the area. Room was confortable but not well isolated from others rooms. You could hear tv or people talk from the room next door.

We were very surprised by how nice the hotel was. All the staff were very friendly and the breakfast was good. Even though we didn't use the pool and sauna they looked very inviting. I would definitely stay there again

The entire stay was excellent. The only incident that was annoying was someone left their dog in the room and it barked every time someone walk by.

We stay in Gilroy when attending Sea Otter in Laguna Seca. This hotel had a convenient location close to the freeway, restaurants and shopping (outlets!). The hotel staff was friendly and very accommodating. I called the 24 hrs before check in with a request for an accessible room since my husband recently injured himself and was using a wheelchair. They accommodated us without question. The room was spacious and easy for him to move around, making the trip more enjoyable. The only item needing some improvements was the free breakfast. I know it's free, but some healthier options would be great. Otherwise we enjoyed our stay and will be back next year.

I'm not sure why this hotel is so expensive. It feels like a Days Inn. The breakfast was mediocre. The hotel desperately needs updating. The walls are thin and we could hear the people walking above us. The only nice thing was having 3 queen sized beds for our large family. But there was only 1 television that was in the main room, none in the separate bedroom. Our shower leaked all night and we were the first door inside, so noisy people coming in and out woke us up. I would think there would be better options for the price.

Had to find a place to stay for just one night for a business trip. Good value for the price. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was better than continental, but the eggs were manufactured patties. If you are not in the mood to spend a couple of hundred dollars on a room and don't need over-the-top amenities, this is a great place. I would stay again.

Everything went well the hotel met our expectations for this business trip stay.

good hotel, i recommend this hotel. Staff was good and was clean. good location
