Hotel is undergoing a complete renovation. So there is no bar or restaurant on site. Fortunately, the bar at the Sheraton across the road met my needs. I was upgraded to a suite at no charge, which had a living room area and separate bedroom, which could be closed off w/ a sliding barn door. Bathroom sink area is in the hallway between the living room and bedroom, with separate toilet/shower. So when you're shaving or at the sink, you're in full view of the living room and doorway into the room. One very annoying quirk is that the toilet/shower area is on a motion sensor light switch. So you get unpleasantly blinded when getting up during the night to pee. Also noticed that floor-to-floor sound isolation was very poor. I could hear my neighbors above me very clearly. Fortunately, they were not partiers or night owls. In all, the hotel will be very nice when it's finished, judging from the lobby area and floor/rooms that are finished. But don't expect to sleep in. Construction starts @ 7AM...

Very nice id stay again. Very ckean price is right

The rooms were all updated and clean. Park & fly is very convenient.

I liked everything!👍. The staff was amazing. I forgot her name,but the young lady who works in the breakfast hall was awesome!!

Under construction. Elevator is sketchy, free WiFi does not work, ac unit sounds like a blender, rom smells like a Route 66 motel 6, child size toilet does not fit my body (I’m not large). Continental breakfast is 12.95 for cereal nothing hot. Bar/ restaurant is closed. Won’t be back

Arrived for our stay and the renovations went completely around the building they even had hot water shut off. Unfortunately, looking for another hotel took the entire day and wasn't easy to do considering I have never been to this area before. I wish Orbitz would have let me know that this kind of construction was going on.

currently under construction but still clean. heated pool and Jacuzzi is a plus.

Great friendly staff. They were undergoing renovations so amenities were limited. Nice pool.

Comfortable stay and clean nice bed, clean shower and spacious room

it was very good and everyone was very nice I will go back next vacation.

Nice hotel, a little older but in good shape. Staff was very nice and helpful. The pool/hot tub and outside look very nice and are well kept. I'd stay here again.

Nice hotel close to beach and airport, the front desk is professioal

I’ve stayed here many times. I like the hotel, but this time there were a lot of party-ers. I’m there for work and I need my sleep. I know the staff can’t control everything, but I wish they would make hotel guest sign an agreement to keep the noise down. Money talks with nothing else will.

Stayed here many times. This is my favorite when working in this area. Staff is always 100%. Rooms are quiet, convenient to the airport with shuttle, restaurant on the premises.

Great and quiet place to stay in Santa Clara. Close to freeway. Cheerful hotel staffs, good breakfast

The hotel is reasonably priced and easily accessible to the highway and nearby eats. The hotel is clearly dated and badly needs a renovation. The elevators also need to be serviced or updated.

Old hotel but a great place to stay and wonderful staffs!

Hi Tammy, Thanks for the review. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience of the water shut-off and that their website didn't include the construction information. We will look into this matter to see how we can fix it moving forward.
