You'll get what you typically expect from a Residence Inn - friendly staff, suite style rooms and a kitchenette. What I wasn't expecting was the pungent smell and stained carpets in the hallways and elevators... Not sure what can be done about that, but it was very unpleasant to come "home" to after a long day of work..

We had a wedding to attend over the weekend and chose to stay at this hotel because it was pet friendly. We called the hotel a couple days in advance to let them know that we were brining our dog. Lance (Front Office Manager) pulled up our reservation over the phone and went above and beyond making us feel welcome. Just the conversation over the phone made us feel valued. Check in was extremely easy and they were clearly prepared for our arrival (4.5 hours earlier than standard check in). Our room was clean, modern, and centrally located. Room keys are required to access buildings, which is comforting. Continental breakfast is probably one of the best ones that we've had for this hotel chain. Breakfast bar had a great variety (waffles, French toast, bagels, muffins, oatmeal, eggs, sausage, etc) and was impeccably clean. When we checked out and returned home, we realized that we left items in our room. A quick call to the front desk and Lance emailed to let us know that he mailed our items back via FedEx. This will definitely be our go-to hotel when we're in the area.

We were here visiting my husband who has been working in the area for several months. I was very pleased with the comfort, cleanliness and arrangement of our large room. It has a nice size kitchen with a full fridge and dishwasher. All the staff have been very friendly and accommodating to us. They have a great breakfast EVERY day! Good amount of parking. Easy to find right off the expressway. Perfect if you are in the area visiting or working anywhere near the Telsa facilities.

This was my third time to stay at this property and my experience gets better every time. The location is ideal for shopping at Great Mall as it is a 2-minute walk to the mall. This time I got upgraded to a two-bedroom unit so it made my stay here with my young son and my parents extra comfortable! The room was very clean and had all i needed. What's more, Zi won 800 Marriott Rewards points when I played the "pick a card" game reserved for Elite members! I'm not sure if this is unique to this property or all Marriott hotels offer this fun game. I definitely recommend this hotel!

This property need a serious renovation. The carpet are run down, the plugs on the socket won't stay put, elevator seems too old to be running. The positive side is the room is clean and the staff are wonderful especially Vanessa.

We had my daughters 6th birthday party/slumber party here. I got a 2 bedroom suite and we had the time of our lives. We had food, drinks, and cake by the pool. We then enjoyed smores by the fire-pit and played some games in the room. The next morning we got up had the delicious complimentary breakfast and parents came to pick up the kids. It was a birthday bash to remember! The kids had a great time and I had very little to worry about. I loved the service we received from the staff. The room was spacious and very comfortable!

Just stayed there for one night this past weekend. This is by far one of the best small hotels in the area. You can see the quality when you walk into the room. Very attention to details. The room is clean. The bed is comfortable. Staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast is one of the better ones. Everything is good except: 1. we stayed on the first floor building A. There are loud noise at night, sound like air conditioner is broken or something. Its hard to sleep with that loud noise 2. While it is located near 880 and 237, it is not located nearby any restaurant or shopping centers 3. bathroom is tiny, so are the shampoo and body lotions samples. they are very skimpy on bath towels supply as well. (not enough for 2 people) Nevertheless, I would rate this chain hotel better than other small hotels chains in the area

Fruits available for break fast is always bad or decayed. Never had fresh fruits during breakfast. Evening snacks quality is going down. It is for namesake. Friendly staff, no eateries nearby. if you dont drive, it is very difficult to manage here.

We stayed here one night because we planned a trip to Great America with the kids for Easter Sunday. Check in with Drew was very smooth and he was very pleasant. The hotel was very clean and rooms were very spacious. Having a full kitchen to cook helped us save on money for lunch and dinner Saturday night. Our kids enjoyed the pool and my son loved having a basketball court and was able to check out a basketball at the front desk! An extra plus is the firpit and gas grill that my husband was able to bbq on. Breakfast in the morning was excellent as well and the ladies working here were also very friendly given the morning rush and never did I see an empty tray they were constantly filling up juice and replenishing. The breakfast selection is excellent. My kids always enjoy making their own waffles. I'm a Marriot rewards member and have to say this by far is one of the better ones. Staff is friendly and very attentive. The pool area was out of towels and within minutes after my husband went and grabbed a few they were refilling the bin. The only thing inconvenient was we didn't get the roll away for my son I had requested in my reservation. Other than that the hotel was very pleasant and we'd defintely stay here again.

I must admit that I am very fussy when it comes to hotels. I expect cleanliness, a decent location, friendly and efficient staff, and suffient soundproofing so that I can get a good night's sleep. Happily, the Residence Inn in Milpitas met all my expectations and then some. As we requested, we were assigned a lovely 2 bedroom suite in a quiet area of the hotel. The suite was spotless, well stocked with all necessary supplies, and very peaceful. The hotel is a short drive away from many restaurants, shopping, and the Santa Clara Convention Center where we were attending a show. What makes this hotel stand out in our opinion is the superb customer service we received from every single staff member with whom we came in contact. There was not a single time during our 5 night stay when we were not greeted with genuine warmth and kindness which made our stay all the more pleasant. Special kudos to Cleo, who has the sunniest smile imaginable and who brightened our breakfast every morning. She, along with the other breakfast crew, kept the buffet well supplied and the dining space spotless. When the requested taxi to the airport failed to show, one of the managers, Maggie, drove my friend to the airport so she wouldn't miss her flight. That's really great customer service. We are already planning our return next year to stay in this exceeding well run Residence Inn. Thanks guys, you made us very happy!
