"Nice hotel"

4
25/07/2018

Nice hotel, altough its price its high. Nice and variety breakfast. The rooms have an unusual smell beause the windows cannot be opened. The recepcionist Marisol and Edith were really kind. The situation is perfect if you go to Silicon Valley companies.

"Good hotel"

16/07/2018

Over a nice hotel pool was clean good location a few blocks from both a very large mall and the winchester mystery house. Avrage rooms the only thing that was sub par was the breakfast I would have liked a little more option.

"Not bad for the price"

15/07/2018

Newly renovated room.. good for the price.. bed is comfortable...clean.. i just can't get the air con to the right temperature..it could get real cold ... typical free breakfast..nothing special.. parking is free and no problem

"Visiting family in the area "

10/07/2018

Location is very convenient and relatively quiet. There is a nice park across the street. Hotel has been updated recently, with many improvements, and is quite comfortable. Service is friendly. Breakfast is good, but a little more variety would be appreciated. We stayed for a week, and every day had the same scrambled eggs, sausage, and potatoes. Other problems with breakfast: no sugar free syrup for the waffles; tables were not kept clean; and foods were not replenished promptly (or at all).

"Nice modern furnishings"

03/06/2018

This hotel has exceptional decor in rooms. Remote control very disappointing. Limited premium channels. Breakfast so so. Nothing healthy available except yogurt. Had to scrape processed cheese off omlet.

"No complaints!"

5
20/05/2018

I'm getting on in years and have stayed in hundreds of motels. This is one of the best. Although it's an older property, it has been renovated and well maintained. The free breakfast is definitely the best of its kind. The room was large and the bed was superb. The plantings and pool are attractive. The room was set up to suit business travelers staying days or weeks, so there is plenty of storage space and work space. The WiFi was fine. Highly recommended.

"Great Location & Hotel"

5
15/05/2018

Best Westerns are generally a nice hotel in my experience but I really like this Santa Clara University Inn. The location is downtown near all the freeways but you don't hear them and plenty of good places to eat are within walking distance. They even give you a little restaurant recommendation guide at check in too. The breakfast here was really good for free I found it to be the standard for Best Western with more seating room. The hotel was above average in appearance and you can tell they take pride in the buildings and grounds. The pool area was beautiful but I did not have time to take a dip.My room was recently remodeled and very nicely done.The bathroom set up was great, very open and usable. The room had all the things I like, refrigerator, microwave, a very nice coffee bar with large flat screen TV that had a very good selection of channels. I noted an ironing board/iron in the closet. A full length mirror was on the closet doors. The bed was great with a great selection of pillows firm to soft. I love the desk with an office chair which I use in hotels. The AAA price was a good value and I will stay here again. The staff were very nice and helpful.

"Very good hotel in Santa Clara"

02/05/2018

This was my first time in Santa Clara. I needed a relatively inexpensive yet comfortable and clean hotel near the airport. This Best Western didn't disappoint. The room and bed were both spacious and comfortable. The internet worked perfectly which is something that i don't take for granted at hotels! There was a nice little gym which i used. They also have a pool which i didn't use. The free breakfast was typical fare that you would get at a BW property. It was fine. The only thing I didn't like about this hotel was the location. It seemed like the area was a wee bit seedy. It didn't matter because i arrived late and left early but i don't think this area is replete with nice cafe's that are in walking distance. But i could be wrong on this. But there is a Denny's close by if that turns your crank!

"Clean, Courteous, Cost Effective"

27/04/2018

I was in the area to photograph two rose gardens in San Jose, and this hotel is ideally located to access them. It's not a huge hotel and it's certainly no resort. But it is a shining example of a mid-priced hotel sans restaurant. I found it to be sparkling clean without that patina of dirt in the corners that a lot of hotels accumulate, even some pricy ones. The staff was very friendly and helpful, giving me a room even though I arrived late in the morning after a long drive. I was happy with the work space and the internet access. I was also very pleased with the one page pamphlet of recommended restaurants. Microwave, refrigerator, and Keurig style coffee machine are in the room. No lines. Friendly and efficient. Highly Recommended.

"Ideal location for San Jose Airport (SJC)"

4
13/04/2018

Stayed here for 1 night after driving from Monterey to the Big Sur before then flying to Las Vegas from SJC. Ideal location and perfect for a 1 night stop-over. More of a lodge than a hotel but absolutely met our needs. The buffet breakfast was cheap and cheerful but certainly did the job (especially as included in the rate).

"Good Nite Sleep"

5
07/04/2018

After 2 days of activity for my grandchilds first birthday myself and other daughter needed a good nights rest and some quiet This Best Western is about 5 blocks from her home and was just one of the beautiful things we needed to get away and recharge The staff were very friendly and helpful and the location was perfect not just for convenience to her home but to many other shops etc in the area I would recommend this best western to anyone business traveler, or just for fun

"A great stay"

4
06/04/2018

Stayed w/ our family while visiting SCU. Our 2nd floor room was quiet, huge, w/ plenty of room to spread out and lounge. Helpful staff at lobby. Newly refurbished w/ high quality furnishings. I'd recommend requesting a room away from El Camino Real if you're a light sleeper. The outdoor areas need some landscaping...once you leave your room you're basically standing in a giant parking lot. Pool looked lovely but was not heated, so basically no pool. No hot tub. Will happily stay again, though.

"Helping my son"

1
25/03/2018

Santa Clara Best Western University Inn was the perfect place to stay when I flew into town to help my son. Everything worked, everything was easy (breakfast, wifi, parking). I appreciated the friendly staff at the front desk. As a result, I could just focus on helping my son during the day and relaxing at night.

Gavin M, General Manager at Best Western Santa Clara University Inn, responded to this review
Thanks for the kind words! I'm hoping the 1-star review was just a mistake - sounds like we really delivered! Best regards, Gavin

"Nice motel well located"

3
16/03/2018

The hotel is nice for a US motel standard. The rooms are newly renovated. The worst thing is probably the bathroom. The breakfast is good for motel standards, but ok for hotel standards. It is close to the university and well located with shops and restaurants around.

"Really good choice!"

5
03/03/2018

We were here for a conference and chose this hotel over the one chosen by the conference in order to have free breakfast. I'm so glad we did! The breakfast is great, BTW, the room and all amenities fine, and a bed so good I took a picture of its tag so I can buy one for home. Marisol checked us in and remembered our names, and made sure we got the extra luggage rack we needed. She made this feel like a five star celebrity hotel! The hotel has a huge parking lot so if you have a big rig call them and see if they will let you park, a truck with U Haul was there when we arrived. Not all upstairs rooms are easily accessible with the elevator so ask for ground floor if you have mobility issues. Bathtub/shower was slippery, I did not ask for a rubber mat, but used a hand towel in the bottom, a trick recommended to me at another hotel. Everything else fine. K Cup coffee maker in room if you want to bring your own.

Gavin M, General Manager at Best Western Santa Clara University Inn, responded to this review
Thanks for the review, barbgal! I'm glad we made your stay a great one. I also agree - when traveling, there is nothing quite like a good, free breakfast! That's a good trick about the bathtub. Each of rooms does have an anti-slip mat, but they're usually rolled up in the vanity area. We look forward to hosting you on your next trip - and isn't Marisol so great?!

"Another year, another excellent stay"

5
06/01/2018

We enjoyed another great stay here during a holiday road trip. The staff continue to be outstanding. On this trip, we turned on the TV to find that a previous guest had changed the input away from where it should have been. I couldn't find the input switch on the television, so I visited the front desk. The staffer immediately came to our room and figured out the problem. Can't ask for anything more than that. We again utilized the laundry facility, which came in very handy. There are also plenty of restaurants not far away. The breakfast setup was just OK, but that's a minor quibble. All in all, very pleased again with our stay here.

"Little far from the CBD but it is Ok if you have a car"

4
05/01/2018

Reasonable priced motel with completed motel services. If was littel far from most of the high tech corps. If your trip was not a business visiting, but a signseeing (if "on sight" location was not essential), it will be a good choice. It is easy to reach highway 880 and highway 1 to dirve to Santa Cluz and continue to dirve to Monterrey Bay and Carmel if you have a car. It takes 30 minites or 1 hour driving.

"Stay at Best Western - Santa Clara, CA"

4
03/01/2018

The room was nice, it was for the most part very clean and smelled good. The bed was comfortable, sheets were clean and bright (white), the pillows... well those are a personal preference. I would recommend a stay here if you were in Santa Clara, CA.

"My Diamond in the rough"

29/12/2017

Always my choice when I visit San Jose. My home away from home. Everything you need in a hotel experience!!! If your looking for a quiet place that offers great personal service at a good compatible rate then this is the place!!!

"visit family"

29/12/2017

excellent we will always stay here. We enjoyed our stay very much. we are both handicped so having a room available for us to stay at a moment notice is great. we appriciate being able to depend on this location to stay when we come into town.

"Great Place. Good Value"

5
23/12/2017

This appears to be an older hotel, but there has been extensive renovation done on the inside. The rooms have small bathrooms, but are otherwise very attractive. Internet connectivity is superb. Hotel staff was helpful

"Our new go to lace for San Jose"

5
21/12/2017

Great place and very convenient location for all our destinations in and about San Jose area. Will definitely stay there again on multiple time per year trips to San Jose, can strongly recommend as a location to stay in San Jose area.

"Fine Place to Stay"

4
19/12/2017

Check-in on line was a breeze. The room was clean, bed was comfortable, the shower water was nice and hot. Unfortunately, we could hear the kids running outside. The motel was clean and good looking. I would stay here again.

"Nice place and people"

4
18/12/2017

I had to modify my reservation a few days before arrival over the phone and the front desk response was professional. Upon arrival late at night, the check-in was quick and directions to the room perfect. The property is "motel style", but the rooms are updated, clean, secure, and quiet. The property is easy to get to and 15 minutes to/from San Jose airport. The breakfast area is clean and the food selection was good. Internet speed was excellent. Check-out was easy. The only issue I had was the room AC unit had a bit of a rattle.

"Great place to stay in Silicon Valley"

5
04/12/2017

This is the third time we have stayed at this Best Western and have each time enjoyed our stay. Very close to many area attractions. The rooms are well designed and the exterior is very clean. There are nearby shopping centers and a Denny's within walking distance. The breakfast is great with many different selections.

"Love Best Western"

5
28/11/2017

Always a great experience, love the rooms, the breakfast, the service and the staff. Property was close to everything and very clean. We needed to print a ticket for the up coming 49ers game (real reason for our stay) and the staff was very helpful!!!!

"Seahawks game"

4
27/11/2017

Drove 13 hours to get to the game and was very tired. There was no roll away bed as advertised but was upgraded to a bigger room. Breakfast was not so good but good location to Levi's stadium. Close to other restaurants.

"Wonderful place to stay"

5
22/11/2017

We stayed at this hotel while visiting a family member who attends Stanford University. This is a really nice hotel. Our room looked newly remodeled. New decorating, paint, tile, tv, comfortable beds. Refrigerator and microwave worked great. The entire grounds seemed clean and well maintained. Friendly staff always talkative and pleasant. The breakfast was fantastic. I looked forward to it everyday. Everything you could want, make your own waffles, freshly made scrambled eggs, and much more. Right across the street is Saint Clare monument and garden. Would definitely stay here again. Enjoyed our stay.

"Beautiful Hotel"

4
14/11/2017

We travel to a lot of hotels in California and this is one of the best. The décor was beautiful throughout, the breakfast selection was out of this world delicious and the location was perfect. Definitely not disappointed with anything BW had to offer.

"Nice hotel"

5
13/11/2017

Nice hotel on a main street in Santa Clara. University not too far away. We did a late check in after flying in from Burbank. Room was reserved and waiting for us. Family had an enjoyable stay here. We will be back.

"Enjoyment"

08/11/2017

Very clean and well located for restaurants and daily shopping needs. Staff friendly and willing to assist...will stay there again. Fair price for weekend stays, but pricey during the week. Room decor is exceptionally nwell done.

"Best Best Western Hotel"

5
07/11/2017

Being a BW Member, I've stayed at dozens of properties all over the states. That being said, this was by far the best hotel in BW's chain. I stayed 5 nights and I could have stayed longer to be honest. The interior decor is remarkably clean, new and chic. Beautiful room and very comfortable bed; giving a Yosemite Cabin-feel. The staff was awesome. Always there with a chipper smile. Breakfast was pretty good (although I didn't partake in it everyday). There's a washer/dryer, vending machine of soda/waters, ice, this hotel truly a job well-done. I don't have complaints if I'm being honest. The linen, bathroom, floors - everything clean head 2 toe. Housekeeping was terrific and even the location is superior. I highly recommend this property, but be careful as they book out fast!

"Impressive Facility and Friendly Staff"

5
07/11/2017

We have stayed at this hotel many times while visiting our daughter who is attending university in Santa Clara. We tried a number of other properties in the area, but we always come back to the Best Western University Inn Santa Clara. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They always go out of their way to attend to guests, and to make sure that the guest experience is top notch. Dave and Edith at the front desk head an all-star cast of service providers. The rooms are very comfortable and always clean as a whistle.

"A Pleasant Stay"

4
27/10/2017

Convenient location: easy to get to San Jose Airport, SJ Rose Garden, Santa Clara University, Stanford University and Art Museum, Valley Fair Shopping Mall, Santana Row, etc. Friendly and welcoming staff at reception, good full breakfast, nice and quiet room, and comfortable bed.

"Excellent"

5
24/10/2017

Excellent service, excellent employees, excellent rooms very big and clean, great breakfast spread. Something for everyone to enjoy! We would recommend this location and many more to our friends and family in the future.

"Fun Motel"

5
14/10/2017

Check was great and easy. Got information on where to eat. I rented two rooms and both were well kept. Very comfortable. Hotel itself was nice and clean. Outside was well kept. Pool was very nice and the grandkids and I enjoyed playing and sunbathing. Breakfast was great and had all we needed. Several places to eat were close. Easy 1/4 mile walk.

"Best Best Western around"

5
13/10/2017

Great value. Close to work. ONLY complaint is that I wish the doors had better seals under the doors at the thresholds. Some sound gets in but not so much I couldn't sleep. Will stay here again for sure.

"Santa Clara Business"

5
08/10/2017

This Best Western Property should be a Best Western Plus Hotel, I have stayed at many Plus properties in the past that were not nearly this nice. The management and staff are outstanding and the rooms, spotless. I will definitely stay here again in the future.

"Great stay!"

5
07/10/2017

Newly remodeled rooms with very tasteful decor. Comfortable bed, quiet, good internet. Breakfast was fine - the usual assortment, but I have to say that the oatmeal was really very good. Would definitely stay here again!

"Best value in Airport area"

5
27/09/2017

By far the best bang for your buck in this area of town. Newer rooms, quiet, close to loads of places to eat and a short 5 min drive to the airport (SJC). The staff are super friendly. Again the price is great for this area other similar priced hotels in the area are much older and run down.

"Handicap Reservation but Not Handicap Room"

2
19/09/2017

I reserved a handicap room for September 14th. I am on 50% weight bearing due to a fractured femur. We were in Santa Clara for a family funeral. We dropped our bags in the room and left without looking at the bathroom. The room was on the ground floor and did have any stairs to climb. The hotel was having the palm trees pruned and tree cuttings were everywhere. We returned late that night we noticed that the hotel door did not have any insulation and the workmen had blown tree cuttings and leaves into the room. When I tried to enter the bathroom, the door was so small my walker would barely fit. I decided that we would be better off staying in the room that night. For the services the next day I did not take a shower since my knee did bend high enough to clear the tub. I went to the office and told the lady about the room and she just said she was sorry. My reservation was made for a Roll in SHOWER, not a bathtub. We paid $227.48 for the handicap room for one night that was NOT a handicap room. I was so upset that I went out to get breakfast and did not eat at the hotel.

Gavin M, General Manager at Best Western Santa Clara University Inn, responded to this review
Suzanne, I'm so sorry to hear that you had troubles during your stay. We do have 4 ADA rooms, 2 of which have roll-in showers. Without more information I cannot say what happened, but I apologize for the inconvenience you experienced.

"Clean and convenient near SCU"

4
18/09/2017

Stayed here when dropping my daughter off at college. The hotel is conveniently located near Santa Clara but it's on a busy street. However it was still pretty quiet. The room was clean but a little dark and smelled slightly of air conditioning and disinfectant. The pool was clean and had very nice furniture around it, and there was a nice patio set near our room I sat on in the evening to do work. Breakfast was decent and we saved a lot of time and money eating there. The fitness center was small but clean. I will likely stay here again.

"Trip"

11/09/2017

The check Iady was great! So nice. We only stayed one night but all seemed great! They have workout room thats good. The pool was nice . Its location was good right by college. Best western is very reliable chain

"Flooring outside rooms very noisy"

3
09/09/2017

Due to the uneven flooring outside the rooms on the second level the cart used by the cleaning services consistently produced very loud, train like, rumbling. Do to the nature of my business I was sleeping in the days. Otherwise it was an ok stay!

"Nicer than Expected"

4
01/09/2017

I haven't stayed in a Best Western in years and my recollection of them was that they were only so so in quality and service. But this experience was a very positive one, from the lobby checkin, the size/quality & room decor, to the breakfast and checkout. If this is typical of all Best Western Hotels then I will choose it again.

"A great nights stay"

5
27/08/2017

Thank you to the employees. It was such a great experience we even stayed an extra night. We loved the internet beibg available in our rooms. We loved the fitness room. The cleanliness of the rooms were very much noticed.

"Weekend "

4
09/08/2017

It was pretty good for that area. The Room was Clean and comfortable. They offer also breakfast. Parking is inside. Strategic position. Only one complain: the air conditioner in the room was to much noise.

"OK motel"

4
08/08/2017

Very pricey, with tax a little less than $200 a night. Breakfast was OK, nothing special, room was fine. No problem with the property. Employees were courteous. Location was fine, relatively close to Santa Clara University.

"Good place to stay while having house worked on"

4
08/08/2017

At check-in, Edith was very helpful, spending extra time to find a room with two queens to replace our reserved one king bed room. They were sold out a couple of the nights during our stay, so she had to finagle to make the switch. The breakfasts were decent with a decent selection of eggs, cereal, waffles, bagels, and yogurt. Our room were clean, comfortable, and reasonably quiet. We were there 9 nights while our hardwood floors were refinished.

"Great location, wonderful facility"

5
01/08/2017

I attended a wedding at the Mission of Santa Clara de Asis and this location was perfect to access the University of Santa Clara campus. The pool was a lovely bonus during quiet times to enjoy the sun. The breakfast was more robust than I would have expected.

"Good location but costly"

3
30/07/2017

We spent 3 nights there, 2 adults and 2 children aged 17 and 11. The room had 2 double beds which was ok but the sink was also in the room, which doesn't give much privacy. Very small bathroom, dark room with a small window. It's a good location if you want to drive around Santa Clara. Too expensive though. For this price you get a hotel in the heart of Paris!

"Good location at quite a cost"

3
29/07/2017

It seems that in this area it is impossible to find a good hotel at an affordable price, but USD 250 per night for this motel type hotel is too much. The rooms are big and provide what you need, but the balcony style access is a problem as people tend to use them as extensions of their rooms, and that is very noisy for other guests. Pool area is very nice, and a definite plus, even for sitting and working as it provided real tables and chairs under nice big umbrellas. The breakfast is actually OK, but it could be nicer in the layout, and seating is not very nice, and certainly not enough for this size of property.

"Awesome places to stay"

5
24/07/2017

Above and beyond excellent When you need a place to stay the night, this Best Western is the Best as the title says. Excellent amenities, soda machine, ice and a breakfast to compare to an "A" rated restaurant!

"Staycation with the family"

5
23/07/2017

My family and I decided to stay overnight in a hotel for family night. We enjoyed the city and has a great time. We were looking for a hotel that's not expensive and within our budget limit. We checked Best Western hotel since we had great experience staying with them during our family road trip last month in Oregon. So we tried Best Western University Inn Santa Clara. We are so pleased with their service from check in to check out. Checkin experience was great. Information was given like internet password; swimming pool information; express checkout was offered; breakfast info included. Our room is cleaned. Towels and amenities are good for four. We did not have to call guest services for extra towels. Bathroom is in small but clean and all utilities functions very well. Parking is not a problem. Great parking spaces and felt safe. Breakfast is good; not much have selection for vegans but kids enjoyed the parties. However, there was a sign that requests can be made for gluten free and vegetarian breakfast. Check out is the easiest! Express checkout :) Thanks Best Western!

"Orientation to Santa Clara University"

1
22/07/2017

Very disappointed hotel stay. Misleading booking. and Lack of honesty and integrity of management and his response to concerns. Gavin McClements, CHA General Manager of Best Western University Inn Santa Clara on 1655 El Camino Real Santa Clara, Ca 95050 gave a condescending and inappropriate response to my concerns. I made three attempts on three different days to talk to the general manager about a rate and price that was different during booking. We arrived at 1:30 in the morning and was given a rate that worth $50 more than what was disclosed. After questioning the reception at the general manager will help resolve the issue. Not only were they unprofessional, the motel was substandard for the rate of 250 a night. We will never stay in a best Western again

Gavin M, General Manager at Best Western Santa Clara University Inn, responded to this review
Renee, I can certainly understand your frustration over your stay, your attempts to besmear my name notwithstanding. That being said, as I stated earlier, we are actually very transparent with our pricing - our rates can be found on every major travel website, and they are all consistent with one another. In addition, we present pricing to every guest at check-in; there is no cloak-and-dagger bait-and-switch here. What you signed for is what you were charged, nothing more, nothing less. We know you always have a choice when staying in a town away from home; playing games doesn't do any of us any good. We wish you the best in your future travels.

Beds are very comfortable, shower is good too. Breakfast is great. Everything is very Satisfactory.We will recommend this to our relatives and friends to stay here in Santa Clara, CA. wE WILL STAY HERE AGAIN.

"All the basics & clean with nice grounds."

14/07/2017

Our room was decent size, fairly recently ungraded, clean and good bang for the buck. The grounds were nicely cared for and the staff was friendly. The elevator to the sending floor was a big help with luggage. We plan to stay again in the near future.

"Comfy Rooms, Friendly Staff"

13/07/2017

Enjoyed my stay here, comfy rooms & friendly staff, would definitely stay again. Rooms were clean with all amenities working well, restaurants & shops in walking distance, really enjoyed the breakfast at the neighbouring 'Denny's ' Diner.

"Airport"

05/07/2017

Close to airport. Very quiet and relaxing. Room very clean. Loved the décor. Staff very friendly and helpful. Hotel was beautiful. Close to a variety of restaurants and shopping centers. Close to university. All are within walking distance.

"Nice and clean"

03/07/2017

This is a 2 story hotel with a pool and gym. Parking is free. Its a very clean hotel and looks fairly new. Only issue I had was we couldn't connect to WiFi with Mac phones and iPads. Worked with android phones. Tech support couldn't figure it out. Breakfast was standard BW stuff.

"Best hotel ever"

Best Western Santa Clara was the best hotel stay ever. The employees are very professional and friendly. The rooms are a good size and immaculate The hotel is in excellent conditions with up to date nice furniture in rooms. They have a nice pool, elevator, weight room and they serve breakfast. I forgot my jacket and the staff notified me immediately and shipped to me. I highly recommend this hotel to all..

The room had a very strong bad smell and had an ant problem. Also the shower would not drain which was gross. The breakfast food was stale and some had mold on it. This place was way overpriced for all the problems it had.

Gavin M, General Manager at Best Western Santa Clara University Inn, responded to this review
Karin, Thank you for staying with us; I am sorry to hear you had a poor experience while you were here. I'm fairly surprised at the breakfast issues - my team is very rigorous in their inspections, but I will bring it to their attention again. I hope you give us another chance to impress. These are certainly out of the ordinary for us.

"Good hotel. Service needs improvement"

Overall nice facility. Just service needs improvement. A staff seemed upset that I requested some fresh towels. They start putting the breakfast away before the actual end time. Another staff turned off TV in the common area that I was watching, without asking me.

"Unprofessional manager & front desk staff"

23/06/2017

Terrible service from management, front desk personnel needs more training, specially manager, they make you feel like they don't know what they are doing, look out for unexpected change of price on your room, in my case went double from one day to the next! DOUBLE!!

Gavin M, General Manager at Best Western Santa Clara University Inn, responded to this review
Yes, our rates are variable from day to day. This is standard practice, and we are well advertised online; our rates are never a secret. Being that we are in a heavily commercial area with primetime being midweek business travel, our rates do go up from what they were on the weekend. We certainly apologize that this caught you off guard.

"Santa Clara Graduation"

23/06/2017

This is a very nice Best Western, perfect location for attending our grand daughter's graduation and ultimately family reunion. Past reviews are true, staffs here are super friendly starting from walking in to their beautiful lobby, they will greet you with genuine smile and welcomed you. This is the 5th Best Western we've been to, and my family agreed that this is the best Best Western we stayed with no issues at all. Grand kids enjoyed the pool and the 24 hours beverages served and provided to all their guests. Good Restaurants around this hotel, shopping malls are easy to find, gas stations, banks, catholic church, coffee house. We'll stay again when we come back to explore this side of California.

Gavin M, General Manager at Best Western Santa Clara University Inn, responded to this review
Thank you so much for staying with us during your visit, and for trusting our brand! I'm always pleased to learn that our reputation is deserved. We look forward to serving you again next time you're in the area!

"6 Awesome Nights"

5
17/06/2017

I enjoyed my 6 nights stay in this location, no hassle. The staffs in this Best Western lead by Edith at the front desk are extremely friendly, courteous and helpful. I am an elderly woman visiting my son in Santa Clara area and the staffs here made sure that I am comfortable and feel at home and secured. Front Desk staffs, housekeeping and dining attendants are awesome! I also appreciate their on site laundry facility it really helps me not taking my dirty clothes to my son's house. Breakfast are just ok, just wish they have alternate breakfast menu, if you're staying for 2 nights that will be just right, but I stayed 6 nights and they served the same items everyday and this is the only flaw that I've seen. Other than that this location will still be my new favorite as you can't go wrong in this Best Western, many restaurants to choose from within walking distance, Target, Sprouts, Smart and Final, Banks, and a good nail salon next door to this Best Western. And oh by the way, I want to thank them for making me a member of their loyalty program, I just received my first $60 worth of travel cards, plus I already earned my points from my stay with them. Best Western is currently having the Summer promotion, so if I were you, do yourself a favor and join their loyalty program you will not regret that you join them. So far this is the best Best Western that I ever been and will stay again when I come back to visit my son in December. Thank you Best Western University Inn Santa Clara!

The location was great! Room was beautiful and the pool was beautiful. Wish we had thought to bring a swimsuit. The front office was very helpful. We needed to leave early but even so they let us have a fresh cup of coffee for the road. Overall a great place to stay!

"Decent option"

22/05/2017

Stayed here for 2 nights in early May for a business trips. One of the very few places that had reasonable (~$200) rates. Every other place seemed to have jacked up their prices becasue of corporate travel and what not. Efficient check-in. Room was spacious and functional. One odd feature was the location of the sink, which was right next to the room door and outside the bathroom. Breakfast was OK. Location is good with easy highway access and tons of eating joints up and down El Camino. Overall, a decent option for a few nights.

The insulation between the two floors was not very good, the person above our room was pacing, stomping and loud, it took me a while to fall asleep, plus my room was next to the service room, noisy!!!

20/05/2017

Location was quite good; near the Intel Museum, and walking distance to Santa Clara University; very adequate breakfast w/ hot eggs/potatoes/sausage & usual beverages, fruit & pastry items. Nice separate work out room (would recommend 24 hr use since it is not next to a hotel room). Free parking, & nicely landscaped. Older style motel, remodeled a few years ago; nice amenities; slight musty odor in our room. Great Staff!!

"Loved my comfy room"

01/05/2017

I live near this BW and go by it all the time. i had a chance to stay one night. The moment I walked into the lobby, I realized this was one of the nicest BW I had stayed in. My room was very comfortable and nicely appointed furniture. When a room includes a side chair that I can sink in with lamp for comfortable reading, that features always get a good vote from me. The only done side I would say is that the outside walls are thin. I could hear some cough outside in the hall as clear as if he was in my room. Other than that, this BW is really nice.

"Excellent place to stay"

22/04/2017

The hotel was clean, and comfy. Breakfast was good! Good value.... Thank you! Only complaint which has nothing to do with hotel at all... is there is not a lot to do around there. Especially in the evening. There are some resturants nearby and a mall, but that's about it... If you have a car then matter you can go anywhere, but no car options are pretty limited.

Gavin M, General Manager at Best Western Santa Clara University Inn, responded to this review
Thanks for the review! We're so glad the stay fit your every need. Having a car in our area is always a benefit for getting around for entertainment (this is a commercial district for sure), but at least we have good restaurants and shopping within walking distance. I've stay at places with less, for sure!

This hotel was convenient to where my husband needed to go for an appointment. It is on the Main street (El Camino Real) in Santa Clara and not far from lots of attractions in the area. The neighborhood is good. Close to lots of shopping and restaurants, etc. Room was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay.

More like a motel with doors leading to parking place. Room was spacious but had to keep shades on because people were walking past the window. Wardrobe was a bit smelly and shower was low on pressure but otherwise the room was great. Big bed and nice selection of TV channels. Good breakfast except for the lack of vegetables, ham and cheese to put on bread. Had fresh fruits though.

"Efficient & Convenient"

26/11/2016

I visited my employer's Head Office in Santa Clara and stayed at this hotel for nine days. Check-in time is 3 pm and they did not have a room ready when I showed up at 11:30 am. My fault, so I did not mind waiting about 30 min for the room to be ready for me by 12 noon. Had some coffee in the breakfast area and caught up with my inbox. Staff is very friendly and I appreciated that they got the room ready for early check-in. Hotel rates are reasonable and represents good value because it includes free parking and breakfast. Rooms are spacious and clean, although I agree with other reviewers on two drawbacks: 1. Bathroom is quite small 2. the rooms open directly to the outside, so there is a safety concern as also that you always seem bring in some dirt from outside. 3. Half the closet space is taken up by the ironing board Bed was clean and pillows are firm, unlike the mushy pillows found in so many hotels which makes sleep impossible. Wifi is reliable and consistent - did not experience and signal drops. Download speeds averaged 106 mbps and upload 23 mbps. Distance to hotel from SFO airport is 34 miles and Uber costs $55; Yellow cab is $100 and shared ride taxi is $70. Distance from San Jose Airport is 3 miles and Uber fare is $6.50. Uber Pool is freely available from the hotel and never had to wait more than 7 min - I used it daily as commute to and from the office. My office is 4.2 miles from the hotel and Uber fare was $6 on average per trip. Finding the room was easy compared to some other hotels. The room was very clean, attractive, comfortable and had all the amenities needed for a long stay: - ironing board and iron - luggage stand - Coffee maker is the old style with the filter funnel, drip coffee and glass carafe. - small microwave - small refrigerator Location is super convenient with numerous restaurants, shopping, banks etc. within walking distance. There are two Indian restaurants within a 5 min walking distance and two Indian grocery stores within a 10 min walking distance from the hotel. Unlike some other Best Western locations have seen, this one seems to be in a safe neighborhood. The Santa Clara Town Center that has a Target department store, Boston Market, Chipotle, Panera etc. is 7 min walk. Several fast food joints - McD's, KFC, Denny's etc are 5 min walk away. Largest shopping mall in San Jose is 10 min by car. On-site laundry is very convenient; costs $1.50 in quarters for each washer/ dryer cycle. You can get change from the front desk and they even give you free pouch of single use Tide! Wifi works in the laundry room so one can get some work done while waiting. Breakfast is between 6-10 am. It is functional with paper plates and plastic cutlery. Consisted of bread (bagel/toast/muffin), yogurt, fruit with coffee, cereals/ granola, cold boiled eggs and juices. Hot items included waffles, scrambled eggs, sausage links etc. I strongly recommend this hotel.

"Attending conference at Santa Clara Conference Center"

21/10/2016

Chose the hotel because it was reasonably priced versus other listed hotels close to the conference center. The rooms were clean and well kept- but they are outside entrances which I'm not crazy about from a general safety standpoint. However, the location of the hotel seemed to be in a safe area. It's about a 10-15 minute ride to the conference center- and about $10-15 Uber cost. The breakfast was a nice buffet- and was well stocked by the friendly staff.

Gavin M, General Manager at BEST WESTERN University Inn Santa Clara, responded to this review
Thank you for responding - every review and comment is welcome. Judging by the scores you gave, we did pretty well except for the fact that we are an exterior corridor property. I am wondering what we could have done beyond that to improve your score for next time? Thanks!

We moved here from another hotel in the area that was noisy and seemed shady. This hotel was clean and quieter. Even though on a busy street, the rooms are back off the street and protected from noise. The bathroom is small. The drain didn't close in mine, for those who like a tub.

Fairly pricey. The room was pretty, but the bathroom cramped. The pool was a nice set-up with a bathroom- no showers or heat. Breakfast was nice. Santa Clara was only a short drive to San Jose which our family loves. We were able to easily go visit the Tech and explore downtown.

"This time it wasn't as great as the first one"

01/09/2016

I stayed in Best Western the week of August the 15th for studies and honestly I expected my experience to be as great as the first one but it wasn't. I don't why but they assigned me a room for disabled guests so taking a shower was really uncomfortable for me since I am not used to use this kind of bathrooms, I left the floor wet many times, the handwasher was closer to the floor too. Since this room was very close of the street and under the storage room, every night I heard a noise coming from above. I didn't make any complaint since I am not the kind of guest who complaints and also I was more worried about my lugagge which AA lost by mistake, fortunately a couple of days later it arrived. Marisol from the front desk as always she was very kind and she even called me when my lugagge was back, the rest of the staff is good too, but as I said I don't know why they assigned me a so uncomfortable room for me. I thought they would remember me as a returning guest but apparently they didn't.

Gavin M, General Manager at BEST WESTERN University Inn Santa Clara, responded to this review
I'm sorry your stay wasn't as you expected! Occasionally reservations come in from third party sites like Expedia with one of our ADA rooms requested - since the reservation came from the outside, we often cannot question the assignment. I don't know if this was your case, but we'll do our best to get it all right for you next time!

This part of Santa Clara used to be a little run down, but it looks like the city has been cleaning things up on El Camino. In particular, this hotel used to be pretty run down (maybe 7 years ago), but it's been nicely renovated and I felt completely safe staying here. It also helps that there is a new shopping center down the street, along with new restaurants.

The motel-style inns by Best Western vary in quality. I liked this one. It is well designed, well kept and relatively new. It looks friendly. The pool is nice. Many rooms have windows at the rear side, so you can get some fresh air through the room. The road has many little shops and food is easy to come by. Because of the municipal centre on the neighbouring block, it is a quiet place especially in the evenings and weekends. The down town area can be easily reached by foot.

This hotel was one of the best I have stayed at. Very nice and new feeling. Best breakfast with fresh fruit everyday and a lot to choose from. The people at the front desk are very friendly. The only thing I would suggest is adjustable shower heads with different spray settings. The one in the room was just a light spray and I prefer a little more pressure.

I was surprised to see how nice this property was. It must have been recently renovated as it looked great when we were there in July 2016. Room was clean with a mini fridge and a microwave which was a bonus. There is a salt water outdoor pool which is not heated (at least while we were there). Free parking is available close to your room as it is a drive-up type of Motel configuration. Staff was friendly and helpful. The cost of the room was expensive (about $300 Canadian per night), but that seems to be the going rate.

The room was very clean and nice. This hotel had reachable plugs next to the bed to plug in your phone( many hotels don't have that).. They even have a lift next to the pool for any handicap person to go into the pool. That is fantastic.! Best place I stayed during my entire travel.

10/07/2016

This hotel is nothing fancy, but we just needed a place to sleep, shower, and relax for a couple nights while visiting the area. The staff first upgraded us to a suite with two queen beds, which was a pleasant surprise. The place was a little dated, especially the bathroom. The bathroom did not have a lot of space for items, my only frustration. Again, for a short trip, this place was comfortable and clean, exactly what we needed. The cost was reasonable. in addition, there is a fitness center, laundry, pool, and all added amenities a family could need. Free breakfast was your usual: waffles, cereal, eggs, sausage, potatoes, fruit, yogurt, toast, danish, coffee, tea,and juice. Nothing fancy but nice selection nonetheless. The dining area was small, which could be a problem if the hotel is full. It was not while we were there.

10/07/2016

Not fancy, but very comfortable and welcoming. Very close to restaurants and the University. Surrounding traffic is not as hectic as other locations we have stayed. About 15 minutes to airport (very traffic dependent). Has the old-fashioned design of two stories with outside entrances and you park at the door. However, lobby and breakfast area are not crowded and the food is good with wide variety. Friendly front desk. Room was always clean (we stayed for a week) and shampoo, etc, was always stocked. Just can't beat the location if going to the University area.

The hotel is, like many, of the style that have an open walkway that is accessible to all. The window to the room is next to the door so you may spend much of your time there with the curtains drawn to maintain some privacy. During my stay the parking lot was often taken up with a lot of trucks that barely fit into the parking bay. This might be due to the lower room rate? The pool is in the middle of the parking lot and is open air, so can be chilly. Hotel staff are all friendly and no restrictions seem to exist if you want to print out any paperwork. The breakfast is similar to most hotels in the group, some small sausages and scrambled egg. This time the egg had something like onion in it which made a pleasant difference. No apple juice but Orange or Cranberry Juice is available. No sign of restaurants within walking distance but nothing the hotel can do about that. There are plenty of decent places within a 5 mile drive. I'd stay here again.

We arrived around 11pm and the clerk was friendly to check us in. He indicated "parking is over there and park wherever" That was a red flag as parking lot is tiny! Barely found a small space to park. Went to bed around midnight and had difficulty falling asleep. As I laid in bed, I could hear folks to the left of us in full on conversation and they finally said good night and two of them left that room. I am assuming that couple occupied the room next to us (on the right) as I could hear them having sex! I went on for 30-45 min and finally they were done, it was THEN quiet enough to sleep.

Dear Torressalazar, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am happy to see that the Desk Agent was friendly when you checked in. I will work with the desk staff to be a little more helpful in instructing guests of where to park especially on busy nights when are parking lot gets full. As some noise issues are out or our control we do try to address the ones we can so that all of our guests get the sleep they need and enjoy their stay. I hope that you would consider staying with us in the future. Regards, Tom

You must know that all this area & the silicon valley is just ungodly pricey ! You paying for the realestate ! So this place is neat and clean . Nice lobby , a bit small . Easy & friendly check in . On a busy street but fairly quiet . Many eating places within walking distance , many indian eateries if that is your thing . Rooms are clean and fairly modern . Continental breakfast was average . Good coffee I will add . Pricey though , again it is just the area . Friendly staff , had no problems . I would return again given the opportunity .

If you are women staying at this hotel I would recommend staying on the second floor since you will be away from all the foot traffic. I would also recommend that you bring your own shampoo since the hotel travel shampoo isn't all that great. Overall its a good option for business travel. My room was exceptionally clean. Besides the shampoo, the only other complaint is the lack of restaurants close by. I had to drive to a restaurant for dinner.

Everything was clean, neat, nice, etc. Best Western and especially Best Wstern Plus & Premier rarely disapoint me. I've stayed at this property a few times and will again. As you can expect the free breakfast and fitness center are "fine" but you may prefer a restaurant or health club. Santa Clara and most of the bay area is pretty expensive so you aren't going to find anything better than this (or as good) without paying a good deal more.

We needed a place to stay near California Great America in Santa Clara, so we chose the Best Western University Inn. We are familiar with the BW hotels and have always had a good experience staying at them. The room was nicely decorated and clean. The included breakfast was really great and saved quite a bit of money. Make-your-own waffles, eggs, sausage, juices, cereals, etc. and all very good. All in all it was a good place to stay if you need to be in the area.

The staff is friendly and helpful, and the rooms are clean. Breakfast has a decent selection, although it was the same for all four days I stayed here. However, at $230+ per night, I was surprised I was staying at a motel, with all rooms directly accessible from the parking lot (no inside hallways). Also, there were numerous DirecTV vans in the parking lot during my stay, and you can hear them beeping often (I think when they're reversing).

Tom L, Manager at BEST WESTERN University Inn Santa Clara, responded to this review
Dear Spotsandfriday, Thank you for taking the time to review the property. I am sorry that the vans disturbed you when they were reversing. We do shop the other hotels/motels in the area and try to be as competitive as possible. This area is in very high demand especially Monday - Thursday.

We stay here when visiting our son at school. This is the best best western, situated protected from the street. There is one front desk gal, Marisol who is a definite asset to the the business. I have had a problem that she so sweetly and intently solved in the past. I have sat at the computer nearby and listened to her interaction with the costumers, not always nice, some very demanding and I was wowed with her ability to stay so sweet and give phenomenal costumer service. Again this trip I was so happy to see her greeting us at the front desk again with the best service. Thank you best western and Marisol. I look forward to our next visit.

Stayed here a couple nights for business . Very nice rooms. Beautiful Bathroom ,Quit, great staff. Good breakfast . I ordered a pizza off the menu in the room. $18.99 when they brought it to my room it was $31.00. I should have sent it back but it was late and I was hungry. Was in the bathroom most of the night with food poisoning..... Other then that it was a great hotel .

Curtis C, General Manager at BEST WESTERN University Inn Santa Clara, responded to this review
Hello 5150rfl, I am glad you enjoyed the guest room, our customer service, and breakfast. That is unfortunate that you had a negative experience regarding the delivery from a local restaurant. While we are not affiliated, we do allow menu's to be placed in the guest rooms. We allow this primarily as an option if a guest wanted something delivered to their room for convenience. This is the first complaint I have heard of in the past 2 years. I know that they share our strong commitment to customer service. I am confident that if you were to call and speak to a manager, they will rectify this issue. If you have any challenges, please reach out to me directly. It would be my pleasure to intervene on your behalf. Even though the prices are marked, and delivery fee is stated, I will follow up with the owner/manager to ensure they are quoting the total amount due at the end of each order for our guests. We hope to welcome you back the next time you are in Santa Clara. At your service, Curtis

"Would not go back"

14/12/2015

I understand that franchises have the right to do what they want. It would be helpful to know their rules before making a reservation and checking in. I made a reservation with one credit card with the intent to use a different credit card upon checking in. I received a phone call around 4pm, the day of arrival, telling me that if I didn't give a different card and call back within 15 minutes the room would be cancelled. I never heard of such a thing. I called back, gave a different card. The person I spoke to got a pre-authorization on the card. I explained that I never heard of this procedure. I was given a rushed and rude explanation on the phone. Since I didn't have time to find another hotel, I stuck with this place. Once I arrived, I was asked for the card I gave on the phone, thinking it was just to see it. He swiped it again. I asked what are you doing since you charged me once. He said its "for security purposes and I wont be charged until I check out." I said you have a pre-authorization why do you need another one? He gave the same rambling explanation that didn't make sense. What is the security measure that's needed at 4pm on check in day? I have stayed at many hotels around the country and around the world. Hyatt, Marriott, Hilton, Doubletree, Ritz, Four Seasons etc .and have NEVER needed 2 pre-authorizations for a reservation. If I didn't show up or not follow cancellation policy, then they have every right to charge me. But to get a "pre-authorization" before I arrive and then to obtain a 2nd one makes no sense???? What is the purpose of that other than to rip people off. As travelers know, if you tie up people's credit line with pre-authorizations, that is also a nuisance. Maybe I was only going to be "charged" once but why are they tying up people's credit line? If security is such as issue at your hotel then tell people that is an issue on your website before making a reservation. What does security mean, fraud? Since he wasn't interested in explaining why to me and he wasn't friendly nor professional in his approach, my only conclusion is that they want to rip people off by double "pre-authorizing" them. My advice is pay more and stay elsewhere unless you know what their scam means.

Curtis C, General Manager at BEST WESTERN University Inn Santa Clara, responded to this review
Hello CabZinlvr, I apologize that our procedures disrupted your stay with us. All major brands require a valid credit card at the time of the reservation to guarantee the room. Hotels have this guarantee to ensure you have a room even if the hotel over sells. If the guest however does not show up and does not cancel the reservation the first night is charged as a no-show charge. If however the credit card is declined for any reason, we would have no way to recover the lost revenue. While we are not obligated to contact the guest, we go above and beyond to personally contact each guest with a declined credit card to confirm the intention to stay with us. This procedure generally allows us enough time to sell the room to another guest if given the opportunity. While we did authorize the card, we are required to physically swipe the credit for both your security and ours. This shows that we had the credit card in hand at the time of check in. I did confirm that your credit card was only authorized once. The charge for your room was taken from the pre-authorization and was not an additional authorization. At your service, Curtis

Stayed in the hotel for 20 days in November 2015 as I was participating to a training near by. Hotel is near Santa Clara center and everything is close by. Beakfast was full filling and quality good, sinle room I stayed was normal for the hotel rating and the only thiing I would change there is the un nesessary chair that was there, to me it was waste of space used it to store the execessive amount of pillows. Staff is friendly and helpfull, alltough didn't have any "real" problems, but am confidence that they will address those professionally too. Guest laundry works nice and detergents are available at the reception, didn't use the gym but it looked nice enough as well didn't use the outdoor pool as the weather was quite chilly. Near hotel is, in walking distance, several restaurants, hence hotel has none, I guess. Several shopping malls at El Camino Real easy to access by car. For hotels classification over all fealing left me a positive feeling and can easily think to stay there again.

Looks rough from the out side, but the rooms are updated and pretty nice. Parking is tight if you are late getting back to your room. Seems to fill up with big trucks for some reason. Not sure about that one. Closer to the Airport than I expected which was nice. If I am in the area I will defiantly consider this place again.

This was a great experience. I visited Santa Clara on a business trip and everything was great. I experienced a very Friendly staff, a clean room, excellent breakfast every morning with a large variety of foods to choose from and the location was great. The location is conveniently located and fairly close to restaurants. 100% Satisfaction on my 6 Day business trip.

"Best Western - Epic Fail!!"

1
24/10/2015

We stayed at this hotel for only one night. It was one of the most horrific nights I have ever had in a hotel and the frustration has only continued on for what is now 7 weeks later. We arrived late after a very long day of travel & fell asleep fast. We were awakened at roughly midnight to the sound of other guests of the hotel having a wild 'parking lot party' right below our room. Full high end stereo blasting, and dozens of people milling around the parking lot and rooms. They were running up and down the stairs, along the walkways, yelling, screaming, slamming doors...I felt like I was in a dance club - not kidding here!!! We made three calls to management - after the 2nd call, he finally called the police (after he tried to say I should deal with it). The party started up immediately after the police left...another phone call to the manager and nothing. I suspect he was hiding under his desk - clearly incompetent and/or completely untrained & incapable of handling the responsibility of his job. We had no sleep all night, were exhausted and miserable the next morning, were late starting our travels and subsequently did not get to see everything we had intended to see due to the late start. We complained again (to the day manager) before leaving and a couple of days later I received an apology email from the general manager promising a full refund. Well that's where the long drawn out relationship with this hotel chain has continued...to date I have had ZERO refund. I have contacted both the hotel and Best Western Head Office. The hotel manager has at least responded to my emails & appears to be making an effort (to no avail). But Head Office clearly does not care about it's customers & has basically tossed me out on my butt & advised me that they requested the refund and now it is up to me to find out why I haven't received it. That's some great customer service!! Sorry but the right way to do things would be to follow up with your request Best Western and find me an answer...you should make this right, not me!! Thanks Best Western Head Office for taking care of your customers - NOT. Serious EPIC FAIL!!! So, my advice to you dear travellers...stay the hell away from any Best Western!! You might well have a good stay, but if something goes wrong, they will take your money & toss you aside to make room for the next sucker. We have used Best Western more times than I can count and because of their lack of customer service skills, I am being forced to find a hotel that appreciates their customers. Thanks Curtis for at least trying...your company has failed you.

Curtis C, General Manager at BEST WESTERN University Inn Santa Clara, responded to this review
Hello Outdoorgirl08, I deeply apologize for the issues you encountered while staying with us. When I became aware of them, I offered a full refund. Because you had used your AirMiles for your stay with us, a third party was involved besides the hotel and Best Western corporate. We generally receive credit on our Best Western invoice for these reservations, which is why I involved the corporate office. I needed their assistants to start the process to return your AirMiles. I confirmed that Best Western immediately contacted the travel agent to request a full refund of your miles. When you emailed me 3 weeks later I confirmed once again that the request was made. I personally contacted the AirMiles department and was informed that my wait time would be 2 hours to speak with a customer service representative. Once I opted to be called back, I was informed the wait time will be 4 hours. I received a call after 4 hours and waited an extra hour for my call to be answered. Once I spoke with a customer service representative, I was informed that I would need to speak with her supervisor. I was told that there were no calls ahead of me and I would not need to wait. After waiting for 1 more hour, I decided to call back the next day. When I called back the auto attendant said the wait time was 15 minutes. After waiting 1 hour, it was clear that they did not intend to take any calls. Their automated message also said that the office will be closed the following day for an important meeting. I will continue to reach out to the third party travel agent until this is resolved. I deeply apologize for the extra aggravation as both Best Western corporate and myself has made every effort to return your miles. At your service, Curtis

Stayed here while visiting from overseas to see a 49ers game. This hotel and its staff were excellent! Upon arrival, The lady at the counter, Marisol, was so welcoming and helpful, it really made our experience enjoyful. We arrived early but she took our bags and arranged the next available room for us. She is really a credit to the business and gave a personal touch we haven't experienced at a lot of hotels. The hotel has great rooms and facilities, pool and gym etc. I definitely recommend staying here if you are in Santa Clara

This was an excellent Best Western. The place was clean and beautiful; the place quiet and comfortable. An excellent hotel breakfast (real oatmeal!) and very comfortable beds. We will stay here again when in the Santa Clara area.

Hello Jan S, Thank you for the great review. Our breakfast has been evolving over the past year based on the valuable feedback we receive from our guests. We do offer all of the breakfast items Best Western requires such as cereal, yogurt, juice, pastries, and waffles. We also wanted to go above and beyond by adding hot items such as scrambled eggs with green onions, seasoned cut potatoes, sausage, and fresh oatmeal with organic dried fruit toppings,. We also offer a freshly cut fruit salad as part of our complimentary upgraded breakfast buffet. We look forward to welcoming you back. At your service, Curtis

The outside was nicely decorated, the rooms were clean and trendy décor. The staff was very friendly and fast. The bed was comfortable. Unfortunately the guests were a bit rowdy early Sunday morning getting ready for the football game (stadium is very close) but not much staff can do about that. Overall nice place to stay.

Been there for a 10 day trip. Nice big clean rooms, with good beds. The parking are right outside the rooms. The pool are not that big, but deep, and are great for a little swim after a long hot day. The breakfast is good and there are lot to chose from. The area around the hotel are very local, there are a new center close by, with a few resturants and fastfood chains.

"Hidden Gem in Santa Clara"

21/09/2015

I am a very frequent traveler and I travel all over the world. This hotel located in a convenient location in Santa Clara is truly a hidden gem. The hotel is very cozy and have an excellent hotel staff, from reception to house keeping. The hotel is small enough such that there is no waiting line to check-in. I can pull up my rental car directly to the front office without any hassle. Check-in, friendly reception gives me the key, and then park the car in front of my room, then enter the very comfortable room. Check-out is the same way. No, to add, there is no parking fee. Thus, the price performance at this hotel, considering silicon valley, probably the best, if not near best. But let me stress, this hotel has one of the best hotel staff I have encountered. Always customer first! Good job!

We stayed here for one night as we were going to Levi Stadium to see the 49ers. Very friendly welcome and was served and into our rooms very quickly. Rooms looked like they had been refurbished - very clean and ver comfortable. Good location with the normal restaurants, McDonalds etc very close by. Breakfast was a massive high with a good range of items to sample.

For the price I paid, I thought that I got a decent deal in that neighbourhood. Good rooms, Wifi was extremely fast and the breakfast was good. Small gym but was better than nothing. My only issues were with my experience with the front desk that could have been much better on more than one occasion. I have had them hang up on me and on a separate occasion even forget to inform me that my taxi had arrived (which then left without my knowing).

Curtis C, General Manager at BEST WESTERN University Inn Santa Clara, responded to this review
Hello Rajarshi R, Thank you for taking the time to write a review regarding your stay with us. I am glad that you enjoyed the Wifi, breakfast, and that the fitness room met your needs. We opened our fitness room 1 year ago and filled it with all the professional equipment that would fit. Our fitness room consists of 10 sets of dumbbells ranging from 5 pounds to 50. We also added 2 adjustable dumbbell benches, 2 treadmills, a new elliptical machine, and a recumbent bicycle. There is also 2 yoga mats and 2 inflatable fitness balls to help maintain almost any fitness routine. I deeply apologize that you did not receive a call regarding your taxi request. We have a brand new front desk associate that misunderstood your room number. We understand how important these details are, and will continue to work hard to ensure the best experience possible. I hope that you will consider staying with us again so that we can have another chance to provide you with a superior experience. At your service, Curtis
