This is a newer hotel with modern design It’s located right next to a big shopping mall, many convenience stores, supermarket, restaurants The hotel is kid friendly and it has a long swimming pool if you want to do lap swim

That is a rare amenity Oh, it’s half outdoor with half shade but it is heated !! The staff is nice and very responsive to our request Room is clean with a great view of the mountain and a cute dog park

Wonderful experience staying here while house hunting after a cross country move Every person that I interacted with on staff was warm and kind They helped me with a number of unusual requests without hesitation and I felt very supported with the special needs of the stay

The food at the restaurant was super delicious and had something for everyone but featured really fresh ingredients and outstanding flavors Pro tip – request a room with a core of the dog park- delightful Highly recommend!

I really don’t ever leave reviews, but this hotel was fantastic It was very clean, the rooms had very nice views, and the surrounding area has a lot of food options The staff and management also went above and beyond to make my stay great

I was (to my bad fortune) working nights while on business travel, and was having a hard time sleeping during the day with the sound of footsteps above me Not their fault at all, people move around during the day, just my bad luck The front desk allowed me to move to a top floor room no problem and I slept like a baby I also found the HVAC units to be very quiet The staff was kind and the restaurant staff was so kind as well, as was the bartender There was a small mix up with one of my call in orders (no problem, humans make mistakes, and I called close to kitchen close time) The bartender was kind enough to give me a drink on the house, and my food was brought to my room I totally understand mistakes happen, so it wasn’t necessary, but it really shows how much the staff here cares about their guests If I’m out for work travel again I will certainly be staying here

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here The breakfast was outstanding and changed everyday The hotel staff were always friendly and attentive

We had an issue with a shower drain that was resolved within hours and while we were out somewhere on the coast This hotel was very relaxing and really offered a great location for us to do just about anything we wanted Definitely will be booking here again in the future

kelseyleann17

The hotel lobby was beautiful I was shocked at how fancy this hotel was as soon as I came in the door The room did not disappoint at all

There was a big bath tub and everything was so clean The bed was so comfortable and the room was spacious Highly recommend this hotel The free breakfast option was great too Plus you had the option to use it for a free cocktail between 5-6pm That was a first!

Hugh Aaron

This is an update to my earlier reviews We are wrapping up an 8 day stay in one of the “villas,” which are the Grand Hotel’s premium rooms They are located in two story building behind the main hotel

Initially we were placed in a first floor villa room That room was disappointing There were some minor maintenance issues but the biggest problem was noise from the room above oursWe brought the problem to the attention of the front desk staff They were very responsive, particularly Mona, who is wonderful They offered to allow us to move to a second floor villa room, which we did The second floor room is completely quiet and there are no maintenance issues We are delighted with our new roomThe hotel is older and they may still be catching top on some deferred maintenance from the Covid slowdown, however, the gardens are attractive, the breakfast is upscale compared to most chain hotels (with multiple hot options each morning) and the complimentary afternoon beer and wine is a nice touchWe would stay here again but we would request a second floor villa room or, for a shorter stay, a room in the main hotel

Sam was the night desk woman She was so kind and after hrs driving around trying to find a place We found this Gem

EVERYONE is nice Upon walking in we knew we’d love it for our stay The rooms are very nice and impeccably clean Felt so comfortable Roomy rooms and beds are so comfortable Now moving along to breakfast LOVED the idea of them serving us It was set up with class They handled the food with gloves No slop from visitors Very clean The refrigerator was a great idea it had sealed fruit, yogurt, and milk which was self served Cereal was served by personnel which was boxed not in those funky turning thing The did have out a pancake machine with a touch only of a button They came out of bottom All you needed to do was place a plate underneath it Overall, I have absolutely not one complaint Elizabeth was a very nice and informative woman Need anything you just call 5 star for me people and I’m tuff Referring to Overall experience Thanks Maple Tree Inn

chamisa crockett

This is place is a gem It was so clean, the staff were super friendly and helpful I loved the jacuzzi and pool, my daughter and I practically lived there during our stay

Super quiet location, but not far from restaurants, and grocery stores About 15 mins away from Great America, and an hour from Sant Cruz Beach boardwalk Not to mention a decent free breakfast, normally bacon, scrambled eggs, pancakes,yogurts,fruits ,pastries, with coffee and juices Definitely booking again

Zoe Field

gave us the wrong room at check in, was combative about changing it (despite having paid for two beds, was given one) and refused to give us any more than three towels as three women The pool had no towels at all (hence why we needed more towels, also have you ever tried to shower with one hotel towel that isn’t full sized with long hair?) They kept repeating that they told me I need to leave my dirty towels outside of the room before noon to get clean ones, I don’t need clean ones, I need MORE TOWELS

Not only did they respond defensively, but completely refused to give us any extra towels at allThe breakfast was cold, you don’t get turndown service daily, and the facilities are so-so really disappointing two night stay for over $400 I recommend staying somewhere nicer for more money if you’re already willing to shell out this amount for this place

SIX MONTHS I gave this hotel in advance to get it right I had booked a hotel for 2 guests, my treat to stay at this location for a concert at Shoreline While booking the hotel I asked what was needed so my guests would have zero costs accrued to them checking in or out

I was told to send back a form authorizing all charges as well as my ID and front and back of credit card to 1 Hold the room 2 Hold for incidentals 3 Charge the room upon check out Easy enough right? I guess not I checked in with this hotel THREE TIMES in order to ask if they needed anything else from me I kept being assured it was fine Well what would you know my guests were charged the $220 upon checkout which is double upsetting because they never should have been asked for a card in the first place How embarrassing when you are attempting to host a couple for a weekend out I am fuming mad, the hotel also looks great in the pictures and is barely hanging on to budget motel status in person I would give zero stars if I could

Sarah Yearian

The room was clean and beautiful The grounds are beautiful We had a king bed that was more of a queen

It is a Murphy bed The walls are extremely thin You can hear every noise upstairs and next-door Also if you’re on the first floor by the lobby you hear every one coming and going This is a solid place to stay if you are not a light sleeper Also their key maker wasn’t working so evey time we entered they had to open our door

Jason Matsumoto

It’s a decent little hotel, but the photos and marketing are a bit misleading, in my opinion It tries to sell itself as an upscale, boutique hotel with the website and photos showing the admittedly very nice grounds and common areas However, the actual rooms are not that nice, you can hear everything through the thin walls, and one of the 3 staff we interacted with wasn’t all that friendly (though the other two were extremely friendly and professional)

On the plus side, there’s a nice trail directly adjacent to the property, they have bikes that can be borrowed, and the prices are good We still checked out after the first night due to the noise

First, I have to admit that I did not stay at the hotel However, I frequently stay in the area for work and decided to drop in to check out the facility for future stays My colleague and I ordered a specialty coffee at the snack bar

The service was fine, and we were in awe of the design and architecture It was very cool and a seemingly great concept for the area Unfortunately, as soon as we sat down with our coffee we began to notice how filthy the place was While there were probably a total of 8 people in the whole place, most every table was dirty – paper wrappers, drink rings, crumbs, etc Then we noticed the floor They have a cool trendy concrete tile near the bar that I can assure you has not seen a mop in many, many days or weeks Given the current COVID environment, we got uncomfortable with the complete lack of cleanliness Before leaving, my colleague went to the restroom and reported that it was worse than the dining area in terms of uncleanliness The place is cool and clearly a lot of money has been invested in the facility I understand that staffing is also currently a challenge, but I must say that if the conditions we saw in the public areas are at all representative of the lodging accommodations, there is no way we would consider staying there I wish the best, but encourage you to elevate focus on the details – including providing a clean, germ-free environment

Micah Harvey

Every part of this hotel was well done From the interior design, the high-end equipment in the large fitness center, the friendly staff, the rooms, and the outdoor spaces Honestly, this is one of the best hotels I’ve stayed at for the money

I love the air and space theme that was throughout There are so many cool nooks and spaces to hang out, eat, socialize or relax Certainly not the last time I’ll be staying here If you’re in the area for a concert at the Shoreline Amphitheater, this is the ideal place to stay

Brett Kho

we had a superb experience at this hotel for professional purposes, with Front Porch mountain view association everything was extremely clean and lots of cool spaces in the lobby area The gym is pretty decent with the weights and the amount of sunshine we get at the pool was also perfect! Great location directly north of downtown Mountain View

All five star ratings are correct and well deserved We came to stay for a couple of days in the room with roll in shower The manager kindly upgraded us to the one bedroom unit

The room was perfect except for the excessively soft bed, which is present in many American hotels The hotel is new, the manager and all staff are friendly and helpful Breakfast includes a good selection of hot foods The waffle machine is a hit I wish I lived here

Michelle Kim

Very Disappointed We were there about 2 1/2 weeks because of their covid restriction, we were able to receive only 2 cleaning done during our stay

We requested a few times but they said they cannot clean the room while persons are in the room I am 8 months pregnant and my husband was working so we could not get the service but I tried to keep things clean Everything was okay We had about 3 fire alarms ran so we had to evacuate the building twice (one was off quickly) However, They charged us 163 for cleaning fee at the end without notifying us saying that they had to deep clean ? We even used out own comforters and pillows and funny thing was that we got our cleaning the day before our check out so it was pretty cleans plus we spent almost $3000 since we booked 1bed room suite It is expensive I contacted the manager a several times He finally got back and he said he will give me a refund 2 weeks later, I am still waiting for a refund I tried to reach out to the manager a couple times today but no luck!!! Please check your bill still ask for a cleaning because they will charge you if you did not take out the small trash bags out when you check out! ridiculous And Please give me my refund!!

Jessy K

I stayed here for a few weeks since my apartment had flooded, and the customer service was incredible! Very flexible to accommodating me when I needed to extend my stay, and when I had realized I left some items in the hotel a month after I had left, the front desk, especially Andrea, was kind enough to search the hotel for my items without giving up and send them to me 100% recommend if you need a stay in the sunnyvale area 🙂

Jovic Bermas

The digital check in was superb Some of the staff reception were nice, but some weren’t No eye contact during conversation, not wearing a smile

Not pleasant I requested for a late checkout and was only given an hour extra, my Hilton Gold member status didn’t value much My digital key was deactivated at the original check out time even if I requested a late checkout so I had to go back in the reception to remind them, they gave me a physical card to access my room The location was okay I wish the pool was indoor and bigger in size

Warren Rehman

Location was great Service was good My one complaint was the thin walls and ceilings

I had to ask to be moved because my neighbor was watching TV at 3am quite loudly and woke me The staff were really supportive with getting another room, however in my new room I could hear my neighbor talking on the phone – not yelling – just talking at a normal volume, and I could hear what they were saying This has to be an issue with inadequate sound proofing On my next stay I had a similar issue and this time it was an upstairs guest stomping around that woke me up The restaurant and bar staff are super friendly and the food was delicious Tip from the staff, book the top floor by selecting a room with snacks and avoid noisy guests!

Karla Escobar

Great place to stay near downtown Sunnyvale and close to the airport Had a long term stay here and found it easy to park, a decent sized gym, and friendly staff Didnt have any of the food on site and you do have to drive to get healthier food options, but dishndish across the street is pretty awesome

Do have fridge and microwave in the room which helped when not wanting to order out

Very nice hotel overall Comfortable clean room Good size, including safe and refrigerator

Coffee maker and most amenities provided Very nice bathroom with good space One thing to note is that only one drawer was in the room, and the shampoo, shower gel, and conditioner was fixed to the wall of the shower Also the bathtub was large but did not allow for a bath to be taken because the drain stop seemed to be intentionally disabled

Pamela Olesen

I rarely give five stars but as I try to think about what could have been better to get a fifth star, I can’t think of anything criticalRooms are be modern, staff were friendly, atmosphere is great, ❤️ the hydration stations!The only thing I’ve found in the last few Marriotts is a lack of shelf/bench/ledge

anything to make shaving your legs even possible in the shower

David Wells

I wanted to like this hotel stay more; however, there were a lot of little inconveniences that frustrated me As a frequent traveler I’m used to things being different than what I’m used to, but things like the light switches either seemed to regularly not function, or just be incredibly unintuitive The overhead light in the entryway fell out of it’s housing on my first day staying in my room

The gym was incredibly stuffy (temperature was fine, just zero airflow) Also, everyday the room was cleaned, whoever did the cleaning turned the hand faucet so it pointed out of the shower door at high pressure, so almost every morning I gave the bathroom a nice spritzing of water before I had to turn it back to a position that made sense There were a few other oddities, but again, hotel was mostly just fine other than weird things that kept popping up regularly

This Hampton Inn is conveniently located within walking distance to downtown Mountain View It’s easy to get to the freeway from the hotel too I was traveling for business and the hotel is close to where I need to be

There are plenty of parking spaces in the back of the hotel The room I stayed in was clean and well maintained Breakfast was good They only provide cleaning by request at this time It’s a good location and nice accomodation I’ll stay there again when I’m in the area

Mike Jackson

The hotel is adequate The price over the last year has ranged from $104/nt to $270/nt At $104, it’s a great hotel

At $270, it’s barely adequate It is in a good location for me so that’s why I stay there The breakfast is OK, but the Sunnyvale Hampton puts on a better standard Hampton breakfast No pool or hot tub No housekeeping unless you ask for it specifically

qswawrq q

Room is not sound proof We can hear cars passing by on the street clearly in the night Not good for light sleeper

They do not allow any late check out and charge $2 for a bottle water even for diamond members Room clean provided every two days and you have to remember to request itSuper bad experience Not recommended

James Moses

First off the staff is very friendly and accommodating! The hotel itself is nice, the rooms are clean and quiet, and the pool area has a great BBQ station It is an older hotel and the mattress is a little to firm but for a short stay it’s not bad It is a little hard to get into the parking lot from the expressway because of all the construction going on in the area

All and all a nice hotel!

Elizabeth

Room was recently redone, which was nice, but smelled musty/like animals Toilet had a slow leak and refilled periodically in the middle of the night, waking me up Bed wasn’t that comfortable, very firm

Breakfast buffet was meager and they are NOT offering the evening reception that most Residence Inns have I will not be going back

Daniel Mason

Staff was very friendly and helpfulThe amenities are nice, with a well equipped gymThe area was quiet and the room was comfortable

Will definitely stay here again and would recommend to anyone visiting the area

It was perfectly located for my trip but what made our stay THEE BEST was the staff! Crystal was so helpful, engaging and had such great energy that we actually stayed a second night The beds and amenities were EXCELLENT!!! A very satisfying selection of breakfast options from the eats all the to the option for juices Also the breakfast area had places to mingle and watch the morning news or what have you

OH YEAH, OUR NEXT VISIT WE ARE USING THE UNBELIEVABLY BLUE POOL!!! LOL A GREAT STAY ALL THE WAY! Thanks Crystal

Arthur Hsu

The elevator makes a lot of noises at 4th floor (not sure it’s the AC or the elevator itself) Room cleaning knocks door at 8am? I’m pretty sure I asked for afternoon cleaning when I checked-in online In-room AC unit also is very loud

Pre-pandemic free coffee in the morning and afternoon happy hours are all gone Understandable but sadGood parts: decent shower, large and nice bed, lots of plugs for gadgetsThings can improve:* Elevators need TLC* Free bottled water for the room* Room cleaning hours, I’d suggest 10a to 5p* Better quality soap/shampoo, maybe disposable shavers* Indoor AC unit needs TLC* Indoor TV unit can use TLC Channels are so bad, maybe consider using YouTube instead?

This is the best hotel I have ever stayed in We went here the night of our wedding and the experience here exceeded all of our expectations The shower is fantastic with multiple outlets and excellent water pressure

The bed is extremely comfortable The room is very private When I went down to get breakfast, the owner and staff personally prepared my tray and helped me carry it to my room They included extra sweet gifts to congratulate our wedding

We stayed at Hotel Strata for a weekend It was an easy choice for me when I seen all of the amenities and the location is great as well Making reservations were easy and all the information was sent to us in an email so I felt very secure about my stay

My husband and I were warmly welcomed and the check in was a breeze We loved the room that we stayed in The bed was so comfortable and it was a dream to relax and watch a movie on the 65 inch TV My husband loved the heated floors and the shower! I mean everything we could have needed or wanted was provided to us for our stay It almost made us not want to leave We love that rolling table which was an awesome surprise The hotel felt very safe I cant forget they have access to pathwater refillable stations on each level I mean how cool is that The continental breakfast was delicious and I love the espresso machine The Owners were kind enough to share a great place for my husband and I to adventure to on our way home! We truly enjoyed our stay and are already making plans for a trip in May, we plan on requesting the same room 🙂

Strata is amazing you won’t regret staying here The hotel staff treat you like family, and do their absolute best to take care of anything, going above and beyond My fiancé and I are moving from Austin Texas to Mountain View for work, and Strata is our first stop which means, we have a LOT of luggage, a bunch of stuff that we need to figure out, and the staff here made things super easy for us

Here, you are not just a room number, you are a person with unique needs and they definitely show that they care in every interaction you have Staff members here are patient, accommodating, and very sweet to help us sign packages, answer questions We can not be more grateful There is complimentary breakfast in the morning and snacks all day Their bike rental program is also very convenient while we wait for the car to be delivered Walking distance to grocery stores Highly recommend, would give 10 stars if there is an options

We were forced to stay here as our 1 month advance booking which was confirmed at another Marriott was shifted to this place to as they were overbookedRooms are very good Nice and clean

But no one comes to housekeeping everyday, that’s surprisingPlenty of parking was available when we cameAnd the breakfast was everyday the same, sausage, scrambled eggs and oats, milk, juice etc which can definately be improved

Not the best hotel as such but definitely up there Great value for the price paid Really helpful staff and the location is amazing!Not the biggest issue but there are multiple buildings and my room was very far from the help desk

Would help to have a secondary help desk if possible

This was my first stay in over 2 years Not sure if it’s the result of the pandemic staff shortage, but they would only service the room if you ask for it On one day they didn’t service it even after I asked for it to be before leaving the room in the morning

I hope this is a temporary issue as I really like this place due to the convenient location

I want to be clear that this is not a bad hotel by any means Certainly not a hotel horror story you hear about At the same time, I was slightly disappointed based on the reviews I had read, so I thought I would post

To start, I thought based on the pictures online that a “premier room with balcony”, would have a room overlooking the pool, or a hood view of the town at least based on the pictures I saw online My room overlooks the parking lot, freeway, and a strip mall across the street Not a huge thing, but somethingThe jacuzzi was down when I was there Not hot, no bubbles Again, not a game changer, but just something And when I did visit the pool, there were people present who were glaring at me and my son We didn’t feel comfortable or welcomed and so we left that area Again, not something to make a big deal of, I could have said something and didn’t But somethingI think a fair comparison in any hotel review is a Motel 6 Everyone has stayed at a Motel 6 before You know what you’re getting into with a Motel 6 – cheaper, pretty bare bones, nothing to write home about, someplace (usually safe) you can lie your head at night There are better places, equal to, and worse places to stay than a Motel 6… I feel like my experience here has been equal to a Motel 6 Which I don’t think is a slam (again, not a bad experience), but also, just a very average hotel stay when I definitely paid what I think was premier hotel pricing I had to pay for overnight parking, which I didn’t see advertised anywhere, and I was even told upon check-in that housekeeping is only coming to rooms once every three days I’m sure that is a cost-saving measure at this point, but those cost savings are not being reflected in the pricePerhaps I’m being slightly unfair in that I didn’t speak with staff before writing this I’m not sure what they could have done though short of reducing the price, which I’m not sure is a fair ask They can’t change the view off my balcony or make people not look at me And again, it’s not a BAD hotel All the staff have been great I just thought I should write something though since I do use reviews myself when picking a hotel

AMAZING STAFF, I was staying here for work and long story short there was an issue in my room and all of the staff did an amazing job taking care of me and even upgrading my room for the inconvenience I wish I knew the names of the other employees but Erin the general manager runs a great hotel with a great team I don’t think I have ever been treated so well staying at a hotel than they did here

The rooms were super clean, and looked great They have a bar and small dining area serving breakfast lunch and dinner with a wonderful bar tender I will always choose this place when staying in the area again Thanks Erin and team!

Matthew Gant

The room wasn’t fully cleaned Notes from someone’s take out order left on the dresser Garbage in the hallway sitting for hours

The hot tub wasn’t heated Refrigerator in the room didn’t work The free breakfast area was closed They just had a few items in a basket with an empty coffee container There’s an extra cost for everything $12 a day for parking with signs everywhere saying they’re not responsible if anything happens to your car So obviously things are happening to the cars

I have stayed at this Hilton location as well as others and for the most part my stays have been comfortable On this trip my room was comfortable but there was a noise problem There was banging and stopping about above me as well as loud person (and TV) adjacent to me

I will have to ask for a quiet area of the hotel if there is a next time staying there Something else of mention, I have stayed at other Hilton Garden locations that offer a free morning buffet but this one is not one of them so if you are looking for that offering you will be disappointed They do have complimentary coffee though I usually opt for Starbucks up the street

We stayed here while receiving medical treatment at Stanford Hospital The owner and cleaning staff were very helpful and accommodating to our needs The rooms have been completely remodeled

Even though the hotel is right off a major road, the rooms are quiet at night and we didn’t hear any noise from neighboring rooms There is a lovely patio with outdoor furniture and water features where we spent a lot of time The landscaping is beautiful There are restaurants, Walgreen’s and shopping center within walking distance We enjoyed our stay and have already booked to return

Viki Lowrey

This classic motel has been remodeled with all the modern-day amenities that one could ask for I booked the last room the afternoon of our stay for four nights and was first impressed by the reasonable pricing for the area Upon arrival the young man in the office was warm, caring, professional, and welcoming too

The room was tastefully decorated and immaculately clean You have all the convivences of a fridge, microwave, coffee maker and supplies including free snacks They also offer more free snacks in the office for the taking They even give you a razor and a toothbrush They have covered gazebo type outside seating surround by a beautiful garden and two soothing fountains What a wonderful place to unwind after a long day We were greeted by the owner who took the time to speak with us and even had a bottle of wine brought out for us Above and beyond does not begin to sing the praises of the experience we had during our stay It is home away from home without the hassles of everyday demands Stay here and you to will be glad you did

Amber Lee

Amazing stay here at the Palo Alto Inn The manager is very kind, friendly, and welcoming We felt right at home here for our dead show vacation

The room was nice, clean, and we had a few extra things inside we didn’t expect like snacks, drinks, extra toothbrushes/paste even a razor and shaving cream all free AC blew cold and clean all night and the bed was SO comfy Would definitely stay here againHighly recommendedIf you are a late owl like us, definitely get food before the entire town closes
