"Great Budget Hotel"
I had to make a last-minute reservation for this hotel when my original hotel was found to be completely unsatisfactory in every possible way. The booking process was simple and the hotel is in fantastic shape (looks recently remodeled). The single king room was very large, well-lit, comfortable, and well put together. The only negative part of my stay was that the walls are unfortunately thin/under-insulated and I could hear my neighbors going at it like they were in the same room. That was a bit uncomfortable, but aside from than that one element of everything you can rate this hotel on I would highly recommend it.

My friend and I went to Santa Cruz for my birthday and decided we wanted to go to Winchester Mansion. I found this hotel on Expedia and didn't realize how close it was. Very reasonably priced. It was amazing. The lady at the front desk was so nice and helpful. I would stay here again. The room was really clean and looked great.

"Good and Bad"
The good: 1. The room was large and comfortable. 2. The windows had inside shutters that added a touch of homey-ness 3. Lots of mirror, including a full length mirror. The bad: 1. WiFi was strength was very poor. Had to go outside to get better reception. 2. No towel rack by the sink. 3. No laundry services, no big deal. But when I asked for the nearest laundromat, they steered me to a place a mile away. When I went out for a walk, I found two in the neighborhood, within walking distance.

I booked this at the last minute. It's a strip-mall motel, definitely nothing special. Room was sizable. Had a desk (with grim lighting), and free Internet that was very slow. Bed was comfortable enough. Shower worked fine. Bathroom tile grout was all broken up, needed to be repaired.

"Horrible"
Room smelled like sewer. Toilet was running water from water tank constantly, and to stop it every time after you use toilet you have to lift the tank cover to fix water from running. Door had chipped pieces of wood missing. Towels was not clean, neither bath tub. Outside of hotel area was very sketchy, not safe, I didn’t feel safe in the room. We checked in, went to the room, look around and decided to move out because for two nights I had to stay there by myself and didn’t feel safe at all. Front desk lady was on cell phone busy with her personal conversations and didn’t react on our announcement that we can’t stay in the place like this. Horrible experience.

""Non smoking" room"
I picked a non smoking room, but clearly it had been used as a smoker room before since it smelled strongly of menthol, tobacco and whatever chemical is supposed to cover the smells. The staff is nice and the room was good for the price. It's an ok place to stay overnight, but I definitely don't recommend it if you are not a smoker.

"Good for the price"
Not fancy but quite acceptable for the price. Economical place to spend a couple of nights. Clean and comfortable room, bathroom, and bed. Good maid service, friendly receptionist. I did not try their breakfast, so cannot speak to that. There was a mildly musty smell upon entering the room, but nothing else seriously wrong. This is near the Santa Clara Convention Center, and about 20 minutes to the San Jose Convention Center (where the hotels are ritzier and more than double the price.)

"Good if you are on a budget"
I stayed here because it was 1/2 the price of the other hotels in the area. The room was very clean and functional. It had a coffee maker, microwave, and refrigerator. Buy your own breakfast - the free breakfast is cereal and milk. My biggest complaint is that the hotel has super power lights outside of each room lighting it up. It is good for safety, but hard for sleeping. I had trouble sleeping with the lights so bright outside of my room. They should invest in blackout shades for each room. Otherwise the hotel was clean and pleasant.

"Met our expectation"
We were trying to find a place that would meet our need. We did not seek for luxurious one. This hotel met our expectation. It had everything we needed. Clean, quiet, .... Free wifi (it was fast enough). Free breakfast. Breakfast was not bad according to my standard. One caution: we tried to find the hotel using google map. We copied the address into maps.google.com. But it led us to a wrong place. We had to search around for 5-10 minutes. After asking a person at a market, we found the hotel. It was on the same street, but the street number was confusing. Strangely when we typed the address again to the google map a day later, this time the google map showed the right place. So just be careful. (Still I don't know what happened. :-) )

"Excellent Basic Lodging in Santa Clara"
Although the ratings are low for this property I think they are unfairly low. Obviously, you can't rate a Motel 6 against a Hilton because the Motel 6 would always only get 1 or 2 stars. So I rate properties within the class of lodging that they fit into. For this one, I rated it 4 stars across the board because it provided all I expected and more for basic lodging at a decent price. The location is good with a bunch of other hotels in the same area. There's another hotel with restaurant and bar right across the street and other dining within walking distance. This property is well maintained and appears to have been renovated recently. The room was decent-sized with a comfortable bed and quiet air conditioner, which allowed me a good night's sleep after a tough day of work. Breakfast was OK and provided the basics; coffee, juice, pastries and cereal. Not a place you would take the family for vacation, but if you're a contractor like me looking for a decent place to get a night's rest and not have your work van broken into, then this place meets all the basic requirements.

"Rude and Unfriendly female manager"
The hotel rooms are very small. The idea of putting a fridge and microwave is good, but the rooms are simply too small. The female manager acts like a prison warden when you ask for something, like for the tv to be fixed or the tub to be unclogged. She should be removed from her position if she is that rude and unfriendly. I will never stay their again based on her attitude alone. -Summer 2013.

We stayed with our cat so we had a pet room. It was very nice with a big closet. The only thing wrong was someone had spilled hair color on the rug, but everything was clean and comfortable. We had a desk and a table which was great as my husband and I both were using our laptops. The bed was comfortable and the towels were very clean, white and soft and plush. We were very pleased. Parking was plentiful. We would stay there again.

"Friendly, helpful hotel staff.."
Our usual hotel was booked due to weekend college graduation/activities.. So, we ended up here. It's on a busy, main road, next door to a Pollo Loco food chain. But, it was calm and could not hear any outside noise -so, not a problem. Girls at front counter are friendly and helpful, as is other hotel staff. The so-called 'breakfast included' was a big disappointment -can't totally blame the hotel..it was whoever was in there last. It looked like we just missed a fight or something! Food all over the floor, cereal spilled all over counter, and a broken chair on the floor. Didn't bother and went to a nearby Denny's..

Front desk agent was rude. Only on the 3rd time of asking to check in, did she change rooms around so we could check in a little early. The carpet was sticky in both rooms that were rented. There was urine on the floor around the toilet. The main A/C unit for the building was directly under my room, which made the floor shake. Would not stay here again. Would not recommend to anyone.

"So Pleased"
I normally don't like motel rooms that open to a balcony, but this neighborhood wasn't seedy, and it felt safe. The cost was half that of the Biltmore down the street (my conference location). There's an awesome Chinese restaurant, Cooking Papa, right down the street (get the dessert pastry!) and a ramen restaurant that looked interesting. Lots of Korean restaurants too. The breakfast was in Room 101, which was pretty lame. Every time I went to get juice it would just give me juicy water. For the price, a great value. Cleanliness matters most, and that's exactly what I got.

"Convenient location, clean & pet friendly"
The hotel is pet friendly which is great but the website did not mention any charges nor did they bring it up at check in. The poster was not easily visible on the desk. When I was checking out the receptionist mentioned that there is a $20/day pet fee if we ever came back. She did not charge me this time as she felt it was their omission. The stay was fine. Comfortable, had everything we needed. It is close to stores, pharmacy, restaurants, bank etc. The evening receptionist was very cheerful & helpful. The other staff were more distant. I did appreciate how the pet issue was dealt with.

The Stratford hotel is a good hotel if you just want a nice place to spend a couple of night. I had to work in the area for a week so it was close to where I worked. The outside place seemed clean and not so scary. The room was clean and pretty comforable. There were a couple of bugs flying around but we manage to spray them. The bed was comfortable. The room was clean and I had a good night sleep. I did stay during Dec. 17-Dec. 24 and there were hardly any people around so it was nice and quite. I really enjoyed it when there were hardly anyone around.
