This is an excellent hotel! The staff is friendly and the beds are actually comfortable! We stayed there for a concert we attended at Levi Stadium and it was close enough for us to walk there. We would absolutely recommend this place!

First time visitor. I'll be back. Very clean, well-appointed rooms. Comfortable bed. Room was quiet despite exterior-corridor model. Friendly, capable staff. Great location for Levi, Great America, Conv Center, businesses. Funky old-school video game theme. I'll be back.

Clean and efficient hotel that provides a place to stay at a reasonable price. Unpretentious, what you see is what you get. Limited facilities but providing all basics. Rooms clean and bed very comfortable.

The only drawback is that it is 5 min. away by driving from the Santa Clara Convention Center. So it is not walkable. But it only takes $4 or so to get an Uber to...
