“Not a 3 star hotel at all.”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

My wonderful husband booked me a room off of price line. Thinking he was getting a great deal for a 3 start hotel. No it was old and very run down looks more like a 70's porn hotel. The water kept going hot and cold on me. Plus the water presser was very low in the shower. The bedding looked new and bright gave a other wise drab room some color. The paper work in the room was all outdated. how tacky to have a menu with a x in pin saying no room service starting Jan 2009. My room key stopped working twice not a huge deal but annoying yes. You can tell the carpet has not been up dated from the smell or they need to clean them pretty bad. The mini fridge in my room was rusted and musty smelling. There was dried dog poop on the walk ways from the rooms to lobby. Yes the breakfast was pretty nice and the staff was friendly that is why it got two stars. I don't know if Ramada owns the place or the owners rent the name but its a sad sad Ramada hotel.

Dear Mamasass,

We appreciate you take the time out of your busy schedule to post the review about recent stay with us. We sincerely apologize that your wonderful husband booked a room for you through Priceline and not meeting your hotel expectations. Feedbacks, both positive or negative is important to us to improve our service on a daily basis. Also know your comments will be addressed to our management team as well as the hotel owners.

Although we are a pet frendly hotel and the dog/cat owners are responsible for their pets, hard to believe there are dried dog poops on the walk-ways. Perhaps it was a result of our professional gardener using a grass aerator for the cortyard?? We have few housemen cleans property on a daily basis that I am certain they would pick up dried dog poops if in fact there was one!

We are the first hotel opened in a wonderful city of Sunnyvale and without hardworking of maintenance crews, we wouldn't be standing here today. It is very unfortunate that you didn't get to enjoy some of our "antique items" still existing here at the property.

Mamasass, we appreciate your time and business!

We are pleasantly surprised. It looks a bit like an 80s motel from the parking lot. However, it is a great place to stay in. The bed was really comfortable and the room was really clean. The room was modern enough and very spacious for the price. The only thing missing is a microwave. It has a fridge, but no way to heat up what is in the fridge. If they remedied this, they could earn the fifth star.

Room Tip: The back of the hotel is the quietest.

Dear William P,

Glad to learn that your recent stay with us was "pleasantly surprised one." We thank you for posting your review on Tripadvisor.

Although we provide a micorwave in the lobby area, we get many feedbacks about putting a microwave in the guestrooms. We value both positive and negative feedbacks from our guests; however as you mentioned, being an older property is the challenge with limited outlets in the room. Please know your comments will be addressed to our owners and see if there's anything we can do to make your future stay "5 star experience."

William P, we thank you again for your time and business. We appreciate them both and we look forward to welcoming you in the future!

Stayed here recently on a business trip and would definitely return if in the area. The check-in process was very quick and friendly. I had a package delivered earlier in the day and it was at the front desk when I arrived. The room, while very old school '80s motel feel, was very clean. My only downside was the shower which gave me quite the leg workout. I had to keep my knees bent to keep my body under the water as the shower head was so incredibly low. Breakfast the next morning was really good too, especially considering it was free. A very nice selection of danishes and muffins, cereal, bagels, etc. Price was super great too, which drew me here in the first place.

Dear Kreskin2207,

Thank you for posting your review on Tripadvisor about your recent stay with us. We are pleased to learn that we met your hotel needs.

As you mentioned, we are an older property; however we strive ourselves in providing friendly guest services as well as the clean guestrooms. We sincerely apologize about getting some "leg workout" while taking the shower. To be honest with you, I am not quite sure if we could raise the shower head in our existing bathroom, but I will check with our maintenance staff to find out.

As for our complimentary continental breakfast, we recently changed the settings of the breakfast that you may have to fly out to California to check one out! Should you return to the Bay Area, we look forward to welcoming you.

We thank you for choosing Ramada Silicon Valley.

Delightful front desk staff. Comfortable bed. Good breakfast. And great price. Not new, kind of reminds me of home.

Room Tip: We got aassigned room in the back and it was very quiet.
