Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
The room was comfortable and very clean. The place was almost completely empty - of at least 100 rooms - probably 6 were occupied. No one around. That was ok, but no frills either - no coffee or tea in lounge for example. That was ok - as we paid an excellent COVID rate...however the person at the desk insisted we needed to sign out a 2 hour timeslot to use the pool - which seemed ridiculous since the COVID occupancy of 16 was almost surely fewer than were staying there. It seemed unnecessarily bureaucratic in a time when rules are everywhere. Also that desk attendant was quite reticent to welcome us or give us any information about where anything was...it was a little sad since Santa Clara was practically a ghost town. The pool was very clean, though, and it was convenient to KP which is where we were headed. Beyond that, it was very nice to be next door to Kisha, a good Indian restaurant with full bar that had an outdoor dining porch - not a parklet- and we enjoyed a lovely dinner.

Rooms are dirty, equipment filthy and have mold!
What can I say?, This use to be my go to hotel when I was in town. My last stay was a nightmare!!! I had to ask to be moved 2x due to the acceptable room conditions. Even when the staff assured me they had check the room and everything was good. I found mold on the walls, to dritty coffee pot with a built-up slime inside and broken tub facets. After my second move I just decide to wait and check out the next day. This hotel is dirty, the rooms are NOT properly clean and maintained. It needs a total over haul. Stay anywhere else but here!
