Garden Court Hotel

Garden Court Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The Garden Court Hotel is a standout boutique property in Downtown Palo Alto. The hotel's beautiful rooms are the highlight; they have elegant white-and-blue decor, upscale amenities, marble bathrooms, and in many, balconies overlooking the quaint courtyard. Property features include an upscale Italian restaurant, 7,000 square feet of meeting space, and a small fitness center. Though there is no spa, the hotel can arrange in-room massages, and owners can bring pets for a one-time fee (which covers pet-friendly amenities such as beds and treats). Those looking for more features -- such as a spa and a pool -- may consider the nearby, 200-room Four Seasons or the Rosewood Sand Hill in Menlo Park, but guests return to the Garden Court for its elegant rooms and intimate vibe.
Domain Hotel, a Joie de Vivre Hotel

Domain Hotel, a Joie de Vivre Hotel Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The Domain Hotel is a 136-room converted motel in Sunnyvale that has been significantly spruced up -- colorful rooms have funky decor and high-tech gadgets, the pool is nice and secluded, and freebies include Wi-Fi and parking. Unfortunately this hotel can't escape its structure, with some rooms that only have windows overlooking the lobby and others that are subject to street noise. The hotel is convenient for business travelers and offers perks like iPod docks, flat-screen TVs, and an outdoor heated pool, but the fitness center is cramped and there have been some complaints of noisy air-conditioning and heating units. The stylish cafe and bar called Bytes is a nice touch and offers free breakfast.
Avatar Hotel, a Joie de Vivre Hotel

Avatar Hotel, a Joie de Vivre Hotel Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The 168-room Avatar Hotel is a 1960s-style motel that has undergone a fun redesign: think funky furniture, shag carpets, and glass cases of toy robots. But despite the modern furnishings with lively colors, many old problems remain, including rooms and windows opening into outdoor hallways -- which results in less privacy -- as well as cramped bathrooms. Perks here include an outdoor heated pool, bright fitness center, and the up-to-date technology expected in a Silicon Valley Hotel. Wi-Fi here is free, and rooms feature flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, and spacious work desks. While the Avatar Hotel attracts mostly business travelers for its central Santa Clara location, the close proximity to the Great America Theme Park is nice for families too.
Coxhead House

Coxhead House Rating: 3.0 Pearls

This historic bed and breakfast features just four cozy rooms, outfitted with features such as walls full of books, fireplaces, hardwood floors, and chandeliers. But some guests complain of worn linens and lack of modern amenities. There is free Wi-Fi in the inn -- and wood-paneled rooms and a small library evoke the pleasures of times past -- but some quirks exist here, such as a room with a detached bathroom, and limited breakfast selections.
Stone Villa Inn San Mateo

Stone Villa Inn San Mateo Rating: 2.0 Pearls

The 45-room Stone Villa Inn San Mateo is a decent, no-frills, motel-like property near downtown San Mateo. The rooms are hit or miss -- some are cozy, clean, and appear recently remodeled, while others are shabby, lack a proper desk, and have stained linens and hard mattresses. The spacious closets and free Wi-Fi are a plus, but the tube TVs and tiny bathroom countertops need to go. The inn offers a free continental breakfast, but it’s just the basics: cereals, bagels, milk, coffee, and juice. Luckily a number restaurants are nearby, so dining options aren't terribly limited. There's no pool or fitness center, but extremely low rates may be all a traveler wants -- making Stone Villa Inn a so-so option for value.
