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.
Moorpark Hotel

Moorpark Hotel Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The 79-room mid-range hotel is part of the boutique chain Joie de Vivre. Rooms don't have as much character as those of other properties in the brand, and decor is basic, with shades of red and a corporate feel. All are contemporary, though, and feature large flat-screen TVs, coffeemakers, and free Wi-Fi. Hotel features include a tasty restaurant, free underground parking, a fitness center, and a standout outdoor pool, with upscale cabanas and a Jacuzzi. Though there is not much within walking distance of the hotel, it is conveniently located just off of Highway 280, so guests can easily travel to spots such as Santana Row (a cluster of restaurants and shops), Downtown San Jose, and the airport. Overall, the Moorpark offers solid value.
Wild Palms Hotel, a Joie de Vivre Hotel

Wild Palms Hotel, a Joie de Vivre Hotel Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The Wild Palms Hotel is the result of a motel renovation, during which the old property was spruced up to fit into the Joie de Vivre hotel profile. The 208 rooms and suites are colorful and Mediterranean-inspired, and offer perks such as free Wi-Fi and generous work desks. Problems from the original motel structure remain, including thin walls, outdoor hallways, and no elevators. While some guests complain about loud air-conditioning units or street noise, the colorful, tropical decor, free breakfast, and heated outdoor pool make it a good pick for travelers looking for value in the Silicon Valley.
Hilton Garden Inn San Mateo

Hilton Garden Inn San Mateo Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The Hilton Garden Inn San Mateo, a short drive to the airport (with free shuttle service) and within a half hour's drive of San Francisco, is primarily built for business travelers. There are multiple meeting rooms and a 24-hour business center outfitted with three computers, fax machine, copy machine, and free printing and Internet. A lobby convenience store has basic snacks for sale, and a coin-operated washer/dryer is nice for those longer business trips. There's a basic restaurant on-site (and limited room service), though better options are within walking distance. Rooms are standard -- basic wood hotel-style furnishings and no-frills bathrooms -- though beds come with adjustable mattresses so guests can choose their level of comfort. Plus, rooms have flat-screen TVs, coffeemakers, microwaves, and mini-fridges. The towels folded into animal shapes is a nice touch upon arrival, too. A fitness center provides modern cardio and weight equipment for a good workout, and there's an outdoor pool with Jacuzzi -- though both are underwhelming at best.
Larkspur Landing Sunnyvale

Larkspur Landing Sunnyvale Rating: 3.0 Pearls

Larkspur Landing feels like a New England B&B -- the cozy lobby has leather couches and hardwood floors, and the rooms feature warm colors, plaids, and super-comfy beds. In addition to free Wi-Fi, stand out features here include the full kitchens in all rooms. While the fitness center is small and the hotel does not have a pool, Larkspur Landing offers more charm than other hotels in this mainly commercial area. Breakfast could have a wider selection, but the hotel has up-to-date technology including flat-screen TVs and iPod docks.
Hyatt Summerfield Suites Belmont Redwood Shores

Hyatt Summerfield Suites Belmont Redwood Shores Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The Hyatt Summerfield Suites Belmont/Redwood Shores is a 132-room extended stay hotel. The modern rooms cater to vacationing families and business travelers alike, and are outfitted with spacious living areas, fully equipped kitchens, and work areas with desks. The hotel offers a free breakfast buffet, and while it’s filling (with bacon, waffles, and fruit), guests might find the powdered eggs unappetizing. There’s also an “Evening Social” event Monday through Thursday in the lounge with free finger foods, wine, and beer -- a nice way to unwind and meet fellow guests. The outdoor pool and adjacent grilling and picnic area are great for families, and the fitness center and sports court provide options for a good workout. However, it's not a full-service hotel and thus lacks the basics, such as an on-site restaurant and a porter to help with luggage (there’s no elevator). There are restaurants nearby, but otherwise the hotel is a bit isolated, and without a car it’s difficult to get around.
Hotel Avante

Hotel Avante Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The Hotel Avante is a renovated motel in Mountain View with a convenient location to downtown and area corporations. This 91-room hotel is particularly business-friendly, offering free Wi-Fi, conference rooms, and even executive toy boxes including items such as a Rubix cube. Quirky rooms are colorful and stylish, and feature furniture on wheels so guests can create an ideal workspace. Aside from movable furniture, room decor is masculine, with pops of color and bold striped rugs, along with large flat-screen TVs. This hotel offers many conveniences including free breakfast, a free weekday shuttle, and a small fitness center, but the one standout feature here is a nice outdoor pool complete with Jacuzzi and lounge chairs.
Residence Inn Palo Alto Mountain View

Residence Inn Palo Alto Mountain View Rating: 3.0 Pearls

With a location close to Google, Facebook, and SAP Offices, the 112-room Residence Inn Palo Alto Mountain View is a convenient pick for business travelers. All suites offer fully equipped kitchens and extra space including cozy couches and work desks. Additional perks for business travelers include a free grocery shopping service and free continental breakfast. While there are no on-site restaurants, a nightly happy hour is held in the lounge/lobby area. Rooms are generic and chain-like, but there's an outdoor pool and a small fitness center with modern machines.
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.
