Bottom Line

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.

Map of Wild Palms Hotel, a Joie de Vivre Hotel

The Wild Palms Hotel is located in an area of the Silicon Valley called Sunnyvale. This largely commercial and residential area is best known as the home of Yahoo, and the town doesn't have much to offer in the form of entertainment and culture. Most people visiting the area are in town for business, but there are a few local attractions including two golf courses, restaurants along Murphy Avenue, and 18 well-kept parks.

The hotel is located in the eastern region of Sunnyvale, just a short drive from Santa Clara.
