The staff was remarkably kind to help me out, very flexible, friendy and truly supportive. Reliable, trustful room service. Nice rooms, clean and well maintained at absolutely reasonable price. Perfect location for businesstrips as a lot of restaurants & shopping opportunities are right around. Despite the central location the rooms are absolutely quiet. Clean pool as well for a refreshment or some exercises. I enjoyed my stay a lot and will for sure come back.

You can only pay with card, no digital payments (Apple Pay, and so on) and not even cash. Breakfast is a joke. So much disposables and such bad quality of food. Pool is super small compared with the pictures. You don't feel 100% safe in the area, one of the mornings another guest was peeing on the parking lot...

Sorry you seem to not enjoyed your stay. We do accept all corms of credit card as well as US Dollars. Unfortunately Apple Pay and other forms of wallet have not received the PCI compliance approval to the extent that most hoteliers are comfortable with the exchange. Covid-19 has changed the dynamic of food service at limited service hotels, it seems for good. We have returned to a pre-covid breakfast with the only exception of scrambled eggs, bacon and hash browns. However in its place we have added: hard-boiled eggs, egg/cheese and sausage croissant, breakfast burrito as well as a Hot Pocket breakfast sandwich. I can't speak to your safety comment as I can only refer you to the fact that we have no issues of crimes that every other hotel in Santa Clara has. We offer one of the only pools in a hotel in Santa Clara and that amenity has been lauded time and time again. If I can be of assistance in a future reservation, I'm happy to do so. I wish you safe travels.

Overall terrible experience. Will not be coming back! Staff was not helpful at all. Chose this hotel for the pool which was not heated and staff did not seem to care about any of the issues we experienced

I'm sorry that you felt the pool water to be too cold, it is set at 72* and if adjusted, would take about 24-hours to increase 4*. I am unaware of other issues that you experienced but would be happy to discuss, if you care to. I hope your next visit to the area is more to your liking.

Unfriendly check in that missed requests and left us without a needed ADA compliant bathroom. TIght parking lot. Horrible breakfast. Cleaning could be better and things need fixes around the room, gaps in the bedroom door let some bugs walk in.

I stayed at BW (i think on el camino way?) during the FanimeCon because the rates weren’t so bad compare to other hotels near the convention center. Yes, it is about a 15-20 minute drive from the convention, but i like how there was a complimentary breakfast for the guests A couple of the staff was extra friendly going out of their way to have conversations with you.
