This is the closed hotel to the main gate of NASA Ames. It is about $100 per night less expensive than major brand name properties nearby. Those always sell out first while space is generally available here. The rooms are spacious, clean and include free wifi. The included breakfast is basic but is not well staffed and items often run... More

Room clean and large - breakfast not too bad for the US. Walking distance to Shoreline if no Taxi's are about (about 15 minutes).

Staff seemed lazy, while at the same time trying to act helpful. Asked to be moved to another room. Was told; 2 rooms available on second floor, but, next to the freeway. So, I thought... " "bar noise until 2am or freeway noise all night". Bar went way past 2:00am. Blow dryer blew cold air. Had to call housekeeping to... More

We stayed for a total of four nights at the Quality Inn in Mountain View, which we chose for its proximity to the Shoreline Ampitheatre. The first two nights were really decent - we had a small suite, which was clean, roomy, and comfortable. A couple of minor housekeeping problems - missing lightbulb and a sink drain stopper which was... More

We weren't impressed at first when we walked in to this hotel, but after we settled in and had a good night's sleep, we were quite happy. The location is convenient to NASA, the San Jose airport (12 miles away), and Google's headquarters, and downtown Mountain View, where there are many restaurants and a light rail station to downtown San...

This place had better rates for it's reviewed level, but is just a notch up from other economy motels. Even the room keys still came in "Super 8" cases, so did it recently change names? The people at the front desk were nice enough but certainly did not seem to want to do anything to go out of the way... More

I stayed for business and have to say I was glad. Rooms were large, very clean, very convenient. The hotel is located at on mile from the downtown which is a charming place. People at the front desk were nice and helpful. Breakfast was all right (I love waffles). overall good surprise. Parking is free and easy

We are regular concert goers and when in Mountain View --Shoreline we ALWAYS stay at Quality Inn. Great service and good breakfast although the eating area is really small so we take our b'fast back to our room. We usually take a cab to Shoreline to avoid the traffic congestion and parking worries. As was mentioned in another review it... More

The hotel is very convenient to Ames and priced reasonably for the area. The breakfast selection is excellent compared to comparable hotels. Rooms are comfortable and quiet. Free wifi was fast and great signals. Biggest negative is the claim that there is a fitness center: one basic treadmill and elliptic in a small room with no working TV. I stayed... More
