    Smallish room with minimalist but colorful decorating. Pros: Immaculately clean, nice bedding and towels, effective air conditioning, numerous power and USB outlets available.

    It works but be aware is a quirkily re-done old motel. Re-done IKEA style -it's ok but cheap. Small, tiny bathroom ala 1960s but very clean. Good wifi, free parking, near airport and a new Whole Foods. Staff was great. Fitness room is terrible.More

    There is a main entrance from the Lobby and for quick access there are some doors at the perimeter, but they only open with an active room key.

    Hello Mr. Pravin, The closest laundry would be Town and Country Cleaner, that is 6 minutes by car, unfortunately there aren't walking distance laundries; the address for this laundry is: 3933 Rivermark Plaza, Santa Clara.
