Practical, yet homey

3.4 on November 17, 2014

For a week-long business trip, this was a perfect getaway. The innkeepers were very hospitable and accommodating to crazy work schedules. Breakfast was good (eggs, potatoes, fruit) and she even provided gluten-free cereal to meet my allergy needs. The room was picked up every day (as I would expect in a hotel) and everything was cleaned nicely. Overall the house was in good shape, but it looks like they've done much of the maintenance and renovations themselves (mainly the bathrooms). A few things need updating here and there (microwave/fridge in common area) but for the price in Silicon Valley, this is hands-down a great value and I would totally stay there again.

Innkeeper Response
Very happy to hear that we met this guest's needs satisfactorily, especially since they rarely stay at B & B's, so may have different expectations I try to learn something from every guest/review, and picked up that both fridge and microwave needed to be update. Done. Glad that the yesterday found us good value for the area and that they will return.

Super easy!

We had a great stay. We were in town for a football game, and this was a great price and cute place. All rooms have private baths, TVs and ours was cutely decorated. We would definitely stay there again.

Excellent Stay in Santa Clara

We absolutely loved our stay at the Madison Street Inn! Needed somewhere close to Sunnyvale while visiting my brother, and could not be happier with the service and quality of this B&B. The breakfast was outstanding as well!

Very comfortable, clean, and quiet at a great price.

Just a few blocks from "downtown" Santa Clara and Santa Clara University, this well-maintained restored old home is quite comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our three-day stay. Quiet Madison Room (nearest front door), nice company, and tasty food. Huge beautiful pool; close, safe parking.

great stay
