A Hotel Favorite

We have always stayed at The Plaza Suites in Santa Clara.    The Plaza Suites is about 3 miles from the San Jose Airport and it’s about 2 miles from Great America, our family’s first and favorite park.  Plaza Suites weekday rates are about $200 a night and up and on Friday nights the hotel discounts kick in and they go down to $109 a night.  Sometimes you can check and the hotel discounts go down by Thursday.   The best thing is they have a cook to order breakfast and in the evenings they have a happy hour in which you get 3 free drinks from the bar per room.  As much as we love that, we are never usually back from the park in time to enjoy it. 

So this motel does cost a little more than some of the others, but for the 4 of us to go out and get a really good, not just continental breakfast, it would cost at least $30.  So if the motel was under $70 you would be a little ahead, but I would hate to see that motel.

This motel also has a special package with the Roller Coaster park Great America.

Now, my husband is a motel snob, but not me.  I am willing to give a little in that area since we are never there, but since I have to please him we are always looking for the best deal in the best hotel and this place definitely fits the bill. Plus it is a Suite like it says, so you have a living room with a sleeper couch and a bedroom with 2 Queen beds.

This place is always clean and the customer service is great.  Check this place out on the web, it’s very nice.


Hiking Southern Utah and Northern Arizona in 5 Days

We just did a 5 day hiking trip to Southern Utah and Northern Arizona. We aren’t hard core hikers, so covering over 30 miles in just a few days, was a big deal to us. But we did see some beautiful country. For us, the easiest way to get there is to fly through Las […]
