If Not the Best BEST, Plenty Good Enough!

Can’t say if this is the best BEST WESTERN of all. But it’s plenty good enough: clean, comfortable, conveniently located and with nice touches of character, especially those ubiquitous black and white photos of Las Gatos gatos in the ample guest rooms, along with historic local scenes and colorful artwork -- plus good hanging and drawer storage.
Just around the corner from family we were visiting, the Inn is also within easy walking distance of the shops and restaurants in “downtown” Los Gatos and the non-profit “Billy Jones Wildcat Railroad,” carousel and snack shack for kiddies in nearby Oak Meadow at Vasona Lake Park.
On our spring visit last year, an included breakfast buffet was crowded into the lobby area. But this year it comes via coupons to the new, attached Grill 57 restaurant, also serving well-prepared lunches, dinners, wine and cocktails to guests and neighborhood regulars -- and as take-out (not the drinks).
In spring weather, we found the outdoor (but pleasantly heated) pool little used and therefore both inviting and invigorating (even if only nine to ten, strokes end to end). Towels are available in the enclosed pool area, as are machines for snacks and drinks.
Unfortunately, it’s to that same pool area you must walk to get ice for your room—no problem on a warm afternoon or evening, but best avoided on cold, dark and stormy nights. Not a hard problem to solve, however, and perhaps we’ll find the ice machine moved to the main building when we return next year. less
