The Los Gatos Lodge has been around for ages and has worn well. The hotel is very reasonable in an area where hotel prices have become outrageous. They have a pool, spa, bocce ball court and lounge for guests needs. They have a bit of an abbreviated menu, but everything is simple and satisfying. It is also a nice spot for meetings, banquets and weddings. I love to stop by for the great happy hour in the lounge M-F. They put out tons of food and have reduced drink prices. I think the hours for that are 4-7.
This hotel is awesome. It is right off the freeway, but is still quaint and charming. The bar had some delicious beverages and the hotel serves scrumptious food. However, my room was a little dingy and I think it could use a little renovation. It also smelt a little like smoke. The furnishings weren?t that impressive either.
The Los Gatos lodge is located at the base of the Santa Cruz mountains. Easy access to both Hwy 17 and Hwy 9. The Lodge has been around a long time and recently was updated and remodeled. I've been to the Lodge for an event and for a cocktail. Nice staff, good cocktails and friendly atmosphere. Comfortable place.
