This condo complex is next to the train tracks and so they do wize by and blow their horns. This might be a problem for some, others not.

I had a great time! Everything was perfect. I had to get a small fan to use, but it's usually not hot in MV.
I stayed here for a little over a week during my internship. Both the apartment and room were nice and clean. One side of the home faces the tracks so you will hear the train go by but the station itself is only a block away which was super convenient for me. I also liked that it was only one street over from Castro which meant that there were a ton of restaurants nearby.
Overall it was a very pleasant experience and I would definitely stay here again.
I had a wonderful stay at the Room, Truly Downtown Mountain View. The room was exactly as advertised. It was very cozy and comfortable. The kitchen space was convenient. The location of the place was another big plus, being very accessible to caltrain and vta.
And most importantly, Jamie was an amazing host. He went out of his way to make my stay comfortable. He took care of my requests with amazing cordiality. He had even offered me his big LCD monitor while he was not using it.
I would definitely recommend you to stay here and enjoy a few days of Jamie's warm hospitality.
I had a great experience at Jamie's place in Mountain View. I ended up staying the entire week with no issues whatsoever. The roommates were all very nice and fun to be around, the place was clean, and the location is 1 block of of Castro St. in Downtown Mountain View. Would definitely stay here again!
