Having not been to San Jose in over 20 years, I was a bit nervous about traveling alone and staying in town. This was all dismissed once I spoke with Liz over the telephone. She arranged my transportation from the airport, which I highly recommend as the Taxi drivers outside customs are a bit aggressive. Upon arrival at Colours I... More

This is my second stay now at Colours Resort and I feel it is my home away from home. The staff there is really what makes the place so enjoyable. They all work very hard to make sure your stay is fantastic, going above and beyond what even a 4-5 star hotel would do with much more personalized service. The... More

I stayed at Colours as part of a "dental tourism" visit in Jan. 2014. As someone traveling alone and without a rental car, I needed a place with a caring and understanding staff, which is perhaps one of the best features that Colours has to offer. They made sure that I got to the oral surgeon's office via taxi, or... More

On my recent visit to San Jose I stayed at the Colours Oasis Resort. The location is outside the city but in a good neighborhood and it's easy to get around. My check in was easy however I did change rooms. I found the budget room to be too small for my taste. I was happy to upgrade to the... More

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in total (2 nights when I arrived, and 1 night before I left). Friendly and super helpful staff - I had traveled as a solo female in my 30's and the staff were so warm and sweet, especially Kevin, I liked chatting with him. Also, you can see that there are regulars... More

This is our home away in San Jose. The staff is like family. The property offers a completely different experience where people meet each other to chat and socialize around the pool or the bar. With a wide range of room choices, there is one that will fit almost any need or budget. While this is predominately a gay hotel,... More

I have had the opportunity to visit San Jose four times since 2008, the last, 5-12 March 2014. For me, COLOURS is like a home away from home. The facility is in a quiet, safe residential neighborhood away from the noise and crime of downtown San Jose, but is serviced by buses and taxies. Food is available both at the... More
