My boss and I missed our international flight out of San Jose International Airport. The only other flight option to Guadalajara out of the Bay Area would have been to take a red eye out of Oakland. This was not an option so we decided to stay locally to catch the next flight the following day. We found the Fontaine... More

Fontaine Inn is a hidden gem hiding behind ChuckECheese and next to 101 highway. I booked this place for my friends visiting from LA while shopping around for a place which is economical and close to my home, I live near downtown. My friends kids were so happy to have a place next to ChuckECheese and it made their trip... More

This is my 5th stay at the Fontaine Inn. The staff is always friendly and helpful. I love the convenience of their complimentary breakfast which offers healthy choices. They have recently renovated rooms and the property is safe and well maintained. Since I'm in town on business often, being centrally located to all of my clients within the Silicon Valley... More

I visited the bay area for interviews and had to stay for a week. I was looking for something reasonably priced near the airport, city and the freeway. This hotel had free Wi-Fi and was quite for me to prepare for the interview. They also provide free morning breakfast before my interview. I was able to beat the rush hour... More

I could see a lot of trucks in the parking garage... Typical truck driver's stop over.. the rates were also very high.. I would definitely not recommend this hotel for a stay... The rooms were not great either... The hotel staff were friendly though...

I booked this hotel via fedrooms.com, or at least I thought I did. The website had it listed as a Days Inn (which it hasn't been for years. Naturally, the night receptionist had no way to confirm the reservation, but she found me a room anyway at a very reasonable rate. They're still in the process of upgrading the rooms,... More

All the staff were friendly and accommodating! My room was clean, amenities were great. Location is right off the freeway. Lots of nearby places to eat. I will definitely be back and highly recommend you stay here.

I didn't have a reservation, but needed a room for the night, and the lady at the front desk was very helpful, and professional. I think her name was Brandy. She made the check-in process very easy, and I had a nice quiet room on the bottom floor. I think that the room had been recently renovated. The room was... More

Excrement Cavcity is Generous I think people have been paid to post good reviews of this place. It is a H-O-L-E. Our room had not seen the business end of a vacuum.., well, ever. Carpet? Stained and just filthy. Dust and grime in corners and on the walls. The sheets were slick with the DNA of others. I am grateful... More
