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

We chose this hotel based on other people's reviews. It is well located in the Southern part of San Jose, next to 101 and Reid-Hillview airport. Of course there is 24 h noise from the freeway, but it was bearable. The staff is very friendly, the rooms are clean, andd there was no noise from the other guests over the... More

I landed at SJC airport around 10pm and hadn't booked any accommodation. I was attending a conference so I needed something reasonably close to things but it didn't have to be fancy. Fontaine Inn was 20 minutes cab ride from the airport, 10 minutes cab ride the city, and the price was very reasonable. The room was clean and had... More

It's a motel. Quiet, hot shower, and clean. Mostly people looking to sleep for a night. Stopped after a late night flight before starting our journey the next day. Breakfast in the AM was fine. It served the purpose and is stay there again. The front desk did hook us up with tooth paste.

We were on a road trip and didn't want to spend a lot of money on hotels. Rather, we wanted to spend our money on restaurants and museums. The location of the hotel and its price allowed us to visit our planned places and still enjoy a clean place and a good night's rest.

First of all, For more than 30 years I have lived and worked as a high school teacher in San Jose, CA. I know the city and its neighborhood quite well. So, I would be the first one to tell you that I would not look forward to staying in a hotel situated on the East Side of San Jose,... More
