There is no way for me to add onto my older review, so I am writing a new one. We again tried, wrongly, this hotel. It's worse than last year, which wasn't great. Additionally our car ended up getting very scratched. Bottom line is it's much better to spring an extra $100 and stay elsewhere, with a better place for... More

This was the most gross experience of a hotel stay in my life.. I don't even know where to start.. so we'll just leave it at that. Wait for this place to go up in flames if there is any more extension cords in the rooms trying to power the coffee maker.. and blowing the fuse in the building. We... More

We booked in advance and gave a credit card to hold our reservation. When we arrived at 7:00pm we were told that our room was canceled because they had tried to run our card through at 6pm that night and it was declined each time (impossible, and they could not prove they had even tried). So, after talking to the... More

Me & my husband reached this hotel around 6.30pm. The staff really rude & unfriendly. The room was dark with very old furniture, hard bed and a box tv (instead of flat screen shown on Hotels.com website). Besides this, we saw couple of weird people hanging around who didn't seem to be the guests staying there. When I mentioned this... More

We stayed here with our family. Nice staff, very polite. The rooms were ok, but could be a little more updated. Fridge worked ok also the microwave. Breakfast is not what European expect. Bread is more bakery, nice with a cup of coffee at 10 o'clock but not at 8:30! Also no tea-bags, we bought them ourselves... The rooms are... More

I flew into San Jose Airport late in the evening and was looking for a place to flop, planning to get up early the next morning to rent a car and be on my way. I saw on their listing that they did have a shuttle which was great because I didn't want to pay for a car that evening... More

We stayed here for their park and fly. That was fantastic. Our flight left before their shuttle so they sent a taxi free of charge for us. Our car was fine when we returned. The desk clerk was friendly and helpful. The room itself was in pretty bad shape, but we were only going to be sleeping for a few... More

I took a small group on a trip and stayed at the Caravelle Inn 1 night before and 1 night after our visit to Hawaii. It was convenient to the airport and included parking when you paid the higher rate. First of all, the hotel is old, the staff not helpful, the manager Tim uncooperative, the breakfast not maintained well,... More

I was reluctant to stay at this hotel because of the reviews I read. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the friendly service at the desk, a nice room (older but clean), and I felt very safe there. We left our car for 25 days and came back to find it in perfect shape and had not been tampered with... More
