This place was NOTHING that we had expected. The rooms need a serious makeover. The furniture was all banged up. The internet, shall I say, SUCKED!!! I understand its an old place but you got to take care of it!!! We had a room with 2 beds meaning usually a 'double' room. First thing had a problem with the TV... More

Chose this hotel for a Park, Sleep and Fly package. Place is very old and rooms need a re-vamp, although their web site says "All of Caravelle's rooms including mini-suites have been upgraded and furnished with contemporary Italian decor and theme." Either that was written 10 years ago, or the room I stayed in missed the upgrade. Carpet was threadbare.... More

Don't stay here unless you are absolutely desperate for a roof over your head for the night. Grubby rooms, I have loads of bites from goodness knows what. Joke of a 'breakfast'. Staff who are polite but don't actually care. All in all - dreadful.

We had clean spacious room on bottom floor for 90$. It is 5-10 minutes driving from airport. Accross the street are few Ok Asian food restaurants. The two younger receptionists were really kind, while older guy should change the job. Breakfast has to be improved also. Would stay again 1 night before flight.

The staff were horrible. Worst customer service ever. They charged an additional deposit after we had already paid for the room in advance. The booking said we could request a roll away bed and they wouldn't let us have one. My husband ended up having to buy a cot and bring it in. He kept requesting and extra pillow and... More

We got scammed and charged $310 by this place. We returNed the key to an employee and they claim it was lost and the room had a smoker. Not true. The room was run down and felt dirty. The cold water did not work in the sink. The cable tv did not work. Consider anyplace but here. We are in... More

When we checked in we had to sign an agreement to not have parties, sublet, smoke, and well anything else that normal healthy people would know is frown upon at a hotel. The comforter for the bed was basically a sheet because it had been washed so many times the padding was dissolving inside. I called and asked for extra... More

I should have read the Trip Advisor reviews before booking at this hotel. Also, it is rated as number 64 out of 70 hotels in San Jose. With such a low rating, I should have known that it probably would be dirty and poorly maintained. There are similarly priced inexpensive hotels in the area, but few are as run down... More

This was a very convenient location to stay before an early morning flight out next morning. Hotel was quiet and peaceful. Rooms a bit smaller but did have two full beds which met our needs. We were 5 minutes away from San Jose airport. It was a bit pricey at 100.00 for the night. But worth it since I live... More
