The room we stayed in was clean and the bed comfortable though the furnitures were a bit worn and 80's style. There are two buildings and the one we stayed in had doors on the outside. The neighborhood is not that attractive but we did feel concerned. The one thing that bothered me was breakfast. It was very basic continental... More

I needed two rooms for a quick business trip to San Jose. Compared to other hotels in the area, the Clarion Inn Silicon Valley is an excellent value. The hotel is small and the rooms are average but, in terms of the price per night compared to hotels in the area, this place is an outstanding value. The staff was... More

Room was clean- enough. Breakfast was standard, but definitely did the trick. Waffles, yogurt, fruit, bagels, etc. The pool was unheated and freezing even though it was 92 degrees outside. When my kids wanted to dip their toes in, we had a hard time getting over the overwhelming smell of gas in the pool area. Not sure what that was... More

This Clarion is very convenient to the San Jose airport and the nightly rate is competitive for the expensive Silicon Valley region. We selected this property for our stay based on these factors and the generally positive reviews we read. The king room we received at check-in met our basic needs for a place to rest and shower, but had... More

This hotel looks like it has been remodeled in the past several years. The lobby is beautiful, staff is polite but not really friendly, maids are sweet and rooms are very clean. Beds are comfortable, wifi worked fine, rooms are spacious, refrigerator and coffeepot in room. On the downside: HUGE SAFETY ISSUES - the smoke alarm was disabled (plastic bag... More

the room was nice and had air conditioning. The rooms above the reception desk is exposed to the sound of trains which is across the road. Area seems nice enough though and the receptionist was very helpful

At first glance, the hotel is attractive and well kept. It’s the details where they lose points. The hallways are not secure. There is no keyed entry. Exit doors do not latch. The door to my room would not open fully. The furniture is 80’s style, but mostly well maintained. The bed was comfortable. Common areas are well-worn and needs... More

I stayed overnight for a presentation (flew in for the presentation, stayed the night, and flew out next morning). It's a decent place to stay with reasonable rates that is relatively close to the airport. The third floor, where I stayed, was really warm because heat rises and gets trapped in the hallway and rooms. If that's an issue for... More

Hotel was fine, has fridge and microwave in room, nice-ish furniture, decent looking grounds. In other words, what I would expect of a suburban hotel. Even covered parking area in the building I was staying in. I checked in on Sunday evening, no issue with area (although it was dark), no noise so far.

Stayed in the main bldg, closet to the train across the road, room was noisy especially in the morning when showers were taken. Free basic breakfast but excellent diner next door, outdoor Jacuzzi required nightly resets by management (which took requests well). (I suspect we were close to the shut-off time and the timer had not changed from DST). If... More
