If you're planning to stay here be aware that it's more of a motel-style with rooms on an exterior walkway facing the parking lot. Also the A/C is old fashioned style window units. These were noisy at night and could not set an exact temperature. As a result I woke up hot, then turned down but then my daughter near... More

Service is poor. Room is mediocre . Reluctantly provide extra pillows & blankets. Noisy with parties or people fighting. Lights in the room were too bright. Would not recommend this place. People need to be RE TRAINED in customer service.

I was really impressed with this place. It seemed a bit out of the way, but the hotel itself, rooms, and staff were superb. Our room was immaculate, and well-stocked with coffee, tea, complimentary water bottles, toiletries, and towels. The included breakfast was an excellent value with lots of variety: eggs, turkey sausage, bacon, oatmeal, bananas, boiled eggs, pancakes, coffee,... More

After a long day of travelling my husband and I arrived at the hotel early and loved that there was lots of FREE parking!

My flight landed in San Jose after 7P and I arrived at the HI Express around 7:30P to discover the hotel only had outward faced rooms.
