This hotel was much more than I expected. It is very welcoming because of the staff and the lobby. The lobby is not a huge cavern of wasted space; it is very comfortable ans low key. There is a small store off the lobby that provided the basics you need, a sitting area leading into the bar that was very... More

Great rooms, incredible staff, wonderful location. Can't say enough. It was a wonderful stay. Regarding "Rather_Be_camping" comments, she left out the part that the small space is the toilet and bathtub/shower. There is a large area with 2 sinks, great lighting, hair dryer, magnified mirror that pulls out from wall. This way one person can be showing or using the... More

My boyfriend had stayed here before and said it was alright. It was just that, alright. We checked in with 4 of us in a suite. The king bed in the separate bedroom was nice. The living room area was kinda small, but worked for us. The bathroom was tiny. Like two half doors instead of a full size door... More

Wow! What a great spot! The front desk staff was just amazing. They should bottle Jumma and sell him to every hospitality organization on earth. He couldn't have been friendlier, more attentive or more helpful. The rooms are great - plenty of space to spread out, good beds, nice vanity area. The full breakfast that's included is very good, and... More

Stayed there only one night on a layover to Hawaii. The hotel was nice and quiet. Not to close to the airport but close enough to save time in getting back. The staff was super friendly. Especially Ivan who went out of his way to accommodate the large number of people in our group. The room was very clean. Slight... More

Stayed here for 10 nights on a business visit. Got a room on the 1st floor next to 101. I didn't find the room to be that noisy like some have mentioned. The room is really well laid out, nice living area, comfortable bed room and enough space to move around within the room. Breakfast was good, you can get... More

Room was large and nice but no shower! The handle on the tub faucet was broken off. I told them twice and they told me twice they would fix it but no maintenance person came after a whole day. The sink stopper also didn't work. They told me they would fix that, too. The only good part was Marilyn, our... More

Stayed here for a business trip centered in San Jose. Location is good and close to San Jose airport. Hotel is nothing special but is clean and the staff is relatively friendly. It is obvious that the hotel is older and has been remodeled recently. The breakfast was pretty good for a suite hotel with a cook to order eggs.... More

Room 128 - Plus side a quite room, although on the small side However plumbing requires renovation - one can get hot water for the hand basin but a total different story with the shower. If one is lucky, at best, you will get luke warm water.

Stayed at this hotel just this past week. This was my first time in the property. The rooms are nice, clean. BUT the road noise from 101 is horrendous!!! All night you can hear the constant roar of the cars on the highway.... So for the money you have to spend vs the quality of stay.... I will think twice... More
