“Nice Hotel - Safe, Good Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

This is not your average Sleep Inn. This was one of the nicest Sleep Inn's I have ever stayed. They have a casino on site, as well as a nice restaurant with piano music. Good luck in the casino. Not very much winning going on in there. No pool. It is downtown San Jose, so as is everything else downtown, there are large gates and fences around the entire property with security. It does make you feel secure as downtown can be a little crazy at night.

Staff was all VERY helpful and nice. Their on site sports bar was closed our entire stay, but you could order wine over from the restaurant. The complimentary breakfast buffet was pretty good each morning.

We ate in the restaurant twice. It was very good. Not cheap, but not out of line for a nicer restaurant.

We tried our hand in the casino. Yeah, got wiped out very quickly on anything we played.

We used their concierge for a tour and car rental. The rental was a little on the high end price wise, but at least the car was delivered and all was hassle free. The tour was reasonable as it was a private tour of waterfalls, just for the two of us.

Rooms were spacious and very clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: No real good views from any of the rooms. If you get a taxi, make sure the driver knows some English...

Good for the first night when you arrive. Location is very good. Standard 3 star hotel with clean but very standard rooms. Nothing special or beautiful, but ok. Can be noisy. Wifi only works in lobby, but only after some time. Feels safe. Receptionists and person who oversees breakfast is very attentive and nice!

We stayed at the Sleep Inn hotel on arrival and departure from San Jose and had a quite bad experience. Rooms are standard and clean, but on the second day we did not have running water at all and could not even take a shower before leaving for a long trip. When we asked the reception for some sort of compensation they just said "sorry, the manager is not here there is nothing we can do". We are not talking of lack of hot water, but complete shortage of water. The breakfast is very poor, luckily the waiter was very nice and kind. We asked reception a recommendation of restaurant for dinner and he suggested us to eat at the hotel since according to him there was not much else walking distance and my friend and I were quite tired. I strongly recommend not to eat there, the food was bad and the ambience even worse (in fact the restaurant is in a casino and due to the type of guests and area my friend and I - two girls - even felt uncomfortable sitting there ). I am not sure about alternatives options for San Jose but I would definitely explore them
