“I found my new business hotel in Fremont”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2011

I very much enjoyed my stay at the Residence Inn Fremont Silicon Valley. The factor that will keep me coming back is the hotel staff, particularly Artis McCoy. Artis and his team were the most accommodating staff that I have come across in a long time. If you go there, ask for Artis. You won't be disappointed. There's not a full-service restaurant. But there is free breakfast and a happy hour/dinner each night for the guests. The free food at night while I was there included grilled chicken sandwiches and pulled pork.

Room Tip: I'm partial to the penthouse rooms with a loft. It's a nice separation of sleep space from l...

I like these hotels because of the spacious rooms, and there's usually a swimming pool. This one had a spacious room, but the bathroom non-slip mat was moldy, kind of off-putting. The swimming pool was heated, which was nice in the chilly evening. And the hot tub was great to sink into.

The internet connection was very slow. I thought it may be our particular suite's location, but other reviews complain about the speed as well. Breakfast was ok: soft waffles (thanks to all the oil spray), plasticky scrambled eggs, salty biscuits - but all edible.

I'd stay here again if everywhere else was too expensive.

Stayed here for a week and loved it. Had the 2-floor condo-style with 2 bathrooms and fireplace and fireplace. Great room, clean. Great breakfast every day and a free pizza night and other goodies. Hot tub was not working :(

Smokers in the parking lot but at least they stayed in the back rows smoking.

Very nice accommodations.

Pros
Spacious room

Cons
1. Internet is very slow. Especially if you have plans to work from Hotel..its not good. Connection drops frequently. 0.3MBPS is the speed you get for free. If you pay about $9, you get 1.5mbps. Huh.. are we in Silicon valley or a remote village?

2.They have shuttle service near by place on business days for every hour from 9. We need to book in advance..blah..blah. lot of rules around to this. I have booked this service for 10 days, and it did not start on time for 5 days.

3. Complementary breakfast & social hours ( mini dinner) available in this hotel. You should plan for this as all the items wont be available most of the times. Staff delays a lot to refill.

4. Room Service- They do not apply vacuum cleaner daily. If you allergic not preferable.

5. Bathroom - Hot water is an issue. If your bath extends beyond 5 mins, the water starts getting cold. The lavatory is small for big personality.

6. this does not have the lift. if you are carrying luggage.. nightmare

7. Phones- It has two phones in the studio with single line. No basic facilities like speaker phone, conf, mute ..etc

8.TV - Age old 29" tv's

9. Working table - Not at all convenient

Lots of highway noise and malfunctioning toilet that didn't get fixed after I reported it. Nice sized room which is what you would expect from this chain.

I have stayed at this hotel 3-4 times over the last 7 years and their service is on the decline. That and the fact that the hotel is right by the freeway on ramp and the freeway make me recommend hotels in a different location.

The staff is friendly and the hotel is clean while serving a good breakfast and happy hour but the freeway noise and quality of housekeeping make me recommend other hotels.

My family of 4 stayed in a studio for 2 nights while visiting friends nearby. It was very cramped but all they had were studios. We have stayed in a few Residence Inns and they are always good. For a family you can't beat having a kitchen and a pool and usually a big room. the staff at the Fremont Residence Inn were extra nice, I had made a silly comment on my internet booking about liking green, so there was a green themed gift waiting for us when we checked in.
