“Perfect for Buck Shaw Stadium Games”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

1km walk to the stadium.
Great value - $90 for one night in Sept '13.
Room and property were very clean, although undergoing a little renovation (which did not detract from stay).
Staff on check-in was very courteous and helpful.

Room Tip: Zero marks for BW for plastic-everything in the breakfast room (cutlery, cups, plates, etc.). Watch...

Stayed here while visiting family in the San Jose area. Very clean, very quiet. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room nicely appointed and great wi-fi reception. Breakfast room was never crowded and the standard continental fare was above average.

I recently moved out of state and searched for a clean, comfortable, safe, and affordable place to stay while visiting family in the Bay Area of California. I contacted my local favorite and much to my surprise, their rates had more than doubled in recent months. I contacted the Best Western reservation # and chose this one because of its proximity to the freeway and the operator told us that hotel rooms were in enclosed buildings and not directly exposed to parking lot or street. I appreciate that extra layer of security so made the reservation. The staff was friendly, the rooms were comfortable, and the location was good. They served breakfast and it was competitive with other hotel chains. They did not have the full spread but the waffle machine was a winner! My family and I would stay there again during a visit to the Bay Area.

For the price, this is an excellent place to stay. Very clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. We didn't stay for breakfast but did see what was available and it was very nicely set out for the guest.

Hotel was clean, nice, possibly recently renovated. Basically, it's what you'd expect from a Best Western. Breakfast buffet could have used a few more hot-dish items, but generally no complaints given the great price.

Good clean hotel. A little more than I usually pay, but a great deal for San Jose. A short cab ride from the airport (an airport shuttle is about the only suggestion for improvement). Room was great, good wireless service, decent breakfast selection.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

Stayed just one night as my husband and I were attending a dinner in San Jose. Initially, when I made the reservation by phone, I was put off by the young man who answered the phone. He talked so fast I couldn't understand if I had even gotten the right place. However, when we checked in, we were greeted by a competent desk person. We had booked a junior suite. It's quite small. I guess that having a couch and coffee table makes it a suite. Nonetheless, the room was clean and we asked for one that was away from the main road so it was quiet. The rate with a AAA card was reasonable for the area. We have stayed in other Best Western Plus locations and I wouldn't rate this location as a "Plus." There is a microwave and refrigerator. Though I only had a yogurt for breakfast, it appeared that there were quite a few options such as pancakes, eggs, sausage, cereal, juice, coffee, fruit (though not much by the time I got down to the breakfast area). If you are just planning to stay a couple of nights and don't need "frills," this place will suffice.

Room Tip: Ask for a second level room and away from Tully Road. There is an elevator so you don't have to...
