Had a couple of nights here in September, Saturday & Sunday, not that you would have known the place was very quiet. It's around 30 minutes from the airport but close to a Client so the main reason for choosing it. Rooms are very nice, clean and well sized, internet is free and quick, reliable - always a bonus.

I stayed here back in late April before leaving the country. Tried something different with more options for food and things to do in walking distance. All the staff I came in contact were VERY nice and HOSPITABLE. The casino was a disappointment ( small not busy ), pool area needed work done all around it ( looked worn out... More

Stayed one night and would have loved to stay longer. Lovely property, clean, airy and fresh. Good food with a cafe, restaurant and bar food options. Took a little while to get my bearings as it has several annexes which can confuse. Lots of people about but never felt crowded due to open space design. Only fault is a common... More

Good location, value, and great staff if you have business in San Jose. The biggest issue is driving around San Jose if you have your own car. Avoid rush hour, be patient, and keep both hands on the wheel if you must drive in the city. Bed was a little hard, but other than that, nice stay at this property.

Did not understand how it's such highly rated hotel on TripAdvisor. The hotel is quite outdated. We stayed for a night at this location while passing through San Jose. The room had stall air smell and AC did not work quite well (I don't think it worked at all). The rooms are muggy and lacks luster. Even the TV hardly... More
