Worst hotel (except in Tiajuana) I've ever stand in. Room was not clean - the electrical outlets looked hazardous. Bathroom was tacky - Rudest front desk I've ever encountered. The worst part was the promised shuttle was "unavailable" as we tried to leave for the airport. We had told the desk person (same guy) the night before that we would... More

I normally try to be positive with reviews but this one there really wasn't anything positive. For starters there was a piece of tape on the ceiling in the bathroom that started to leak. I told the guy at the front desk and he said he would fix it. After coming back nothing appeared to be done so who knows... More

Caravelle Inn exceeded my expectations. No frills, bells or whistles, however comfortable accommodations for our pre-flight stay. Friendly and courteous staff! Everything promised was delivered with no hassle. Small continental breakfast was perfect in the morning.

DO NOT STAY HERE. Room was dirty and smell of old cigarettes. Noisy, as the hotel is located on the busy North 1st street. Unhelpful staff. No complementary shuttle to/from airport. I tried to save money but "getting what you paid for" was an overstatement.

I stayed one night at the Caravelle Inn and would say that the best quality of the hotel is that it is located close to the airport and light rail. It's really an economy hotel that's well worn. The night I was there the TV was difficult to operate. You had to operate the cable box and TV. There was... More

We were looking for a hotel that was close to the airport. There are a few that are slightly closer than this one, mostly on the same street. What we found, however, was that this hotel is not walkable to the airport. We did walk it but had to run across a highway in order to get there. The hotel... More

It was good that actually we could use the microwave and refrigerator in our room to have our food. We had very good nights, and in the morning wonderful bread & coffee, the car was safe, and I actually spend a really good time. Sure I'll return. I really liked the Japanese restaurants around the area and of course VTA... More

Arrived and the room was ready, it has a microwave and coffee pot. The morning complimentary breakfast was bagels and cereal, interesting you can not take the food or coffee to your room. If your looking for a hotel that offers the park and fly it is perfect for that. They are only ten minutes away from the San Jose... More

The good- staff was very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was ok, dry cereal ,juice, toast, coffee. Surprisingly bed was comfortable. The bad- everything else, room smelled probably because the leak in upstairs tub. Mildew or mold growing there. Peeling wallpaper, furniture was very beat up. Desperate need of repairs. Looks like they may have long term residents that are loud.
