This hotel isn't anything fancy but it does have a clean bed and is a good price in San Jose. I would stay here again. No elevators to the second floor and I would recommend trying to get away from the road (noisy) if possible. Other that that it's your standard hotel.

The price here is one of the cheaper places to stay in Silicon Valley. Thus, I was a little worried but was thankful to find an attentive front desk worker, a very spacious and clean room (with plenty of furniture, as in a table, chairs, dresser, larger chair, microwave, fridge, another cabinet), and a basic continental breakfast in the morning...

Been trying to give Choice hotel chain a try as they can be more economical that other national chains. Haven't had much luck with Comfort so thought I would stay at the so called more upscale of the Choice brand. The hotel room is large. The décor is like stepping back into the 70's or 80's. Pale/Dark blue tile and... More

This was definitely a good hotel but definitely make sure it's where you want to stay. It is not in the most convenient location. Overall there were no issues when we stayed here with our son, they had a crib for us to use.

Had to really search to find a plug for my electrical devices. Only found 1 and had to unplug a light to use it. Room was fine, could use some updating. Overall for the money and the one night stay, I'd come back.

The room we stayed in was clean and the bed comfortable though the furnitures were a bit worn and 80's style. There are two buildings and the one we stayed in had doors on the outside. The neighborhood is not that attractive but we did feel concerned. The one thing that bothered me was breakfast. It was very basic continental... More

I needed two rooms for a quick business trip to San Jose. Compared to other hotels in the area, the Clarion Inn Silicon Valley is an excellent value. The hotel is small and the rooms are average but, in terms of the price per night compared to hotels in the area, this place is an outstanding value. The staff was... More

Room was clean- enough. Breakfast was standard, but definitely did the trick. Waffles, yogurt, fruit, bagels, etc. The pool was unheated and freezing even though it was 92 degrees outside. When my kids wanted to dip their toes in, we had a hard time getting over the overwhelming smell of gas in the pool area. Not sure what that was... More

This Clarion is very convenient to the San Jose airport and the nightly rate is competitive for the expensive Silicon Valley region. We selected this property for our stay based on these factors and the generally positive reviews we read. The king room we received at check-in met our basic needs for a place to rest and shower, but had... More

This hotel looks like it has been remodeled in the past several years. The lobby is beautiful, staff is polite but not really friendly, maids are sweet and rooms are very clean. Beds are comfortable, wifi worked fine, rooms are spacious, refrigerator and coffeepot in room. On the downside: HUGE SAFETY ISSUES - the smoke alarm was disabled (plastic bag... More
