This motel is located near the Santa Clara County Fairgrounds and an industrial area. There is a shopping center and restaurants located about a mile from this hotel. The exterior of the hotel is a little dated but very well kept. The rooms and common areas are clean and modern.The motel room entrances are from the outside. We stayed on... More

The thing about a Holiday Inn Express is that you pretty much know what you're getting before you see it. This hotel is fine. The staff was exceptionally pleasant. The rooms were comfortable and very clean. No luxury soaps or plush towels, but a reasonable price. The breakfast was actually on the higher end of standard free breakfast buffets. The... More

We ended up here after having stayed at the Extended Stay America down the way which was filthy. From the outside some may pass this up because it may not look promising but don't. The rooms are clean and bright. The breakfast was awesome. I would definitely stay here again. The price wasn't too bad either. Having to come here... More

Breakfast selection could improve, very typical for a Holiday Inn Express. Rooms were clean. Not bad if you are looking to keep to a budget. The property is a motel style. Staff is nice and welcoming. Not the best neighborhood, not much to do.

Basically it's an old motel with all rooms accessible from parking lot. Pool and jacuzzi are very small but clean. Breakfast area is small but well stocked. That said, it has been thoroughly refurbished and everything looks very well kept up. The surrounding neighborhood is sketchy so if you just want an overnight place to crash then this is it....
