Stayed here for 2 nights on business. Hotel was very nice and clean. Breakfast was decent standard HIE items. Staff was friendly as well. Fairly close to the airport. Parking was good as hotel was not full. Get a room away from El Camino to avoid some traffic noise.

Our room had hair dryer, iron board, iron, coffee maker (with kcups, sugar, coffee mate, tea), small fridge (no mini bar), flat screen TV. The front desk person was very pleasant and friendly.

This property has nice rooms, comfortable beds and is clean. The staff are very friendly and they've added some nice touches (like Halloween candy and fresh fruit) at the front desk to make it feel welcoming and comfortable. The breakfast attendant was both friendly and efficient. The in room coffee was good (stronger than what was downstairs). Breakfast choices were...

What a lovely hotel. Staff are delightful, room was modern, very roomy, fresh and clean. Unfortunately no pool, but could use the Best Western across the road if needed. Breakfast was excellent, guest laundry (FREE !) with immaculate Bosch machines. Work table rolled away under another, thereby leaving more "dumping" room. Great idea.

You know what you are getting with HI Express. This one is fairly modern, rooms a reasonable size and plenty of parking. Breakfast offerings very good and there are lots of local restaurants nearby. Can be expensive especially if there is a game on at nearby Levi Stadium.

We really liked our stay here from the friendly receptionist, the clean and spacious room, the helpful breakfast lady, the free fruit/cookie at check in, and the close location to a shopping center. Breakfast was typical - yogurts, breads, cinnamon rolls, cereal, pancake maker, eggs, sausage, gravy, etc.

I stayed at this location for five nights while exploring all around the bay. The room was clean but just a little worn, but nothing to complain about. Breakfast was adequate other than strange tasting orange juice (hooray for nearby stores and a mini fridge).
