Not the newest property, and some areas could use an upgrade, but clean and nice with friendly, helpful staff. Easy to find. Close to many local attractions. Great, varied selection for included breakfast. Will stay again.

Stayed for one night on business. Lobby and breakfast area seemed clean and front desk helpful, but halls have musty smell and room had awful smell of musty or something. Tried opening window (only opens about 2 inches) and leaving fan on all night, but didn't help. Based on the smell in the hall, figured most rooms are like this... More

In town for a wedding with our granddaughter, this property worked well. Hotels in this area are pricey; this one was a little less with free parking and breakfast. We had a large double queen room with adjacent sitting area. The extra space was great. The pool area was nice. No problem with noise. The breakfast room is small and... More

Very friendly staff, good complementary breakfast and WiFi service. Good location, is close to everything. The room had a king size bed very comfortable, but the rooms require a renovation soon. Fitness center needs new machines and is very small.

The setup for this hotel is a bit weird. You exit out of the building, then enter back in to the hallways which seemed to not be air conditioned and had sky lights so it was decently warm. Inside the room however once you get the A/C going it cools down really quick. The room was quieter than expected and... More

I had an extended stay for about a month at Holiday Inn Express at Santa Clara. I have to say that I enjoyed my stay and never felt bored. Got full continental breakfast, quite and spacious room,HBO, all day quality coffee, ample parking and right in the intersection of El Camino and San Tomas. Can't complain :-)
