Our family stayed at the Residence Inn at South San Jose/Morgan Hill for one evening, as a stopover for the long drive back from Norcal to LA, in late March 2013, and found it a fair value.
Our family has stayed at several Residence Inns in the past, as well as other competing brands, and always find the apartment-like accommodations cozy and comfortable. This is a perfect type of lodging for multi-night travelers who want the creature comforts of home, like the fully equipped kitchen. Travelers can really save on meals if they are willing to bring and cook their own meals, or grab some prepared meals, at Trader Joes down the street. I can vouch that this feature is a money-saver. The hotel, too, is centrally located amongst many fast-food restaurants, if you want that as an alternative.
Having said that, the Residence Inn's look, in my opinion, needs to be freshened up to compete with other chains, including Marriott's own stable of brands. I personally loved the design of the new generation of Fairfield Inn's that we've stayed at on a recent trip, for example. Also, a note for light sleepers, the construction of the adjoining walls are on the thin side. I think this is a common construction feature among the Residence Inn brand, if memory serves me right.
One of our rooms was next to an occupied room and we could hear their conversation, and they could arguably hear our TV, that I used to muffle their conversation. Guests opening and closing doors, foot traffic in the hallway, can be heard, too. So, if you're a light sleeper, you may want to ask for a room at least one door away from an occupied one.
Besides that, most travelers will find this hotel to be priced well when looking for hotels near San Jose, CA.
