Stayed in a 2 bedroom suite with 2 teenagers here for a soccer tournament. the room and furnishings were so clean and fresh looking you would think they were brand new. Don't know if I've ever been in a cleaner room and wasn't really expecting to ind it at this price. Rooms are tastefully decorated and the suite comes with a full kitchen - real stove, full sized fridge. We weren't here long enough to need thst, but or a longer stay that would be a major convenience. Even though we were given a smoking suite (no non-smoking were available), amazingly, the room did not smell at all. Between the 2 bedrooms and living area there were 3 flat screen TVs. We didn't use the pool, but checked it out and it was good sized and clean. The free breakfast is the real deal. Too often breakfast buffets are picked over, cold eggs unless you are first in line. The kitchen staff kept the food coming so that they were constantly replenishing every dish. The morning we were there they offered two kinds of scrambled eggs, sausages, potatoes, a huge array of fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, bagels and a make your own waffle station and a wide selection of beverages. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful. New Park Mall is literally around the corner and is pretty good sized and has all the stores you'd expect o find at a suburban mall. This hotel is easy to get too, just minutes from the freeway. If I ever need to stay in Newark again, I will definitely come back here. If other Homewood Suites live up o the same standards, I'll seek them elsewhere as well

We recently stayed here when visiting San Francisco. We stayed in a two bedroom, two bath suite. There is a complete kitchen, including all utensils you might need. This was a great hotel, that offered not only free breakfast but, free weeknight dinners. We were only able to eat dinner there one night, but it was very good. I will stay at another Homewood Suite!

My teenage kids and i were here for 6 wonderful nights to wrap up summer before school began for another year. This hotel was fantastic.

The complimentary dinners served Mon-Thurs were superb and the daily breakfasts were just as good. Excellent variety at each meal including excellent healthy options---fresh fruit and oatmeal at breaky and a huge salad bar at dinner.

The pool, hot tub and sports court (hoops) was excellent; always clean and frankly rarely used which suited us just fine.

The rooms were real nice and clean and the kitchens had all the stuff you'd ever want or need to prepare some meals for yourselves.

The hotel also features a popular BBQ area with two grills and plenty of room to BBQ your evening away.

Location-wise, this hotel is central to San Jose to the south and San Fran to the north. The BART station is a short ten minute drive from the hotel.

There's excellent shopping close to the hotel, Pacific Commons is definitely worth seeing if shopping is on your agenda. The older, more run down mall behind the hotel, no longer has Target but it is still a worthwhile place to shop and there's rarely anywhere near a crowd in there.

The fitness room in the hotel and the executive room for computer use or TV is well equipped and in pristine condition.

Staff were friendly at all times, without exception.

This hotel is in a very safe area of town, walking distance to the Newpark Mall (2 minutes) and a 3 minute walk to a few mini malls for fast food (Taco Bell, Jack in the Box and others etc)

You won't find a better place to hang your hat in this part of California and it also affords you the convenience of easy access to transportation links (BART) to get you to Oakland or San Francisco.

I have to say I really enjoyed my brief stay at this hotel. The room had a nice, usable layout. The furniture was comfortable and in good condition. It was clean.

The breakfast buffet was very good with fresh fruit and a waffle maker being the highlights.

I would rate this as a good value at $120 a night.

The fact that I got this room for well under $100 sends it over the top for me. Two thumbs up!

Booked for two nights to attend funeral and this hotel stay was pleasant, peaceful (nothing to be annoyed about) and comfortable. The room was exactly as in the picture, sufficient and unpretentious. Room and bathroom, and sofa were clean and spotless. Linens and towels were fresh and the pillows smelled fresh. Parking was free and the area is good, and hotel easy to find. Breakfast was wonderful. Hot foods as well as regular cold food selection. The breakfast staff was so pleasant , so welcoming and constantly replenishing and wiping areas. I was impressed. There were many regulars it seems everyone was just social. ( no conference booked) Checkin and out was easy, no problems with bill or overcharges. All in all a very pleasant stay and would stay there again.
