Reviewed July 1, 2014

Nice hotel, fairly new. Clean, decent free breakfast, FREE WiFi! Staff were courteous and helpful. Fairly quiet. Recommend stay on non street side. Will likely stay again. Inexpensive for the quality you get for hotels in this area (San Jose)

I was not impressed by my stay at this hotel, but maybe this is the norm for this area of California. The hotel is next to a very busy street and there was a lot of noise in the room from the street. The breakfast was pretty minimal and the waffles were subpar. When I complained about some of these issues, I found the staff to be of little help. One positive is that the hotel is close to Santa Clara University, so if that location is important, you may want to consider it, but otherwise, I suggest looking at other hotels.

Room Tip: Request a room away from the street noise.

I was very nicely surprised. Brand new furniture, modern, comfortable, almost luxurious. Nice hot tub, swimming pool, free breakfast. And they had rooms available on a holiday, the price was affordable too.

Just stayed here for 2 nights when on business in Silicon Valley (San Jose, CA) and it was a lovely little airport hotel.
Very clean and very nicely appointed (warm modern deco) rooms. I was in room 214 and was not disturbed at all by and aircraft noise or road noise even though close to San Jose Airport.

The staff on front desk were lovely and I will certainly stay here again when in the Bay Area again in July. Perfect location for Bay Area meetings.

I did not get breakfast either day during my stay so can not comment on that. Wifi in my room was reliable and fast and parking was perfect.

Room Tip: Room 214 was very nice and quiet.

This hotel is close to the airport with shuttle service to and from the airport. It's in an area that looks not so good but I felt safe. There isn't a hot breakfast at this location but it was a lot less expensive than the other BW in the Oakland area. The hotel was very quiet so I slept well. Staff was friendly.

This is a great hotel. The location is superb for SJC and for the university. I just do not understand why they do not have an airport shuttle.

The room was very nice, but some of the lights did not work, the shower could barely get warm, let alone hot, and the bath mat was ripped and torn. Fix these little things and the place gets 5/5.

The exercise room was about average.

The location is great for food options, with plenty of options just a small but pleasant walk towards the university.

I was traveling alone and searched for a place with great reviews and a central proximity to several locations. After scouring review on TripAdvisor I chose this one. I was soooo pleased! The hotel was easy to find and very close to the airport. Safeway is just down the road and a gas station is directly across the street, which meant I could fill my rental car up the night before without driving all around or finding something close to the airport. The rooms are updated, very clean, comfortable and spacious. I had left my phone charger at home and they were very sweet to loan me one. I had intended on using the workout facility but never had a chance. For breakfast I only I had a few moments to run downstairs for a quick cup of coffee an some fresh fruit but the breakfast spread was good and I hear it's going to be even better! The staff was wonderful, very helpful and friendly. I would stay here every time I came to visit alone or with my family. I felt very very safe and secure here! I was not disappointed by all the positive reviews and would highly recommend the hotel to everyone!
