“great hotel option near SJC airport!”
Reviewed October 1, 2008

I stayed at this hotel while attending a work meeting at the nearby Doubletree hotel. What a great deal! The fairfield inn was cheaper than the *group discount* rate at the doubletree. In addition, the parking was free (Doubletree charges for it) and the internet was free (Doubletree charges for that too). And the room rate included a nice breakfast (Yes, Doubletree would have charged for that as well).

The location is pretty quiet at night, and not an inspiring place in terms of walkability in the area. But there's a starbucks so close to the front lobby that you could walk there for coffee in your jammies.

I normally report on the running options near various hotels. I didn't have time to look for outdoor running routes, but am not sure there's a lot of scenery nearby. Fortunately, the hotel has a decent exercise room with two good treadmills, so I still got my 5 miles in each morning.

This hotel is great for what it is: high-quality mid-priced lodging. I'll definitely stay there again if I am in the San Jose area.

  • Liked — Nice hotel with no nickel-and-diming on extra costs...
  • Disliked — Not a lively walkable scene in the neighborhood.

Had a great stay here!

When I first arrived, I had not stayed at a fairfield inn before and throught that it was kind of strange that there was no elevator to my 2nd floor room.

Besides that small fact, rooms were clean and decent. Not too much to say about them. The Pantene pro-v shampoo and rainwater shower head were nice. Flat screen tv's as previously metnioned were nice as well.

Free breakfast buffet was one of the better ones I've been to in terms of selection. Some of the food was cold however tho, but there are microwaves there as well. What was nice was that they had granola bars out as well, so you could grab one for a snack later.

One great thing about this hotel I liked was there was free bottled water in the lobby and free cookies as well. Get there quick though, because by arond 8pm all the cookies are gone.

I enjoyed the gym at this hotel quite a bit. There was a good flat bench press machine that most hotels don't have, in addition to other machines. There was also a water cooler in the gym as well.

I flew into Oakland and rented a car and drove to San Jose. This hotel was far superior than what I thought it would have been. It was very clean and the room was beautifully decorated, roomy and it even had a balcony. The grounds were immaculate, the pool was clean and the front desk employee was courteous, polite and very professional. The only complaint I would have, if any at all, was that there was only one person working at the breakfast buffet and it was extremely crowded. The poor employee was doing her best to keep up with keeping things stocked, but as it is at most buffet style breakfasts, the "feeders" depleted everything she put out. I would stay here again without a doubt. Even better is the location of this place. Only miles from downtown San Jose the hotel offers free shuttle to the airport also miles away. There is a light rail stop within about a block of the hotel that can even link you to BART from what I've heard.

We stayed here for one night before an early flight out at San Jose Airport, and this hotel was exactly what we needed. The room was clean, comfortable beds, and a nice HD LCD flat screen TV. The front desk was helpful with directions and the location is perfect being less than a mile from the airport. Would definitely stay here again.

This was our 2nd time staying at this hotel. Both times staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable with a LCD TV, mini fridge and microwave. Complementary breakfast is good with a nice assortment of hot and cold items. Good location by the airport and close to the freeway. We did not encounter any airport or freeway noise.

Right outside the hotel you will find: Starbuck, SubWay, Red Brick Pizza, Hawaiian BBQ and Chipotle Grill. Can't go wrong.

We stayed at this Fairfield because of its proximity to the San Jose Airport (which is excellent). Stayed at both the beginning of our trip and at the end. We probably will not stay here again if we ever need a hotel near this airport. Rooms are small but ok. Breakfast room is nice and they handle that fairly well. Free wi-fi is good. Front desk staff staff try very hard to be helpful but here's why this is just an average hotel...housekeeping could be beefed up...should have supervisors check things like the corners of the bathroom floor. There were two cardboard coffee cups but no plastic cups for other drinks and when I asked at the front desk, they had none (they would have sent for housekeeping to bring some...but that's just the point...they should have been in the room to start with!). We returned a rental car to the airport and (per hotel front desk directions when asked on check-in) called the hotel to send the shuttle. It took over 40 minutes (standing in 90degree plus temps) from that call (with two subsequent calls from my cell phone) before the shuttle finally showed up...and then the driver claimed no one ever told him he had a pick up. When I was finally returned in the shuttle, the front desk staff shifts had changed and the new clerk was very apologetic but "knew nothing" and gave me a $5 Starbucks gift card to placate. OK...so this isn't a fleabag...but we have just completed a full month in the state of California and this was far from the other places we stayed.

Fairfield Inns always seem a little plain and ordinary, but this one stood out among the rest. First the property is much larger than the average Fairfield. It has a large courtyard in the middle with a nice pool and it seemed like all the rooms hide a nice balcony. It's also in a very convenient area - easy access to US 101, a short drive to downtown, just a couple blocks from the airport, AND best of all, the local light rail picks up right outside the hotel. Also, there is a small strip center right outside the entrance with food options and a Starbucks. My room was very clean and comfortable with a sofa, which you don't often find in Fairfields. The TV was a nice flat panel, although they offered no HD channels, and the room has a micro/fridge. The staff was very nice, always greeted me when I came in, and the airport shuttle was very convenient.
