“Decent property”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

This is not your typical Holiday Inn Express. The room entrance is from the outside. It is possibly a converted motel. The room we were in was clean and everything worked. They had a nice snack basket and bottled water in the room when we arrived. Plenty of pillows on the bed and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast bar was good-the usual stuff available..The person replenishing the bar was very friendly and helpful. My only complaint was the traffic noise. We had a room near the street and the noise from the traffic woke me up early.

Room Tip: Don't get a room near the front. There is too much traffic on the street early in the morning...

Provided the nicest welcome basket I have ever received and I travel over 40 weeks per year. Also had ice waiting in the room in the freezer. Provided me with additional bottled water each day as opposed to just at check-in. Wi-fi was free and fast, most free connections and some that you are billed for usually connect very slow, this one connected at about 130 all week.

We loved everything except that is set up as a motel. All rooms face the parking lot and noisy smokers kept talking outside until I opened my doors and went off at them (after midnight!!).
The staff is excellent! The rooms are very nice, updated HIE quaility. We had a nice welcome basket and bottles of water because we joined the HIE Club.
This locations offeres a Winchester House package which is a great value but the location is too far.
The breakfast is great!!! Tons of food and staff was again great!
Small pool with detached hot tub. I would stay here again if we came back to SJ. But, I would want a room close to the main office and away from the smokers corner.

Room Tip: Join the HIE club to get little perks

I usually stay at HIEs wherever I go, but the AM front desk hostess, Kopal, was especially cordial and helpful on 7.8.12. She made sure the pancake batter was made in a timely manner, and I just felt very taken care of during breakfast. I would stay here again if I were in town just because she was so nice. Thank you HIE and Kopal!

It's been a long time since I've been to a "travel" type of hotel that has been this good. When we arrived, the clerk was very friendly, we could understand her English, and she provided a great "goodie bag" with popcorn, energy bars, chips, etc. Our room was spotlessly clean, updated with granite etc., and with two complimentary bottles of water.

We stayed 5 nights and the housekeeping was perfect. Our room was really cleaned every day, and we got 2 complimentary bottles of water every day. The pool and hot tub were also clean, clean, clean. The public bathrooms were beautiful and spotless. Grounds beautiful with lots of flowers and plants.

The motel was pretty quiet, even though it was on a busy street. The sheets were nice and the bed was super comfortable---no morning backaches. The taqueria at the super market next door was wonderful---very affordable and delicious.

Again, I can't say enough about this place. Spotlessly clean and friendly service. Great place!

Room Tip: It's best to ask for a room farthest away from the street.

We stayed two days with the whole family there. Rooms are big, nice and clean. The pool is not big, but good for nice swim.
The people at the reception are very nice, friendly all the time.
Kopal served us coffee from the rich breakfat buffet and asked whether she could do anything more fur us.. And they even had fresh pancakes from a pancake maker.

I had a great stay at this hotel. The property appears to be very recently renovated. The room was very clean, the bathroom was clean, the bed was comfortable. The AC worked great and kept me very comfortable. My only request for update is more Power Plugs. I would stay here again and recommend that others do too. The staff was very friendly and very dedicated to me having a good experience.
