Ok for one night before the early flight

The hotel looked run down and room smelled of old moldy place. Ok only for one night if you have an early flight from the airport. Wouldn't recommend to stay here for more than that.

Well Maintained Grounds, Old San Jose Charm

The staff was nice and friendly. The grounds were over 50 years old, but had been kept up nicely. The pool was beautiful with a safety fence. The workout facility was ok. The restaurant was good, especially for dinner. Breakfast was very busy and the buffet looked like a food fight broke out around it, but the scampering staff did their best to keep up. The rooms were very clean. The hallways were well lit with new carpeting and paint. Even the bathrooms by the restaurant were 4 diamond with individual toilet room stalls. Close to airport, free shuttle service and car storage while you fly away for $10. Close and easy access to 101 and 880 freeways too. Big bang for the buck! We will be back.

Great hotel for a short trip

The hotel was great. I enjoyed my stay. Really close to the airport and downtown. The walls maybe thin but I wouldn't mind stay here again.

Outdated

The hotel room was like something out of a horror movie. It literally looked haunted. The bathroom had creepy decor. Everything in our room looked outdated and dirty. Staff was very rude!! Will never stay here again.

Excellent San Jose Location

We were impressed with the lovely flower gardens, well maintained roses, pleasant walking path, very lovely swimming pool and beautiful palm trees. In addition, we appreciated the location that made the early morning trip to the airport a breeze and visit to downtown San Jose very simple for people unfamiliar with the area. Our room was pleasant, the bed comfortable, the whole experience quite satisfying. As we stayed for only one night, we didn't have a chance to do much at the hotel, but if we were staying any longer, (which may happen in the future), I would very much enjoy and appreciate a simple upright piano somewhere in the lobby that would allow me to enjoy what I love doing the most, and, possibly, a ping-pong table to meet my need for meaningful fun and exercise.

We got in late with a 21 month old child. The front desk clerk was very helpful and provided us with a list of Pizza delivery services. We needed some fresh milk for my granddaughter. He offered to send his shuttle and driver to purchase some milk for her.
