Affordable San Jose airport hotel provides convenient value with style

Free airport shuttle service and a crowd-pleasing casual Italian restaurant on-site sweeten the deal for everyone.

San Jose trip one

Staff were friendly and helpful. Pool was pretty nice. Rooms were fairly comfortable and clean. Ice machines were far away from my room and didn't work well if it at all at times

OK - Wasn't Impressed

I booked for 2 nights (in 10/07 & out 10/09) --- they never came to change sheets or replace towels. Before leaving for lunch, I made a request. Upon returned at night, I noticed that 2 rolls of toilete papers was left on the small counter where the coffee maker was (???).........I asked if I could check out a bit later than noon time because my flight was delayed for an hour, the lady replied: sorry, all rooms are now fully booked (Sunday 10/09/11) and you can't check out late. The wireless works fine, however!

Ok - Average

Liked: Free Parking, Wireless Internet Disliked: in room service. Failed to replace bed sheets, towels, etc. even request was made. Room was sort of dirty, but attendants said no room clean is available, etc. 88+tax/night wasn't a great deal after all.

Fair value easy stay for Airport travel

Would consider staying at this hotel again, the room was clean, the staff helpful, and we had easy fast access to the airport. There we some items in our room which were in need of repair and others that were poorly repaired.

Comfortable but no frills

If you are looking for a romantic getaway, this isn't the place. If you're looking for a convenient location and a comfortable bed at a reasonable price, this is a good choice. Fitness center was convenient and had some good machines but it was small.

You get what you pay for

The staff is great, but the rooms are very old and even though you have a balcony you can't use it as the sliding doors in the rooms only open 4 inches for ventilation. It's a clean cheap hotel but is not as comfortable as the Courtyard or Fairfield Inn which are also close by. There is a very large outdoor area with a great pool to relax by which you don't get elsewhere, but it comes at the trade off of having an older TV (non-flatscreen) with limited choices for programming and average size rooms.

Location is good

Very close from SJC, and amenities are ok. There are jaccuzi and fitness center. Each room has patio on first floow and balcony on second floow. However, we can not step in to balcony for security purpose...

Okay, but not great

The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The shuttle to and from the airport was convenient and fast. As for the hotel itself - it was just okay. While the pool and hot tub areas were nice, the room left something to be desired. It was clean, but old. The hotel was a bit shabby overall.
