Clean, comfortable stay

We just needed a place to sleep during a busy 3-day weekend trip. This Holiday Inn served our needs quite well.

Perfect for my business overnight stay

The room was clean, comfortable, and quiet (especially nice since it's within a mile of the San Jose airport. The restaurant/bar offered a modest selection of menu items but there were many options just across the street for dining as well, including a Starbucks. The fitness facility is open 24 hours and is well-equipped. The rooms towards the middle had nice outdoor seating viewing the pool, spa and gazebo - really a pleasant environment. And while I thought it was a good idea that they inserted the TV into a cove in the room (so it wouldn't disturb neighboring guests, the TV was in an odd position to watch comfortably from the bed and it didn't allow you to swivel or move the TV. That would probably be my only complaint. Add a swivel base to the TV and the problem would be solved.

Affordable, but a nice play to stay.

The kids attened the fanime convention. I stayed there. It was nice to be away from the crowds like last year at the Marriott where it would take 20 minuties to get an elevator.

enjoyed ourselves

The hall ways needed freshening, paint and carpet. The rooms needed better attentions to cleaning. The top of the blow drier had heavy layer of dust. The toilet rocked and leaked at the floor connection.One of the TV cabinets was being leveled using the menu for room service. The beds were very comfortable the location is great, easy access, good on off for the freeway. Staff was friendly.
