Clean, pleasant smell on entering. Everything worked, great shower. Personnel were all helpful and friendly. Fridge and microwave were both good. Internet was strong and fairly fast. Bed was comfortable. A/c was good, but a little noisy. I all it was a great value and I would stay there again

The front desk lady was friendly and helpful through out our stay. The non smoking room was larger than i expected and was spacious enough for the kids to play around. I was glad there was a good size refrigerator in the room to keep our drinks cold in this heat. The bathroom was clean and had a good shower. The most pleasant part of the 3 night stay was the size and comfort of the bed that lead to 3nights of great sleep. Having a 2 storey chuck e cheese within walking distant is just a great benefit when you have kids. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this hotel to others.

I booked this hotel online. I wanted a non-smoking with two queen beds. I showed up to check in and the front desk lady gave me a room. When I got to the room it was a stinky smoking room with one one. The carpets are filthy. I try to change the room but she said there aren't any available. It looks like a very unsafe neighborhood to stay in. We quickly took our luggage back out to the car and left for a better hotel. I would never stay here again. It is the worst hotel ever. The parking lot looks more like a truck stop than a hotel.

Room Tip: Don't stay at this hotel. I paid less to stay closer to the airport.

My partner and I recently stayed at the Fontaine Inn in San Jose. We travel a lot and stay at a lot of hotels. We had a great couple of nights here, and would definitely stay again. Actually, our first night in town we were at the Fontaine Inn, we then went a couple doors down to a slightly cheaper motel where they "leave the light on for you", but then came back to the Fontaine Inn for night three for the amenities were much better. It's so nice when you are traveling and you can bring your leftovers back to a nice cold fridge in the room (the coldest we have ever come across, it even kept our ice ceam frozen!! :-) This was also coupled with excellent customer service in the office by Mitt and the rest of the staff. Mitt was very attentive and easy to talk to. We liked that the pool here is so well hidden from the outside, in fact we didn't even know there was a pool until our second stay! We had a lot of business to take care of all over San Jose, and the Fontaine Inn is perfecty central to everything. We will definitely be staying here again.
