“Nice Stay”
Reviewed 2 May 2013

I stayed at this hotel on business in April 2013. This hotel is what you would expect from a Residence Inn. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. They have an evening social hour and morning breakfast, both complimentary. I did not partake in the evening social, but I did eat breakfast in the morning, which was pretty good. The hotel has a small exercise room with cardio equipment. The staff is friendly. The internet access is also complimentary but a little on the slow side. The hotel is easy to access from US-101. The rooms also have full-sized refrigerators, a stove, microwave, dishes, and silverware. I was only here for a day and did not use these, but this is a nice hotel at a reasonable price. If I were to stay longer, I could see myself taking advantage of the kitchen amenities.

The staff here was very friendly and provided great service. The rooms were up to date with flat screens in each bedroom and living room. We enjoyed a great breakfast every morning and were really treated quite nicely. Overall great experiences. I fly in to the San Jose area from Seattle on business very often and will definitely be back to this hotel!!! Great job everyone!!!

Room Tip: Just be nice to the staff and they will be nice back!

We asked for a quiet room and were put in B building on a corner. Traffic noise from Bernal Road made for an unpleasant night. There was a strong odor from the elevator as if someone had spilled food. Pictures on the website show a hot tub but the hot tub has been filled in. We checked out after our first night, had intended to stay 4.

Room Tip: Stay away from B building that faces the road.

This property was suprisingly in really good shape compared to many Residence inn properties I have stayed at in the past. The grounds were not destroyed by animal urine and feces as other similar RI properties. The rooms were the same as any other RI you would find anywhere. The beds are not the most comfortable and not sure why Marriott has not rolled out the higer end beds to Residence Inn's or why don't do this. If this ws done here you could not tell. The towels were more substantial than most other RI's I have stayed in and much better than at any Courtyard or Fairfield I have ever stayed in. The food offerings were good both in the morning and at night. Free beer and wine at night was a positive!
There is a grocery store across the strweet along with some other dining locations and a fast food place right next door. I did not stay long enough to need any of these but it is nice to know they are there should you need something.

Room Tip: Away for the main road up front

Used to live in South San Jose and every time we visit the Bay Area - we always stay in Residence Inn. The rooms are clean, well equipped kitchens, free breakfast, Lucky grocery just across the street and staff are very accommodating. You also get a good selection of restaurants around the area.This is a quiet side of San Jose and we feel safe getting back late at night in the parking lot. It's been a good experience all these years and will look forward to the next trip back to SJ.

Just stayed here for a business trip in October for a few nights and it was a great experience. Checked in with no issues, room was clean and staff was friendly. Dinner in the seating area was a nice plus since I wasn't aware that they offered this. Breakfast was available as well. Overall a great place and location and I will stay again!
