“Ok for one quick night.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2014 via mobile

I stayed here for one night for a business trip. When I called the night before to make the reservation the guy on the phone acted like I was bothering him. Arrived at the hotel and the parking lot had a lot of light which was nice. The lady at the front desk was nice enough. The room was a Very basic no frills room. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. The in room Internet worked good. The breakfast was horrible. I threw it away and just had orange juice. If you need a quick room then ok but there is a better place a few blocks away at the Hampton Suites for the same or lower cost.

Stayed January 2014, travelled on business

I stayed in this hotel in month of October-November 2013. The San Jose Downtown area is just 10 mins away drive; and Plant Shopping Centre & Oak Hill Cemetry area at walking distance from this hotel. I found my room quite spacious and clean along with all required facilities, such as, a satellite TV, oven, AC, a comfortable study stable, free WiFi etc. I found out the hotel staff friendly and helpful. Also, breakfast was included in the room charge and was good. The staff would support you to arrange a cab to Downtown San Jose and San Francisco city/airport at just 5 mins notice. Enjoyed my stay here.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are better and staying in Ground floor is better.

Had never stayed at the Holiday Inn Express - was very pleased with the staff & the room was nice & clean. Breakfast was a nice bonus. In the exercise area they also provide free bottle water another nice bonus. Would stay at this hotel again.

This is a slightly difficult property to describe. My first impression was based on the property being converted from a motel type design. All rooms have external exposure to the walk way. From the first impression, I was pleasantly surprised with all the nice touches by a thorough remodel of the property. The rooms were modern with nice fixtures and comfortable beds. All rooms and the lobby area was very clean. There was parking available without charge, internet was included, and they had a decent breakfast each morning. Also, I found the hotel staff to be easy to work with and willing to assist as needed. Each request for a cab was greeted with a pleasant response to allow for 10 to 15 minutes. Also, each request was fulfilled as promised. Overall, I would return to this property and recommend this property to other travelers in the area.

Nice place! Some of my colleagues stayed at the Hilton or Marriott near the convention center; I chose this place as having a way more reasonable price. No regrets at all: no crowds, free parking, free wi-fi, well-maintained room and furnishings, little fridge and microwave, iron & ironing board, big TV with DirecTV, free hot breakfast (bacon, ham, sausage, eggs, biscuits & gravy, cinnamon rolls, muffins, pastries, fruit, yogurt, etc.)...and they even give ya a little welcome goody bag with munchies. Staff were nice too. What the heck more do you want? If you want fancy, this isn't your place. I don't need fancy. Next time I'm in San Jose, I'll be back!

We were in town to watch a couple of San Jose Sharks games at the SAP arena, it is a 10 minute drive, tops. The rooms are very big, with lots of closet space, free wifi, coffee and water. The free breakfast was very good as well and the rooms were quiet for a good nights sleep. Ideal.
