My idea of ‘Above Average’ may be much different from most willing to settle for an inexpensive room… However, as a business traveler, I look for cleanliness, bed comfort, fast internet, and conveniences like a refrig and microwave. A view is always the cherry on top of my rapid rewards. Picky.
Okay – Holiday Inn Express – San Jose. Stayed here twice this quarter.
Because the rooms face outside in a typical motel fashion, I was worried that this would be an older property with sub-par amenities and décor. It turned out to be a surprise!
Check in was quick, and I was offered a beer, and given a carb-filled welcome bag of bliss.
Room: Pulled down the sheets to check for hairs. Very clean sheets! Newer HIE style décor. Bed was comfortable and pillows did not smell like hair tonic! Shower was that big megaphone that is found in all newer properties, and the towels were nice. Provided toiletries were the usual cinnamon scented stuff. Free wireless internet.
Doors slam and rock the room. Maids are up and at it early, rolling those cleaning bins gleefully across the walkway… one by one waking up us all!
Right under a flight path – the gym is cool, the setting is safe, and you could get a room with a view! A bit on the noisy side as thus. I was hesitant to stay prior to checking in to the room, however, I was surprised to find both my stays here very pleasant!
