My stay was great and the hotel exceeded my expectations. The desk staff was friendly and helpful all hours ( The desk is manned 24 hrs a day.) The parking was plentiful in a secure parking lot. There is a CVS Drug store next door which was convenient. I liked the jacuzzi tub and fridge and microwave in the room. the room was clean when I arrived and house keeping staff kept it that way. The airport and entry onto 101 and the interstate highway system are all close. All the rooms have entry from interior hallways. If I ever go back to San Jose, this hotel is where I will stay. ...

If going to a concert at the HP Pavilion....awesome choice! Rooms are very clean, comfy and close to venue. There is a full breakfast in the morning...a plus. Plan to come back in the future!

Tip: some days you get sufficient towels and other days you don't - curious. Be sure to specify no-smoking even though all rooms are supposedly non-smoking we had to change rooms upon arrival as smoke smell was so strong.

I loved this hotel and will stay here again, but a couple of points: The advertised in-room jacuzzi is really just an extra big jacuzzi tub in the bathroom. t's right next door to a CVS pharmacy for all your needs you may have forgotten, and it's also just down the street in either direction from many restaurants and bars. Walking distance to the HP Pavilion as well! The hotel feels safe and secure and is remarkably quiet (we had a room facing the street) for being on a busy street. The doors to the hotel are locked after a certain time at night so one can't enter without the hotel key. Added security! And I gotta mention the free breakfast. French toast, pancakes, biscuits & gravy, scrambled eggs, sausages, cereal and juice....all complimentary with the room stay. ...

I would definately stay there again. Staff was friendly. The interior is dated but it reminds me of the older hotels that have quite a bit of charm.

If you are going to a concert at the HP Pavilion, this is a great place to stay. It was a short walk and you don't have to worry about parking. Santana Row is only a few miles away with great shopping and restaurants. The decor of the hotel and room we stayed in could use some updating but it was fine for the price. My only complaint was that they didn't have a very good breakfast. ...

If Jacuzzi tub is important to you, bring your own rubber mat to prevent slipping in the tub. Hotel overall was forgettable.
