Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by vn68vet Plesant/ Close to everything
I lived in San Jose 34 yesrs ago. Went back for a reunion with some old friends, Tailgate and football game at SJSU. The hotel was just a few minuets away, Close to J-town where we went for some outstanding Japanese food, and just minuets away from a great Church. The Hotel itself was very comfortable and accessable from all bordering streets. Breakfast Buffet was well stocked , eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes, either pancakes or french toast. Variety of fruits, paistries and cereals. Staff was very friendly and accomodating. If you knew where you wanted to go but didn't know how to get there the ladies at the front desk would Google and print out directions for you. All in all a very plesant experience. Will probably stay there when we return.

Although the front desk staff was a little confused at times, especially when calling directly for reservations, the rest of the staff was outstanding. The gentleman working in the cocktail lounge was very polite and helpful. The shuttle bus drivers were outstanding and very willing to accommodate our large group.
The restaurant staff was excellent as well and also went out of their way to serve us. Would stay again if we had the occasion to do so.

So overall this was a good experience where I can rest and relax a bit while dealing with surgery and other personal matters.
• Close to a freeway, but not too close where it's noisy.
• Easy access to a many malls, a casino (tables only), and a 24 hour iHop, which was OUTSTANDING.
• Don't judge a book by its cover. It's looks like a run down apartment from the outside, but once you go in, it's pretty elaborate. Comfortable rooms too.
• Good WiFi for what it's worth (clocked in downloads @ 45Mbps)
• The cleaning crew needs more staff, step up their game or both. They cleaned, but I'm used to everything being all set by Noon at the latest. There were a couple days where the room wasn't cleaned until like 4PM, which was unacceptable. I was unable to get to my room at check in time for that very reason. Had to wait another hour.
• Probably an isolated incident, but parking was full on Saturday night due to a convention, party or whatever. All I know was that it was crowded and I wasn't invited.
I wouldn't judge anyone's decision on what happened Saturday. I'd go again if I could because I needed quiet, and that's what I got. But the cleaning crew really needs to be there a little more prompt. Coming in when the sun will set in an hour doesn't sit well with me and probably others.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jack244 Noisy Outdated Room
I was here on business. The room was very noisy you could here airplane landing till late at night and taking off early in the AM. The shower had a loud high pitch ring when in use and the toilet ran nonstop. The room decor was outdated and dark. The hotel staff was semi-courtious/professional but could have been more concerned with issues presented to them such as the noisy shower toilet running issue and atmosphere. I mentioned these issues several time to the desk personnel and nothing was done. The hotel gym is also very cramped with short ceilings so for tall people it is impossible to use the treadmill comfortable without the feeling of hitting you head.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Locatesunny Expected more for the price. Great brand but a big let down!
I was excited to be staying with a good hotel but it started off with the lady at the reception providing wrong information to the airport shuttle. I was stranded at the airport for 45 minutes. Finally when I arrived, the staff was helpful but unwelcoming and I had a feeling I was entering some dingy room while going up the hallway. Finally when I reached the room, it was clean but as soon as I sat on the bed it started squeaking. I switched on the free tv and there were only local channels and the internet that was free was terrible! The water glasses were unclean, no fridge in the room. The coffee maker had all dust as if it was not cleaned for ages. Upon calling for housekeeping for some clean glasses, I was asked to come to the front desk to collect those. Day 2 , The receptionist asked if I had a car reserved and if yes she could validate the parking. I told her that I will be picking up one later in the day evening and she could validate it then. She did not mention that there is a $10 parking fee ( did not know until I saw it appear on my bank account. There was no indication during my entire stay , I was not informed nor asked for any signatures, just debited from my account) when there was plenty of road side parking and my friend lived right in the next lane with a free parking spot available for guests. When I came back in the evening , the anti skid mats from the restroom were gone and the floor was left wet! tv did not work, wifi did not work and glasses were not changed. I think I would have been happier at a motel with a more comfortable bed, free parking, breakfast , friendly staff at a much lesser price!

The room needs more amenities besides a good bed and a TV.
This is an older property and needs more upgrades to the room. The closest was miissing half of the sliding door. Needed a refrigerator for insulin and none was available.
The room was clean and the breakfast was exceptional.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JDG1234 I guess it could have been worse, at least I got a bed to sleep in.
So not the best yet no the worst experience. If I don't have to stay there again I won't, but if I don't have a choice a clean bed is all I ask. I was only here as all the marriot and hilton brand hotels in the area where booked. Stay started well, I was promptly picked up at the airport. The driver was very nice and a free bottle of water was a nice small plus. Got to the hotel and my key, head down the hall, up the elevator, down the hall again, inserted my key, the green light went off, but the door didn't open. The dead bolt was on. Tried once again to convince myself. This time heard a concerned couple from within. Turn around lugging my bag while exhausted back to the front desk, get a new key to an unoccupied room even though they swear to me the first was vacant. Get to my new room, iron my clothes for the next day, take a quick shower, reach for a towel and see a black spot on it. Look at the towel closer and release it is an ant. Try another towel and it seems to be fine. Get out of the shower and release there are at least a dozen or two ants in the bathroom once you start looking, yeah....Sheets are not soft and rather scratchy but they look clean and at this point that is all that matters. On the way out the hotel in the morning though to top my stay I stepped on gum somewhere on my departure as it wasn't there when I put them on in my room and I saw it when I reached only a few steps into the parking lot. So now I am battling getting gum off my dress shoes when I am traveling for the week away from home.

The room category was a "Queen Corner Feature." Sounds good? Think again. Possibly the smallest hotel room I have ever stayed in and I am in hotels every single week. Disappointed was an understatement.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Travelingguy12341234 Been coming here for years
I have stayed here for a long time, starting when they were a Wyndham. This is absolutely the best hotel for staying near SJC airport. The staff is phenomenal, particularly the front desk and bar staff. The location is great, the rooms and lobby have been completely updated, and the restaurant is even pretty good. They also have an airport shuttle. I absolutely recommend this hotel anytime you need to be close to San Jose airport.

The Staff is awesome, the front desk really makes the property worthwhile. I have been visiting for over 4 months and I am continually impressed by the level of professionalism, helpfulness and their ability to make the guest feel comfortable.
I would not stay as frequently as I do at the property if it was not for the staff.

Overall, a very enjoyable experience. Great staff, clean, good service.
BUT, the last day and night of our stay, the next room was occupied by a "working" girl.
The noise started around 4 in the afternoon and finally stopped with a few hits on the wall around mid-night followed by 2 telephone calls.
O property of this caliber should not have guests such as this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wedding928 Clean comfortable hotel with excellent service
My husband and I stayed at the Holiday Inn San Jose-Airport when we came into town for our son's wedding. We found the hotel to be clean and comfortable. The lobby is spacious, but has furniture groupings that make it feel comfortable. The bed was very comfortable. Usually I sleep very poorly the first night somewhere new, but my husband and I both slept fine. The breakfast buffet in the morning was excellent. I especially enjoyed the crisp potato squares and the cinnamon-raisin french toast. The food selection was very good and it was very fresh, and included a lot of fresh fruit. Usually we get up early to get breakfast while it's fresh, but we found that the quality of the breakfast at 9:30 a.m. was entirely as good as the quality at 6:30 a.m., because they keep bringing out fresh food. The wait staff at breakfast were extremely attentive, serving coffee and juices. We have never been so well waited on at a buffet (our previous experiences at other hotel breakfast buffets have been more along the line of "go for yourself."). The fitness room was very nice, pleasantly painted, with mirrors, and very good, health-club quality equipment. Although we didn't swim, we did sit outside in the courtyard, which was quite pleasant. We also didn't use the airport shuttle service, but it was one of the reasons we picked this hotel. I would not hesitate to stay here again. It was an excellent experience, and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. The only thing I didn't like was the volume of the TV in the hotel lobby. It was louder than I would prefer -- but that's just me -- I like things quite.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Pflish close to SJC airport
The front desk personnel were friendly and very accommodating. Although the standard room may have been newly renovated, it had no refrigerator and I felt cramped. I was then assigned to a Suite where the room was enormous I guess housekeeping has a hard time going over the door handles, etc because it had fingerprints on it and the refrigerator was full of ice that I couldn't fit anything on the top shelf. I guess I will continue with bringing my Clorox wipes. But all in all, I slept well and arrived at the car rental and airport in plenty of time since it was extremely close to the hotel. . .

There are internet connectivity problems that are not made clear at check-in. In fact the desk staff do not own-up to the issues until you have been routed through the time wasting help desk.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 San Jose - Airport
The bathroom and room were not clean. There was a leak in the bathtub which caused water to spill all over the tile floor. The property charged me between $5 and $10 each time I left the parking area. There was a big sign by the front door advising guests to validate their parking. When I asked the front desk, I was told that I didn't qualify for validation as overnight parking was not included in my room rate. Would have been nice if someone had told me this up front before I wasted $25 more dollars. Also, I have never stayed at a hotel (and I have stayed at many# where breakfast was not included. In this case, I saw numerous guests around me give their tickets to the server. I paid an additional $18 #including tip) for a mediocre buffet meal. I have stayed at Holiday Inn properties in the past and they were good. I am not sure what is up with this particular location, but the physical plant and staff could use some brushing up.
