Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 332RICK Great Value and Service
I have stopped here at least 4 times with in the last 2 months and the service has been consistent.
This location is centered perfectly, only a few minutes from any where in the bay area right off the 880 freeway.
I must say this location is not new but they do keep it up well.
Important thing here is you will sleep like a baby!
The beds and comfort are great, the A/C is nice and cold, great for those hot summer nights.
Overall its a great place value for your buck.

The menu is very outdated as is the decor. Both the restaurant and bar are dark and dingy.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DGPT Price matters
This room was $100 below market average the days I needed to stay. So I took it.
But, price does matter!
It was old, dirty and smelly. I dropped my phone next to the bed and it was a very unpleasant retrieval. The Air conditioner smelled like an old wet mop when it came on.
The staff was friendly and competent, however, it does not make up for the inadequacies of the room.
If they had made a trip to Lowe's to get a $10 OUTLET STRIP for my room it may have prevented me from writing a bad review.
i would only stay here if price is your most important criteria.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BODM Nice place to stay
Very freiendly staff. Clean facility. On a busy road and my room was very quiet. Close to shopping and restaurants. Only complaint - they did not serve (or at least they did not offer) coffee with breakfast buffet.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JayJ24 Average stay, misleading happy hour
My experience with this hotel was pretty average with only one complaint. After we checked in we went to the Crowne Royale Sports Bar & Lounge to enjoy the "complimentary hors d'oeuvre and discounted drinks." When we sat down, we were greeted by the bar tender and we asked if there was a drink menu. He said there wasn't so we then asked if there were any specials. He said there weren't any. We were a little confused and mentioned that on their website says they offer a happy hour from 5-7pm and there were supposed to be complimentary hors d'oeuvre and discounted drinks. He pointed out a table in the corner that had some taquitos and said those were the free hors d'oeurves but there were no discounted drinks and kept insisting that I must have been reading the description from another hotel property. Well, I knew I wasn't mistaken so I pulled up what I read on my phone and showed it to him. His supervisor happened to be standing by the bar at this time so he showed her. We were told the discounted drinks are only for platinum members and you are offered free bonus points or a drink voucher at the time of check-in and that's what they were referring to in their description. I told her that was very misleading and all I got was a "sorry." So in the end, we just ordered an overpriced boring draft beer and got out as quick as we could so we could go spend our money elsewhere at a local restaurant. While drinking our beers though, I think my complaint prompted some other guests to bring up some concerns of their own to the supervisor. I didn't hear their whole conversation but it was concerning the buffet. They just kept getting the same "sorry" I got but there were never any real solutions or outstanding customer service. Pretty dissapointing in that regard.

You put a sign up that says you want to help our valuable resources and please hang your towel if you do not need a clean one. Every morning I hang my towel and every evening I get a clean new one.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by David2000 In need of a refit....
I received a warm welcome at this hotel and everything was as you would expect at an IHG property except the condition of the rooms and halls.
The carpet had been patched outside our room and it only highlighted how old the original carpet on either side was.
The room furnishings were dated however there was a new mattress on top of the old base so although a little hard the room provided a good sleep.
The pool also had no towels available or a hot tub.
The place is really in need of a refit.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by pwh2ump4u Seriously Dissapointed
After 10 plus years of platinum membership this has had to of been the most dissapointing stay I have had. I understand this is an older property and as such shows age but should not show as being dirty. The carpets were worn and the elevator looked like it had not been cleaned in months. I addressed several concerns including not being able to "room charge" at the gift shop to one of the staff. She was attentive and seemed genuinly concerned, indicating the manager would get back to me the next day. I did recieve an email from the manager around 7 PM not addressing my concerns but "understanding I had some issues" and wanting to help. I am in a service related industry and as such take critic seriously and address them in a timely manner. The response from management coming as it did and 24 hours after the fact indicates to me that my problems were not valid enough to take seriously. Suffice to say, I have had my last stay at this property.
I have had nothing but good things to say with the IHG group of properties and will continue to do business. It is unfortunate that my stay made feel compelled to write this review.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by nwinlax They need to improve a lot
There is no alarm clock in the room. You better order the morning call or have your own alarm clock.
Not too many power outlets around the bed side.
The bathroom has only one power switch, turn light and fan turn on/off. You can't leave the light on during the night becuase the fan is very noisy. No night light so you will have hard time to find the switch at night.
I received free breakfast but the waiter didn't seem happy to serve any customers. May be it was a buffet, he only collected money at the cashier.
The swiming pool area packed with smokers. I thought this was a non smoking hotel.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Alex916 Comfortable bed, lacking room quality
Even at a discounted price, this hotel room was not worth it. The quality of the room is old and poor.
The ironing board was stained and old. The bathroom floor when I came in was wet. A/C on the wall doesn't work so there is an individual unit near the window. Television has channels but the quality is average. There was not enough outlets in convenient places. No light switches for the lamps. Elevator is slow and looks old.
The only thing nice about this place was that the
amenities were nice, internet was fast, and check-in and out process was easy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by su23 Good hotel
Used Pointbreak from IHG, so obtained the room at a great deal. The front desk staff was great, rooms were clean, etc.
Only 3 issues:
1. the hallway had a weird damp smell
2. the carpets are old and/or ugly and need to be refreshed/replaced
3. the internet is very unreliable. said too many people were already connected and wouldn't let me log in!

If your IHG member, try stay in Holiday Inn Express across the freeway. At least it comes with the free breakfast and there is a plaza and movie theater within steps. For this Crowne Plaza hotel, 7-eleven is next to you.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lane5625 No better place to be
The staff, from the desk, to the restaurant, and the bar, are very friendly, helpful, and professional. The hotel is constantly updating the amenities in the room so you will have a very pleasant experience. They also respond to comments. I did not like the bed cover being located in between the sheets. It was too close to my body and I could feel it when I moved making my sleep uncomfortable, so they moved the bed cover to the top of the sheets and and it feels great. Bottom line, they listen and respond. Natalia is the best, make sure you tell her.

Quite a few channels on the tv but no guide to what channel was what number or what was on each one. Bathroom a little dark. Bed and pillows were very comfortable.
First set of keys didn't work, second set didn't work after 2 days.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lois B A Best Buy for my East Bay Stay
The hotel was modern and clean. The staff were helpful. As a woman traveling alone, I felt safe on the property. It's conveniently located near the freeway, with a nice mall and supermarket on the other side of I-880. It was the most affordable and yet the nicest hotel I've stayed in while visiting the East Bay area. The drive the Alameda was never more than 30 minutes, sometimes only 20.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Rents Poor service at desk
I was first helped out by Natalia. She did a great job and was very friendly.
My key failed to open the door on my first am .it took a very longtime to get help on the counter and finally someone came out of the back to help. The person that was originally on he desk only had on client but she had to keep going to the back office and asking for help. I'm sure she was new and being trained, problem was the trainer was in back.
I had to add another night to my stay which again took way too much time. I asked about my key needing updated and she ran it through. Next am key didn't work again and had to go through he same thing at the front desk.
I have usually had very good service at the desk. Maybe new staff other then Natalia but I was not impressed with the changes made

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by r1234 Poor dining experience and more
After 20 minutes, I left the dining room without getting my Nachos. There were only 5 people in the room, 3 of which already had their food. There was a STRONG musty odor in my room and turned out to be an OLD mini bar refrigerator that did not work and probably did not work for over six months. I had it removed and all was okay.
The heat did not work in my room. They failed to replace the "plastic bag" in my ice bucket. I hung my towels daily to help save on water and I got clean fresh towels daily.
In all fairness, I will try this property again and I did speak to the manager who assured me she would look into this and asked that I try again.

Excellent service, great costumer experience, and a clean room. I tend to stay at the Crowne plaza in San Jose/Milpitas boarder and I am really getting sick of their horrible customer service. I am happy to see great customer service still exists these days. I will plan on staying at the union city location from now on.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by rmpder Dissappointing
This hotel has seen better days. Admittedly, I paid a short visit, arriving at 11pm and out by 7:30am, so perhaps I missed something. What I did experience was a room that had a smell of mildew. While it looked clean, I could not get past the odour, and that certainly made me feel it was not clean.
The only amenity other than the room I used was the fitness center, which was also very poor. A poor selection of equipment that was not in good condition. The room also had the same mildew issue I mention in the paragraph above.
I was pretty disappointed in this property and certainly do not feel it deserves the 4star rating it has on the IHG site.
