Guest Reviews

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 337 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stay at great price I reserved a little bit in advance and received a great discount on the room. The hotel is located only 10 mins from the airport, shuttle was not provided as I landed at 10PM, the cost for the cab is a flat 15$ rate. The staff at the reception desk was welcoming, to my surprise I was upgraded to an executive room on the 9th floor and received a complementary snack. The room was spacious, nicely decorated and the bathroom seemed to have been updated also. It was cleaned and the king size bed was comfortable. Buffet style breakfast the next morning (included on the price and copious to most standard) was tasty and plentiful. The staff was helpful in giving me some pointers on how to reach downtown through public transportation. I enjoy my stay, and most importantly, the price was right for me. I recommend it. Christine March 5, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Unable to answer if an event was being held at their hotel. I found it quite ridiculous that none of the staff was able to answer whether or not an event was being held at their hotel until a manager was on duty. When I called in the reservation and put a card on file, I told them I'd fax the authorization in the morning. I had no idea at the time they needed a copy of both the card and ID. I responded to the emailed form explaining when I could give them the info and I have yet to receive a response. Dealing with the staff was a total nightmare and I will never book a room for a business or personal stay ever again. Nor will I recommend anyone else to. February 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 1 Night Stay, wish I would have been able to stay longer!!! First Class hotel with EXCELLENT staff and accommodations. No problems at all. Room was very impressive (Executive Suite) we were able to entertain our guests before our event that we were all attending that evening. I would have loved to stay the full weekend, however our schedules would not allow it. I would DEFINITLY go back and stay again, and may do so in May of this year. I very HIGHTLY recommend this hotel. February 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great business and personal trip I am an Elite member with Holiday Inn but travel and stay with all the major brands, We stayed at this property last December 2013 on a business trip which also had time for personal time and relaxation. This property is exceptional, the staff was attentive, the rooms were clean and comfortable, and overall well maintained. We did spend 1 night in San Francisco to see the sights and stayed at another Holiday Inn there which I would not recommend to anyone. I was glad to get back to this property. I would recommend this property for business, relaxation, vacation or any other trip. I just made another reservation for this June 2014 to return for another week of business and pleasure and look forward to it. February 17, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Beds. And staff The staff were very friendly and made our stay very Good!! The only problem was the beds are so hard and uncomfortable !! February 12, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bad stay The room smelled and there was no hot water at all that we couldn't even shower. No coffee pot but coffee in the room!? Does not make sense!? The concert was great though February 12, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Customer Services really needed here Upon check-in, staff did not have my (paid third-party) reservation so I gave them my credit card to pay for the room. The next day I approach the front desk to address the missing reservation, only for the one and only clerk to walk away as she is watching me walk up to the counter. I wait for her to return and ask my question. Without looking, she responds to my question with her eyes closed that the reservation is not there. I then said OK I will now need to pay for a second night. She looks at me and says that she will run it on my credit card for both nights. Later that evening, I received conifrmation from the third-party reservation with the front desk, however not provided anything in writing. Upon check out, I again confirm that the third party paid for both nights and requested cancellation of my creidt card; they verbally advised me that it has been cancelled and gave me a receipt that the stay was paid in full. Upon my return home, I find that the hotel did in fact charge my credit card for the total visit and also took the third-party reservation payment as well. They said I had to wait 2 days for Monday to discuss with their accountant how I could get a refund. I had to call the Accountant on Monday afternoon since they did not call me back as I had requested; she confirmed the double payment and emailed me a credit which took 5 full days to get to my credit card. I was not a happy camper. February 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful Staff and Accommodations We were greeted by friendly and helpful staff, who inquired about all our needs and preferences, taking the time to explain all of the hotel's facilities & amenities. Room was clean and nicely appointed, and dinner in the restaurant was wonderful. Follow-up email was also appreciated. February 2, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice, clean, and comfortable I am usually suspect of older hotels but this was well maintained and the rooms felt new. Did not eat at the restraunt but staff at front desk were awesome. January 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Value This hotel is right next to the Gish VTA light rail station, which is very convenient. It is also close to the intersection of 101 and 880. There is a good sushi restaurant nearby called Sushi Coast. The hotel has a huge parking lot, and parking is complimentary for IHG Platinum members. The lobby had hot cider and cold citrus flavored water. I also received a raisin cookie at check-in and a bottle of water. I received a complimentary upgrade to a room on the top (9th) floor with a clear view of the San Jose skyline. Although my room was small, there are executive rooms available on the club level, according to the reservation system, which are larger. The corner rooms on the top floor have more windows for obvious reasons. There is a club lounge on the top floor, but there were no lights on or activity going on in the facility. My room had a flat-screen TV with HD channels. The bed had a duvet. You can't open the windows, but there is a wall-mounted environmental control system with built-in motion detector (to deactivate the system when no motion is detected in order to conserve energy). The room had a modern decor, but I wasn't sure how to turn on a couple of the lights in the corners. I liked the availability of bonus point packages. This hotel has a free shuttle to San Jose Airport. I noticed a lot of airline crews staying in the hotel. The hotel has a restaurant and bar in the lobby. There is also a pretty nice fitness center on the lobby level and an outdoor pool January 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Our Stay Staying at the San Jose Airport Hotel was a very memorable experience for my husband and I. Our daughter was staying there as well, but as a recruit for the USCG. It was difficult to know that by staying there we were preparing for a good-bye. However, the comfort that we felt by staying at such a clean and updated hotel made a stressful situation very pleasant. January 11, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor service and bad breakfast I requested a king size bed but given a double bed. The staff promise to change for us the next day but never follow up again. The staff that registered for us is not quite friendly. Most of the hotel around the same area with similar class provide free breakfast and with variety choice. I would expect better in the breakfast option. No microwave in room. January 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service, comfortable room I was greeted by smiling, helpful personnel who took time to make me feel like a special guest. When I called for room service, I was informed that they were quite busy and it would take more time than I hoped. I received an apology and assurance they would speed it up if possible. That conversation made bad news easier to handle. The room was spacious and comfortable. The linens were crisp but cozy. Great experience, all around January 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great experience I chose this hotel because my wife had stayed here twice before and raved about the experience she had here. I cannot say enough about the staff at this hotel. I arrived earlier than the normal check in yet I was greeted heartily and made to feel welcome. I used the fitness facility which was more than adequate. This hotel is much larger than the usual HI hotel, but the service makes it seem as if it is a more intimate hotel. I will stay here again when in the area. January 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great time Had a great time . Got a great room (suite). The staff was awesome and provided great recommendations on places to eat. Will definitely come back when in SJ. January 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Room We stayed overnight at the SJ Airport Holiday Inn between connecting flights. We used Priority Club points for the room. Th staff were excellent and the room was wonderful. Lots of space to lay out luggage, very quiet, comfy king bed. January 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Value and Great Service. This was the second time that my family stayed at this location. The Staff is very helpful and they will do anything to make your staying pleasant. Complementary breakfast was very good for a "continental" type ( I was expecting orange juice out of a box, some toasts and butter.... not at all). The room, overall was clean (729), however the closet's door was not working (we didn't complain, and I'm sure if we did, they would have it fixed). Also, there are some little spots that it seems like they haven't been dusted for a while, but all minor issues. The location is great: close to downtown, places to eat, easy access to freeway, etc. For sure, on our next visit we will be looking at this location first. Thank you for our pleasant staying, and we will be back soon. Happy New Year!! January 3, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great hotel Great hotel and staff Good service and hotel looks great December 31, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by clean and convenient Holiday Inn always guarantees a nice stay. Bedding, cleanliness n restaurant above economy hotel or Dennys. Light rail across street, great sushi n Chinese across street. Quick n easy buffet for breakfast, kids eat free so I did it cuz of this detail with my boy. Love this hotel, will return and I highly recommend it. Better rate than downtown and same quality December 24, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Hotel Nice& convenient hotel. Would recommend to others and definitely will stay there again. December 23, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lovely property and great stay This hotel definitley exceeded my expectations. Everything about the hotel was incredible from the rooms to the lobby to breakfast. Clean hotel, pleasant staff and well maintained common areas. One of the best Holiday Inns I've been to. Thank you!! December 18, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Clean, comfortable & close to transit Our stay was during a weekend event at the SAP Centre. Hotel was full/sold out and the front desk was extremely busy as a result. A bit difficult to get any type of service from there, often did not answer the phone call or were unable to provide the desired serviced as said they were "too busy". However, room was clean, beds comfortable and the fact that transit stop is right out in front of hotel made it a great, affordable choice for our stay. Fitness Centre provided a good choice of equipment and was roomy enough for a floor workout as well. Restaurant was great for breakfast, lobby was nicely laid out for visiting, surfing the net or having a drink with friends. December 14, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice stay, but poor follow-up Since our company's Christmas Party was being held at the hotel, and alcohol was being consumed, we had decided to spend the night. The hotel's lobby was beautiful and check-in was a breeze. The party was great and after it was over, we went up to our room and to bed. This is one of the two problems I encountered. The mattress was rock hard, and extremely uncomfortable. After a few hours, my girlfriend was able to fall asleep, but I think I managed maybe 1 or 2 hours of sleep at best. The next morning as we were packing to leave, my girlfriend discovered that she had left a black wrap in the ballroom that the party was held in. We asked a manager if anyone had turned it in, and although he checked the ballroom, we had no luck. He informed me that he would need to speak to the supervisor who worked the party and would let us know, but we received no phone call. The next morning, I called to see if it had been turned in, and I was informed that I would need to speak with the Housekeeping Manager, and was transferred to his/her office. He/she did not answer, so I left a message asking for a return phone call, but none was received. Called and left messages for the next three days, and as of yet, I still have not received a call. Very disappointing. Kind of puts a damper on my experience with the hotel. December 12, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed and convenient location The bed is comfortable. Location is convenient. even it is near airport, the room is still very quiet. However, the bath tub in room 315 was a little clogged. December 7, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mediocre Service When I checked in the night before, I was not informed the restaurant was closed for renovation (another guest told me on the bus the next morning). When I got to the room, I tried to call the front desk to see about ordering breakfast early in the room the next morning. No one answered after several minutes, so I filled out the door tag and figured that would be good enough--the tag said it would be picked up around midnight or slightly later (it was about ten PM at the time). I filled out the door tag for early breakfast the next morning in my room, and hung it as instructed on my exterior door handle. I got up early to have time to enjoy my breakfast (I am on a special diet, so the "Grab and Go" bag was unsuitable, though appreciated) and did not want to try to hunt down the right foods at the airport the next morning.) I waited fifteen minutes after the time I specified, then checked the door handle, and the tag was still hanging there! I tried to call the front desk, and after several minutes of the phone ringing without answer, I gave up. I hurried and went down stairs hoping to have time to order a quick couple of items before the bus to the airport. In the dining room, there were no servers or staff present, and I eventually realized it was a free buffet, which was nice. However, the coffee pot was empty and there was no water to drink, and after several minutes of looking I could not find anyone to refill the empties. I finally went into the closed door of the kitchen, and hidden around the corner was someone was sitting at a desk, and another girl was gossiping with her. I asked if someone could go refill the coffee, and the standing girl said an ungracious "Yes" and left to do so. To be honest, in 14 years I have never had to hunt down the wait staff hiding in the kitchen, or had a door tag left hanging on the door with no service. All in all, I was very disappointed with this hotel, and hope I am sent to one of the others in our contract next time. December 3, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Free Shuttle to Airport Very convenient, the light rail stops in front of the hotel The price was good, nice renovated rooms and lobby The bar had alot of choices of food, parking was $10.00 versus 45.00 at SF . Front desk staff was Very friendly and help us find few places to go for a drink. Everyone was nice and helpful, we will choose This San Jose hotel again December 3, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Comfortable stay, but technological difficulties The two nights that I stayed, it was great everything worked except for the parking tolls. They never were able to pick up on the ticket that was already paid for, i noticed that I was not the only one experiencing this for the cars that were ahead of me also had to press the telecom. Also, parking fees should just go according to your stay! As a guest i disliked driving into a hotel that stops me to pay or insert a ticket. That was the only criticism i have for this hotel. When you just want to drive in to sleep but having to be held back because of the ticket delay. Everyone who worked there was very helpful, and contributed to my stay. For they were able to provide short cuts to my destinations, and breakfast was set up really nice for guest. I would recommend your stay, unless your having to wait outside to get a ticket, but your vehicle is more secure this way! November 28, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Holiday Inn San Jose Stayed there 11/18-11/20. Check in staff was friendly, and the hotel restaurant was quite good, for dinner and breakfast. Room was fine, the bathroom shower is dated. Main downer was the WiFi, which was completely useless. (Would freeze when using email or uploading a file.) My own cell phone broadband plan saved the day. I would stay here again, especially since San Jose hotels are so hard to come by. November 23, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Property - Great Location - Great Staff I rented two rooms in mid November due to a family emergency. The Staff was very accommodating, the breakfast and dinners were excellent, and the bartenders (especially Ali) made sure our glasses were always full. I believe this is the best hotel in San Jose!! November 21, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Charge the Parking Fee by mistake I had stayed at this hotel quite a few times this year and was confused by their inconsistency service. Sometimes they will give me coupon for free breakfast because I am the priority club member. Next time, when I asked them for breakfast coupon and they told me no such benefit for priority club member. That is perfect fine since I am not a breakfast person. :-) This time, they charged me the $20 parking fee while the statment I received showed zero balance with a credit back for $20 parking fee. I am 100% sure the parking is fee for customers stayed at their hotel. (At least, I got consistent answer from the front desk, each time I visisted for this parking thing.) Now I have to go through the dispute process with credit card company. I will continue to come to this hotel, since it is at very convenient location for my business trip. But do please make sure this mistake won't happen again. November 19, 2013
