Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Great service! Hotel above average.
Stayed February 19th to 23rd 2014.
- Clean and comfortable rooms.
- Great service.
- Reasonable price.
- Good position (close to everything you might need).
- Noisy due to close major roads.
- Thin walls, had to inform neighbors to be more quite.
- Average variety of breakfast.
Final score and review: good + property. Perfect for business stay. Good WiFi connection (both, reception and speed). Clean and comfort (even a bit noisy). Free parking (despite many other "branded hotels in San Francisco and nearby"). I would recommend it for every business traveler!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by theColorNine Great location and comfortable room
We were very satisfied with our stay at the Holiday Inn Express Santa Clara - Silicon Valley. The hotel is located on the corner of a fairly busy intersection and was easy to get to. At check-in we were greeted by friendly staff and recognized for being an IHG Rewards Club member. Having read reviews prior to our stay, I knew to request a room at the rear of the property away from the traffic noise, and this request was accommodated. The room was spacious and very clean. The beds were extremely comfortable (I'd like one at my home!). When we travel, we look for hotels that offer complimentary breakfast and free Internet, both of which this hotel has. The variety of food at breakfast was better than at many other hotels we've stayed at, and it included several hot selections. Check-out was a breeze.
I have only two very minor criticisms, but these would not prevent me from staying here in the future: 1) The walls are pretty thin. Fortunately we had a room with only one shared wall, but we were easily awakened early in the morning by the guests in the next room having a conversation at what was probably a normal volume; 2) The breakfast area, while moderate in size, can get crowded in a hurry. We went down to breakfast shortly after it opened and it wasn't too bad. When we checked out about an hour later, it was nearly impossible to walk through there to get a cup of coffee.
Pros: Good location; comfortable, clean rooms; friendly staff; free breakfast and Internet; and reasonably priced.
Cons: Thin walls; traffic noise (if you get a room facing the street); can get crowded at breakfast.
Overall, we would stay at this hotel again, and we would recommend it to other travelers.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by j2wt great stay, spoilt by internet connection
the stay has been great. however, the internet connection was poor. first room I had - connection was interrupted very now and then. I had a different room. the connection appeared to be good - until more guests were in the hotel (I believe). I had problem staying connected, and called into meetings. another colleague of mine had the same issue.
