I wasn't expecting that much but have been pleasantly surprised. Not only does the free breakfast have real eggs but the hotel is clean and well maintained (Frankly a step up from the Hilton and Marriott properties I've been staying at lately). The only issue is the walls and windows are thin so if "some" noise bothers you it might...

This hotel is located just down the street from the Sharks arena (the purpose for our visit). It is well kept, very clean and the staff are so friendly and helpful. This hotel has been recently updated and is very tastefully decorated. The rooms are spacious and the beds are so comfortable, I could have slept for a week! They...

Good Day CanadianBlondie-1, Go Sharks!!!! I had to say that. Maybe next year...hopefully! I am judging by the your name tag that you may not have been here to see the Sharks win. Since we are out of the running this year, I hope that your team made it to the Stanley Cup! Being that we are just under 2...

The hotel is very close to San Jose Airport. The front desk staff are very helpful especially with flight assistance and information. Room is clean and comfort. Bathroom are large and clean. Breakfast is ok. Easy to get to airport and no worry of traffic jam.

I can't say enough good things about the two nights I recently spent at this hotel. The rooms are spacious, nicely decorated, clean, and well furnished.

We were surprised how comfortable a night we spent here after our long haul flight. It was free with points as well. The room was spacious, the bed comfy and the bathroom was more than adequate with good towels. Staff were cheerful and helpful. A rather nice Mexican restaurant is within a few minutes walk, good when we were trying...

Close to airport. Easy walking to eat. Good breakfast. Friendly staff. Clean rooms. If you are looking for all these things, this hotel will work. Rates a bit steep, but ok. More monitoring at night. Someone getting high at pool and drifted into room.

Nice hotel but a little pricey. Name throw me for a loop. I stayed at hotel because of proximity to airport. Found out at check in that they do not have a shuttle. My fault for not checking when booking but it just seemed logical they would have a shuttle.

Good Day Mr. K., Thank you for taking the time to write a review regarding your stay here with us. We certainly appreciate your time. The name does insinuate that the hotel has a shuttle but we unfortunately do not. Because of high emissions, our hotel does not qualify for a shuttle program. Additionally, the hotel is very small and...

The key necessities of a good stay were there: comfortable bed, good water pressure in shower, and good breakfast with scrambled eggs, sausage and potatoes as well as continental items. Drawbacks were thin walls, so could hear neighbors' TV ( though we couldn't tell if the issue was really that the other guests had their TV cranked up) and a...
