Why can I stay at a Holiday Inn elsewhere in the country for $100 and have everything great. I pay $340 here and get a rusty iron that stained my $100 shirt. Also the fitness was small and limited. Bed and TV options were good.

We stayed here while attending the Bay Area Travel Show at the convention center. The location was great (about 10-15 minutes from the show), the front desk staff was very professional and friendly. Our room (one king and one sofa bed) was large enough for 3 adults to stretch out and still have room. The breakfast consisted of eggs, two...

I stay in Silicon Valley often and am glad I found this hotel. The hotel is one of the better values for that area and convenient to the Santa Convention Center. I stayed for two nights in an outside room away from San Thomas Expressway and it was quiet enough for me. The room was large and the desk was...

Front office staff is rude. If you're coming from corporate backed booking then I strongly recommend to avoid this hotel. They show no respect to you when they know that you're not paying for the actual stay.

I needed to stay one near the area and luckily found a room in this hotel. The room was nice and clean, and the staff were friendly. I was also afraid that the it will be noisy being in front of a busy street but they gave me a room at the back which was perfect. Too bad I had...

The hotels near the airport in San Jose or much higher priced for some reason than the ones just a few miles away in Santa Clara.

This Holiday Inn Express is a very nice place to stay while vacationing or visiting in the San Jose Area.

The breakfast selection was very nicely done with an array of hot and cold food,...

I've stayed here a few times. Large & well appointed rooms with good service. But note that the breakfast area is quite small, so choose when you come down carefully. Also, if you get a room close to the highway, you will get some noise at night.

We got a good price online. The front desk staff was friendly. We were given 2 keys apiece--pne opened the door beyond the elevator and the other opened the room. The carpet was stained. The toiletries were from Bath and Body Works! The buffet included a wide variety, even rice. The beds were comfy.
