Run down and poor customer aercive
Reviewed 1 week ago

Not impressed with this hotel. The reception at check in was not friendly and unhelpful. I was charged more than my reservation and when I asked why she said “I don’t know, extra charges” when I said that I won’t accept to pay for extra charges if they can’t tell me what it is for, she then simply agreed to remove it. It was a small amount, but please check your reservation amount when you check in to be sure it matches up. Reception didn’t explain breakfast location or hours and was unhelpful or seemed annoyed at questions pertaining to hotel ammenities. Indoor pool is actually inside a gold’s gym and you will need to walk through the whole gym with everyone staring uncomfortably. When we got there, we were told there was a class and the pool wouldn’t be available for another hour. I ordered room service pizza with caramelized onions, which is a choice on the menu, and my pizza came with pickled onions instead. Pretty gross to me. The hotel itself was super run down, concrete walls, rooms with no natural light. It’s about a 20 minute walk to downtown San Jose. Don’t waste your money staying here.

Not super clean but amazing service

There was a long wait at an understaffed lobby when we checked in. We got in late and there were 3 people at the desk, but they all seemed occupied with a single check in for some time. Our king suite came with a couple of small towels and only a single bath robe. Room service was slow but friendly. We checked out very early and had a cab ready for us.

Perfect for a night in San Jose

We started our two week tour at this hotel and it was very nice. Lobby area, pool area and rooms were all very clean. The people at check are n were very nice and helpful. You can walk to a square in Downtown San Jose in the day which we did.
They have a nice pool and hot tub but the water is chilly in both. But it was pleasant to sit in the pool area.
We also had drinks and dinner in the bar area An Imperial beer, a tequila sunrise and chicken fingers. All were very good.
This is a good place to stay before and after your trip.

Clean, Convenient and Set up for Conferences

This was my second time to participate in a conference at this hotel. This sprawling hotel is very clean, well managed, convenient for local residents and set up for groups large or small. I was once again pleased with the accommodations, food and service.
