I've stayed in may HI Express hotels as the quality is usually very good for the price. This one was certainly nice inside, both the rooms and the central areas. However the area leaves something to be desired and the price was outrageous. I paid three times what I have for other HIE's in more rural areas and felt safer...

This is the Holiday Inn Express we're talking about, so wasn't expecting much. But the rooms are big, all the necessary facilities were provided, the breakfast more than adequate, the wifi is excellent, the beds very comfortable. Everything worked correctly. It's right near Koreatown and various Asian restaurants, happily for me, as these are some of my favorite places to...

The check in staff were friendly and efficient, although not particularly knowledgeable. For example, I wanted some information about the local CalTrain service but they barely knew it existed. Also, later on when, surprisingly given the location of the hotel, I reported a problem with a poor internet service connection, they immediately contacted the Internet Service provider but did not...

Recently reserved two rooms for travel pit stop before weekend leisure trip. Both rooms well kept, clean, fresh, stocked amenities and good desk staff. Rooms well planned with multiple outlets accessed easily for multiple devices, hair appliances, etc. Pleased with in-room choices of "firm" and "soft" pillows. Fairly quiet for being on the El Camino; conveniently located in Santa Clara....

Located near San Jose airport, this Holiday Inn is the perfect example how all Holiday Inn´s should be. Excellent service, clean rooms and facilities, great breakfast room.
