This property in Santa Clara was a terrific surprise! The staff were incredibly friendly and polite, the breakfast was heaven! The rooms were really spacious and clean, the bathrooms so lovely, and the bed was EXCELLENT. We ended up booking an extra night because it was so fabulous. Also walking distance to all of our favorite stores and restaurants!

Very nice to have spent several days staying at this hotel which is extremely wonderful for the facility. It's just let me have the feeling of staying at home. It's just near the Target supermarket which is quite helpful to get what you needs.

When no other hotels in the area were available, I stayed here. I am not a fan of the Holiday Inn brand and expected a poor experience. I was delightfully surprised with the hotel. I liked that it was small and easy to navigate. The rooms were updated with a kitchenette. The bed was comfortable, room was spacious, maid service...

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...
