“pleasant stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2012

I had a pleasant stay at this Holiday Inn Express. I was traveling for business and found the rooms very comfortable. I usually have trouble sleeping in hotel beds, but these were extremely comfortable. The breakfast was really good. Plenty of options. The workout room lacked a little. It had a couple of treadmills and a bike and an eliptical, which was fine for cardio, but the weights were missing a few of the add-ons to do some of the exercises so I was limited. And there are no free weights. The pool was warmer than the hot tub, but it was chilly when I visited the hotel so I did not use either of those. Overall, the hotel was better than I expected it to be. The location was perfect for where I needed to be. The front desk was helpful in answering questions and very polite. The lobby and the rooms were very clean.

We chose this hotel because it was close to Winchester Mystery House, and they had a package deal. Very economical; the Winchester tickets were basically free. I called ahead and asked if we could pick up the tickets before our room was ready. When we got there, four hours before 3 pm check-in time, the clerk, Jasmin, had the tickets ready as well as our room! She also gave us printed directions to Winchester. The room was clean, and had everything we needed, including an iPod, a refrigerator, small individual coffeemaker, even a laptop tray. The bed was clean and comfortable and the room spacious, with a small sitting area. The shower/bath was great and I loved the lotion -- smelled like cinnamon. Jasmin was polite and conscientious. I fell and hurt my knee and she also had some anti-bacterial ointment. The hot breakfast was delicious with a lot of variety. Cool coffee creamer flavors. Even with the rainy weather, we had a good time. No complaints at all!

It is my first trip to Santa Clara and my first stay in Holiday Inn. I do feel warm welcome although the weather is a chill. The room and toilet is absoluete clean and you have no worry to use them. The environment is safe as they allow guess access with the card. Should you consider looking for accomodation in Santa Clara, I would like to recommend this one for you.

Room Tip: Please book the shuttle service in the counter when your logistic to other destination is known.

(+) good location, big rooms, clean and pleasent. good price
(-) poor breakfest, a bit noisy (between 2 main roads)

Room Tip: take a room facing the pool (inner side), not the street - quite noisy.
