    The property is in a great spot. Close to restaurants and fast food. We flew in from Canada and it was a perfect starting point

    We stayed here at the beginning and end of our trip. Convenient to the airport and in a very nice neighbourhood. Clean, comfortable, quiet and nice open-air spot to eat included breakfast.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    The beds were quite comfortable and it was nice that there was two different firmness of pillow to choose from, but the staff wasn't very friendly, no one used the pool area because it was quite drab looking and there was always bird poop on the chairs. Actually the only thing that did use the pool was the birds. The other thing is that this hotel is in a residential/ industrial area. Not much around. You need to cab it everywhere.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    I stayed here the night before departing San Jose as I wanted to b e closer to the airport, but not spend a small fortune for a 12 hour stay. This is a clean and modern hotel with nice rooms and very friendly staff. As an Express it's a bit bare bones (no restaurant, minibar, airport shuttle, or concierge) but it's priced well and the value is excellent compared to other options. There are plenty of restaurants around, and an Uber to the airport was only $14 USD. Jose at the front desk was very friendly and helpful.
