Bellevue, Washington

Ended up here for a conference downtown and all other better hotels nearby outside company rules and it turned out better than expected but still not good value for money but I was paying. Staff/service very good, room clean enough and reasonably comfortable, not best location but close to mall with stores and restaurants and also short drive into downtown...

We were here for a graduation and were not looking for anything fancy, just a place to stay for a couple nights. This Holiday Inn exceeded our expectations in comfort and hospitality, Kopal was very friendly and helpful in seeing that our needs were met, being that we were traveling with my inlaws who are both handicapped. The breakfast is...

Not bad if you are looking to keep to a budget. The property is a motel style. Spacious clean rooms, breakfast typical of a low level hotel. Not the best neighborhood for exploring. Not much of anything to do. Very noisy from the roadway and airport is close so airplanes are coming and going all day and night. For the...

I spent one night here after flying into San Jose on my way to visit family further south. It was easy to get to from the airport. It is an older style "car motel" with all rooms having exterior entrances which doesn't seem as secure as more modern interior entrance rooms. That being said ownership has done what they can...

This hotel provided everything we wanted. The breakfast options are good! Soya milk available and great cereal choices. The WIFI is tops here, really fast. And the management have gone out of their way to help us with some minor requests. All in all, if you need a place out of the way which is worth booking into stay here!!!

Very old property and very small breakfast area. So cramped up. Location is on the highway so more like a motel. I personally didn't like it. Quite shady. Avoid if you can.

I feel like this hotel deserves better than I am giving it, but I want to warn people of some really big shortfalls. I would normally expect a little more out of the Holiday Inn brand, b ut this hotel is kind of in the ghetto and it is obviously a renovated motel. All rooms have outside access, for example....

A really good HIX with large rooms and good amenities according to the HIX standard. Front desk staff are nice. The problem is you have outside doors to the rooms and you have a nice walkway outside the doors under a roof that people can sit down and chat, have a beer and enjoy themselves. This poses a problem for...

Our hotel is 6 miles from Mineta San Jose International Airport and 3 miles from downtown San Jose. Enjoy shopping at Valley Fair Mall or dining at the wide variety of downtown restaurants. Explore the endless rooms of the Winchester Mystery House. Visiting All Tech Companies, the San Jose Convention Center, or the campuses of San Jose State and Santa Clara Universities?
