      Historical Traveler Reviews Arena Hotel San Jose

      Great place for a stay

      from

      We stopped here thinking it would be a mediocre hotel, but the night reception guy was very profession and courteous. The two t.v.'s and jacuzzi were great. My husband wanted to stay longer. The internet access was great and worked well. I used the laundry and ice machines all with no problems. The morning buffett was average, but it is included in the price of your stay. There were lots of choices from eggs to cereal and fruit. We were able to get a late check out without any problems and enjoyed our stay overall there. The rooms were clean and tidy when we arrived as well. I would stay again in a heartbeat.

      Perfect location for Arena Venues

      from

      It is perfect for the quick Stay for a concert I was at U2 this last Saturday hotel was absolutely Perfect .. nice people also...do NOT worry about booking this place!!!!!!

      Mediocre at best

      from

      I stayed at the Arena ($99 a night) based on the recommendation of a friend. The room was not completely awful, but a little dark, dreary, unclean, and the furnishings & linens were quite worn and needed to be replaced. The advertised "jacuzzi" was a jetted bathtub big enough for one person. Not such a bad thing, except it didn't work. The food in the evening was pretty mediocre, and that's being generous. For a hotel in the same price range, I'd rather stay at the Adlon and have an incredible meal and a beautiful, spacious, crisp & clean room. The bottom line is the Arena is overpriced for what you get. If you're on a tight budget, you'd do better to pay $70 for a room elsewhere that would probably be nicer and buy yourself a much better meal.

      All Wonderful at the Arena Hotel

      from

      I've stayed at the Arena Hotel many times and it is the only hotel I will stay at when I am in Silicon Valley. I have found all of the complimentary dinners and complimentary breakfasts to be top notch. Where else can you stay where you get free dinner AND breakfast? The rooms are always great, clean, and the staff is the true example of professionalism. Keep up the great work Arena Hotel and I'll be seeing you soon.

      THEY TOOK ADVANTAGE OF MY CREDIT CARD!!!!

      from

      This hotel was so unprofessional! They made an authorized charge of $400.00, blaming me for a leak in the ceiling. There plumbing was to blame, if it was not me who they blamed, it would have been the next person to occupy the room. In addition, they did not notify me, not prior to the charge, and not after the charge. I even attempted to solve it by meeting with the Relief Manager and the DM, they simply told me they did not have my contact number on file. The procedures they took to charge my card were UNAUTHORIZED and UNPROFESSIONAL. The only thing that was a positive was their complimentary dinner of microwaved hamburger patties! Yummy, right?

      A GrEaT PlAcE tO StAy

      from

      I have stayed in many hotels/motels within the state and this is by far one of my very favorite places to stay. This hotel is consistently clean, the beds are big and very comfortable and the people who work there are always very pleasant. You cant beat the price of the room that includes your dinner and breakfast too. About the only thing this place does not have is a swimming pool which I could do without anyday as the inside bathtub jaccuzi is my favorite. If you are looking for a place to stay in San Jose California...this is the place to stay!

      Fantastic value

      from

      The Arena hotel is budget lodging by price but is one of the best hotels I have stayed in recently (and there have been a lot of them). I haven't reviewed a hotel online previously, but I enjoyed my stay there so much I felt compelled to do so. The Arena offers free breakfast AND dinner---real meals, which were quite tasty and filling. There's a jacuzzi in most of the rooms, the grounds and the lobby are well-kept and in great shape, and the room was quiet and well appointed. It's also only minutes from the center of San Jose. I will definitely make a point of staying there again next time I'm in the area.

      Nice place to stay

      from

      I have stayed at The Arena on numerous occassions. I like the free breakfast buffet and the proximaty to downtown and the Shark Tank. I have stayed on week days and week ends, week ends do have a tendancy to bring out the partiers.

      Quite good for the price

      from

      It is a lot better on the inside than it looks on the outside. The courtyard is nice, as is the breakfast.

      Rooms are stangely large, and come with a huge jacuzzi (what were they thinking). Other than these oddities, it is a nice hotel.

      Good beds, clean, parking, and the people are nice.

      Good for the price <$100

      Cheers,

      Arena Hotel, San Jose

      from

      Nice hotel. All rooms have a jacuzzi, and they're quite roomy and soundproof. The hotel is very close to the Sports Arena (within walking distance). Breakfast is included in all rates (I think), and there's a large selection of stuff to eat, not just cereal, but hot goods too.

      The weekend crowds can get a bit rowdy though, with gangbanger types in the parking lot and just "hanging out".

      We headed out from out campsite bright and early for a peaceful hike in Yosemite. Bryan dropped us off at glacier point which is pretty much on top of a mountain so our hike could be mostly downhill. It was a beautiful trail, when we reached the bottom of the valley we found a sweet little mountain river with smooth rocks around it perfect for relaxing on! After that the trail headed back up the valley so a lot of uphill and huffing and puffing D: the view from the top ...
