    I liked the bed and especially the pillows. They were very fluffy and firm, just right. The maids were friendly also

    I appreciate the fact that the staff never enter my room, and I leave with everything I came with.

    The wall outlets are "always" occupied, I always need to bring an extra power strip if I need to plug-in cell charger and laptop. The rooms are filthy usually, frequently wall outlets are dead, lightbulbs dead and/or missing, stains everywhere (carpet,chairs,sheets,bedspread...), Wi-fi only sporadically available, Credit card payments only! Caravelle refuses to accept cash, argumentive reception staff.....

    It is a very good place to stay before and after a plane flight, They provide transportation to and from the airport and I can park my car there. It is not a fancy place, but provides everything I need for a comfortable stay. People who insist on upscale accommodations might not like it.

    What did I like? The location and nothing else.

    Not sure if I will have enough room, but I'll give it a try. 1. Staff was rude. 2. Holes in bathroom wall 3. No hot water 4. Had air conditioner, but it didn't work 5. Towel racks were ready to fall 6. Bathroom door handle loose and ready to fall off 7.No hair dryer 8. No iron in room, had to go to front desk and check one out. 9. Had trouble with internet service. 10. poor lighting in room, one fixture had two lights burned out 11. TV old and it didn't matter what channel you had it on. It had static lines 12. cluttered wiring under desk 13. carpet was filthy 14. outlets worn and cellphone chargers or whatever you wanted to plug in wouldn't stay plugged in I wouldn't stay there again, nor would I recommend it to anyone. It was without a doubt the most terrible place I have ever stayed at.

    The price.

    Lack of towels in the bathroom and bathtub drain was clogged. Also, the carpet is so dirty it made my white socks turn dark after walking around the room.

    It was conveniently located near the airport. I enjoyed the breakfast, and the light rail station across the street. It was a good central point for our day trips to Monterey and Santa Cruz and to sites around San Jose.

    The air conditioning unit had useless loovers -- it would blow the air up into the drapes which limited privacy. Also, the electrical outlet in the bathroom did not work, so I just used my curling iron elsewhere in the room.

    It was close to the airport.

    I was disappointed becuase I was misinformed about the air port shuttle and the clerk was less than friendly.

    The poor customer services. First the staff tried to charge me $10.00 for my young two girls and I asked why and she said because we charge extra for children; but, I will charge you only $5.00 for each. When I checked out from $134.00 that I was supposed to pay according to the internet rates I end up paying $174.00. The hot tub was cold because according to the office assistant that's how they keep it. Swimming pool is closed after sunset. Only four towels so we could ask for any more. No iron, hair drying is old. Paid too much money for poor service.
