    We had a very large room with king size bed, jacuzzi tub and kitchen facilities. It was very clean and comfortable. The complimentary hot breakfast was great - eggs, sausages, hash browns, pancakes, etc. Each floor had a large sitting area by the elevator which was very nicely furnished and decorated.The hotel is a five minute walk from the HP Pavillion, and about a fifteen minute walk from downtown San Jose. We enjoyed our stay there, and would definitely stay there again.

    Hotel was clean, comfortable, reasonably priced and conveniently located. The wifi worked flawlessly, the free parking and complimentary breakfast buffet were definite value added items. The Hotel was an excellent value package for a short 2-day stayover while house repairs were in progress.

    The bathroom area needs a privacy barrier/divider curtain to block it off from view from the rest of the room. Put a cable tv channel guide in the room mounted on the wall.

    The jacuzzi tub, free breakfast, and free wifi.

    The darkness of the rooms and fact that you can't open the windows.

    I was unfamilar with the San Jose area, so the hotel was in a good spot in the downtown area. It was nice for a good price.

    The Arena Hotel is a great place for budget-conscious travelers. The rooms are very comfortable and attractive, most have a small kitchenette, the whirlpool tubs are awesome, and the breakfast is ample. I always have my out of town friends stay there.

    We loved the fact that we could walk to the HP Pavilion. It was about a 6 minute walk. The room was very spacious and I loved the jacuzzi tub!

    The size and cleanliness of the room and the size and function of the jacuzzi tub were more than expected,, even though the tub needed replacement due to wear and tear. The breakfast room and complimentary breakfast was very nice and good, respectively. It was a good value for the money.

    The noise from the person above walking all over his or her room at midnight, 1am and 6:30 am on was ridiculously loud. There didn't appear to be any internet access. The television selections were limited.

    I picked the hotel because of a recommendation. The price was a lot lower, $69, and the location is perfect for hp pavilion. I'll live with the new higher rate because of the location and the friendly staff.

    My fiance and I went to a San Jose Hockey game and the location to the Arena Hotel was fabulous! I would recommended it to anyone going to an event at the hp Pavilion! I also very much liked the room and the bathtub was amazing!! I actually didn't know that the jacuzzi tub was included and it was a wonderful surprise!

    My stay at the hotel was very good, but there were two minor complaints that I would make. When I checked into the hotel there was only one woman manning the front desk and I got the impression that she was quite swamped. She was answering the phones and checking me in at the same time (she actually forgot to give me back my credit card because she was so busy), also there was a line behind me too. I do not blame the front desk person at all, I just think she needed some more help. The other thing were that the pillows were extremely uncomfortable to sleep on for both me or my fiance. I am giving both of these complaints just as helpful criticism, I really loved staying at the hotel as a whole!

    The rooms are spacious and have a old world charm, the staff is very polite and helpful! This hotel gives a ton of little conveniences like breakfast, Internet over Wifi; Complimentary! I don't know why places like the Hilton/Marriot charge separately for something as basic as internet... I would really recommend the Arena as its really close to the Cal-train station and has this very old world charm thats comforting...

    We like staying at the Arena Hotel because of the ease of walking to the hp for the Sharks Games.

    We always enjoy ourselves, but this time (Thurs eve-12/14) our room faced the front of the hotel & until 1am we could hear very loud people in the front parking area. It was hard to go to sleep, but it will not stop us from coming again. Thank you

    Gets us close to the hp Pavillion for the Sharks games, plus my girlfriend and I are making a tradition out of staying at the Arena at least twice each hockey season. It's a wonderful little place for the money!
