Good position, 15 minutes away from downtown San Jose (by bus). Big rooms, clean, with all you can need. Many power plugs. Free WiFi. The staff was polite and helpful. I didn't have the opportunity to notice anything about the neighborhoods, cause I have been out for all the days of my stay. Very close to the airport too (Mineta...

After reading some of the prior comments I was a little worried about what the room would be like. We had a very difficult time finding a room in San Jose on the night that we wanted because we waited too long to book. However, I was pleasantly surprised that our room was spacious, the carpet looked relatively new, the...

I usually read a lot of reviews before I pick a hotel but I didn't see anything about how this hotel was in a bad part of the town. As we were driving to the hotel, my mother in law who was in another vehicle behind us decided to turn right instead of following us. We ended up turning into...

Knowing I would not have a car during two nights in San Jose, I was attracted to the notion that this place, while a little more expensive than some, is on the Caltrain line, as I was coming through town on Amtrak. It is indeed on the line, but only for very limited early morning and night stops on WEEKDAYS,...

My daughter and I spent 10 nights at this Inn. The Inn is located near the town centre which is ideal. Rooms were clean and well decorated. The Staff were friendly and helpful. McDonalds, KFC, Burger King, Taco Bell, Steak House, next door Café all within a short drive. It was a pleasure to stay there.

We regret your experience. There are a few buildings in the area that are now closed due to financial reasons. They are being redeveloped into elite nursing homes and retail marts. These are all circumstances out of our control. This is a haphazard review of our well established hotel.
