      Very close to public transportation and 7/11 nearby.

      Continental Breakfast is not good. Wifi does not work when too many people staying at the hotel. It is a motel rather than a Hotel.

      Ease of access to city via light railway, helpful friendly staff

      The room had good lighting and large - quite comfortable. Also, there were many nice restaurants very close for dinner.

      Nothing really. It was quiet there thou.

      Every dirty carpet, little roaches, non functioning fridge, did not get the two extra pillows we requested, and there was spider weds on the ceiling. Never going back.

      As a stop-over on our way from Honolulu -to- Wichita, it was just fine. Everything was fine, the bed(s) need a mattres topper, but when your exausted, a rock quarry is ok. Coffee was good, breakfast snacks need a little up-grade.

      Location for my business needs was excellent. Next to a Denny's for breakfast was also convenient. Location to the airport was also a definite plus.

      WiFi was extremely slow. The continental breakfast does not work for those who prefer a low-carb eating regime.

      I wouldn't stay ther again

      It was a nice little hotel that was good quality for the price. Danny was extremely friendly and helpful during the entire stay. If you need a place to stay close to San Jose airport and are trying not to spend too much cash this is the place for you.

      Good price

      Hair dryer did not work. Toilet did not work well, hard to flush and water ran a long time.

      Close to airport. Price.

      Noisy. I needed a cab and desk person told me I had to reserve one hours in advance. Went to hotel down 1st st and they got me one in 10 mins.

      The staff was quite good - they were flexible and polite - very helpful. The location was great - very close to the airport but quiet- easy to get to - and easy to get to restaurants, etc. It was reasonably priced and had a decent internet connection so that I could get work done. Coffee and tea were always available. Pool was clean and laundry facility was operational. Non smoking room was smoke free.

      slightly outdated - furnishing and linens could be updated to improve

    • Single

      The staff/owner has very nice and pleasant.

      The place had a very cheap motel feel. I was a little concerned because it also seemed like it was not in the most desireable area (the word, sketchy comes to mind). It served its purpose but had I known in advance, I think I would've paid a little more and stayed in a larger, more well-known chain hotel.

      I was disapointed,it doesnt look as good as in the pictures, I dont know why this hotel has 2 stars, it is more like a motel than anything else.the only things they have is a pool and a tiny jacuzzi in an area that is not even appealing to use. it looks old, the bathroom was not working really properly and it was for sure far less than what I expected.At least it was clean and the room size ok,but for the same price it is possible to book a better hotel nearby.

      The desk clerk was very efficient and was helpful with any concerns I had.

      The main light was blown out so I had to feel around my room for other light switches. The phone was also switched off.Maintenance came by and fixed issues as I was leaving. I did get a discount for my stay, however.
