My family and I stayed here in 2007 and again this year. Rooms have not changed at all. We had two rooms for 5 of us one of the rooms had comforters that smelled as if they were peed on and never changed we took the comforters off to find blood and yellow stains on the sheets. The shower in... More

If you are a tennis enthusiast, squash player, swimmer, basketball player, bowler, or want a well-equipped gymnasium, this is an excellent choice in San Jose. The hotel itself is modest but clean. The front desk staff are cheerful, helpful, and speak English well. The rooms facing the street can be noisy, but the interior rooms are peaceful. The included breakfast... More

Very basic hotel rooms. If you can get a good rate, it is a good location. I didn't find the breakfast as basic as the other reviewers. Each day, the eggs are made to your specifications, and there is the standard gallo pinto, plantains, etc. for accompaniment. We didn't try any of the facilities.

Like most reviews, I agree that the hotel has seen better days. The rooms reminded me of the old Hotel 8's but it was clean. No chair or desk in our room (#20) but free wifi. It didn't have any musty / mold smell nor were we bothered by any street noise. We didn't use any of the facilities but... More

Very basic room, old and musty. Very small. Not inspiring it all. Breakfast was very basic too, not much choice, only hot dishes like eggs and rice, no toast or granola. Staff is friendly, but considering the price we think it is not a good value for your money.

The hotel rooms are quite outdated however they have starting renovating the larger ones and will eventually get to the other rooms. You can do better for the money if you are strictly looking for a nice room however this hotel is unique in terms of amenities, and there is plenty to do here. It is a large spread out... More

This hotel has much potential, but lacks so much. I suspect that it has not been updated since it was built. The hotel staff tries to please, but they aren't working with very much. I couldn't recommend this hotel, there must be better options in San Jose.

This is a great place to stay if you like playing tennis or want to be centrally located. It's close to shopping and restaurants. The rooms are clean and the staff is helpful. The breakfast is good. For the price it's an overall good value.

EF Tour - our last night. Rooms were plain but clean, good hot water and excellent mattresses. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Rooms had either a view of the street or a view of a concrete wall. We were given a "bag breakfast" as we left at 4:30 am - that was a waste - a bag of trail mix,... More

I confirm what has been told by others: rooms are fine but outdated, not really big, no king bed, but two individual beds setup as one; good A/C, good mattresses (a little to hard for me, but some people like that kind of mattress), grat staff, great amenities (but too crowded, as expected, on weekends)... I'll just add that walls... More
