This motel has definitely seen better days. My room smelled musty, and the windows did a terrible job of keeping out traffic noise. However, the room was clean, and the location was only about 1.5 miles from the convention center. It is adjacent to Wendy's, and Denny's, Starbucks, Walmart, and Togo's are across the street. Other reviewers are correct in... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review! We apologize for the roadside noise on busy Monterey Road. If you had told us about the noise , we could have moved you to a room away from the road. We are so glad to hear that our prime location offered convenience during your stay. Please come back again. More

Worst experience ever... Nasty sink, room smelled like nightclub, old bathrooms, towels and carpets. Asked to change rooms during a 4 day stay and never got the slightest proof of interest from the receptionist to do so. TV had to be set up twice. Rates said breakfast included, theres not even a vending machine with power bars or cereal dispensers... More

The room was comfortable, and definitely suited our needs. It's in a quiet and tucked-away spot, which is nice when you need a good night's sleep and have a lot to do the next day. Not fancy, but if you need a clean, safe place to stay in the heart of the city, staying here is a good bet for... More

$50 additional for an extra bed turns into $65. Room has a bad smell. Unpleasant experience overall. Decide if this is your best value. I can stay at Hyatt Regency for less money. I drove two hundred miles for this. Safe is already locked and I don't have the code to open it. I am leaving in the morning ASAP.

We stayed for a week or so here, and it was quiet and safe. Very close to Walmart, Denny's, and Wendy's, which is very convenient for us. Bedding was comfortable and clean, we use the sofa as an extension of the bed so its can fit us and two kids under 3.

Comfortable and affordable at the last minute. Didn't realize that Hotels in the area jump in price during the week for all the techie travelers. This hotel was comfortable, even without all the amenities of the higher end ones.

Rita was very helpful after we had problems with booking, got everything fixed and took good care of us. Next morning we drove to Santa Cruz for the day, easy drive on HWY 17 from hotel.

I stayed with a colleague in a twin room for a conference at the Fairmont in downtown San Jose. The best-value inn was the best budget hotel that we could book through our corporate travel service.

I knew we wouldn't have the amenities of a large chain hotel, but our experience was very good. Room was clean, not dingy or tired looking. It was large enough with all the in-room amenities one hopes for: TV, hair dryer, coffee maker, safe, iron, fridge and even microwave. Supermarket and Starbucks across the street. We packed 4 people into... More

Stayed with a friend for two nights while in town (in nearby Santa Clara,CA) for Wrestlemania 31. Cheapest place somewhat near downtown (and with access to buses that take you to the downtown core, key for faraway leisure tourists in a city without a ton of public transit) that we could find for the two nights. Despite a generic facade,... More
