I booked it online and didn't expect much for the price but I was very reserved upon my arrival. After a long ride from Yosemite NP we finally found the motel around midnight. The neighbourhood seemed to be notorious. There was a police officer who was at the gate and there were random people standing around the place. Honestly, I... More

This is not a 5-star hotel. But let's be serious: You didn't really think you were going to get a 5-, 4-, 3-, or even 2-star hotel for $60/night during the week in Silicon Valley, did you? If you did, welcome to San Jose -- heart of the tech industry, where hotels are 4x more expensive during the week. EZ-8... More

No free Wi-Fi, no breakfast and no room service. This was the only motel of the 10 we stayed in where I had to get extra towels from the reception desk. All other places delivered them to my room. Just spend an extra $10 at a better place and get free Wi-Fi and breakfast.

Only place with a room available in town. It was pretty gross. I wouldn't recommend staying here if at all possible. Very thin walls; heard way too much of other peoples' activities... :-/ they don't provide shampoo, conditioners, hair dryers or coffee makers. Towles were old, water pressure low, beds hard. Cigarette holes everywhere.

We pulled up here after making a Priceline reservation (note: complain to Priceline). The staff was pleasant enough but giving cash (only accepted because the credit card machine was "broken") through a thick glass window is sketchy. There were several sketchy people hanging about looking for a room as well. We thankfully had made reservations at the OTHER E Z... More

Had to spent my last two nights here in San Jose before flying back to Amsterdam. This was my place of choice, but no hotel had rooms available in San Jose and around. Room was on the ground floor. Neighbor's above jumped up and down the whole night... terrible. Ceiling is worn off, poor interior. Only if you have nowhere... More

We needed a place to stay on a below 60 night budget,which is nearly impossible and not have a dirty buggy room. We have stayed in the area many times and have actually passed by this hotel just because of the way and location it is in. However on this trip we needed something. We showed up at about 6pm...
