The room smelt horriable and our bed had change on it when we got there, so they hadnt changed the bedding,... More

This was not a good experience at all. this hotel was crawling with people all up to no good. on both sides of my room I had people yelling screaming and fighting all night long. at 2:30 in the morning 4 people tried to kick in the door and we're arguing very loudly. This is a very unsafe hotel and... More

This motel should receive a negative rating only there is no option to do that! Arrived late after a long day and the room was old and scruffy, but we thought "what the heck, we just need a good nights sleep and a hot shower and we will be on our way." Well those were the two things we DIDNT... More

With San Jose's accommodation prices being on a rather high level, E-Z8 is the obvious choice for the budget traveler who just wants to freshen up and have a place to rest their head for a night. On top of that, you get free parking, a pool, a Jacuzzi and laundry facilities. If you need an iron, you can get... More

A terrible room on the road - we had to run the air conditioning which was very loud to drown out the t.v. next door. There were a lot of people hanging around when we arrived and it made us feel uncomfortable. Laundry services were good. We had to ask for iron and ironing board (which was a desk top... More

Pleasant staff, on Light Rail line. Can take free transportation from airport to within two blocks of hotel.. Matrix casino with great food 2 blocks away. Fast food places including McD (next door) . Pool not available. Good tv. Could be updated but good for price and location.

I stayed here with my kids because it was low cost & the only motel available with 2 beds at the time. But I will never stay here again. No one has respect to be quiet at certain times of the night or at 3am. I called the front desk & complained. But there still not quiet. But they stopped... More

Horrible night's stay; would have left at midnight but were afraid to leave our room until daylight. Avoid this place at all costs unless you are looking to score some dope or spend an hour with a working girl!

This is an older, dive motel that should be used only in a dire emergency. Rate was cheap but everything about the motel was far below a 2-star standard. No shampoo in the rooms; front desk said "no shampoo, soap only." That should say it all. Internet faded in and out. Not reliable at all.
