Unfortunately, we had to stay in San Jose near Super Bowl time and the prices at all the hotels in the area were were scandalously doubled. We did find a room at this Motel 6 at the Convention Center for a relatively good price and it was quite acceptable. The room was Hotel 6 size (small) but comfortable and clean.

Stayed here for 2 nights to catch a show, worked 1 day from hotel. Cons: Rooms are "updated" cheap vinyl flooring that make lots of noise when you walk. Shower has terrible water pressure, could barely rinse my hair after about 5 minutes standing under shower and I have above the shoulder length hair. Walls are thin and you hear... More

All I can tell you is my friend booked a room far in advance at this motel because we were coming to a conference in San Jose. We went straight to the conference because we were running late. Before leaving the conference at around 9:45pm, I called this Motel 6 to confirm our room. When we got to the Motel... More

Stayed there with some friends for a longer time. The room was always cleaned very good. Beds are comfortable, only the bathroom could be a bit newer than it is. The hotel service was very friendly and good. Only the WiFi connection was pretty slow, so we needed to buy a cable for connecting laptops.

This is the only hotel I've ever had to gather my belongings and leave without staying the night and sacrificing the money spent. Reception staff couldn't have been nicer but large groups of males were drinking and shouting outside my room in the evening and eventually I had to give up and leave, they weren't unpleasant or intimidating just really...

This Motel 6 was a bit below average. The front desk employee was courteous to us. The room was excellent with a modern TV and microwave and refrigerator. The room was flawless except don't plan on taking a bath. The bath was at an awful angle and was extremely uncomfortable. The pool was completely filthy. There were leaves and random... More

Stayed here for one night during the convention on 6/1/2015. Room was kept clean and noise level was kept low. There are many restaurants and market around the motel which was a definite plus. Only few miles away from downtown San Jose. I would recommend this place.

Ok, I normally stay in a Hampton inn, Fairfield inn, but this was the right rate for this trip. It was actually pretty good considering double the room rates for other hotels I would consider. Except that there was no alarm clock, or hair dryer, or shampoo, the room was very comfortable , safe and the bed was nice.

I looked for a hotel that is near the San Jose Convention Center and the SAP center and found Motel 6. I've heard bad things in the past about the chain of motels and came with some doubt, but it quickly faded. The room was clean, the bad was comfortable and the sheets and towels were changed daily. The room... More
