The motel is on a busy street, out room was against the street & the noise wasn't bad. The room was nicer than I expected from the pictures. I could only get a room with a king size bed, so we brought a cot for my son & there was plenty of room. The breakfast room was small, but it... More

Fred at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very spacious; we had two double beds, a kitchen sink, fridge, and a very large and clean bathroom. I was very impressed with the cleanliness and I would stay here again the next time in san jose. Good value and good location. Thanks so much!

Traveled by car. In town for business. Arrived a bit early for check-in, called motel and was greeted by the kindest, most professional gentleman. He stated we could check in early. We appreciated that, since our event started before the regular check-in time, and if we had not been able to settle into our room prior, it would have been... More

Good position, 15 minutes away from downtown San Jose (by bus). Big rooms, clean, with all you can need. Many power plugs. Free WiFi. The staff was polite and helpful. I didn't have the opportunity to notice anything about the neighborhoods, cause I have been out for all the days of my stay. Very close to the airport too (Mineta... More

After reading some of the prior comments I was a little worried about what the room would be like. We had a very difficult time finding a room in San Jose on the night that we wanted because we waited too long to book. However, I was pleasantly surprised that our room was spacious, the carpet looked relatively new, the... More

I usually read a lot of reviews before I pick a hotel but I didn't see anything about how this hotel was in a bad part of the town. As we were driving to the hotel, my mother in law who was in another vehicle behind us decided to turn right instead of following us. We ended up turning into... More

Knowing I would not have a car during two nights in San Jose, I was attracted to the notion that this place, while a little more expensive than some, is on the Caltrain line, as I was coming through town on Amtrak. It is indeed on the line, but only for very limited early morning and night stops on WEEKDAYS,... More

My daughter and I spent 10 nights at this Inn. The Inn is located near the town centre which is ideal. Rooms were clean and well decorated. The Staff were friendly and helpful. McDonalds, KFC, Burger King, Taco Bell, Steak House, next door Café all within a short drive. It was a pleasure to stay there.
