We opted to stay here instead of in a "hotel" and am for the price it was a great stay. We checked in after midnight and the gal in the office was most helpful. If we ever travel that way again, I would stay again.

We just needed a room for the night before our flight out the next day. This hotel was just fine. The room was spacious and clean. The place was quiet and we slept well. Breakfast was your typical one for this tier hotel, but with the nice addition of fresh bananas and hard-boiled eggs. Only one caveat -- we did... More

Stayed there for one whole month for a business trip to SV. Had a very nice room, comfy bed, coffee maker, microwave, fridge and ironing board. Photos on their website are accurate. WiFi internet was surprisingly fast and reliable; definetely a big plus. Also, it was rather quiet despite being on the El Camino Real. Service is also very good... More

Our location is very convenient to being close to the Santa Clara Convention Center and San Jose International Airport along with several large technical companies such as Yahoo, Cisco, MacAfee, Nvidia, making it very easy for business clients to reach their destinations. More

Being a travel agent and having stayed all over the world, my standards can be a little unreasonable. However, I have been looking into value hotels for clients that want to stop over in San Jose.

I usually stay here to "get away". The service is always great the rooms and clean - and the manager Doreen Chavarria is always so pleasant and helpful. Recommend this place to anyone for the comfort service and great location to food and attractions.
