This may be a very good place to stay for people who are only looking for a convenient place near the airport to spend the night. However, for anyone who wants to see downtown San Jose and/or who does not have their own transportation, it may not be a good choice. This B&B is located in a small nondescript residential neighborhood where we would not have felt comfortable walking at night. There did not appear to be any restaurants, shops, or anything of interest close by. Getting into San Jose would have been expensive, difficult and/or time-consuming since this B&B is located about 20 miles away from the center. We had been booked at this B&B by a travel agency, but when we saw where it was located, we decided to stay at another hotel in the center of the city even though we had to pay for both hotels. We were happy with this decision because we had a whole afternoon to explore the downtown, and there was a good restaurant in the hotel where we stayed.
