My wife and I stayed here 3 nights in March and would definitely return. The rooms are clean and affordable. Our first night we stayed in room 2 and found it to be very noisy as it is right on the street and on the hotel's two gated parking spots. The other two nights we got a different room and had no problem with noise. Downtown is about a twelve-minute walk. Have someone point you in the right direction, as it is easy to get turned around (the street names in SJ are rarely posted at intersections). The neighborhood has seen better days but is hardly threatening. Take reasonable precautions when out at night. If you arrive late on a Sunday, as we did, you can get some 7/11-style snacks and staples at the gas station three blocks away. We loved everything about our stay at this hotel. The breakfast is fantastic and the computer terminals are a convenience that you won't find at the more expensive hotels. The staff is courteous and professional. It is apparent that this spacious budget hotel is someone's labor of love. I would also add that the hotel seems to attract low-key and family-oriented international travellers (Americans included) who respect quiet hours. Lastly, if you encounter a cab driver who claims not to know the hotel, find another cab, as the hotel bears the name the neighborhood and is well known to locals.
