I stayed at the Dunn Inn for one night in February. It was OK for one night – cheap enough. It wasn’t very clean – I saw a lot of hair on the floor and in my bed. The bathroom was clean and looked decent.
The hotel seemed to be almost empty. The area is not that great. I wanted to go for a walk at 11pm and 3 people from the hotel told me not to go because of drug dealers in the area. (I am a medium build 36 year old white male).
If you cannot avoid San Jose this is an OK hotel to go to. Keep in mind that their website gives a false representation – the hotel is a lot shaggier than it seems on the web.
