Stayed here as a transitional point upon arrival in San Jose on the advice of the cab driver we hired at the airport. He told us it was a decent place to stay near the city center.
The hotel itsself is old and dated but outside appearance was good. The staff was friendly and very helpful, especially Damien who was full of good advice. The rooms however, were some what dirty, there was a problem with the shower and in the first room I had the toilet did not work so I was moved to another room. The lighting was very dark, the cable service was poor for the TV and TV itself was very old, at least 15-20 years old. Breakfast here is a joke, consisting of coffee, rice and beans and two slices of toast...a very scant breakfast to say the least. This place is severely over priced even in the low season..paid $55.00 a night. The location, while near the city center is less than desirable, just down the street about 50 yards away is a sleasy bar and across the street and a half block up the next street is a lesbian bar which we accidently stumbled into before realizing we had done so. Also was approached on the same street by a few trannys. Not the best value in San Jose.
