I had to go to San Jose for a funeral and needed to find a place for just an overnight stay. I liked the reviews, and Trip Advisor gave me a cheap rate. For the most part, or at least from my brief experience, they were accurate but...
I had a room on the first floor and heard a lot of noise from the lobby and was told I was fortunate the pool was closed because it would also have been really noisy outside my window. Apparently, the room location was the reason for the cheaper rate.
At midnight I was woken up by a TV that was so loud, I thought the set in my room had somehow turned itself on. It hadn't though. The sound was coming from the room next door, and it was more that the sound was just flowing through the locked adjoining door than being played at a volume you'd get at a movie theater. I called the desk and a few minutes later heard the phone ring next door and the fellow there saying, "Yeah, I'll turn it down," and he did. (That I could hear him so clearly was also a bit disturbing.)
If that kind of thing doesn't bother you, it is a fine place. I loved the room with the Etch-a-Sketch, Rubik's Cube and Tootsie rolls. The bathroom was large (shower pressure not great though) and the fellow behind the desk was exceedingly pleasant and helpful.
