This was a blind booking without any research. We needed somewhere to stay between Napa Valley and the coast. We also wanted to be able to say "we knew the way to San Jose"!
We wish we hadn't.
The room was clean and comfortable. The site is right next to a busy freeway and therefore most of the rooms were let to truckers. We felt uncomfortable but that was only down to our personal opinion. We had no trouble and there was no noise after 10pm.
We needed a place to sleep that wasn't expensive. That's what we got.
If you're a tourist I'd say keep looking.
