Our party of 3 included a couple and a senior citizen and we had family make reservations for us because the price quoted was affordable and the location was nearby. Upon arrival, we were surprised with a price increase because the management said the price quoted was only for 2 people, even though the room was set up for 3.... More

The rooms were comfortable and clean. Lots of hot water in the shower. We liked the decor and the peace and quiet at night. Close to San Jose and some... More
