Everyone is very friendly from the front desk to the security to the local girls. However, know the currency exchange! The first time I went there I was unsure and I was told by a local girl that the bartendress at The Blue Marlin charged me double of what my tab was. Pay with local cash and do not run a tab. Pay as you go. Other thanthat...have a ball!

I would stay here again. Clean and very good value. Staff was very helpful and the location was close to many restaurants and the beach was not far at all. I plan to go back in a few months and will book here again.

Since my first review, I have visited the Del Ray several times. I now issue a warning. Most of the girls have developed into ripoff artists. Even my old standbys (highly professional woman supporting families) have said so. The current attitude and play is for the girls to make endless promises at reasonable prices and then forget about all that when they get to your room and then bail because they want more money to even stay! So pick your lady very carefully! In the bar their sales pitch is fun and entertaining. However, if she is very beautiful and to good to be true - she is! You will be ripped off. There are still great honest hard working ladies there, but it’s always a coin toss. The best ones are the part timers looking for extra income to support families. Regardless, the place is still really safe, excellent security, clean rooms, great air conditioning and very reasonable room prices if you book directly with motel - not (any)web booking service. If you feel totally ripped off for the services provided, you should call security. I did. I still give the place 4 stars because it just a riot to be surrounded by beautiful woman that want to get you naked. Just know there is no way you won’t get ripped off sooner than later.

This is a really good place to stay if you want to stay in downtown San Jose. The building is old and I wish that they would upgrade their rooms (carpet is old and outdated, beds are not comfy, toilet is right in front of the sink, and the bathrooms are small. I didn't have any dresser for clothes and the in room safe was not that "safe" (connected only to a small shelf)). Then why stay here? They have great bars and a really good restaurant right next door. They have any type of woman you want to meet. The staff that works there is really great and speak very good English. Only go here if you want to meet women. If you want a 5 star hotel, then don't stay here.

This hotel is a great place to stay in San Jose. It has clean rooms, a helpful staff, and a great nightlife. Plenty of things to do, but not a great place to take kids. (Read adults only.) Easy access to other parts of the country with instruction on best ways to travel..
