This is one of the cheapest places on 1st St so you get what you pay for there. High price but very cheap rooms. Had some problems with my card for the 2nd day so moved nearby to another place. Paid about $40 more but what an improvement. Place looks like its falling apart. Parking lot fills up fast but... More

We visited San Jose from the UK for a hockey game (go sharks!) and stayed in the EZ 8 motel. I have to say I'm a little confused about the negative reviews the EZ 8 motel has received from other users. It was by far the cheapest hotel in the area. We had previously only experienced motels through depictions on... More

I had a reservation, requesting ground floor. When I checked in, I was told that they had just rented the last ground floor room. I was put on the second floor. No elevator. The TV didn't work, and I was told that there was no way to fix it tonight. There were no shampoo's. The walls were thin, and I... More

This is a very unsafe hotel and... More

This motel should receive a negative rating only there is no option to do that! Arrived late after a long day and the room was old and scruffy, but we thought "what the heck, we just need a good nights sleep and a hot shower and we will be on our way." Well those were the two things we DIDNT... More

With San Jose's accommodation prices being on a rather high level, E-Z8 is the obvious choice for the budget traveler who just wants to freshen up and have a place to rest their head for a night. On top of that, you get free parking, a pool, a Jacuzzi and laundry facilities. If you need an iron, you can get... More

A terrible room on the road - we had to run the air conditioning which was very loud to drown out the t.v. next door. There were a lot of people hanging around when we arrived and it made us feel uncomfortable. Laundry services were good. We had to ask for iron and ironing board (which was a desk top... More

Pleasant staff, on Light Rail line. Can take free transportation from airport to within two blocks of hotel.. Matrix casino with great food 2 blocks away. Fast food places including McD (next door) . Pool not available. Good tv. Could be updated but good for price and location.

I stayed here with my kids because it was low cost & the only motel available with 2 beds at the time. But I will never stay here again. No one has respect to be quiet at certain times of the night or at 3am. I called the front desk & complained. But there still not quiet. But they stopped... More
