We stopped by here on our way south. Again, we stay in hotels 7 days a week. The cleanliness wasn't a huge issue, there isn't anything to clean! You get a bed for $100.00. No desk, 1 chair from a kindergarten class, what appeared to be a counter from a diner somewhere. They do not offer free wifi, you have... More

We stayed here during quick stopover to visit family. Upon arrival, we were asked for all IDs because the area wasn't the best. We were told to keep things out of car because thefts do occur. We had no issues but may consider another location next time.

I visited the motel two times which was a convenience for resting after a meeting in San Jose State University. In the hotel the place is clean and well prepared with the available amenities. I also took the time to offer pizza for dinner which was a feast. I will look forward to relax in this Motel again I'm case... More

This is probably my third time staying at this hotel over the years (once some months ago). I stay there because many hotels in San Jose near where I do my events (a fulltime nationally performing comic ventriloquist) are priced sky high. On two previous occasions (I may have done a review) I had DREADFUL internet where I either couldn't... More

They didn't listen to customers. The girl with a blond hair tried to kick me out since I already paid and requested to have two room next to each others but she asked me if I wanted to go to another hotel at 12 am. I was shocked! She didn't say Sorry but like yelling at customers. I came on... More

I had no idea that the location was in a bad part of town or I would have never reserved a room. Lots of shady characters, loud, people fighting, dirty surroundings, nothing in the room but a tv, bed and table. The ONLY amenities available in the room was a plastic ice bucket and 2 cups. When I asked for... More

Just off the main highway, this Motel 6 has an excellent location. I read other reviews noting how it's located in an industrial area. Whoever wrote that has, to me, the emu correct definition of industrial area. Very close by are restaurants, convenience stores, and shops. I loved the location. The front desk staff we're super friendly. The room excellent.... More
