The Mona Lisa, (previously the Clarion) is the best value in San Jose. It is in the process being renovated but is operating efficiently with Guy Grand as manager and he will bend over backwards to accommodate all your needs. This hotel is not necessarily a family oriented hotel but more like a sports Bar and Casino hotel with staff that is very accommodating. The casino is extremely well run and always has both low and high limit poker games going. There is also a new travel office that can handle all your excursion needs whether for Game fishing or eco tourism and there is a great little store in the lobby area. The location I my opinion is the best in down town San Jose. It is in the Amon Bario which is much quiter than all the other down town locations and only a short walk to central avenue.
