Very courteous and helpful service. We had the lower priced, two double bed, room on second floor. Clean room. Good cleaning service. Better than average Super 8 room. Great free breakfast. They do not have a parking lot - just a place right in front of motel where they will watch the car for you 24 hours.
Other recommendations. Unless you are VERY familiar with San Jose do not rent a car, Take a taxi/bus/walk/bike.
1. even a tiny car is quite expensive (extra government mandated insurance added on top of regular quoted price)
2. Stay away from San Jose - plenty of very confusing one way streets, with no left turns 90% of places.
3. Even if you have a GPS, places do not have street addresses like in US/Canada/Europe. Their "addresses" are distance references from known landmarks such as government buildings, hospitals, etc. (like 50 meters north of bank building X - in Spanish)
