I stayed at the Best Western Lanai Gardens Inn twice in a weeks time. I flew into San Jose on a week long California motorcycle vacation and stayed there on my arrival night and the night before my departure. I found the location to be adequate, close to hwy 101 and close to restaurants and shopping.
The front desk clerk was nice and helpful. I had rented a BMW motorcycle for my tour and was concerned about being in a nice neighborhood and parking my rental bike, etc. The clerk said it would be ok to park right out front in the 15 min parking within sight of the front door. I arrived early around noon and the front desk clerk said she had a room she could put me in. The room was clean and comfortable, with a fridge and microwave. The room was very inexpensive, i think I paid $71/night.
There were some families staying there and a bunch of kids making noise and playing in the pool but what can you expect, just kids having fun. Things settled down later in the evening and it was nice and quiet. I was trying to save some money and the fridge and microwave came in handy. I went a few blocks down Tully rd. and found a grocery store and purchased some micro meals for dinner.
Not too exciting but being on a budget it was very helpful. The breakfast was ok, cereal, waffles, juice, coffee, yogurt, pastries, etc. Overall, a nice inexpensive place to stay if you're on a budget.
