Hotel is clean and conveniently located in San Jose. Front desk service is very poor. Breakfast is simple. Rooms are noisy.

I was in town for a Convention and this Hotel was very conveniently located. Maybe 2 block, less than 4 minute walk from the centre. Although small, the downtown in San Jose is quite nice. Decent food and busy in the evenings. My only problem with Ramada and it is partially my fault is that when I booked with Expedia the Ramada convention centre is the only Ramada that came up and I booked. This Ramada that I wanted was not available so I ended up booking a non-cancellable reservation at the other Ramada. Neither Ramada Hotels, nor their central office nor Expedia was any help. I ended up having to lose all my money on the first hotel and just pay for this one. For 2 nights I lost about $180 but the inconvenience and cab fare I would have spent staying at the Sunnyvale misbooked one would probably have destroyed the trip for me.

Rooms were clean. Staff at the desk were more than helpful and friendly. Breakfast was much better than I expected too. I wouldn't hesitate staying here again. If you are driving in, parking is free too which seemed like a nice bonus. Good security at night.

Stayed here for one night before moving on to the nearby Hilton with friends who arrived the next day. It was definitely a good place to sleep off the two hour flight from Seattle and the staff were friendly enough. Room was clean and didn't have any noise issues.

Room Tip: Probably request a room in the middle of the complex, where noise is minimal if you're more sens...

I was taken back by the smell of the room. I slept onto of the covers because I was itchy when on the bed.

Just returned from a at this hotel for 4 days, 3 nights, while I was attending a convention. It was easy walking distance (just over 2 blocks) to the convention center, and was half the price of the convention center hotels, which is why I chose it. I was very happy with the hotel. Free parking, internet and continental breakfast, added to the value. It's not a luxury hotel, but it was clean and the staff was very nice.
