“Not Nice”
Reviewed August 25, 2009

Sorry to say, I can not give a positive rating to this establishment. The first room they gave us was unclean and the bed had not been made. On our way to view a second room, we noticed suspicious activity close to our room. Because we felt unsafe, we proceeded to find somewhere else to stay.

Bottom line. There are much better options near San Jose airport if you are willing to pay about $40 over what you would pay here.

Stayed August 2009, traveled as a couple

There really isn't much to say - it's your typical Motel 6.

The good: great price and great location. There's a Denny's that conveniently shares a parking lot, and all the business I was in San Jose to conduct was nearby. There were no cleanliness problems, no noise problems or trouble with the neighbors, and no service issues. In fact, the service was above average.

The bad: possibly the smallest room I've ever been squeezed into. There was some initial concern over the quantity/quality of people standing around outside their hotel rooms (but in fairness, there was no trouble from anyone). That typical Motel 6 bedspread.

All in all, there's nothing great to be said, but nothing really bad either. If you need a cheap place, and you're not spoiled for frills, than this is perfectly acceptable.

After a long road trip with a few bumps along the way, this was possibly the nicest place the road trip lead me to. I was placed in a room that was at the end of the building and had the housekeeping room on the other side - it was wonderful! There was no noise to come from anywhere! The laundry facility was nice, also. A gas station and restaurant are conveniently located next door. My only complaint: how is there no wi-fi, considerring the city??

I would suggest this location to anyone looking for San Jose Airport accomodations.

  • Liked — It was quiet
  • Disliked — the door could have been sealed a little better to prevent drafts and road noise

I give this hotel a 2-star. I spent one night here and was not impressed. It was raining out side and since the door was not that well insulated and sealed I could rain and water collect outside of my doorway; bad engineering. Also, the mattress on my bed had not been rotated… at all. I’m sure you know what that may feel like.

There is a Denny’s restaurant across of the parking lot. So you can eat away all of your grumpyness from the restless night prior.
