Knowing I would not have a car during two nights in San Jose, I was attracted to the notion that this place, while a little more expensive than some, is on the Caltrain line, as I was coming through town on Amtrak. It is indeed on the line, but only for very limited early morning and night stops on WEEKDAYS, and I learned it the hard way, arriving on a Saturday night! Otherwise, the place was nicely-appointed, with a good room and breakfast. Most of the staff were fine, but some didn't want to be bothered.
