Hurricane Otto stranded me in San Jose for two extra nights. By the time I dealt with my flight issues, all the hotels near the airport were full. I found this one on line, and while it was a ways away, the price couldn't be beat. It's a newer building, and was very clean and comfortable. There are a ton... More

Good Biz hotel with great breakfast. Close to an office park Forum and many decent restaurants. It is located relatively close to the airport which makes flying in and out quite easy. For tourists this part of town is not very attractive. Try La Ostra next door for ceviche!

From the hotel staff, to the room, the breakfast buffet, the pool and grounds, the centralized location and availability of restaurants and a super market (all within a 2 minute walk) make this the ideal location to stay in or near the San Jose area. PERFECT!!!!!! 5 Stars!

Nice little place, nothing fancy, sort of on the motel side of quality. All tile floors, no bedroom carpet, gigantic walk-in shower was best feature. Nice bed, good pillows, noisy air conditioner. Staff I encountered was nice. Decent breakfast with OK variety.
