A no frills motel with extremely friendly staff. Clean, quiet and great parking. Excellent beds. Walking two blocks to great food places. Next to Convention center. Light rail and 2 miles from airport though no shuttle. Downside is minimal complimentary breakfast but places nearby. Would stay there again.

The air conditioned room has somewhat aged furniture, although it has a comfortable bed, a flat screen tv with good channels, a microwave oven, a slightly rusty refrigerator, a small coffee maker, and a adequate iron and board. The wifi is very slow, so don't expect to use it for Netlix or videochat. The shower is clean. Very basic soap,...

Excellent location in downtown San Jose. Walking distance to the convention center. Check in and check out was very friendly. Amazing restaurants options nearby on walk in distance. The property is well maintained. I would definitely stay over if in San Jose next time.. Bhagi, Andrew and housekeeping staff is very friendly and made my stay very comfortable..

First off if you need a taxi to take you, have the address because Taxis know it as the old Ramada Inn not the new name. Secondly be prepared for disappointment. It may be one of the least expensive spots in the area but is it really even worth the going rate? Our room was not ready when we arrived....

This motel room was small, but I chose it because it was walking distance to friends I was visiting. Breakfast is included and the WiFi was very good. Parking was free and at night the parking lot was locked,. It has a small gym on the ground floor.
