Yes, this in a dicey part of town, very near the fairgrounds and horse race track, but the beds were comfy and it was clean. I totally agree with another review - tons of furniture, too much - and well used. Furniture has seen better days but for a quick over night in the San Jose area, it was fine....

I have stayed at this hotel twice in the past 3 years while visiting San Jose. The rooms are clean, quiet, and comfortable. The rates are pretty good for the area. It is convenient to San Jose and there are plenty of services close by. There is a decent breakfast (typical yogurt, bagels, cereal, coffee) available. This is not a...

Stayed here while attending a wedding in the area. The bed was ok, the staff friendly and helpful, the breakfast was average for free breakfast but the breakfast room was very hot. The location felt a bit dicey but overall decent place for the money.

The place looks very nice. The phone in the bathroom worked sometimes and the phone near the bed never worked in the 2 days I was there. The outdoor pool is not heated other than solar heating, that we could tell, and the hot tub was not hot. When I told the manager, he turned on the jets and said...

We were just pass through for a night and needed a place to stay. Call all our favorite "go-to" hotel and they were sold out. Too a chance on this place and it's just Ok. Spacious room, but the hotel is pretty blah and it smells musty. Decor is old fashion and furniture is well worn with holes. Pool is...

This hotel isn't anything fancy but it does have a clean bed and is a good price in San Jose. I would stay here again. No elevators to the second floor and I would recommend trying to get away from the road (noisy) if possible. Other that that it's your standard hotel.

The price here is one of the cheaper places to stay in Silicon Valley. Thus, I was a little worried but was thankful to find an attentive front desk worker, a very spacious and clean room (with plenty of furniture, as in a table, chairs, dresser, larger chair, microwave, fridge, another cabinet), and a basic continental breakfast in the morning...

Been trying to give Choice hotel chain a try as they can be more economical that other national chains. Haven't had much luck with Comfort so thought I would stay at the so called more upscale of the Choice brand. The hotel room is large. The décor is like stepping back into the 70's or 80's. Pale/Dark blue tile and...

This was definitely a good hotel but definitely make sure it's where you want to stay. It is not in the most convenient location. Overall there were no issues when we stayed here with our son, they had a crib for us to use.

Had to really search to find a plug for my electrical devices. Only found 1 and had to unplug a light to use it. Room was fine, could use some updating. Overall for the money and the one night stay, I'd come back.
