    Fabulous 8,6 From 269 reviews

    Very good 8,0
    Good, but my experience didn't match prior ratings
    No major problems or issues at this hotel, but my room was not as nice as expected based on the overall rating of this hotel. I was staying in a room that may not reflect the property overall. Although my room was accessed from the main hallway it was actually in a separate building separated from the main building by a small breezeway. Room was stuffy without keeping windows open. The only windows on the room open into this small breezeway and are directly across from the back windows of the rooms in the 'main' portion of the hotel. This makes it very easy to every little noise from these other rooms, every cough, sneeze, etc. Room could use some update and maintenance although not terrible.

    Good value
    Nice affordable hotel in a great location in downtown San Jose. The hotel is an old Victorian style house, rooms are spacious but if your staying on the 1st floor you can definitely here movements from the uests upstairs. Tub was slippery so we had to be careful. Breakfast was various & tasty! Overall for the price and location I would stay again 8.5 of 10
