    Concert before a wedding!
    Amazing service all around! Will be staying again when i go back out there. Would love to see small fridge and microwave in room but still amazing a beautiful room

    Good 6,0
    The outside needs a lot of work the bed was comfortable but there was a big chunk of hair in the door which grossed me out the whole stay

    Renovated rooms, no safety deposit boxes
    Rooms where newly renovated. Unfortunately, there weren't any safety deposit boxes in the hotel room. I don't think that the area was worse than others in San Jose, but I think that San Jose is just not that great. Anyway, had a nice stay. Thank you!

    Clean, Safe Convention Center Location
    Attending convention and found this gem last minute for a great price and FREE PARKING! Very convenient walking distance to/from convention center (5 min walk for an out of shape 50+ woman in a moderate heel 😆). Room was exactly as pictured. Lovely, renovated, comfortable, and CLEAN. Neighborhood is going through gentrification so, walking around, I found an eclectic mix of new, trendy bars and nightclubs, great international grub stops (Vietnamese, Indian, Japanese, Thai, Mexican fusion, Greek, German), both new & established businesses. Also interesting was beautiful 19thC Victorian homes edging the neighborhood while colorful urban murals cover 20thC brick, industrial business buildings. But back to Pacific Motor Inn....The owner(s) clearly had eyes open to the area improvements and are putting the money in to compete w/larger chains in the area. These improvements take time, with their focus being on guest comfort first - thanks! Carpeting on exterior walks is old & stained, and elevators need a cleaning. But why do those updates before the building exterior is done? Overlook the exterior lackluster, get to your room, or the pool, and relax. Third floor will probably be best for light sleepers. Again, older structure being revamped, but there’s not much that can be done to damper the sound of heavy steps above. I didn’t see the breakfast room, so I have no review of that, but staff was very friendly and I will definitely seek out PMI for my next downtown SJ stay.
