8/10 Very good

Convenient stay
Basic hotel, it’ll satisfy your need for sleep, shower, breakfast. Has tv and fridge. Air conditioning is very good. Busy area, great for a take-off to explore what downtown San Jose has to offer. If you’re looking for more than the basics, you have to look somewhere else. And pay more.

4/10 Fair

I lost my money I couldn't stay in the hotel, it seems like they stayed in the 70's, the damp ceilings, I felt very claustrophobic in that place, I had to go and pay for another hotel, it is not honest that there are photos that are not real, it did not last 20 minutes in the hotel .
