Business Trip

First day I got there. I have noticed right away that the towels are dirty and look older. I went to the front desk and ask about it. He change it for a newer set. The room is small and the bed is hard. Overall its okay just to sleep in.

I don't feel safe at this hotel

This is not a good place to stay. Even though I paid in advance for two nights I am cutting my stay one day short. I don't feel safe. If you have to stay here don't bring kids. There are a lot of questionable guests here.

Just ok, nothing more

bathrooms at this facility need an overhaul. They also need to provide more towels. If it's a double room you should provide towels for two people not one. Why I do I have to call down for more towels when there were only two of us in a double room. Bathrooms was rusted out and old looking. I was not comfortable using the bathroom at all.

Close to Airport

Hotel looks updated on the website but the bathtub is not; looks dirty because of staining. Inside panel of window was broken in bath. Good for overnight on the way somewhere else. We stayed 2 nights. Staff was helpful and called to make sure you are OK with the room. Note: If you are super clean, do not stay here. My mom joined us last minute and didn't like it.

Alura Inn - San Jose

A little bit out of the way, but a close enough to the center of town, it's a good value. Good Mexican and Vietnamese food nearby. Staff courteous and nice.
