In addition, the kingpins and start-ups of Silicon Valley are all within close proximity.

Comfortable but no frills

If you are looking for a romantic getaway, this isn't the place. If you're looking for a convenient location and a comfortable bed at a reasonable price, this is a good choice. Fitness center was convenient and had some good machines but it was small.

Good safe place for travelers.

I stayed at this hotel while traveling alone. I felt safe and took the opportunity to make stroll the courtyard during the evening hours. It is well lit during the night--I checked out at 4:15 am and had no problem getting from my building(4) to the lobby across the courtyard.

Decent Place to Crash

This is not the kind of hotel that is enticing to spend your stay lounging around. The rooms are older and the entertainment/food options are limited. On the upside, it's right off of the 101 and the 880 freeways. The bed was comfortable and the shower had good pressure. If you're just looking for a home base to venture out from then this should meet your needs. Compared to other hotels in the area, this one is slightly less expensive. You get what you pay for, but that isn't such a bad thing in this case.

Eh

Good location if you're going to Levi Stadium to see 49ers game or any other event. Needs a serious facelift. They still gave Tube type television which is placed over 5 feet in the air and limited viewing. Oh yeah about a third if the channels are in snow. Like the free parking. Overall it was an slight upgrade from a Motel 6 but twice as much.

Dirty

Was in SJC on business trip. However, the room was dusty. A/C did not work properly. Did not get a good night's sleep because the condition of the room affected my breathing. Will not be returning.
