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.
