    Great value
    Didn't have super high expectations but the room was spacious and well furnished. The breakfast (unlimited coffee and bagels) was a great added bonus. You also get a free parking spot. Overall good experience

    Rooms are nice but outside area could use some cleaning and updating. I know they are investing so soon it will be nice and they raise prices. :-)

    Poor 2.0
    Rude receptionist
    I stayed only for one night on Tuesday March 3rd. And when checking in the receptionist working at 3:15pm asked me when arriving, “hey sir, I noticed you live here in San Jose what did you do today and what are you doing here ?”. Mind you I am a trans woman and I was dressed up portraying a woman. I’ve stayed here before and had a slight problem with my gender identity. But this time he was much worst. I told him that that’s private and he shouldn’t be asking me that, then he contributed being rude to me, kept calling me sir and didn’t say thank y or anything after servicing me. It was very obvious this receptionist wasn’t trans or gay friendly. I informed the other worker and he was nice enough to say sorry but the receptionist working on Tuesday March 3rd at 3pm was horrible to me and I had no choice but to leave my thoughts and review on this place.

    One of the only affordable places in San Jose.
    They've been doing a lot of renovations. All the rooms are newly redone and quite nice. The lobby and breakfast area are also new and really nice.

    Excelence in Service and Comfort
    It wasexpensive for how many rooms were available. However the desk agent was very kind. Polite and greetwd me with much respect and i was fairly treated. While not at my beat. The car company would not rent me a car because i was not so perfectly soo. In appearance. Your desk agent treated me like a king. I was very delighted to be there. And yes i will be back!!

    Loud. I got woken up multiple times due to the person walking around in the room above me. The toilet paper holder didn't work and had obviously just been semi-repaired.
