    Basic but Excellent Location

    The area is the most excellent portion of this put. The lodging is inside exceptionally simple strolling separate to most of the exhibition halls and attractions in San Jose. There are too many eateries and restaurants nearby, so it isn't troublesome to urge around at all. In terms of the rooms, they are essential but comfortable. My only complaint was that it took a long time to induce hot water. I would ought to run the water for approximately 10 minutes or so some time recently it got to be as it were tepid. Aside from that, I was fulfilled with this put and would remain here once more.

    Good Hotel

    Really enjoyed the hotel's downtown location. Reasonably priced. No swimming pool. Great people watching from the restaurant facing Central avenue. Walking distance to museums and other sites. Safe location. The hotel was clean and well maintained. My room 235 was as advertised. The AC worked well and internet fast. I had plenty of hot water. There was no view, but it was quiet and perfect for my needs. A free buffet breakfast was included which was good. I ate other meals in the restaurant and found the food good and not pricey. The staff was friendly and helpful. I used their small workout room. My car was safe in their garage and readily accessible. But I chose to take taxis. Would visit again.
