      It was definitely not as described on the web site. The motel was very run down and the rooms needed a major re-decorating effort. It waould have been a place to stay had there been no other in the area. The location didn't have much to offer. We cut our stay short to find another hotel.

      Expensive for the dirty tubs..also staff walking into ur doom even though Clear ly had a do not disturb sign..will never stay again

    • Family with children

      The accommodations were 2 queen beds and we were able to have our pet stay with us

      When we drove up there was a police officer leaving the premises...when we asked if it was safe to stay there (based on what we were observing about the neighborhood), he responded "Did you check in yet?" I told him we had a reservation and he said just not to walk around area at night because of the people who frequent the area. When I walked my dog the next A.M. there was a prostitute obviously on drugs coming out of one of the rooms and walking around the premises and she told me "Mr. John's treats me good and is gonna buy me a house"..."I Have about a billion dollars". The room was definitely not a "Deluxe" room. When my son asked a question of the day-time desk employee, she wouldn't look at him.

      It's basic, nothing fancy, there when you are in a bind. Coffee in the morning with powdered creamer. Again basic. I think for most it's a lower standard, but if you have no choice, or maybe single, on a budget, or don't care where you stay, and want a place to stay for $70. This is the place.

      Stains on carpet, and stains on chair. Shower didn't work. Cats everywhere. I think people live there or "work" there...wink, wink, nudge, nudge, if you know what I mean.

      Crystal as the front desk was very helpful and accommodating. She was very patient dealing with the family ahead of us with a million questions.

      The room looked clean enough but it controls on the air conditioner / heater was missing buttons - the room showed it's age.

    • Single

      The water was awful! The soap would not lather and felt dry and unclean. The water in the toilet seemed to be congealing white stuff. I would never stay here again. Then there was the prostitutes ( 2 of them) standing in the door/ window displaying their goods. I was not impressed. This place is not good.

    • Older travelers

      Nothing stood out..very basic and in need of remodeling.

      Stains in the tub and Whirlpool( which was advertised as a Jacuzzi) very small..crack in the toilet seat..low quality sheets and towels

      room was very nice, no problems at all with reservation, quiet, comfortable

    • Single

      The price was very reasonable and the quality adequate for staying overnight (chiefly I needed the Internet connectivity).

      The room was a bit soiled and the safe did not work.

    • Older travelers

      It was a older hotel and I didnt like the area or feel real safe.

    • Couple

      I got there around 9:00 pm, there was nobody at the office, and I book for two queen bed got one deluxe, and I end up paying $ 10 more to get what I want.

      Hotel parking space looks like rented by gardener in the back corner.

      First thing to greet our eyes on arrival were two San Jose policemen handcuffing and arresting a man in a ground floor room . Then, after getting our keys, we had to maneuver our way through the stairs where a couple of guests decided to sit down and enjoy their cigarettes and beer. The first night was horrible, because of the next room's guests drinking and laughing at 3 A.M.The following day I decided to move to another room, hoping for a quieter night.Only slightly better, though, for this hotel seems to attract guests who stay up late .What its policies are on pets are a bit unclear, since one of the guests had a pair of chihuahuas kept running up and down the hallway.

      Really bad customer service. I do not feel like to be wellcomed to your hotel by receptionist

    • Group of friends
      7.4

      Very pleasant and efficient staff. Nice front office assistance and competent cleaning crew. Logistics and "FREE PARKING" were great!! Continental breakfast was definitely adequate...

      Location for walking left a bit to be desired
