Boutique style hotel in a quiet neighborhood. Has a great restaurant onsite for dinner. Rooms are clean, but average and could use updating. Staff were helpful and professional.

2/10 Poor

The property is not as great as it once was, the staff were rude except for a few, there were no amenities. The areas are overrun by homeless, overall not worth the money much better hotels in San Jose. I don’t say This with any bias. It just isn’t that great of a hotel.
