Our unit was at the end by the pool which was nice. It is a large unit with three bedrooms, a full kitchen, 21/2 baths, a small sitting area upstairs, a dining/living room area, and a patio with table outside. It was outdated, definitely can hear highway traffic and large trucks. No wi-fi in your room (had to go to office with your laptop - we used it a lot to look at maps and places to go). There was intermittent hot water for showed and dishes. When ther are heavy rains we had some leaking inside our unit. The tour guide presentation left us feeling like the months of planning we had done were for nothing. We had rented a car and they really talked it up about not being able to drive into downtown San Jose unless your lisence plate had a tag (true, but for one ther really aren't many police and we were told by several people that they don't bother tourists - we never encountered a problem). They also mentioned that speeding tickets were given out all the time and you would have to deal with that when you went to return your car. It just felt like they were scaring you into returning your rental so you would be dependent for transportation. All that said, the staff was helpful in offering advice and help with directions. The place is located close to airport and a casino which makes changing money convenient. Grocery store and restaurants nearby.
