Booked in here as part of a group. The hotel needs an upgrade, attention to detail is sadly lacking. The room had nails and screws sticking out of walls, the ceiling fan didn't work ( no AC ) none of the plug sockets worked in fact I would say they are dangerous, poor shower. Bed, pillow and bedding had seen better days. I didn't partake in breakfast as it appeared a little disorganised, they is a lovely hotel on the opposite corner that serves decent food. The area appears pretty good during the day and security at the front gate is good. Despite the above I would like to congratulate the hotel's management, one of our group left their wallet by mistake and the hotel arranged to send it to the bus station we were heading to without asking - very good customer care. Overall there are better hotels for a similar price in San Jose.
