Very basic room, old and musty. Very small. Not inspiring it all. Breakfast was very basic too, not much choice, only hot dishes like eggs and rice, no toast or granola. Staff is friendly, but considering the price we think it is not a good value for your money.

The hotel rooms are quite outdated however they have starting renovating the larger ones and will eventually get to the other rooms. You can do better for the money if you are strictly looking for a nice room however this hotel is unique in terms of amenities, and there is plenty to do here. It is a large spread out sports complex/club with 12 tennis courts (indoor and out), racquetball courts, gym with treadmills/machines, soccer field, one large HEATED semi-olympic lap pool (most of the pools in the boutique hotels are not heated and they are way too cold to swim in, this is August), another non heated pool, basketball court, and more. Several classes are offered daily, rotating spinning, yoga, pilates, cardio and dance. They even have an on site bowling alley. There is a nominal extra charge for some activities. The main restaurant is large,pleasant and airy, and has a full service bar with seating. Breakfast included, good location, clean, very nice staff.

This hotel has much potential, but lacks so much. I suspect that it has not been updated since it was built. The hotel staff tries to please, but they aren't working with very much. I couldn't recommend this hotel, there must be better options in San Jose.

This is a great place to stay if you like playing tennis or want to be centrally located. It's close to shopping and restaurants. The rooms are clean and the staff is helpful. The breakfast is good. For the price it's an overall good value.

EF Tour - our last night. Rooms were plain but clean, good hot water and excellent mattresses. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Rooms had either a view of the street or a view of a concrete wall. We were given a "bag breakfast" as we left at 4:30 am - that was a waste - a bag of trail mix, an apple, and a juice box.

I confirm what has been told by others: rooms are fine but outdated, not really big, no king bed, but two individual beds setup as one; good A/C, good mattresses (a little to hard for me, but some people like that kind of mattress), grat staff, great amenities (but too crowded, as expected, on weekends)... I'll just add that walls are two thin: hearing the neighbors do their personal business is one thing, but lying in bed and being able to almost chip in my opinion on what they were talking (and they weren't loud talkers!), that was another thing.

Room Tip: Ground floor is slightly quieter. Ask for a room close to reception as those are farther from the st...

I stayed one night here with a group of students. I didn't experience the loud noise that some previous visitors complained about (though we were there on a weeknight), but I was really disappointed with the quality of the rooms. They really need to be updated and improved. For example, in two of our rooms the doors wouldn't close properly, and one kept swinging open all night long. For this same price, you can do a lot better. Also, the management was not very accommodating to our group's needs - we paid in advance for a boxed breakfast so we could make an early flight, but all we got was a bottle of juice and a bag of crackers.
