Nothing Fancy but Good Location

A decent place to stay right in the heart of San Jose. I was attending a conference at the Convention Center and many of the other hotels in town were full or way too expensive. The Ramada was a great alternative, just a few blocks from the Convention Center. Rooms were clean and just enough. One issue I had was poor hot water pressure. Otherwise good.

Nothingry Fancy but Good Price/Location

The Ramada doesn't try to be anything its not. If you want a clean, centrally located hotel that's not over-priced like other hotels in the same area -- this is a decent choice. Guests range from business travelers to "rough-around-the-edges" types; and, if have to avoid the occasional panhandler out front. But again, it's clean and well located.

It's a motel

This "hotel" branded as a Ramada painted an inaccurate picture of what was received for my $123. This being the cheapest branded hotel downtown, I suppose I shouldn't have expected much. Positives: I wasn't murdered drive your car up to your door? Negatives: Small Old Loud Sketchy location

Airport overnight trip for early flight from SJC

We were looking for something overnight before an early flight out of San Jose. Great location but room small and beds hard. The parking lot seemed well secured with gates and the room did have a small microwave and fridge. The furnishings were aged and in need of updating as well as carpet.

Great deal

Surprisingly good amenities including microwave and fridge - not a big room, but very cozy, and have been to lower-quality hotels/motels for a steeper price. All in all a nice comfortable stay.

Great Value, Convenient Location

Convenient location for events or conferences at San Jose Convention center, which is where my event was that I was attending. Rooms are small, but clean and have everything you need. I found the beds to be comfortable and enjoyed the HDTV with Direct TV, free wi-fi and simple complimentary continental breakfast. I used the exercise room which was adequate. 10 minute walk to the convention center a couple blocks away. Fast food as well as fine dining within easy walking distance. Can get to/from airport using public transportation (bus and light rail), which make it even more affordable. Great value! I'd definitely return in the future.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Take bus/light rail to/from airport. Will only cost you $2. Free bus to light rail station from airport. Short walk (10-15 min) from light rail to hotel. Give yourself 30-60 minutes, but not that long of a trip (I made in about 30 minutes)
