The bed is comfort, Complementery breakfast is also good. Easy for transportation. Location is also good around by different shops. Only regret thing is the hotel receipt they cann't give to me, because we have 9 people need to know the detail charge into seperrate the fees.

Convenient location. Broken shower handle switch. Towels smell chlorine. I guess 2 stars tell you all about what to expect.

I like clean places, this hotel has clean rooms, comfortable beds and clean bathroom. I got what I was looking for with an affordable price. The breakfast is okay, very limited items!

this is a fine place to stay if your not looking for anything special a little creepy if you have to leave early in the morning like I do.

Awful. I checked in late and the management was really unfriendly. The place was filled with hooligans drinking, yelling and making noise all the time.

You get what you pay for. My flight was delayed 5 hours so I had to show up at 2:00am. I guess the attendant was sleeping. They didn't answer the night window despite several rings of the buzzer. I decided to call their front desk and I guess it woke them up. Got checked in ok, and to the room. Had to leave and go get a razor to shave and realized the only 24 hour store was CVS. When I came back there were shady guys just walking around the balcony. They didn't seem to have a reason for being there so I thought it was pretty odd. I really wouldn't feel safe, If I was a woman walking around there that late. Parking was COMPLETELY FULL I parked in one of the 15minute spots because I was leaving early so I figured I would avoid any hassle from the attendant. Anyway, you get what you pay for. Bed was ROCK SOLID... I'm just glad I was so exhausted, otherwise it would have taken a while to fall asleep.

The place looks very shady, okay for one night stay. However I felt unsafe, also somebody kept trying to open the door, I didn't dare get up to check. Room itself was fine. Needed the iron, but had to go to the front to get it.

Pass on this one. There are many different properties that would have been a better choice. Location is good for Silicon Valley, but property is grungy.

This hotel is pretty cheap and the room was clean exept for the toilet. There was some noticeable areas on the toilet that were not cleaned. The room had wireless interent and a fridge in the room, which was nice. The hotel staff is not friendly at all, but I guess you get what you pay for.

This hotel was a good choice for an overnight stay in San Jose. The room was clean and the heater/AC worked fine. The only problem was not really the hotel's fault - a car alarm went off in the parking lot in the middle of the night and continued going for a long time. There is no place to sit to eat the breakfast which is in the lobby, but the chocolate chip muffins are delicious and there are mini-bagels, cream cheese, jam, and a toaster as well.

The Econo Lodge was clean but in much need of repairs. The door knob didn't work very well and the sheets had holes that had been stitched together. The fan in the bathroom needed replacing (very noisy) and the floor had been replaced without removing the toilet which made the toilet VERY close to the ground. My mother is handicapped and had a very hard time with it. Other than that the experience wasn't too bad. We were only there one night and didn't spend much time in the room. Not a place I'd recomend to anyone tho'.Being on ElCamino Rl. gave us lots of restaurants to choose from.
