We loved the staff , restaurant , feel & vibe of the hotel. Older yes , but clean and safe and located in the heart of Old downtown San Jose. Lots of great shops to hunt for treasures , great Mexican artifacts , many souvenir shops with lots of choices for meals or places to hang out. We didn't have any strong dislikes at all.
It was in town close to everything . No hot water, hard beds, the bed spreads needed laundry sex marks from previous guests , cable tv kept going out .
