Hey Paul. Are you staying at property, leaving out of SJC, then returning to pick up car? Not sure how to answer that. I had a rental for the few days I stayed there. Then returned car ar SJC when leaving out of town. I don't recall if i had to put a card on my dashboard indicating I was staying there.
One thing, they do not have alot of parking in the garage, but do have extra parking in the lot on the right(outdoors) that they share with the restaurant. That may be your best bet. It would be hard to tell if you were there staying at the property or there for the restaurant. Good luck. Terry
