Excellent hotel with great amenities. Clean, modern and affordable outside of San Jose in Santa Ana. Walking distance to restaurants in a safe neighborhood. I highly recommend this hotel i you don't like to be in downtown San Jose.

We stayed here for one night and had a good experience. It's in a quiet location but still close to the airport, we had a simple but decent room, a nice balcony looking over the back patio and pool, and we enjoyed a delicious breakfast!
