"They had the power to make it better, BUT..."
Ask for more soap and towels if u dont bring your own. Watch out they take pets too! Unclear door tech to open doors w/card. Dont get a smoking room theyre nasty. The 2 Pillows they give a Q/K are totally lumpy and assist in giving your neck a wrench.

"Quiet and relaxing"
It was nice to get away from downtown to a quiet place that afforded a view of the local community that we would not otherwise see. We really got a feeling for the community which was really nice. Service was friendly, prompt, and helpful. The Egyptian Museum is very close by.

"Make your own Bed"
After check in the office calls your room and asks if you need clean towels and linens daily or to conserve water if one change during your stay would be acceptable. I told them that one change would be adequate. Never realized they also meant that there wouldn't be maid service tied to the no clean linens.

"Dom and Gail' San Jose trip"
This was thebggestripoff for the price. This is at most a $60 motel. The room was tiny, the mattress was caved in toward the middle. There was hardly enough room to get by the bed to the bathroom. The bathroom was awful. Fresh caulk that had not been finishe off. It looked horrible. I feel that we were taken for the price we paid. I am very dissapointed that this hotel was included in your site. I will not be using your site again.

"Worst hotel we have ever stayed in"
No screen on window so we could not open the window for ventilation. The A/C did not work and we are in summer heat. No ironing board or iron. The soap and shampoo were the smallest we have ever experienced. No hair dryer. The doormat in front of the room should have been thrown away a year ago. Can only imagine how dirty the carpet really was. The mirror was dirty. It had streaks on it. Looked like it had not been cleaned.

"A Real Mistake"
Having trouble to find an afordabel room in the San Jose area, to make a quick trip to the area for a Memorial Service, I found a room available at motel - was thinking this was another property. Still, with it within a block A Santa Clara University, I thought it would not be too bad. surprise. Dirty from when we drove up, and only got worse as we entered our dark dingy room with smike coming under the door from those standing outsiade our room at the ashtray. I did ask the hotel to please move the ashtray to the back of the building, which they had done by the time we returned that evening. But there were still people standing there smoking without the recepticle. One of the mattresses was in very poor condition, also. The staff did move us the next day which made the room marginal. I just wonder how many parents from Santa Clara Univerity have been "fooled" by this place. Could be cleaned up with a little effort!

the first day I checked in, I was giving a dirty room. The pillows were dirty and the bed was not even made up. The wifi did not work in the room I needed to stand outside of the room just to get reception. On my second day house keeping came to the room and only give me one towel. I believe the owners write their own good reviews. I would not recommend this motel to anyone.

"Wrong choice for San Jose"
we looked at many of the reviews online that review this hotel a 4? These were highly inaccurate. To begin with we had to wait for 10 minutes just to get the front desk clerk (possibly out of bed) to unlock the door so we could check in. then when we got to the room it looked as though it was from the 70's the drapes look dingy as if they had not been cleaned in months or maybe even years.there was a chair in there that had stains all over it and it looked like it had not been cleaned in over a year also. The bathroom and the sink that were available were probably the cleanest and they were sub par at best. all of this and then we must mention the quarter to half inch crack in the door frame even when deadbolted. The draft and the non-working heater made for a cool night as we tried to stay warm in the uncomfortable environment. Worst $100 we have spent for a night!

"serviceable, but you get what you pay for"
Its just a basic cheap motel. I wouldn't have stayed here, except nothing else on the peninsula was available for less than three times the price per night. That said, it was a really basic hotel, but it provided the basic needs and included free wifi. I wouldn't choose to stay here first, and I wouldn't plan an anniversary night here, but if you just need a bed with clean sheets and a shower cheap, it works.

"what a dump!"
I cannot believe I was charged $170 a night for 2 nights. The outside has not been updated since the 60's. The area is unsafe to walk at night. The first room I was shown had a bed that I think was there since the hotel was opened. The 2nd room had a newer king size bed but I think it had bugs since I have several bites. There is no hair dryer. I was grateful that the owner let me use his wife's dryer. The owner and his family live at the hotel!!. The final event was that the dumpster was emptyed at 2AM the last night I was there. I think I would have been better at Motel 6!

A small independent hotel. Nothing fancy at all. The sort of place I don't mind staying in when I travel and I just need a place to sleep for the night. But I don't expect to pay $150/night for this sort of room, even in the middle of Silicon Valley. The fact that it was moderately convenient and closer to my destination than any other place I could find made it acceptable. But I will work harder to find a different place when I have to come back and stay for another week.

"Try not to stay here"
Wow, where do I start? I was on a work trip in San Jose and any reasonably priced hotel in the area was booked so I was practically forced to stay at Valley Inn. Needless to say, there were many reasons why this hotel was not full. When I first checked out the room I noticed that it smelled musky and that it was pretty dark. Upon second a pass though I saw that the mirror was cracked, the carpet was REALLY dirty, and there was no iron/ironing board! The only pluses were the DirectTV channels and the bed being clean. I highly recommend avoiding staying at this hotel - I would not stay here again, I wouldn't wish it upon my worst enemy.

"Back-up scenario"
When everything else is booked, there is the Valley Inn. It is truly worn down, with a green carpet with long "hair" in my room dating back to the 70s. Well, maybe not that old, but it, along with everything else, gives you that feeling. The tub with the top plastic coat that is peeling off/cracking, the tube TV and the accumulated dirt on the control, a bedside lamps with a broken bulb, etc. And little noisy (particularly the room next to the street.) At the same time, the attendant was quite nice and parking was convenient. So, if you are on a budget and it is cheap, then it's called a "value" choice. If you stay there for $130 because everything else is booked, well, that's when you get to experience first hand the laws of supply and demand ;-)

"No frills, but clean"
I had to make a last-minute trip to San Jose and everyplace was booked so I took a chance on this motel (yes, not a hotel). Bottom line: if you need a room for only a night or two and don't care about frills, this place is fine. It was clean and the staff was friendly. It did seem from Google Maps street view to be in a slightly seedy area, and that wasn't really the case (I guess depends on your definition) but there was a bus stop right at the parking lot entrance and there were several day-laborer-type workmen staying there... nothing wrong with either and it wasn't an issue for me. Parking lot was small and spaces were tiny and it was hard to turn left into the lot from the street it's on. However, it is very convenient to I-880, the airport and the trendy Santana Row is short drive away where I had dinner. As far as the room itself, no HDTV, iron or ironing board, hair dryer or even a box of Kleenex! There was soap and two small packets of shampoo (no little bottle of conditioner or lotion) for the shower (no tub). Again, no frills or extras but it was clean (besides a few scuff marks on the wall near the door) and the Wi-Fi worked great. They even have real-life metal room keys! After booking on Expedia at $170 for the night, I went to the hotel's own web site and they were advertising rooms for $89 as their "average daily rate"... not sure what that was all about and felt like I overpaid when I saw that... I guess no other vacancy anywhere else drives the price up.
