Wouldn't recommend
The KC hotel has a nice modern lobby and pool area. The rooms are old and ours had a musty smell emanating from all corners including the bathroom and the bed. The first room we were in was old and in need of a renovation. The second room was more recently renovated but had a musty smell and was in a dark corner. The hallways were loud and conversation reverberated into the room.

Good3.0 / 5
I stayed in this hotel room for eight days, I found it to be satisfactory, my room did not have any view which was disappointing, The neighborhood seemed very safe but a little distant from the downtown area, The staff was very friendly and helpful. The free breakfast was a good variety of Continental and domestic flavors. The cost of the room was a good deal. My only other issue was the floor inside the room was ceramic instead of hardwood which I prefer. Please tip the housekeepers because they do a great job.

A good choice for a place to stay in San Jose
When we decided on the KC hotel in San Jose, we didnt know what to expect. We usually rent a place closer to the outskirts of town, away from all of the hustle of city life. We were very happy with the KC Hotel! The staff were very friendly and helpful, Bilingual and always available. The morning breakfast was very satisfying and always on time. The room was comfortable, even though it would have used a fresh coat of paint. The little courtyard in the fromt was an enjoyable place to sit and watch the butterflies and even a resident hummingbird. If we go back to this area we will definately stay there again.

Pleasant basic accommodations
KC Hotel San Jose meets the basic needs of the traveler pleasantly and at a reasonable price. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The room and public areas are clean. Breakfast is not fancy, but adequate and freshly prepared every day. It is centrally located within walking distance of Sabana park, convenience stores, restaurants, pharmacy, etc. Security seems to be appropriate and taken seriously (entrance guard on duty 24/7 controls access after midnight). A word of caution on security -- avoid walking to the left on the street in front of the hotel, past the church (bright and extremely clean) at the corner. Hotel rooms numbered 3XX and 4XX are in a separate building; the rooms surround a large, bright atrium with lush vegetation.
