Close to railway station, walking distance to city centre, supermarket close by. A little run down but clean. Good value. Breakfast very basic but ok. You get what you pay for!

Fantastic value for money, close

Pros: Location, room size and comfort
Cons: The dropoff point out the front of the hotel being fixed.
Location: So close to SAP Center, transportation and downtown, you can walk to all of those without an issue.
A short walk to SAP Center, Amtrak/Caltrain and downtown makes it a convenient location. It has large rooms with comfortable beds and a fairly adequate buffet breakfast. Hotel staff were super friendly and helpful. A bit of construction near the property makes it tricky to get to on foot at the moment and there is an issue at the dropoff point outside the hotel with the roof which makes it look a little unappealing but don't be deterred. This was great value.
