fairly reasonable price. jacuzzi worked, although had to ask 2 staff members to turn on the heat-the first one didn't apparently know how. the pool was not heated, they didn't replace tissues, washcloths, coffee or condiments. there were no blankets. the breakfast food consisted of white bread, 3 cold cereals, orange flavored drink. they ran out of white bread and coffee! most of the staff didn't speak english.
room was ok for price was told the park was less than a mile from a amusement park, when actually its over 5 miles. asked staff for extra blanket, was told to come down and they would see if they had any, same for towels. plus was never told when we called to make reservations the day before the pool and spa was empty! was looking forward to sitting in the spa at night and relaxing in the pool during the day (warm weather). booked a king size bed got 2 queens.
Room wasn't ready when we arrived maid was sitting in room watching tv smoking a cigarette
Nothing There was no tissue to use. The designated spot for the tissue was empty and the front desk informed me that they were out. There was no blanket nor was the a regular blanket. The front desk informed me that there wasn't any comforters available but they had a scratchy old blanket that I could come get myself. The TV Was too low making it hard to watch tv in bed. Finally, the bed was horrible to sleep on.
Located in the center of South Bay, East Bay and Tri Valley area. Wide selection of TV channels. Avoid this hotel especially on weekend if you don't want to wake up at mid night like 3 a.m. by some party people noise next door. Couldn't use laundry room. Dirty towel on the rack. Family operating motel need more kind attitude to their guests.
The room.had a mini-fridge and a microwave The bed didn't have many blankets jest two sheets, the Jacuzzi tub's drain wouldn't close, the pillows were absolutely terrible, the bed was very run down, there was a constant ticking noise from the fridge, and the staff tried hitting on me but I tried to make the best of it since I paid.
It was near the Great Mall, about 15-20 minutes walk. It has microwave, tv, ref, and bathtub.I like the beds. they were neat and big.
Only the price. Domestic violence in thee parking lot. Dirty room. Roaches.
Was upgrated to a king for same price. Friendly staff. Very clean. Smoke free room. Continental breakfast not good.
Everything was great for me and my boyfriend stay thanks! :-)
I like everything I saw.
You pay for budget price & get budget service.Didn't like the noise level. Didn't like the queen size bed. It feel like it's only a full size fit . Not comfortable for tall & American sized guests.
Close to airport and mall. heavy desinfectant odor in the room (although the room was clean)
The hotl gives a correct attention and is according you pay for it. I'lcome back. the location
Parking was available. The sheets looked old and they did not have the clean feeling. The rooms were worn down, Tv's were ole. The breakfast was just a joke. They had miniature coffee and the smallest slice of cake they called it a free breakfast.
Nothing other than the convenient location. The room was dirty. The furniture damaged and falling apart. The air conditioner barely worked, and buttons were broken and missing. The towels had stains on them. The coffee pot didn't work. Should be listed as 1-star. It was gross.
Nothing. Everything was dirty, the phones, carpets, sheets, bathrooms. Yuck.Not worth the money I paid. Rude service.

Nothing The whole experience was the worst that I ever had at a hotel!
Location only Hot water was wonderful The bed felt like I was sleeping on a bag of rocks.
The front desk clerk was really friendly. I liked that the hotel was older, and rustic. The bed was comfy. There is a walgreeens and a Denny's 50 yards away.

affordable, quiet and accesible. the staff at the lobby were uncourteous.
big and clean room, nice shower, easy to acces nothing
Room was satisfactory, served our purposes for the weekend, pool was great, staff was very accomodating, thankyou.
Excellent personal service, called and set up taxi service. Wake up call at 4am right on time.
We liked staying at the Super 8 for several reasons. The morning Continental breakfast was just right. The juices, coffee toast and rolls were delicious. The Mexican restaurant at the hotel had a very complete menu and the things we ordered were very good. We didn't like the rainy days.
Staff is very polite; the local bus stop is very closed to hotel; the hotel is 5 minutes from San Jose` downtown. The breakfast is basic and not continental. Rooms are not very clean.
Nice tidy big unit, plenty of room. Serviced daily The motel did not have a guest laundry. Had to ask for cups to make hot drinks in the room. I had paid in full prior to our stay but have since discovered a small amount has since been charged to my credit card
Bathrooms redone Bad wifi
I normally do not go out of my way to write reviews, but in this case, the management and the front desk staff went so out of their way to make sure that our stay was perfect that I truly felt compelled to do so. At first, I was surprised at how highly a motel of this style and price was rated on every website we checked. Low on options, we booked it anyway, albeit skeptically. But thankfully for Flamingo, they squashed our skepticism upon check-in and we realized the reviews were exactly right, if not high enough. I've stayed at many similar motels through the years, and usually you get what you pay for, but not at Flamingo because here you get more. Great service, good location, clean rooms, incredibly polite and attentive staff made our trip to San Jose perfect! A+ n/a
Nothing everything was horrible Bathroom was dirty like someone had just checked out. Room had a funny smell. We didn't stay we drove over an hr home after our game because i was not going to stay in that filth. Will never go back again
Location off of highway, very easy to find. Located in somewhat of a bad area of town. Random homeless/ drug users wandering around property at late hours of the night. Flet unsafe to leave room at night. Room had patches in the ceiling. Bathroom corners and corners of room were dirty with built up. Furniture was dirty and broken/ missing pieces. Overall a hotel worth half the price I paid to stay there, book with a well known chain hotel.
Close to airport, easy to find. Cochroaches, popcorn in my bed, broken electrical plate covers, constant pot oder, could see through to the out side via door gap when it was closed and hair in shower.... like 2ft long wad of hair on the shower wall and pubes in the tub. Also if any one used water i could hear it via the pipes shaking. Just yuck. I slept on top of the blankets. Dont stay here.
Graffiti in my room! Horrible smell, no comforter, no fitted sheet. I had a flat sheet and a blanket, and I visited during January. I should've stayed at Motel 6
Heater didnt work.
Location Too loud, could hear traffic all night.
Close enough to Great America theme park. Lousy free breakfast (it was literally just toast and cereal), had to kill a roach in bathroom suggesting it might have a bug problem. For the price we got though it wasn't to bad.
Little to like other than price and location. This hotel is not safe! Lots of homeless around the Hotel. Some idiots tried to kick my door in at 6am. Use as last resort for price / location. Keep door locked and stay safe. Don't leave valuables in room.
Nothing The roaches and management
Convenience and location were not bad as I had to be somewhere early the morning after my stay and it allowed me to get there with time to spare. Check in was fairly simple and the room was easy to locate. The price of the room is the last good point of my stay, as it was Super Bowl weekend when I was at this hotel and they were one of the cheapest rooms for the one night I needed. Where should I start.... The room I received a key card for was on the side of the hotel closest to the freeway exit ramp. So, during the night when an officer went to pull over someone, and used his bullhorn, I was woken up. The room seemed out of place and too small for the amount of furniture in it, as there was a table pushed over a chair, near the door. The corridor light (1st floor) was right outside my door, so every time I turned over, I thought I had slept through my alarm and couldn't go back to sleep. The flooring seemed "warped" near the bathroom door (near the sink). It wasn't flat and it made a "crunch" noise when stepping on that area.
Would not recommend this hotel to my worst enemy I disliked everything
Friendly Staff, Continental Breakfast, Comfy Beds/Pillows and Several Hundred Cable Channels... Shower Head for People Under 5' & a Couple of Bugs in the Bathroom...
Carpet very dirty , feet become black
Dirty. AC has thick lining of dust as fan blew. Desk clerk was rude.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
There wasnt anything i liked about it. ItLooked nasty. Didn't care for location. The clerk was rude. I didn't feel safe. See above. I wouldn't stay there again if it was free.
The staff made my family and I see comfortable and feel very welcome. No problem with the hotel except wish they had bath tub
2-star hotel? Half the rooms looked like low income rentals! The only employee not speaking English as a primary language was behind bulletproof glass. Location backs to industrial warehouses surrounded by barbed wire. Streets swarming with shady people.
This is not a 2 star hotel, ONE at best. I felt ripped off This is not a 2 star hotel, ONE at best. I felt ripped off
The room had recently been refreshed. Standard of cleanliness and attention to detail was severely lacking. A filthy desktop and nightstand made me wonder about everything else. Toilet leaked at the base, 3 of 4 lights in bedroom were burnt out and had to ask to be replaced.
The hotel was unclean and unsafe. The surrounding was scary. I had to cancel second day of my staying for that reason. The owner told me they will charge only one night. I hope your company will return or pay back my second day's deposit.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Freshly remodeled the inside of the room was much better than what you would expect from the architecture and general outside appearance. Of the place.
It was clean. Very very old facility. Uncomfortable. Cheap as hell. Three little tiny pillows. Couldn't even get a big pillow. They claim to have breakfast but it's a few muffins and some cereal. No plastic plates or silverware. And you can't take anything back to your room. Overall it was just a terrible experience.
Place looked nasty, sure sheets seemed clean but old, run down, and flat pillows. Nasty green carpet from the 70's, and just reminded me and my wife of the rich motel. Everything really, especially the uncomfortable beds!
Location was convenient to my work. No shampoo provided
Easy access to 101 freeway and San Jose airport Very slow wifi and lack of open electrical plugs.
The whole thing felt dirty, nothing in the room feels inviting. Also, that was the worst bed to sleep in, my neck is still killing me.
Nothing It's vert old and dirty, so smelly. I couldn't tell what was in the sink!
Close to the airport. Outside: -Obvious drug deals visible from the check-in office. -Prostitutes and their escorts in the halls. -Various men with dogs wandering the parking lot. Inside: -Plastic covered mattresses. -Noisy AC unit. -Broken refrigerator. -Cigarette burns on furniture and shower. -Thin walls.
Location It was loud, dirty and had lot's of "suspicious" customers. Definitely not recommended.
Value-for-money, clean and quiet Very limited facilities Basic Wi-Fi could be included in the room package; daily charges for paid Wi-Fi access on the higher side
Dirty and noisy. I was there for five days and had to get new key cards twice because they stopped working.
Quiet No access to sodas after certain time
Staff Not secure quite a lot of police activity and window of my truck was smashed in and my stuff was stolen. Room was cheap till you figure cost of repairs to truck. Not safe
There was nothing good about this motel The building is falling apart. The stairs are held up by boards...very unsafe!!! Very scared. Lots of yelling, slamming doors, kicking and beating on walls. People digging in the dumpster. Couldn't stay another night. Had our money refunded.
I thought it was interesting that police was searching one of the rooms two doors away from me that was in shambles when I first went to my room. This place needs to be demolished and rebuilt and taken off the hotel search engines. If you want to check off surviving the night in a rough looking area? this your place and an added bonus of roaches, bed bugs, high probability is where the prostitutes check in because they got to go somewhere. I give this place no stars and if anyone give this place a good rating is because they work there or have a friend that work there or lives like place.
Security guard 24/7 watching the cars in the parking lot and nice guy at front desk who moved us to a different room with less cockroaches..... COCKROACHES EVERYWHERE, and really shady ghetto people. Beds were also very uncomfortable, pillows felt like cardboard and the blanket was basically a sheet.
Nothing. I felt i was in a war torn country. Below human standard. Doesn't belong in San Jose. Everything. No shampoo. Reeked of smoke. Dirty. Prostitute house. Lousy beds. Lousy TVs. Worst ever. Dont have it in Search list.
Nothing Our bed was rockhard, her room reeked of cigarettes even that was a non-smoking room. It were people " living" in the hotel who would stare at you as you walk in and out of your room and to your vehicle. We first arrive at the hotel there were four police officers looking for certain person was living in the hotel. There was a security guy that was very useless after hours who would always questioning you and give you a dirty look when you wanted into the hotel. I would never stay here again know what I recommend this motel anybody pay a couple more dollars and stay at any other hotel if you know what's good for you.
Would never go back again. Police patrol on a regular drive by Scary, children are not safe.
Roaches,drug activity,I woke up to a fight outside my room door. Two females,this was at 2 am. No security I went to the front and nobody at the front desk 10 minutes I waited. The next morning at 10a the cable went out.I called front desk he said it happens alot. Couldn't tell me wen it would be fixed.I left for the whole day back that night alot of activity in the parking lot,people hanging outside rooms and on stairs.I would not stay here again and do not recommend this place to anyone.
NOTHING! Disgusting motel!
Service was friendly, quick and simple. Happy to help with directions. The water temperature in the sink was didn't get cold.
Staff was friendly. Fairly close to shops and attractions if you have a car. This hotel was very old, doors open to parking lot with large windows that were not very secure, the bathrooms had rusty features, the tub was stained, spiderwebs in windows, thin towels, and minimal toiletries, the rooms were stuffy, the thermostat didn't work. I would not choose to stay here alone.
The room was big and roomy Location and overall appearance of the hotel. It's a rundown place that had a half ass face lift. I also didn't like the fact that the front desk accusede of smoking and denied me from ever booking there again. I wouldn't stay here even if they paid me.
I liked the fact they don't use that bug spray in the room most hotels in that price class use. The furniture in the room is newish and the bedsheets didn't have any faint skidmarks that didn't get washed out. What do you expect?? This is a cheap place (even though you sold it to me for $80+ when it's worth $65 after taxes). Hotel staff does not place a hold on the credit card for incidentals but charges the credit card after the guest arrives for $100. This means I have to monitor that those $100 are returned and this is extra work I do not appreciate. I think $80+ whatever I paid is totally overpriced for this hotel, what the hell are you people thinking? The place is also loud and the blinds in the room afford little privacy.
comfortable bed sheets weren't clean neither were some of the towels tv was static no pool or hot tub kayak says there is supposed to be
The location was close to downtown and the airport. It was a $90 room vs $200 for a Hampton Inn or similar close by. It was definitely an Inn and not a hotel but the location was safe and rooms were clean and retail was close for dinner. For the price and expectations it was fine. Being a smaller inn and independent you get what you pay for. It was clean and everything worked but it was a bit noisy being next to a busy road and it was raining and the rain flowing through the gutters was quite loud.
Usually stay at Hilton properties (every Hilton/Mariott was sold out the week I was in town) so that's what I have to base my review on. They were remodeling and trying to improve cleanliness. The staff was friendly. Close to airport, $10 uber ride to downtown. Property was older, somewhat dirty, motel like with parking lot in front of rooms...
Free parking, easy to find, fast to take local transportation. Breakfast.
The staff was nice to me, other guests checking in around me were kinda jerks, so when I wasn't they treated me nicer. I got what I paid for, an inexpensive place to crash, and I had no delusions about this place being a five star joint. It was an affordable, not filthy place to stay for less $$ than nearby competitors. I was a little weirded out by the need to have razor wire up between this motel and the next one over. How rough are the pricing wars between motels that you'd need razor wire up between the two? And the fact that I had to run the shower a good 30-45 seconds to flush out the brown/rust water from the shower before getting in was a bit off-putting.
Location was easy to find and access from freeway, light rail right across the street, free parking, free wireless, quiet. Restaurant and 7/11 very handy.
Resting No milk in the fridge, no coffee made it inconvient for us we had to go to the office to make coffee and have our breakfast,whereas we could just make it in our room.
Front desk support. Parking lot close to the apartment, many people flow in/out and than to much car noises and people talking.
Many long stay customers. Construction workers? Had the atmosphere of a truckstop.
Very close to public transportation and 7/11 nearby. Continental Breakfast is not good. Wifi does not work when too many people staying at the hotel. It is a motel rather than a Hotel.
Room well equipped (refrigerator, microwave, WiFi, TV, Iron, ...). A rail service station is located very close to the hotel. A Dennis restaurant (24 hours) is next to the hotel entrance and there is a small grocery store (7/11) some steps away. The hotel personal was always kind and prompt to help. The carpet in the room was not in a very good condition and not very clean. This may cause problems to allergic people. The breakfast is not what one may expect. There are packed muffins, juice and some fruits that can be picked up, but the hotel does not have facilities to serve a breakfast.
yeah, the hotel was fine and good. We stayed there for 6 nights, it was all perfect, though we use to get up early in the morning and getback in the eveing for a comfortable sleep. Every thing was available as mentioned on the website, the location was perfect as near to light rail station, there was denny's resturant 7/24 open. The staff was also very cooperative, there was a continental breakfast every morning, i think in this price it was good then just OK. The wifi was a little bit shaky, it didnt work proparly, i had mentioned this problem to the staff over there.
Near the tram station. Easy access to the public transport. The toilet needs to be upgraded and the breakfast is poor.
Room was clean and comfortable. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Location was convenient with public transportation available right in front of the office and major freeways within a few blocks. Outside noise was non-existent. Parking was easy and even with a 24 hour restaurant sharing the same parking lot there was always a spot near the room. I would stay here again. Shower rod was rusty and should be replaced or painted. Ironing board was broken and had to be replaced but staff attended to it quickly. Motion sensor for light shut off was located behind a curtain so it could not sense movement in the room and would plunge us into darkness without warning. Shaking the curtain remedied the problem. Sound of water from upstairs shower was loud.
