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.
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
Quiet No access to sodas after certain time
Dirty and noisy. I was there for five days and had to get new key cards twice because they stopped working.
Location It was loud, dirty and had lot's of "suspicious" customers. Definitely not recommended.
The worst experience ever. I'll never stay again.
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
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 was convenient to my work. No shampoo provided
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.
May not be the swankiest place around, but bed was warm and comfortable, and shower hot. Staff very helpful. Wi-Fi, cable, refrigerator, and airport shuttle. Wi-Fi was a bit spotty at location of table in room
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.
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!
There is no lock to the restroom in the room.
I liked how decent it looked for the price we payed it was a nice place. Clean enough for us as in no blood or insects crawling around like other hotels reviews I had read. Nice little studio type of rooms with nice wood floors and a big enough queen bed for two The shower was a one person shower so it wasn't very spacious. The beds were not very comfy but if staying over night it's not a big deal and lastly the locations of the staircases were a bit confusing.
Service was friendly, quick and simple. Happy to help with directions. The water temperature in the sink was didn't get cold.
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...
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
Leaving early Feeling like I might be robbed or killed at any moment.
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.
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.
Leisurely 1.2mi walk to SJCC, partly along trail.
Friendly staff, clean room. Literally the most uncomfortable bed and pillows ever. I didn't expect memory foam obviously but it was like sleeping on a thin layer of springs. My back hurt all day after.
Location of hotel was near downtown San Jose.
The room was very clean, the whole property was well kept. The staff was very helpful and friendly. they went out of their way to make sure I was happy. I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends. The price was steep, but it seems they all are in this area.
We found the room to be very nice and uber clean. Given that there were some negative comments about cleanliness we found that to not be the case, We would stay there again with no concerns.
Modern rooms The man at the front desk when I checked in was rude .
Walking distance to SAP Center Room was very small, no closet, no Kleenex , TV was bad and morning coffee had only powdered creamer. Color of the room was awful, bright orange.
One of the best Motel 6 motels I've experienced. Above average staff, very clean, excellent location for public transportation and very good local cafes and restaurants. I'll be back.
Good location, reasonably well maintained, recentlich remodeled rooms. Horrible beds, very noisy A/C, very noisy fridge. Clientel is mostly construction workers travelling on behalf of their employers. Low education, low manners folks. I understand that the have to rise at 5:00 a.m., yet that does not mean that they have to holler and slam doors. Unfortunately the opposite also comes into play. Late-shift guys drinking in the parking lot and on the corridors late into the night with TV blaring.
The condition of my room was not good at all. Their was a water leak in the bathroom that created a large bubble in the paint above the shower. Also it was missing patches of carpet.
I was there just for 3 day convention and the location was a five dollar Uber ride away. Older building and dirty surrounding.
The phone in my room did not work and only one outlet worked. The people next door were loud, enjoying each other too much on a night I needed rest for the next day. Safety was a concern of mine.
The front desk worker was very nice. She asked why we were there and was able to carry on a conversation with a smile. There were a few workers on the grounds who also were plesant and said good morning to us. The room was not very clean. There was grime and spills on all of the drawer fronts. The sheets were clean and the bed soft but we were afraid to take our shoes off and walk on the carpet. The location was horrible. It did not appear to be a very nice part of town. Everything in the hotel seemed old and dingy. It needs a good updating. The breakfast was mediocre at best and there was no place to sit. It seemed like it was an after thought. We will never return and would not suggest this hotel to anyone.
Our room was very clean and the extras were great! Small Parking area and limited Handicap
Smelled like smoke. Wireless didn't work all week. Found cockroach in sink one morning.
It was close to plenty of places. It was affordable. It really reeked of cigarettes and smoke. :-/ The smell penetrated our clothes and luggage.
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.
Would never go back again. Police patrol on a regular drive by Scary, children are not safe.
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.
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.
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 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.
NOTHING! Disgusting motel!
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.
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.
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.
Many long stay customers. Construction workers? Had the atmosphere of a truckstop.
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.
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.
Free parking, easy to find, fast to take local transportation. Breakfast.
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.
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.
Front desk support. Parking lot close to the apartment, many people flow in/out and than to much car noises and people talking.
I've stayed here every fifth week for business. The owner Danny cares about his hotel. He is friendly as well as the staff. The room is always perfectly cleaned. Since I always request a room way in the back and upstairs, I feel especially safe there and it is quiet with the exception of airport noise in morning. During the week they are a lot of construction workers who overnight there. Basically, they are quiet since they have to get up early to work. There are 2 freeways nearby which is very convenient and also a Denny"s right in the parking lot!
Hotel was clean, staff very friendly and helpful. I have a bad knee and they only had upstairs available and the staff took my luggage and brought an iron to my room and assured me to just call for any needs. price was too high. The only thing available for the day we needed so had to go with them. But would not pay that price if booking in advance.
Staff were very pleasant. Room was poorly maintained. Door lock worked about one try in three. Room lights were mostly smashed. TV didn't work. Even the dresser was dysfunctional - drawers were broken.
Horrid Your booking
Excellent personal service, called and set up taxi service. Wake up call at 4am right on time.
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.
Nothing Strange people knocking on our door for drugs. It was gross. I was afraid to sit on anything. This was the true definition of scummy.
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.
Room was satisfactory, served our purposes for the weekend, pool was great, staff was very accomodating, thankyou.
The mexican restaurant on site is a plus . The location was terrible
big and clean room, nice shower, easy to acces nothing
affordable, quiet and accesible. the staff at the lobby were uncourteous.
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
Location was close to where we needed to go. & I do like to have microwave & fridge in room even though we didn't use it Dirty dirty dirty..!!! Yucky stained walls, mold in bathroom, carpet felt grimy, beds not too comfy... All I wanted was a bath but was too grossed out by dirtiness to soak there..
The complementary breakfast and the staffs No elevators and oldness of the hotel
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.

The staff was very friendly and Made genuine efforts to recommend restaurants in the surrounding area.
Price, location all excellent. Quality of room compared to advertisement photo accurately. Some street noise, perhaps remodel which was good could have installed sound reducing windows. I was ok however I live with people who would have been annoyed. Outside of room, facility was a bit plain; however, much cheaper than other hotels in area. In my opinion you're getting a champagne light room in a beer facility on a beer budget.
Have to admit, I only stayed here because all hotels were completely booked during my last minute business trip to the valley. I was pleasantly surprised. Rooms were clean and ample. Service was great. I would stay again.
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
