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.
There is no lock to the restroom in the room.
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.
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! Disgusting motel!
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.
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.
customer service not good smoke dector buzzed all night couldnt get help at desk refrigerator didnt work the only positive didnt have bugs Everything will never stay again
Would never go back again. Police patrol on a regular drive by Scary, children are not safe.
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.
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.
Our room was very clean and the extras were great! Small Parking area and limited Handicap
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.
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.
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.
The AC stank like someone with necrotic body odour. And there was nothing they could do about it. I couldn't sleep well because of it (and I even tried keeping it off but it got too warm). Checked out a few days early, I couldn't stand it any longer.
Horrid Your booking
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.
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.
Room was satisfactory, served our purposes for the weekend, pool was great, staff was very accomodating, thankyou.
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.
Excellent personal service, called and set up taxi service. Wake up call at 4am right on time.
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 mexican restaurant on site is a plus . The location was terrible
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.
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
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.
big and clean room, nice shower, easy to acces nothing
affordable, quiet and accesible. the staff at the lobby were uncourteous.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.

The complementary breakfast and the staffs No elevators and oldness of the hotel
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
