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.
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
Quiet No access to sodas after certain time
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
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.
Dirty and noisy. I was there for five days and had to get new key cards twice because they stopped working.
Nothing It's vert old and dirty, so smelly. I couldn't tell what was in the sink!
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.
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.
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.
Service was friendly, quick and simple. Happy to help with directions. The water temperature in the sink was didn't get cold.
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...
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.
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.
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
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 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.
NOTHING! Disgusting motel!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
affordable, quiet and accesible. the staff at the lobby were uncourteous.
big and clean room, nice shower, easy to acces nothing
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.
Room was satisfactory, served our purposes for the weekend, pool was great, staff was very accomodating, thankyou.

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
Bathrooms redone Bad wifi
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.
