Travelodge San Jose Review
We chose this hotel, as it was the cheapest accommodation within walking distance of HP Pavilion, about half a mile. We also soon discovered that there are plenty of places to eat within a few blocks of the hotel. A few of the places are Baskin Robbins, Quizno's, an Italian restaurant, a Chinese restaurant, Greenlee's Bakery, and a Starbucks.
The hotel itself has a pool, but it was too cold to go in while we were here. Our room was a little cramped, with two queen-sized beds, a table with two chairs, a television cabinet, and a fridge with microwave on top. The bathroom was barely bigger than the closet, which was small but sufficient. The shower was a walk-in one, and we had a hard time figuring out how to get hot water, but once we did figure it out, the water stayed hot for the entire shower. The worst thing we found was the inaccessibility to the electrical outlets. The only one we could reach to use was the one in the bathroom, which is not my favorite place to charge a computer, especially when there is no place to put the computer besides the sink or on top of toilet. We paid $72 a night and learned that we should have paid a few more dollars to stay at a closer hotel to HP Pavilion with better accommodations. We did make our reservations close to our trip, so maybe if we made them earlier, we could have paid less, and then it would be more worthwhile.
