I am looking for advice for a hotel/B&B in the San Jose area as a central location to do day trips to the mountains, beach, tours, etc. Will be staying for 7 days in late November. there will be 4 of us.
Getting a good deal through American Airlines but have to pick one hotel and travel from that location otherwise would just go without a full 7 day booking.
Also, is it advisable to rent a car and travel on own (part of AA travel deal) as opposed to purchasing bus excursions, tours,etc. from San Jose?
Any advise on who to contact for tours is greatly appreciated.
