Hotels for 18 year olds in San Jose

A curated list of hotels that allow 18 year olds to check-in

Tomas Mazowski A list by Tomas Mazowski. This guide was last updated in June 2024.

If you're under 21, you might face some challenges finding hotels, as many require guests to be at least 21 to check-in. This age requirement is typically in place for legal reasons, to lower insurance rates, or because they don't believe young people will be able to behave responsibly during their stay. It mainly applies to hotels in the US, as in Europe they are usually more relaxed and consider guests adults from the age of 18.

To make finding a hotel easier, I've put together this list of hotels and stays in San Jose that allow guests aged 18 and up. You can see it here below - hope you find it useful!
