San Jose's men's bathhouse
In the leafy, old-timey Rose Garden neighborhood but close to I-880 (exit The Alameda). The neighborhood is charming, and the Watergarden has real charms, too: A huge steam room with lots of dark corners is very popular, and the outdoor pool, jacuzzi and patio, all surrounded with well kept landscaping, is a wonderful oasis. Membership required; ranges from $39/year to $4/visit, plus a 12-hour room charge starting at $24. Lockers at additional charge. Weekday specials $7 (plus membership) from 10 am-3 pm. Tuesdays and Fridays are buddy nights--rooms and lockers 1/2 price. Thursdays are Latin nights, which makes sense given the city's huge and thriving Latino community. Discount coupons on website.

      Great clean beautifulllll place
      I do a monthly event there on the 1st Saturday of each month PORNSTAR when I first walked in I was shocked how beautiful it was, the staff is so friendly. You will feel like your in paradise here.

      Nice and clean.. and very well lit
      I have to say I really love this place and being so bright inside isnt for everyone but I like it. I prefer to see who is cruising around. Steamroom is very nice and was hit on almost instantly. Im a bit of a exhibitionist so i sit down without a towel and gently massage myself while others watch.. some chose to help out and if I may just let it happen with the right looking at acting man. Video room is okay.. same as steamroom, I like to not be covered and to give myself a good rubbing watching the videos. Lots of men like to just stand and watch, and others want to lend a hand. Never have a problem with anyone not taking NO for a answer... Def love that. I recommend this place to those who are not shy, and arent druggies. No offense to druggies.. just stay away and all is cool. I give Watergarden a 4 star. Love the outdoor pool and hot tub especially when the weather is nice

      More of a spa than a bathouse
      It seems almost politically incorrect to say anything negative about the Watergarden, but I will. Yes, it is beautifully clean and well maintained. My issue is, it isn't the best place for sex. Unlike Steamworks or Blowbuddies with lots of play areas, most of the areas at Watergarden are lounges, and not conducive to sex. And even trying to play in the play areas, like the porn TV room, is hard when you have 5 men standing at the door talking about their prostates for hours on end.

      Good for older guys
      I was impressed that, being in my 70s, I still felt relaxed and comfortable. It is easy to move around in the attractive environs and feel like you belong. People were smiling, and even though I am shy, I met a few great guys. I am anxious to go back and meet some new friends.

      Great place to relax
      You can hang out for some "fun" in the steam room or Big Screen TV room, or sit by a fireplace (on cold days) in a what looks like a upscale hotel lobby. They have a pool table if you are into that. And of course the cute little rooms to play in. If you like public play that is there too. Pool and Hot Tub area very nice. You find mostly respectful people there. I would say there is someone for everyone there. Older, Younger, any race, any fetish.

      Whenever business or pleasure takes me to the Bay Area, I always make it a point to spend at least one night at the Watergarden. The men who go there are nice looking, down to earth, and the place is immaculate. I go there, play, shower, then retire to my clean room when I am ready for a good night's sleep. It's the cleanest bathhouse I have ever visited.<br><br><i>This review was orginally posted on Bathhouseguides.com, which is now part of GayCities</i>
