I don't know about super shuttle but,

there is a public transportation shuttle that is free, it drops you off at the light rail station

then the light rail has a stop right in front of the convention center which only costs $2 for a one way ride for an adult.

I took a cab from the San Jose airport last year. The fare was about $25. 
Is anyone else flying into San Jose Friday afternoon? Perhaps we could cut costs by sharing a cab.

If you have time I'd definitely check the hotels' websites, or even just call them.

ETA: Hotels are really really friendly and helpful. Don't be scared!

The bus line + lightrail is going to be your friend in this case. They run pretty consistently on weekdays, less so on weekends.

You can take the free airport shuttle to a lightrail stop (i forget which one it is specifically) and that light rail stop just after the 1st and Santa Clara stop is within walking distance to the convention center, although it might be awkward carrying luggage that distance...
