    We were visiting Stanford, about 15 minutes from here. It was clean and quiet. Good restaurants in Menlo Park about 10 minutes from here. There is a pool, no hot tub. Had a tiny patio with table on premium king room.

    Yes! Breakfast isn't anything fancy but there is fruit, yogurt, oatmeal, muffins. Fresh coffee all day and cookies in the afternoon.
