We stayed with our two small children. There was plenty of space in our room for a pack n play and toddler cot. We loved the idea of using the fire pit and jacuzzi below, but it was raining. Breakfast in the morning was fabulous. We would love to stay again.

Check-in is at 3pm but I arrived early at 2pm. The hotel was very accommodating to welcome us even if we checked in early. Upon entering the hotel room it had a strong odor of air freshener but it dissipated. The room was small but clean and comfortable. We loved the free amenities - fire pit, long jacuzzi and billiards...

I never had a better stay in a hotel in all my life. The place is wonderful, the staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms are clean and cozy. But the most important thing is the whole atmosphere – quiet and comfortable, just like at home. I strictly recommend this hotel to everyone who is planning his visit.

Great place to stay near Stanford. Small but has everything you need. Breakfast is small but hot with eggs, bacon, sausages, pastry, oatmeal. Hot tub is very nice. Parking is ample. Nearby safeway market and pharmacy. 5 min drive to Stanford. Staff extremely helpful

Dear Florayiseulk, Thank you for your kind words about your stay at Hotel Lucent. The breakfast is small by some standards and hope that you did find it fit your needs. Please let me know if you have suggestions about what you would like to see added to the buffet. Warm regards, Gary Sterman gary.sterman@hotellucent.com

Hotel Lucent is amazing. I loved it. Simple yet amazing. It is the "W" but stripped down to essentials and with a warm and friendly functional feel. My friend lived on the road next to the hotel and the area was nice quaint and with easy convenient access to San Francisco.

Our stay at hotel Lucent was...Pleasant. the hotel has very comfortable, but Spartan accommodations with a nice level of finish for an updated "motel" type property. The staff were exceptionally friendly. The housekeeping staff are efficient (almost too efficient...If you want to sleep in make sure you have a do not disturb sign!). Breakfast is very basic...But fine for a...

Starbucks coffee machine available 24/7. Conveniently located around the corner from Stanford Shopping Centre. A short hop to SFO international airport. Very new installations, friendly staff. The ideal place to stay if you have business to do in Silicon Valley.

In the heart of Menlo Park, this is an updated, clean, and well priced hotel with friendly and helpful staff! This is a must stay! The breakfast was an added plus and we enjoyed the billiards area in the evenings.
