Some of the rooms were very small and breakfast was very limited. I liked the decor and the location was excellent for us. The staff was friendly and the rooms were updated and clean. I would stay there again.

This place is great. Free hot and cold breakfast (bacon, eggs, bagels and cream cheese, etc), a large and spacious hot tub spa in the courtyard the can fit 20+ people so there is always room, and a firepit that is lit well into the night. The rooms are very sharp and modern, a bit small but very comfortable. A...

Spent one night here. The person at check in gave us a tour of the hotel. She was very friendly. Everything was neat and clean. We were in room 101 which is an ADA compliant room. Big spaces, comfortable bed. Would book again. Breakfast included eggs, meats, cereal, coffee, juice, and more.

Upon check in we were welcomed by a lovely staff member who gave us a tour of the facilities. The room was clean and smelled fresh. The wifi was fast, the amenities were wonderful, and the complimentary breakfast was delicious. I would definitely stay here again, if not only to use the amenities we didn't partake in because we were...

This a great hotel and a very good value. it is close to everything and the staff was awesome. It is close to shopping and Stanford. The breakfast is superb and the rooms are very clean and modern. The rates are much better on weekends than during the week, but I would certainly recommend this hotel at anytime.

These folks are really making an effort and it is paying off. First, I'm on the road a bunch and so I stay at my fair share of hotels. This one was in my price point and at just the right location for my work this time. From what the front desk person said this used to be a hotel...

Dear PuppetArt, Thank you for such a wonderful and detailed review of your stay with us a couple of weeks ago.

I was in town for an interview and even though I arrived late, the staff took great care of me. The rooms were amazing in style AND function. Breakfast was fantastic with plenty of options all around. The front desk staff was helpful when I asked about the area should I get the job offer. That' helped a lot! I...

I am spending the next five nights in Menlo Park to attend a short executive program at Stanford University. The hotel is a nice conversion of the street sided motor inn but the designer has done a great job. The lobby and public facilities are small but practical. I was very impress with the room design, simple and easy to...

Dear Topperitalthai, Thank you for your nice review and especially for mentioning Jordan's service and personality. He is one of the original opening staff from September 2015 and moved quickly from houseman to front desk host. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and our convenient location to Stanford and Safeway. Warm regards, Gary Sterman

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.

Dear Ferolg2017, Thank you for taking a moment to send us your comments.

Dear Bevo, Thank you for your review and for speaking about your experience when travelling with others. When our local owners designed the hotel, they did so in order to offer multiple seating areas to gather with friends. From the indoor billiard and 'orange' circular living room, to the outdoor spa and fire pit. This year we are adding s'mores...
