Well this is one for the record books. There were five of us and we had reserved 3 rooms as we were staying in the city visiting a friend in the hospital. We arrived at 10 pm tired from a long day at the hospital. A young man at the front desk was helping a customer in front of me...

Rooms updated & very clean. Came with microwave, mini frig, flat screen tv. Room was toward back on first level so no outside noise. Yes breakfast consisted of 2 sweet rolls, OJ & coffee but who could expect more with such a reasonable rate! Close to restaurants and grocery stores. Front desk & staff very friendly. I'd definitely stay here...

My 11 month old daughter suddenly required a hospital stay so we could not travel as planned. Because this happened with such little notice I missed the cancellation window and was forced to pay $154 to not stay here. If they won't offer any help for people who have a baby in the hospital, what will they help with? Do...

As Stanford alumni, we find this is the best value in the area. Priced at $115-150 (depending), it's rooms are more spacious and have better furniture. Fully equipped and well-run. Good lights for reading.

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights as a part of a business trip. My colleague was a couple of doors down. I found my room to be very comfortable, the bed was comfortable and clean and the climate control was not too noisy but managed to keep the room at a stable temperature. The internet connection was excellent...

Renovated rooms, incl fridge & micro. Unfortunately, I didn't like too many things...and I'm not spoiled. Eventually, we left the hotel after three nights, moved to a better & cheaper hotel in Mountain view. I would rate this facility as a low grade ** motel - Motel6 is better... Breakfast is a poor joke: provided an un-fresh danish & called...

We stayed at this hotel for one night a few days ago while visiting Stanford University. Except for the carpet that needs to be replaced, the room was very clean everywhere else. There is no continental breakfast but there is a nice restaurant right next door. Overall, this hotel has the feel of a "motel", but it was very decent....

This is a cute place to stay, and I enjoyed the cottage feel of the room. It is an older motel, but the rooms were clean and comfortable. The continental breakfast was insignificant; however, the location was great. The owner is very friendly, and I will stay there again whenever I am in the area.

stayed at this hotel a few days ago for one night. convenient to Stanford Med center. Room was clean and comfortable. The mattress must have had a plastic liner on it so that was a little annoying. Small pastries were in the room for a quick bite in the morning so that was nice. For the prices all around the...

Ok, I was skeptical at first, but I needed a quick last minute over night and took the chance. For $99.00 in Palo Alto.....It is a very old motel. They have refurbished all the right things. The windows have been replaced and it was very quiet, even right on the El Camino. There were black out drapes on the windows....
