I really wanted to like this hotel. The staff were all super friendly and helpful - but when you have no idea where the lobby is, you're not off to a good start. No signs, just sliding glass doors to a bar - and the lobby is the register at the bar. Ok, that's fine. I loathe staying on the...

I loved this motel for business. It was on the main road and surrounded by restaurants and shopping. Perfect location for going to Stanford. Best re-do I've ever seen. It felt hip and modern, simple yet tasteful. As a woman, I felt very safe. The staff are friendly, which is so important to me. The dinner menu needs some work....

Nice and convenient hotel with a price that is a little higher for the property but reasonable for Palo Alto. Bare bones buts very comfortable. The room was a good size, great bathroom and large tv. The staff was very attentive. My only complaint is that the sheets could have been of a better quality. They were scratchy and should...

Maybe its not fair to write this review so early...I've just arrived less than two hours ago from Atlanta. I wasn't sure what to expect when I booked this hotel. My company's travel website still had the old Quality Inn photos showing but the hotel's website had such beautiful pictures, I wondered if it was too good to be true....

The Nest hotel is quite new and fancy. Super clean, breakfast is good and people are nice and friendly. The only desapointment was that the pool was not ready for use but it was shown as an atraction online.

This stylish motor hotel was perfect for our stay. Great location ,quiet and reasonably priced for Silicon Valley. The modern furnishings are chic and tasteful,the air conditioning quiet and the bed comfortable. The staff are exceptionally friendly and accommodating and we enjoyed relaxing over a glass of beer on the beautifully landscaped patio area at check in.

Great location, safer than staying elsewhere in SF. Food options nearby Would love to stay here again. HUGE flatscreen TV was a treat as well as the modern bathroom. One improvement they should make is... seal the doors better, a chilly draft was blowing in while I was there in winter.

I was so pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The place has been recently fully renovated. The rooms are first rate, and there is a cool outdoor patio. The place also had a great wine selection, which I did not expect. Combine that with a friendly staff and this place is my new go-to in Palo Alto.
