The room was clean with good accommodations. The motel is quiet ant the price reasonable/ The wifi is good and the breakfast is more than correct. It's close to the Standford campus if you want to visit it.

Had an great experience staying here, after moving around in different motel/hotels in bay area we stumbled across this one, and the staff was so nice! When we had an issue it was fixed straight away. Such as the unexpected breakfast that was served every morning was over my expectations.

We only spent one night at this older motel, which had been extensively rehabbed. Although burdened by the old catwalk design and no pool, we were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and size of our room. We were "upgraded" to a handicapped room, which was quite nice. Breakfast was another fine amenity, with a selection of hot scrambled eggs and...

This Comfort Inn is quite typical of it's genre. I found it to be clean and comfortable. Our rooms were in the very back, which faced the playground of an elementary school. There was no session for the day we were there but assume it to be pretty lively when it is. The rooms could use a bit of remodeling....

Nice Motel with big rooms. Would be good to stay some days but we only stayed for one night after a flight. Breakfast was very good for a "standard motel" with warm eggs and sausage. So if you are in the area and you're looking for a place for some nights this will be a good and affordable choice.

Welcomed by a friendly staff member who quickly checked me in. The room was clean and spacious, albeit a bit dated. No issue logging into the WiFi. Conveniently located near Stanford's campus, which is worth walking through if you have never visited. Overall, nice hotel in a great location for a great price.

Palo Alto is just very expensive. It's hard to pay $300 for a motel basically. It was clean overall. Breakfast was not good but at least it was included. We were there to take our son to an appointment at Stanford so we only stayed one night. It is on a very busy street.

The rooms are very clean and the staff that runs the from desk are very kind and courteous. As long as you're not looking to bolster your ego you won't find a better hotel for the price in the area. Parking is just outside of your room, rooms are fresh and everything you would expect. The best highlight in my...

The staff was very welcoming and the breakfast was fantastic. It included eggs, sausages, tater tots, waffles, yogurt, fruit, cereal and pastries.The rooms were clean with comfy beds and nice bathrooms. The parking spaces are very narrow but otherwise a great motel.

We stayed here because it was close to Stanford. The hotel is close to El Camino Real and we were assigned a bottom floor room close to the office. We could hear the traffic from our room, and worse, anyone walking by with a wheelie suitcase or cars arriving and leaving could all be heard from the room. The room...
