“Very pleasant stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2011

We were very pleased to find such a comfortable, clean, quiet and well-equipped room at a reasonable price in Palo Alto. The owner was very courteous and helpful and the breakfast was simple and adequate.

This is the price range of motel where you go because you need a place to stay, not because you expect it to be nice; the most you hope for is no horror stories. The upshot: No horror stories to report, this time anyway.

Convenient location for Stanford. Room was fairly clean but not functional. No hair dryer, many outlets did not work, not enough towels, and key failed to work several times. Only the location could justify this overpriced motel.

I guess this would be serviceable for many people (and it was judging from the number of cars in the parking lot). However, you can find something much better for about $10 more anywhere along El Camino. I asked for non-smoking and got the "maybe if we spray enough air freshener around it will mask the smell" room.
