This place was disgusting. Don't do it! The room was large but the aircon had mould in it. The chassis had disgusting stains and the bed just a basic sheet and looked like you might catch something. The for deadlock was difficult to work and everything looked old.

This is a very old run-down hotel. Peeling paint. No air conditioning in most rooms. No double locks on door. Poor security. Broken electrical outlets. No screens on windows to keep bugs out. Really too bad as this is a decent location near Stanford University that could cater to visiting parents and alumni coming in for the sporting events.

We also appreciate the Kitchen with a stove, refrigerator and... More

When rating this hotel, reviewers should definitely keep in... More

My boyfriend and I had a horrible experience from the start! We arrived around 10pm and I went to the "front desk" to get our keys... No one was there, but I spotted an envelope with my name on it. I opened it and found a key for room #4... As I turned around to spot our destination, I saw... More

I could have overlooked many of the cons for this hotel if it weren't for the non-functional deadbolt and a window that didn't close completely. Pros: This hotel is close enough to walk to the Stanford shopping center, but it's along haul to the hospitals or main campus if you're walking. Short car or bike ride. Spacious room with kitchen....
