I somehow missed the fact they were under construction. Let's just say I was very surprised. The exterior is a mess. The parking lot is small, don't go out too late. When we went to check in the person at the desk could not log in to the system to check us in. Once she was able to check us... More

Here's the good and the bad. This MOTEL is under renovation. When it is done, it might be worthy to stay at...just not now. Good: * The staff here is very friendly and supportive. We asked to be moved from the ground floor to an upstairs room and they accommodated us without issue. In fact, as we took off for... More

My company has a contract and the Menlo Park Inn fit it which is the only reason I stayed here. I was concerned after reading earlier reviews about construction noise. I stayed there 3 weekdays and there was not a bit of construction underway. But it looks like the workers just left mid-project; electric boxes open, no shingles, plywood barricades,... More

I booked this hotel based on pictures on the website, but the place is under construction and there was scaffolding all over the place. I also asked for a quiet room on the upper floor. I was on the 2nd floor, but the room was the first one ON EL CAMINO REAL, which is the main, busiest street in the... More

The Menlo Park Inn is in the middle of a major remodel, and even though the exterior is in process, my stay was perfect. For my purposes, the location cannot be topped, and the staff are friendly and always helpful. Great place.

This is a motel with construction every day from 9-5. The outside of the motel is covered in construction materials (including scaffolding) and you have to watch for nails in the parking lot (we found two). The workers smoke outside the rooms and leave cigarettes all over the parking lot and in the planters (filled with dead plants). The breakfast... More

Who would want to stay in a construction zone for a week? Nearly every morning I was awakened by hammering, electric saws, workers yelling to each other and a compressed air drill. When I opened the curtains I was greeted by a huge construction bin full of building debris. It was a very greedy decision to keep this place open... More

We stay in Palo Alto several times a year, so we've tried most of the places in the area. Like many others, this is a renovated motel from the past. For nearly $200/night, I expect a tad more, even in this expensive area. Despite the Xperience Manager when I brought some points to his attention telling me to contact him... More

Hello Alice, Thanks for giving us the honest review of the property. Parking is definitely one of the issues we're addressing during the exterior transition. I'm looking into the products we use in the rooms and I'm seeing that what we have has an olive oil base. I'm not sure if Soy is a part of it, but I'll definitely... More

Yes they NEED to finish the outside ASAP!!! But the rooms are great for the cheap price. Very clean and they thought of the little stuff. Happy stay and would come again. Loved the cookies and wifi and lots of channels. Super clean and comfy beds. But fix the outside yesterday guys.
