I was in the hotel during a 5 night stay during a congress in Stanford University. The hotel is well situated in El Camino Real, a little set back so you don't perceive any noise at night. It has a nice pool and the breakfast is OK. The room and the bathroom were perfect, the only thing is that the... More

I can't fault the inn for how it is run. It's clean, the service is good and the rooms are ok (functional). But with no restaurant, thin walls and not much around it this isn't the best place to stay while over on business. This is probably standard for Inns but I'm used to a more hotel-like experience. The aircon... More

Very quiet location although close to Stanford. Staff personal and responsive. Breakfast that even my picky children liked. Good Wifi. Clean pool What more can I say? I made the right choice for a family of 4.

Nice pool, breakfast. Reasonable price for the area. Had breakfast sitting by the pool. Also had nice sitting area. Lovely toiletries also. Attendants were helpful with a fee problems that arose. I would recommend it.

A relaxing stay!!! This hotel felt like a little cottage with a lovely patio. The rooms were large and the staff was great. The hotel is set off of the road and is very quiet. We brought breakfast back to the room and it felt like home.

This hotel is set back from the busy road, so you don't hear the traffic. The room was so comfortable and clean! The bathroom was so modern and great amenities, which was surprising considering the unassuming appearance of this exterior of this hotel. The breakfast was very good with a wide selection of food. We had our 20 month old... More

I only stayed the overnight. The place was good. I liked: 1) free breakfast; 2) balcony + view to the patio/pool It could improve: The bathrooms, very average and small. I would recommend for a short business stay.

Great location, set back on El Camino Real so relatively quiet. Nice, clean rooms in peaceful setting. Nice breakfast offerings. Ambiance more like an apartment setting than a cookie cutter chain hotel room. Will be returning again next week.

My second stay was just as nice as the first one last fall. I had a queen room by the pool which was very pleasant. Comfortable bed, flat screen TV, Keurig coffee-maker plus microwave and frig, good easy Internet, nice staff and free breakfast included. You could easily spend a lot more in this part of the world and get... More

A total surprise in busy noisy Silicon Valley. This place is well set back from El Camino Real and totally free of road noise. Looks like an older motel, but the interior decor and furnishing are first class and really refined. Prices are very reasonable for the quality of accommodation. The free WiFi works really well, and the breakfast offerings... More
