Weekend show at Woodside Park, Hotel was close by and in a great area, very safe and good shopping at Stanford Mall. Hotel staff was great, rooms were clean and comfortable. Internet worked great and breakfast was good, great value and location!

There is some obvious history to this property. It has the bones of an older motor inn from the earlier days of El Camino Real. It's been nicely updated, and BW has created a nice place to stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We were staying with elderly family members, and they were very accommodating. Rooms are roomy... More

Great place to stay if you have to be near the Menlo Park or Palo Alto Area. Nice amenities and close to everything. Staff is accommodating and lodging is clean and comfortable. If you are sensitive to noise, bring earbuds. Stay may tend to be noisy to the El Camino Avenue traffic -- very noticeable.

Hello Brenda R, Thank you for sharing your experience at our hotel with the TripAdvisor community. We really appreciate your feedback! Unfortunately, being in close proximity to El Camino Real we do get a bit of road noise, however, we do provide complimentary earplugs at the front desk, available upon request. Thank you again for your time and comments! Best... More

I would probably not stay here again. The location was close to Stanford and the place was clean and staff was very nice. HOWEVER, the rooms were very small, bed not comfortable, and it was extremely noisy. There were a large group of students also staying there that were very loud well into the night (until 2:30 am to be... More

I was very pleasantly surprised by my recent stay. The hotel exterior is very clean and well maintained with nice landscaping. There is a bistro table and two chairs outside every room. My room was spotless and the bathroom was spacious and upgraded. There was a microwave and a new-ish, almost apartment-sized refrigerator. The air conditioning worked great and the... More

Clean hotel room, had a microwave and refrigerator, near Stanford Hospital. They will give a hospital discount if you or family member is hospitalized at Stanford. A little traffic noise because it is on the El Camino, so be prepared. Has a garage underground to park your vehicle, could be difficult to park a large SUV if the lot starts... More

Not really what was expecting considering 400 USD per night cost. For that cost, might as well stay at Westin Palo Alto, just down the road. The rooms are good and clean, but very noisy from the railway line just nearby and from the people walking on the rooms above. The breakfast area is tinny at reception. The staff is... More

This hotel bordering Menlo Park/Palo Alto cities is nicely located next to the Stanford Court Shopping Mall (very upscale shopping) good restaurants and the Stanford University Hospital and Clinics. It is a well kept hotel with a fitness area - three machines and a weight machine. Has a nice breakfast in the mornings. Staff is helpful with reservations and directions.... More

I had planned to stay at this hotel for 2 weeks, but left after 2 days. Clearly, Best Western is willing to label any dump "Plus" Like many of the hotels in the area, it is right on El Camino Real. It was VERY noisey -- there are many hotels on this street that are significantly quieter. The room was... More

I'm sure this is a supply & demand issue, but at $269 per night, I expected something more than a barely updated hotel from the 70's. Windows do not seem to be updated enough to keep out the train noise. The elevator from the under building parking (only a few spots for a big sub) was a bit scary, big... More
