My stay was for attending surgery at Stanford Hospital. Location was within a mile for all. The Oasis was a great pizza and burger restaurant. The hotel is close to the mall, the University, and transportation. All are very convienent for a paraplegic. Some cautions go out to advise those in wheelchairs that the sidewalks are narrow and dangerous but... More

No issues with hotel/service/staff. All were fine, except that I thought the price was ridiculous. I suspect some serious gouging going on in Palo Alto. (I paid less for Best Westerns in NYC, Paris, Vienna...)

I recently stayed at this hotel and had an AWFUL experience! I left jewelry in the room and the housekeeping said they "didn't find it". Brianna Williams, the front office manager, was not helpful at all. In fact, was downright rude! They did nothing to help expect try to protect themselves. The jewelry had sentimental value and they couldn't have... More

The motel is very noisy, very dirty, the hot tub has been broken for 7 mos. ADA not honored. Reservation lost. Very expensive. Clerk rude. The advertising is deceptive. I felt extremely vulnerable in the tub. There was no grab bar. This was a very upsetting experience.

The room quality was very good, but the price was rather steep in my opinion. I slept very well. A nice continental breakfast was included. I would recommend this place to anyone traveling to the area.

Right off Stanford Campus, this is just what I needed during medical care of a loved one. It has clean rooms opening to an outside balcony, and a renovated lobby with quite a nice self-serve breakfast. I found it quiet, and the sleeping great. While it does not have room service, there is nearby delivery take out of very good... More

I stayed there for almost 1 week for business in Palo Alto and I would repeat. Pros: - Nice, cosy, and spacious rooms. As comfortable as being at home. - Very useful and friendly staff. - Probably the best place to say if you need to work/visit in Palo Alto: 3 min walking to Stanford shopping center, 5 min walking...

This hotel is nice and clean but borders a noisy street with a noisier train that runs in the morning and at night. The lobby was going through a remodel so the temporary lobby was set up in another room, which was OK. Staff was very friendly. The location to the Stanford campus is great!

I was reluctant to stay at a small hotel, with outdoor entries, but things have worked out well. The room was spotless, neat as a pin and newly renovated. While it is close to the street and the Caltrain runs close by, these noises did not disturb us and during the night, it was very quiet. Earplugs are provided for... More

Spacious two-queen bedroom with small table and two chairs, included desk with wi-fi available. Chose first floor room and experienced a quiet night's sleep. Large bathroom with separate room for two sinks and large mirror. Towels were very substantial and luxurious feeling. No restaurant on premises and ordered in from local restaurant whose menu was in room. Food excellent.
