3 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

Stayed here three nights while on business (reservations made by my company). My room was clean and met minimum requirements. However, walls (and floors) are paper thin so if you are a light sleeper this may pose a problem. Also be forewarned that the breakfast area is rather small, tiny in fact, and has the potential of being over crowded... More

A bit dated, but clean and convenient. Excellent breakfast. Very nice pool. Certainly good for both business people and families. A short walk to an upscale shopping center with excellent restaurants and stores.

Great location and nicely kept property. 75 yards to the Palo Alto sign on El Camino Street. 1.2 mile walk to a Stanford football game. Breakfast was coffee, juice and toast. I would have completely satisfied except the sheet had some blood on it from a previous guest. I only post this because if a hotel doesn't care enough to... More

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.

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
