The title of my review pretty much sums this place up. Its clean, the staff are nice, the rooms are in pretty good shape, but the hotel is old and the rooms seem pretty dark and have odd layouts. Some quirks included my bathroom being hidden away behind a wall and the parking lot being impossibly tight in some spots.... More

The Residence in Palo Alto Mountain View is very conveniently located right on El Camino Real, which is the main street for pretty much anything anywhere between San Jose and San Francisco. I've stayed here 4 times already in 2015 and the hotel has a number of great features. The rooms are very quiet, the staff is incredibly friendly, helpful... More

Very good place to stay. Rooms are really good with kitchen and dining table. Breakfast is also good. Only thing is the place is not very kid friendly. They don't have kids play area and other facilities for kids.

We stayed at this Marriott for about 90 days and were treated badly. I am a Gold Marriott member, but still I could sense very curt behavior from most of their staff, especially their Manager (Amy). I could evidently see Caucasians being treated with much more respect. Will give you some instances: While having breakfast, the milk in their counter... More

Very pleasant sleeping. Large rooms, felt like an apartment. Would definitely return. Full size kitchen and bar stools allowed for having friends over to eat, drink and enjoy time with. Parking was free and easy

Stayed here for business. The check in process was easy and the front desk clerk was very welcoming. This is an older Residence Inn, in which you enter the room from the outside. These properties are usually dated and showing signs of their age, however, this property seemed well maintained. The room looks like it has been updated at some... More

I stayed here for two nights. The carpet in my room was so dirty that I kept my shoes on all the time. The carpet in the dining room area was filthy. I didn't want to think what the kitchen might have looked like! The workout room was also filthy without any towels or water cups. And here the kicker... More

This is a decent and functional hotel near Mountain View and Palo Alto. There is nothing truly exceptional about it, but the suites are simple and functional. From the outside, this hotel doesn't look like much. It is right on El Camino (which can be a little noisy). It is conveniently across the street from Panera, Walgreens, Starbucks, Jamba Juice,...

We had a very pleasant two-night stay here. Very clean and spacious with a full kitchen, essentially like being in a studio apartment for a few nights. The bed was also quite comfortable and the shower head in the bathroom was outstanding (may be a random thing to put in here but I love a good showerhead!). The staff was... More

I've been staying in this hotel since 2007 when visiting Palo Alto on business. In general I'm happy with the hotel. I'm giving it 3 stars for service, not because of "bad" service, but more due to lack of services offered. Rooms are well maintained. Some A/C units are noisy, but management is helpful with providing another room if that... More
