We needed a place for an overnight stay before my visit to Stanford Medical Center. After searching through TripAdvisor, I found this place. The price was great, but I was somewhat skeptical based on the pictures. However, all the positive reviews on TripAdvisor gave me the confidence to give it a go We were not disappointed. We arrived about 8pm.... More

I was very pleased by my stay here. It's in a good location, close to multiple different restaurants and the bus to to Stanford. The room was very clean and spacious (there was actually a bedroom with an ajoining living room). There was a mini-fridge which was great. The price was one of the best in the Palo Alto area,...

After a first trip to Stanford for tests and staying in a lesser hotel, this was a wonderful find. Great price and great for handicap access. Really nice to get olive garden take out across the street after a long drive. Then the special bonus surprise was the location less than a block from the medical center where i had... More

Don't let the 1960's-motel exterior put you off. The Coronet has been recently renovated, and its rooms are much better than many four-star hotels we've stayed in. Our room was quite large, with two queen beds, a desk with good chair, comfy easy chair, kitchenette, small dining table and two chairs. Throughout, lighting was excellent. (Aren't you getting tired of... More

Stayed here for 2 nights on a business trip. Most of my group stayed at the poorly reviewed Sheraton just down the road at $400/night. I opted for the Coronet at $150/night. The rooms were much nicer than the exterior (which looks like your typical cheap roadside motel) suggests, so don't let outward appearance throw you. POSITIVES: The rooms appear... More

The motel is a good location for people visiting Stanford. The rooms are not fancy but very clean and comfortable. Our room had a microwave, coffee maker and room-sized refrigerator. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful. The motel is located on a very busy street so there is quite a bit of traffic noise but it is a great... More

This motel doesn't look like much from the outside, but the staff is accommodating and the rooms are clean and comfortable. My room had a good bed, desk, easy chair, plenty of lighting, and a kitchen area that included a microwave, a toaster, and a refrigerator. This older property is designed so windows at the back of the unit open... More

I needed to stay overnight before reporting to Stanford the next day. The Coronet has a great location and represents wonderful value if you need to stay in Palo Alto. The room was very clean and comfortable.

Stayed 1 night before surgery at Stanford. Throughout the evening, I kept being amazed at how clean and comfortable everything was. Service desk was awesome, took the time to go over everything and a nice personalized note with...(drum roll please) a couple pieces of Ghirardelli chocolate and bottled water were waiting! Coffee maker, micro, fridge, toaster in the room, with... More

I stayed here for almost a month in August this year and I couldn't have hoped for a better accommodation. I was a visiting researcher in Stanford during this time, which puts on a free bus service, stopping practically on your doorstop, taking you to campus with connections to downtown and the surrounding area. It has great access from SFO;... More
