We arrived 11pm on a Friday night after exhausting ourselves looking for places in San Fran. The people running the place were lovely, welcoming and very helpful. We got the train into San Fran from this motel for the day.

We booked a double room at a great rate compared to most of the surrounding hotels. We were pleasantly surprised by the size, accommodations, and cleanliness offered. I dropped my bags off early and the staff kindly brought it to my room. Heidi was very warm and made check-in and check-out smooth. 4.5/5 would stay again

The room I stayed in was fantastic. Large flat screen t.v was great. Was able to enjoy a couple games from the World Cup on it. Staff was very helpful. A big Thank you to Heidi at front desk for being so patient. Definitely will be back to stay another night.

The motel is at a very convenient location with ample parking. The location is very convenient to reach by car and with easy access to public transportation. If you are planning a trip to Palo Alto / Stanford, it is possible to use public transportation for the entire stay. A short walk to the California Ave Train Station puts you... More

The only pre-concern was whether the amount of traffic on Camino Real would be a problem, but it was very quiet at night. Clean, efficient, comfortable; the mini-kitchen was great; nice to be able to open windows! The Marguerite stop is 1/4 block away, Cal Train a few blocks down California, safe area for walking, and Izzy's Bagels around the... More

Simply put, this is a clean, excellently-maintained, and reasonably-priced (considering the area) motel. We think it is charming... an old-style but very well updated motel, where you park right by your room, with a small pool in the parking lot. We have stayed here often and it is our first choice when visiting Stanford. There are many excellent, reasonably-priced restaurants... More

Clean, friendly, comfortable. We will stay here every time we are in Palo Alto. This motel is right next door to Olive Garden Restaurant and down the street from many more! Five minute drive to Stanford hospital and close to Stanford Shopping center.

We found this location perfect when my husband had early morning appointments for Stanford Medical Center and while he was in the hospital there. The free Stanford Marguerite shuttle stops just across the side street and takes you directly to the hospital or the cancer clinics. The kitchenette (small refrigerator, sink, and microwave) was helpful. The room was exceptionally clean... More

Conveniently located, friendly and accommodating staff. Stayed in #4, it was kind of small, but clean. Kitchenette, work area, free Wi-Fi, king size bed and bathroom, no issues. Fair price for the area, most hotels in the area anywhere near Stanford are way over priced. Restaurants, gas stations and other businesses close by. I would have given it a 4... More

Sorry, but TA's are overrating Coronet. It is clean, with comfortable beds and is nicely situated near a street with stores and restaurants, but it's a motel, which cannot compete with quality hotels, located on a very busy highway so earplugs are recommended. The units are reasonably sizable but the heating source is located in the living room/kitchenette area so... More
