My 4-star is based on the value for the area. This is not a romantic or posh hotel at all. It is basic and it does basic well. The layout is that of a motel, which is good because you pretty much need a car (there is a bus line though if you need). The rooms were updated largely, with... More

Spacious room, decent price and good central location. We used this as a stop off before setting off to half moon bay to start our Highway 1 coastal drive. 5 minute drive from Stanford University but a very quiet area with not much to do.

I hesitate to share such a good find because we will certainly hope to get a reservation if visiting Stanford again! The distance from campus was quite reasonable given that we had a car. Clean, comfortable beds. Breakfast: cereal, fruit, coffee, sweet rolls, juice. Wireless worked. The suite was perfect for our family, 2 rooms sharing a bath. Best of... More

I stayed here overnight while in Palo Alto recently. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the room was clean and quiet, albeit a bit dated. I was surprised when I actually saw the place, as the web site could give one the impression that this was a small "boutique" hotel. It is far from boutique, but it is clean... More

I spent just a couple of nights at the Hotel Parmani and it was a very pleasant experience. The rooms are comfortable, there is everything you need, nice breakfast, convenient location. But most of all I appreciated how friendly and helpful the staff at the reception is. This is a small family-owned business and there you really feel a warm... More

Awesome place to stay. The rooms are really nice and clean and the employees are extremely nice and understanding. I have stayed at this hotel twice and I have always stayed at the two bedroom suite. It's very spacious and I love it.

The location is great for visitors to Stanford, but otherwise the place is underwhelming. Shower was a trickle of alternating very hot, then very cold water. Remote control was worn and barely worked. Breakfast was just some cereal.
