I made a reservation for a week but could only tolerate the place for one night. The hotel is located on El Camino, an extremely busy street, which meant trucks and buses roaring by made the entire building shake. The room was dark and dreary. Breakfast was very basic and nothing special. Whenever I walked out to the parking lot,... More

I booked this hotel because of it's location to Stanford University. I read a lot of the reviews on various sites and was a bit skeptical, but I was pleasantly surprised. My mom and I were very happy with the accommodations; I booked the 2 bedroom queen suite and was VERY happy! Two bedrooms (well, 1 separate and the other... More

My flight from Vegas to SFO was delayed. As I was about to board the plane I got an email informing me that my credit card check was negative, to please provide a new one. I provided a new one immediately and was sent a confirmation. I landed in SFO at 12 at night only to find an email saying... More

This is definitely a motel. I just don't understand why this place did a horrible, cheap remodel? If your going to invest money, why not do it right? We only stayed one night and believe me one night was enough. We were charged over $200. We might as well have stayed at a travelodge or motel 6 for less money.

We stayed here when my mother was having heart surgery at Stanford. It is close to the hospital, comfortable beds, VERY CLEAN, and next door to The Fish House which is awesome, especially their happy hour! Hotel prices in Palo Alto are so high, and it was nice to find a place that had reasonable rates and was quiet. It... More

While on college visit found hotel to be a good value. It was a great location for Stanford and Palo Alto. It is motel style with outside stairways and doors, but the rooms were renovated very nicely! On fact at check in after 10, you check in at a window. Would stay here again.

We asked for a 5 star hotel and were told this hotel rated as a 4. Given the costs of rooms in the area, we booked with the agent for 2 nights. When we arrived the place was not clean, smelled and we refused the stay. For some reason the hotel would not cancel the two nights of reservation fees.... More

Dear ecparr, I apologize that your travel agent misinformed you regarding the star rating of our hotel. As you know, the hotel does not have any connection to your travel agency. A minimum amount of research online regarding our hotel would make it plainly clear that a 5-star hotel we are not. Unfortunately, we do not control the booking fee... More

Old fashion motel feel. Big room, clean, quiet but NOTHING fancy. Friendly staff. You get what you pay for when compared to other hotels in the area. Wifi does not work, and pillows on bed could use an upgrade. Good location, will stay there again when we come back to the area.
