This hotel was much better than what we've expected. It had a ‘'wow'' effect on us when we've just entered the room. Given it’s only 2.5 stars we were expecting just a basic set up and amenities. The room was so spacious! With had two queen beds, plenty seating, a nice table for writing, a tv, nice separate space with... More

The reception was friendly and fast. Good value old hotel with no frill basic room and cereal breakfast. Noise from upstairs second floor to be expected. Good parking and close to campus. Walking distance to fish restaurant, Chipotle, Olive Gardens, and Old Mac.

Clean and cozy hotel, altough it is right in front Camino Real it is not too noisy. Close to Stanford, to train station (be aware of timetable because it is NOT like the subway or the BART) and to bus stations. Tip: There's a Frys kinda hidden in the street that ends in front of the McDonald's and is beside... More

In Palo Alto, there are just not a lot of good options for the business traveller. While this property is not terrible, it is not the right place for someone on business. The owners call this property a hotel, but in reality it is a motel and the quality of the furnishings reflect that. This is OK if you need... More

Our room came equipped with a coffee maker, microwave and mini fridge. The bed wasn't the most comfortable, but very comparable to most hotels. Very quiet location. Light breakfast offerings in the office area in the morning. Nice option if you're attending a Stanford event.

Comfortable and clean motel in Palo Alto. Very friendly and welcoming staff at reception. Very fast wi-fi. Basic facilities though, don't expect luxury. Didn't try the breakfast, there are many nearby options (especially on California Avenue).

We stopped in this hotel choosing almost randomly, and we were nicely impressed by the hotel room, clean and comfortable, and the kind welcome. It appeared to us better than the average motel and reasonably priced. The free breakfast is basic.

Hotel front desk and maids are very friendly and helpful. They were helpful with arranging taxis and recommending deli shops and restaurants. Hotel rooms are very modern and clean. Comfortable beds. Room has microwave, fridge and Starbucks coffee! Great location. We recommend this hotel highly. We stayed here twice in the last month and will stay here again.

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.
