Room was ready. Guests next door smoking outside. Guest in room was shouting to guest smoking outside. Later, 11:30 pm, a loud smoking party ensued. Called front desk clerk to let him know. Rather than intervene, he invited me to leave.

Clean hotel. We got a non-smoking room and I was with my mom and sister. Safe location, daily housekeeping. The owner helped us with late check-in and also received a fax on our behalf! Definitely recommend staying here.

Like to stay here. Very clean and quiet! I sleep during the day and get good rest at this hotel. Would recommend for anyone wanting to stay in Palo Alto and be near Stanford University or Stanford Hospital and Clinics.

Well this is one for the record books. There were five of us and we had reserved 3 rooms as we were staying in the city visiting a friend in the hospital. We arrived at 10 pm tired from a long day at the hospital. A young man at the front desk was helping a customer in front of me... More

Rooms updated & very clean. Came with microwave, mini frig, flat screen tv. Room was toward back on first level so no outside noise. Yes breakfast consisted of 2 sweet rolls, OJ & coffee but who could expect more with such a reasonable rate! Close to restaurants and grocery stores. Front desk & staff very friendly. I'd definitely stay here... More

My 11 month old daughter suddenly required a hospital stay so we could not travel as planned. Because this happened with such little notice I missed the cancellation window and was forced to pay $154 to not stay here. If they won't offer any help for people who have a baby in the hospital, what will they help with? Do... More

As Stanford alumni, we find this is the best value in the area. Priced at $115-150 (depending), it's rooms are more spacious and have better furniture. Fully equipped and well-run. Good lights for reading.

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights as a part of a business trip. My colleague was a couple of doors down. I found my room to be very comfortable, the bed was comfortable and clean and the climate control was not too noisy but managed to keep the room at a stable temperature. The internet connection was excellent... More

Renovated rooms, incl fridge & micro. Unfortunately, I didn't like too many things...and I'm not spoiled. Eventually, we left the hotel after three nights, moved to a better & cheaper hotel in Mountain view. I would rate this facility as a low grade ** motel - Motel6 is better... Breakfast is a poor joke: provided an un-fresh danish & called... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night a few days ago while visiting Stanford University. Except for the carpet that needs to be replaced, the room was very clean everywhere else. There is no continental breakfast but there is a nice restaurant right next door. Overall, this hotel has the feel of a "motel", but it was very decent.... More
