If all you're looking for is a place close to the Stanford stadium and a pillow then this place is ok. Other than that it's garbage.

I am here on business and a majority of the hotels are booked this week. I am on my third night here and not impressed with this Motel. The rooms are very small and unless you want people looking in your window you must keep your curtains drawn so your room is dark and dreary. I noticed tonight when I... More
