This is a slightly crummy hotel. The bright spots are the front desk staff, who were very friendly and helpful; the relatively large size of the rooms; and a showerhead that actually had enough water coming out of it (a rarity in CA). Otherwise the hotel was not great. The room was a little dirty in places (e.g., there was... More

I've stayed at a number of the hotels in this price range in the Palo Alto area. This is as clean as any of them and quieter than most since it is set away from the main drag a ways. There is an average breakfast table and internet is free. The parking is free and easy. The rooms were small... More

We stayed for five nights because they are pet friendly (with a fee), close to family and provide a decent breakfast. Our room was a standard king and a little cramped with the furnishings required to maintain their hotel ratings but very nicely remodeled at some point. The room was very clean and the room staff attentive to our needs.... More

We selected this hotel because of the very reasonable price. We are seniors living on Social Security, so price is important. The bed and bath linens were spotlessly clean as were the bathroom and vanity areas. The owner/manager was cordial and helpful in our selection of a restaurant. My only suggestion tto the management of this motel is to replace... More

Inexpensive & convenient are the two best features of this motel. My room was very dirty - carpet had not been vacuumed in a long time, and the bathroom floor was real dirty. I did not take off my shoes! They do serve breakfast, which I did not have time for - so cannot comment on that. Management should check... More

We stayed 4 nights in the big corner room (134). The room was quite big and comfortable for three persons. The beds (one king and one queen) were soft and very comfortable. However, the WIFI was an issue. The signal strength varies and is not stable. After a few disconnections, I tried to get help from the office. They were... More

The Quality Inn is your basic budget hotel. I was in town for business - the room was clean, the water pressure was good in the shower - that's pretty much all I needed. There was also a very large tv in the room and free breakfast (muffins/coffee/juice) in the office in the morning.

Clean and quiet room. Plenty of parking and fair rate for the location. A very nice stay. Accommodation and overall service was good. Breakfast is adequate and location is convenient in accessing freeways to go around the Bay Area.

Although the room was small, it did fit all the essentials you need. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. A plus is the refrigerator, internet access and a microwave (which we did not use). Because of having the fridge, microwave and coffee maker all in the already small bathroom, one had to move the whole coffee tray and... More

Management needs to enforce smoking rules consistently. Trying to avoid the extra $100.00 smoking charge our next door neighbors decided to set up a smoking area right outside the door where the smoke became our problem. We got an apology from the front desk. Don't recommend this one.
