The place was tidy and clean. Friendly reception. It has standard complimentary breakfast. The end room was quiet and comfortable. Conveniently located near Stanford and good foods. Will certainly stay again.

In general, I am always hesitant to book hotels with external room entrances, although many in this location are similar. I found the price to be quite comparable and the rooms were clean. In general it was quiet, although there was some noise from the neighboring room. My only negative was the shower, as there was very little water pressure.... More

I had a pretty nice time at the Comfort Inn, Palo Alto. The hotel is located close to Stanford and Palo Alto transit stop. If you want to visit the city, take a No.22 bus and then a Caltrain to San Francisco. The bus station right in front of the hotel. There's a Starbucks just 2 mins away and there... More

In for a Stanford workshop, we found this was close by and surprisingly inexpensive compared with other lodgings. It is an older building, so rooms are small, yet fit all the usual conveniences, such as micro-wave. The wifi worked fine for us. The place was up to Comfort Inn cleanliness. Unfortunately the room walls are not up to contemporary building,... More

I liked the location of the hotel and the rate was relatively good for the area. Basic motel set up with two floors surrounding the parking lot. Rooms size are not large, but clean and contain coffee maker, refrigerator, and microwave with a large TV. Requested a quiet room and received one. WiFi is free, but unstable (was always logging...

The hotel was conveniently located near Stanford for a conference I was attending. The room was clean and the Internet worked well. My only issue was that to be able to use my corporate credit card to check in I was told I had to have someone in my business office fax the front desk that I was authorized to... More

This is a modest motel we stayed in, along with many other parents, the night before our daughter was to move into her dormitory at Stanford for the start of the academic year. Rooms at this location can be had for a little over $100 at other times, but the demand for rooms at this particular time caused the rate... More

I had to find a hotel near my car repair shop, so I stopped here, based on the Comfort brand. The room was fine and Internet access good. But $170 for a night? A terrible value. Breakfast looked unappetizing -- I didn't bother with it.

After my wife negotiated a daily rate of $119 on the phone, we got stick shock when hit for $180 on check-in. The lady who spoke with my wife could not be found until our third day, and, remarkably, could not recall the conversation. If we had paid $119, I wouldn't have minded 1) the lack of a full length...

Even though their website says they have... wired internet, pop machine, onsite laundry...they don't. Laundry is over one block away. Pop machine, one block away at the quality inn. Wired internet...they refused to fix it even though it didn't work. Fitness center is not onsite and is about 5 or 6 minutes by car. Rooms are outdated. Too bad I'm... More
