My dad and I stayed at the Comfort Inn Palo Alto on a visit to Stanford University. Upon arrival, the guy at the front desk was very friendly. He also offered to give us a room on the second floor as to avoid any kind of noise had we been on the first floor. Our room was clean and well... More

Needed a room due to having someone in Stanford Hospital. The check in staff was very friendly and the room came with free wifi. The room itself was clean but reminded me of a road motel in the sixties. The beds were average at best and climate control was either high or off. Very average place to stay and below... More

The room itself was clean and the bed was decent. The guy at the front desk was very friendly and the free wifi was one of the reasons I booked this hotel. Cons- extremely noisy! The road is busy, even at midnight. I can hear almost every noise from the parking lot, the walkway, and the adjacent rooms - people... More

Don't stay at this motel unless you're doing business and don't intend to spend too much time there. It has a kind of half clean feeling. The beds are very mediocre. The breakfast, not too bad, but I really never ate much of it. I was in California on business so it sufficed, but I definitely would not recommend this... More

We arrived early (2:00 PM) and asked to check-in. We were given a room immediately as requested. The receptionist was nice. Our room, 126, is probably not typical of other rooms at the hotel. It has an alcove outside the door for an electrical cabinet. As a result, our room was probably 3 feet shorter than other rooms. The King... More

this location is very typical of Comfort Inn. King room was slightly small with a desk, one chair, microwave and fridge, and a decent size bathroom. The bed was comfortable, and the front desk staff were pleasant and helpful. this is an older hotel with exterior hallways. 4 carts of dirty laundry sat in the parking lot overnight, that was...

This Comfort Inn is located fairly close to Stanford University and has special rates for patients and family. Call ahead and tell the person on duty of your circumstances. They book the Stanford reserved rooms quite rapidly so you definitely need to reserve a room as far in advance of your visit as possible.

I stayed here because all of my normal haunts were booked or charging insane prices. The check-in clerk was exceedingly helpful. The room was clean. The king-sized bed was very comfortable. The complementary breakfast in the morning was ready early and had all of the things that most hotel chains offer. Absolutely no complaints. I would stay there again if... More

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
