This is a motel and average. I paid almost $400 a night when it should have been $100 at most based on conditions. The staff, breakfast and wifi were good. Rooms were so so. Not a horrible option just know this is not fancy and very basic.

My husband and I stayed here because he had to report to a nearby hospital for treatment the next morning, and we live at least an hour away (much more in rush hour traffic). We found the room very pleasant and the breakfast buffet offered lots of choices.

Second stay here and would stay again. Very conciently located to San Francisco, and other Bay Area cities. Rooms are adequately supplied with fridge freezer microwave desk, etc. Breakfast is good for families not so much for vegans. Front desk is very helpful and considerate.

I found this to be an excellent value in comparison to the hotels near SFO or Palo Alto. We were pleasantly surprised by how quiet the room was towards the rear of the property. Room was clean and well lighted. Bathroom was a bit dated, but satisfactory. Breakfast is provided and was a bit better than the breakfast at Hampton... More

The front desk and housekeeping staff were pleasant. Room was clean and functional. The property is a motel (room door leads to an outside walkway) with a normal amount of guest and street noise. Breakfast was fine and filling. I would happily stay here again.

Simply a lovely place to stay. I would stay there again in a heartbeat. I think the sweetest thing about the hotel experience was that they had Jazz playing in the room. It was so soothing to enter the room after a long day to the sound of soft music.

Clean, spacious, comfortable and friendly. My husband was at Stanford Hospital and I stayed for a month. It really felt like a home away from home. Great breakfast, close to grocery, resteraunts and other ammenities. Would stay again.

We stayed here as it seemed as if the whole of greater San Francisco was booked for Dreamforce. It is a motel on a busy road not a five star resort, but it does a really good job of being a motel. Rooms were big, quiet and clean, wifi was free, breakfast was simple but all you needed. Staff were... More

This is a reasonable rate hotel in a very expensive part of California, especially during the week because of all the tech businesses and Stanford U. If you have a government ID (my USMC retirement ID for example) you can save over 1/2 the regular rate. The rooms are large as are the bathrooms. We stayed in a first floor... More

The hotel itself is average -- large, clean room but with that "motel" smell and some traffic noise from El Camino. The worst thing was the price differential from what appears on Trip Advisor and the actual rate that you could be paying if you went directly to the website. Interestingly there is no link from TA to the website.... More
