I could have overlooked many of the cons for this hotel if it weren't for the non-functional deadbolt and a window that didn't close completely.
Pros: This hotel is close enough to walk to the Stanford shopping center, but it's along haul to the hospitals or main campus if you're walking. Short car or bike ride.
Spacious room with kitchen.
It is one of the most affordable hotels in the area, but I still felt like we paid double what a stay in a comparable hotel would have cost.
Cons: Deadbolt did not lock. Bathroom window didn't close or lock.
Finishings/amenities are outdated.
Noisy--because of the age of the building, we could hear every step across the floor our neighbors took.
No lobby--only a pass-through window that is not manned 24 hrs.
