Just across the line from Palo Alto, this motel is quite convenient to Stanford, which was our destination for this trip. This is a typical L-shaped, two-story motel setup that has been nicely rehab'd and kept up. The operators are very friendly and put out the extra effort to make you feel welcome as a guest instead of just another wallet. At check-in, we were presented with a basket of bottled waters and home-made cookies, both quite welcome after a long drive. The rooms are decently sized, with mix-and-match furniture that is nonetheless in good shape, comfortable, and useful. The bathrooms were clean and modern, the beds firm and comfortable. Wifi is free and excellent, with four different repeater locations to choose from so that you get a strong signal. One of my favorite features is that the hidef flat screen TV is provided with an actual hidef cable feed, unlike many "luxury" hotels that provide only an analog signal (with it's "fat-people" picture). And it has a generous array of channels including ESPN. We had an upper room, which I would recommend if you can handle a flight of stairs with your luggage, as our floor in the sink area squeaked prodigiously, and I wouldn't have wanted the room below ours (208). We didn't have occasion to use either the heat or the AC, but the unit appeared to be newer. The breakfast room was light and pleasant, and the offerings ranged from cold cereals to make-your-own waffles. Entirely adequate and very welcome each morning. There are several restaurants within walking distance, including a Turkish one that was quite good. We'll be repeat visitors whenever we are in this area.
