The rooms are very small and generally uncomfortable. The inner courtyard is bizzarre, and since the room windows face it, you need to keep your blinds close unless you don't mind having no privacy. I never had breakfast in the kitchen as it seemed unclean and there wasn't much except for some fruit and loafs. The location is very good, with lots of great restaurants and coffee shops close by, with the Caltrain just down the road. Although compared to other more expensive properties in Palo Alto it may be a reasonable deal, don't expect much from this hotel.
