Needed to stay somewhere one night to visit Stanford. Most places in Palo Alto are very expensive or very questionable. I booked here based on other reviews.
When we pulled up, my wife thought I had made a big mistake. From the outside, just an old questionable motel. But the rooms were very updated, and very nice, and the beds very comfortable. It was also very clean, even the bathroom sparkled. It was plenty good for a quick stop for the night.
My wife was a bit sketchy with the location on the strip, but I've stayed in Palo Alto on the strip before (at Creekside) and was not worried about it.
And Izzy's Brooklyn Bagels was right around the corner. And the Stanford visitor was about 7 blocks away. That worked for me.
