I stayed here for one week while I underwent health procedures at a nearby facility. The owners were amazing! From the day I called to make my reservations a few weeks before my stay to the day I left, everything was great. They even offer a reduced rate (which you can ask for) if you let them know you are staying there while receiving medical care at a nearby facility. While it is not luxurious, it met all of my needs: clean, safe, quiet, convenient, great price, kitchen with basic dishes, utensils (I did bring my own dish soap and sponge as well as any other items I really wanted), dorm-room size fridge, coffee maker, double pane windows, which makes a huge difference in terms of noise, and all the other basics. I really enjoyed sitting out by the pool under the trees to read each morning and some afternoons - it was sunny and the weather was great (even in February - it is Palo Alto after all). The towels are not plush but that did not bother me - just noting it here so others are aware of this. You can walk to some good restaurants (Straits is around the corner as are Equinox health club and Frye's electronics and several mom and pop convenience stores. If you like to walk (which I do) you can take the side streets off of El Camino to California Avenue and have access to lots of restaurants, coffee shops, Molly Stonse and other organic stores, book/camera stores, etc. I highly recommend this place when you need a well-priced place for a few days to a week or so. I have to stress that the customer service, maid service and overall vibe was simply the best!
