Even after taking precautions suggested by several other reviews --- best to avoid this place. The management tries to fool you w/gimmickry (such as genuflecting green) & some eye candy.
PROS: Location near Palo Alto, Stanford & on El Camino (main thorofare) Nice gardens on the grounds.
1. Old 50s era buildings (except the tower --- but see other reviews about the tower problem) are very tired & worn
2. Rooms on the cramped side, especially w/the size of the furniture. Toilet area very tight w/the TP holder hitting leg.
3. Lighting: Passable, exacerabated by dark avocado green but bathroom too dim & takes several minutes to come on fully.
4. Shower is a very tight 3 x 3 & shower head is 6 feet high
5. Worst "breakfast" (sic) in several decades. No juice, low quality sweet pastries & mediocre coffee.
6. Outside feels very 3rd world w/tacky cleaning carfts blocking walkways & non-English spealers everywhere.
7,. Parking: tight spaces & too few of them. They gave away several prime spaces to electric vehicle charging stations
8. Worn-out concave bed
9. Thin walls/poor insulation from neighbors above & next door
