As long as you don't stay here in the heat of the summer, my wife and I find The Cardinal a great place to stay in Palo Alto. The place is a bit dated but that is part of the charm. the staff is warm and friendly. We have been coming here on and off for 28 years and have never had a problem.
We always stay somewhere else in the warmer months though...we are just too used to A/C.
