“Days Inn Motel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

This Days Inn is a motel. The location is great on Camino Real, close to Stanford, Stanford Mall, Palo Alto and other nearby areas for eating, shopping, etc.
The room, although I could tell it was clean, did have a funny smell. Once the air conditioner was on for a day, the smell seemed to disappear although we do go buy an air spray.
The continental breakfast is actually a snack box in your room (NutriGrain bar, oatmeal cookie, gardettos, juice boxes). That was so-so. It is nice that the room had a small fridge and microwave. They also had popcorn & hot cocoa.
Overall, I would say this is a conveniently located motel, but it does have a motel feel to it. For the money, it was satisfactory.

Excellent location (close to Stanford Medical Center). Clean and spacious room with refrigerator, microwave, small table and chairs as well as a desk area with mirror and elec outlets. Bathroom area has toilet, sink and shower enclosed area. Air conditioning worked great (94 outside). We stayed in room 110 ground floor. Plenty of parking available right outside of room. Front desk very accommodating as we were allowed to check out early when surgery was postponed for three weeks. This hotel is a great value compared to other hotels in the area and we will definitely be staying there again when we return in a few weeks.

Very pleasant desk help. Clean, efficient room. Room a little small, but well organized. Good bed. Fragrant bushes outside door. Close to Stanford, where my daughter was graduating. We did not watch TV or use pool or eat there. Older motel, but well maintained.

I was at a conference at a neighboring hotel but didn't wart to pay their rate. I chose Days Inn on the same block and was completely satisfied (as was my wallet). The room was clean, bed was comfortable and location great. I would stay here again.
