Stayed during the Salesforce.com conference due to lack of a room anywhere in the SF area and being from Europe originally, I have a great deal of experience with B&B's vs Hotels. B&B's usually do NOT allow you IN their kitchen to help yourself to their fresh fruit bowl ( !! ) M&M's, juices and milks, cereal selection anytime, and a wine bar with free self serve California Chardonnay ( a real plus after meetings all day!) Now to the bedroom. 10 ft ceilings offered me a feeling of space and the colors are muted sand colors with burgundy bedspread. Large enclosed gas fireplace too. My balcony was a lovely place to relax with the wine listening to their waterfall fountain too.
I read the previous customer's review about their breakfast not being "good" and the hosts not "pouring coffee for guests" and that made me chuckle. Perhaps these folks are the hotel variety and have never stayed in a real B&B before. I have never been "waited on" with refills of coffee at any B&B. This is not a restaurant! Most B&B's actually have a sideboard with thermos' marked Decaf and Regular and Hot Water for tea bags marked Lipton, and you get up from the table and serve yourself. Here at this place, they have a large glass lazy susan where a thermos of coffee sits with REAL half and half, and also real freshly squeezed orange juice and (very rare) real Canadian Maple Syrup for your pancakes.

Eggs any way you like, bacon, waffles, pancakes cereal selection and many breads ! Now that's what I call amazing. Being quite a breakfast lover I had 2 boiled eggs, thick sliced bacon, English muffin, 2 pancakes, OJ and coffee but you can have anything you want between a 2 hour window too. She has a chef that cooks for you personally. So I deem this place to have the best selection of breakfast items and the 3 minute egg was cooked to perfection! Also by my bedside on the table are easy lamps with a touch of your finger they turn off and on! And oh one more! iPhone/iPad docking station radio too. And the rates are amazingly low for what you receive. She was a very gracious innkeeper who didn't hover either. You feel at home but not "at grandmas house" if you know what I mean. I highly recommend a tour of Stanford Museum and Rodin Sculpture Garden nearby also.
Chardonnay Room is now my favorite. 2 rooms face the street also for a cheaper rate and the street i...
