“Enjoyed our stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

We stayed here and found the staff to be very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were clean and well appointed. And the complimentary water bottle and treat bag accentuated the friendly atmosphere. The breakfast buffet included eggs and fresh, hot pancakes. I would definitely recommend this Inn.

I was expecting the usual "bland" experience that I have had in the past with "chain" lodges. I am happy to report that is was pleasant surprise!
The staff was very friendly and accommodating not the usual "indifferent" service. The rooms were VERY clean, which is usually an area of concern for me. The room was large with a sofa, and a working desk for my computer. Nice appointments and good linens and fabrics, not the usual "cheap" furnishings. The lighting was great, not the usual florescent overheads. It was quiet and I spelt great. There were nice amenities in the room, and the complimentary breakfast was very nice. Plenty of different options for all tastes, and awesome cinnamon rolls!
This was very good value for the price! I will definately stay here again!

Room Tip: The upstairs rooms at the back are quieter.

This has been the best inn I have stayed in so far. There was great service and complimentary items in the room. It was very clean and the room was fantastic. The breakfast was also great with a pancake making machine and cinnamon rolls. I would recommend this place to anyone.

The staff at this Holiday Inn Express is so helpful and friendly and Ron is the best!! I have stayed here several times in the last few months and it is definitely closest to Stanford, Lucille Packard, Palo Alto, Stanford Shopping Center and Menlo Park. The other HIE's don't look so far apart as they go north along El Camino Real but the traffic is really challenging and the time estimates on my GPS are underrated so this place's location is a real time saver. Plus it's super-clean, with lots of quiet rooms and every one of the staff goes out of their way to help however they can.

Room Tip: Seems like the rooms are all quiet, surprisingly so because it's on a busy thoroughfare.

Friendly staff and nice rooms. Good value for the room and breakfast. There were a lot of conviences, i.e. safe in the room, linens ready for the sofa/bed pull-out, coffee and a bottle of water, ironing board... We were also in need of some extra items such as a razor, toothbrush and bottle corcker all of which they were very accommodating about. I would very happily recommend staying at this establishment.

Spent one night during a business trip because of proximity to Lucille Packard Childrens' Hospital and affordable price when compared with closer hotels. Desk staff was very friendly and helpful, including resolution of a reservation issue. Room was clean. El Camino Real is busy street, but noise was not an issue during my visit, especially considering all rooms are outdoor access. Without a vehicle, dining options are limited with only one or two decent restaurants within walking distance, but for one night that was not an issue for me. The complimentary breakfast was typical for HI Express, which is better than many. I will definitely consider this property when future travel needs bring me to this area.

Room Tip: Further from El Camino Real might be better even though noise was not an issue during my brief visit...

I stayed here for the first time a couple of weeks ago for three nights during a business trip. I have stayed in many HIE on the I80 and I94 corridors during vacation drives, but this is the first time in a major metro area. The consistency of the product is very high and positive. The room was spacious and comfortable. The lobby was small but cozy and the daily breakfast was first rate -- good selection and high quality.

The staff seemed very nice and friendly morning and night.

This is a motor lodge, so you are able to park right in front of your room. The hotel was quiet, but the hotel is on El Camino, a fairly busy arterial, so early morning traffic can be heard -- but not too early and I had no problem.
