Everything already written before this sums this place up. It looks like a wino hotel. Filthy, stained furniture, no staff anywhere. There were dirty towels on the floor, the bedspread is foul, linens questionable.

The owners definitely are not counting are repeat visitors. Pretty much everything was shabby. I could not find anybody working there to check out despite repeatedly ringing their door bell. If low $$ is your primary criterion for deciding where to stay, then go ahead. Otherwise, I would look elsewhere.

This is by far one of the worst hotels that I have EVER stayed at. Had holes to the outside walls, dirty and stained upholstery and carpets and peeling paint over the gas range. I would definitely discourage ANYBODY from staying there unless financially restricted. Stay away from this one even though cheaper. I felt exremely scared as an unsafe... More

No heat, no hot water, terrible traffic noise. Terrible place. Worst hotel I've ever been in! I've been in 90 countries. 49 states never been in ANY hotel near this bad. A really terrible place. Terrible is a kind word in this case.

Stayed at this "Inn" while I had an appointment At The Cancer Center @ Stanford. It was awful. There was no one there to check me in- a lady that spoke no English handed me an envelope with a key- never saw anyone there. No one around when I went to check out. Nothing in the room worked, Some of... More

This place was disgusting. Don't do it! The room was large but the aircon had mould in it. The chassis had disgusting stains and the bed just a basic sheet and looked like you might catch something. The for deadlock was difficult to work and everything looked old.

This is a very old run-down hotel. Peeling paint. No air conditioning in most rooms. No double locks on door. Poor security. Broken electrical outlets. No screens on windows to keep bugs out. Really too bad as this is a decent location near Stanford University that could cater to visiting parents and alumni coming in for the sporting events.

My wife and I stayed many times at Stanford Inn, Menlo Park. We particularly like its location-close to the University Medical Center and Stanford Mall. The Mangement is friendly and responsive to visitors' needs. The spacious rooms are always clean on arrival and are cleaned every day of the stay. We also appreciate the Kitchen with a stove, refrigerator and... More

My boyfriend and I had a horrible experience from the start! We arrived around 10pm and I went to the "front desk" to get our keys... No one was there, but I spotted an envelope with my name on it. I opened it and found a key for room #4... As I turned around to spot our destination, I saw... More
