          Two nights on business made comfortable by this affordable, quiet and pleasant hotel in the heart of Menlo Park. Coffee and fridge in room. Lots of amenities. Free, if sparse, breakfast. Settled well back from street so very quiet.

          Yes! Breakfast isn't anything fancy but there is fruit, yogurt, oatmeal, muffins. Fresh coffee all day and cookies in the afternoon.
