After staying in many of the hotels in this area, we found red cottage to be a real bargain. It’s set back from el Camino real in a residential area and is quiet, clean, and as nice of rooms as anywhere else in this area....More

Upon learning of a short return trip to the area, there was no hesitation in seeking accommodations at this hotel. The location, its facilities, the staff and the price makes this a "home away from home". All this with a complimentary breakfast...don't waste time thinking...More

Completely unreasonable policies, and customer service is atrocious. Definitely not a consumer-friendly establishments. I wouldn't stay here if they paid me to. Do yourself a favor and avoid this place at all costs. You'll get better service at a Motel-6.

Spent a few days here and it covers all the basics well. Reasonable beds, buffet breakfast, swimming pool...and it’s close to Palo Alto where the office is . Additionally it’s very cheap. No wonder it fills up quickly.

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