Room was more inviting, with a positive feel, and sterile or new - probably renovated, than the pictures on websites. Super friendly staff, and Zennish patio to enjoy weather and relax. Initially planned to stay in CA for one night. Work trip was extended to few extra days, chose to keep staying in the same hotel for the rest of the trip.

The Palo Alto Inn lives up to its positive reviews. Our room was surprisingly modern, clean and well-ordered, and we much enjoyed the little courtyard outside where we ate many of our meals during this time of COVID when we're avoiding restaurants. The staff was friendly and helpful and seemed to be taking appropriate coronavirus precautions. The refrigerator was smallish and lacked a freezer, but power outlets and charging stations were well-placed throughout the room, which, though a bit snug, was very comfortable. All in all it was an excellent value for the price.

Needed a place to stay when my husband was unexpectedly admitted to Palo Alto VA Hospital. This hotel/motel had a vacancy and we took advantage. It met all our basic needs. The staff was very welcoming in a time of need, providing lots of information about the surrounding area. Hospitality staff was friendly and efficient. The room and bedding were clean and fresh. All bedding items were replaced including sheets, blankets and bedspreads. Overall we witnessed total compliance with pandemic guidelines. The location was central to services and restaurants. The nicely maintained common areas were not used due to pandemic but looked comfortable and inviting. No breakfast, but we didn't expect one in this price range. We recommend this small inexpensive inn and we'll stay here again when we're in town.

When booking the Palo Alto Inn I looked for a clean place to stay, a fridge and microwave, comfortable bed, and easy access. We were there for a surgery at the VA Hospital, a two night stay (before the surgery at 6 a.m. and the night afterwards). The Palo Alto Inn checked all the boxes, and we enjoyed our stay there.

I stayed for a night because I really needed to get some rest on my road trip. It was just myself in a big king sized room. Plenty of towels, coffee, pillows, and space. I felt at home. The bed is comfy and the TV was good. There were plenty of outlets, and everything was just what I needed. Free parking, free ice machine, soda for $1. Nice staff. I’ll be back. They have a cool desk as well.
