This Days Inn is a motel. The location is great on Camino Real, close to Stanford, Stanford Mall, Palo Alto and other nearby areas for eating, shopping, etc. The room, although I could tell it was clean, did have a funny smell.

Very pleasant desk help. Clean, efficient room. Room a little small, but well organized. Good bed. Fragrant bushes outside door. Close to Stanford, where my daughter was graduating. We did not watch TV or use pool or eat there. Older motel, but well maintained.

I was at a conference at a neighboring hotel but didn't wart to pay their rate. I chose Days Inn on the same block and was completely satisfied (as was my wallet). The room was clean, bed was comfortable and location great. I would stay here again.
