Let's begin when you enter....(don't be deceived by the cute lemon & orange trees in the courtyard)
-The "office" was a tiny window, very unwelcoming
-When walking into the room the door only had a basic lock, no double locks or electronic card lock.
-It looked like a convent
-Carpet was filthy
-Multiple holes in the wall
-the towels looked old & disheveled
-windows & holes were "repaired" with tape
-When walking into the kitchen, the ground was wet, fridge was unplugged & there was big chunks of melted ice in the dirty freezer. The gas stove was also missing a knob.
-Our room was right next too the road, it did not feel safe nor clean!
-Our biggest complaint was we couldn't turn on the gas heater---I'm on oxygen 24/7...it is flammable! You're supposed to stay 20ft away from open flame! SO we froze our butts off & woke up with severe muscle aches & headaches. When we confronted them about booking us even though they knew we oxygen with us, it didn't seem to phase them as important.
The whole place was unacceptable. We decided to ditch it for a Travel Lodge on El Camino Real. Stanford Inn needs A lot of work, I'll leave it at that.
