“Best Place Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

I stay here because I go to the Stanford Hospital. I find that the staff is very accomidating always ensuring I have a wonderful stay. They are always helpful in getting the information I need at all times. The breakfast is great. Staff is wonderful. I love staying here because it feels like a home away from home.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Just completed a stay at this property. Bottom line review is that this is a decent hotel, but really just average. I wouldn't go out of my way to avoid it in the future, but there's no reason for me to insist booking this property the next time I'm in town.

It's a motel, which is a little different than what I'm used to on business stays, and comes along with the usual motel issues. Parking is immediately outside of the room, and as the property fronts El Camino Real it can be quite noisy. Security didn't appear to be an issue at this location, but it's obviously less secure than a typical hotel. The walls/ceiling were very thin, and I could easily hear when my neighbours were up and about or talking. Cleanliness of the property and the room was not at all an issue although the wingback chair/ottoman were very old and shabby looking. The room had a very odd layout, with weird kind of kitchenette/bathroom combo area with a *small* toilet/shower room adjoining. The fan/light fixture in the toilet room sounded like a small prop plane whenever it was turned on. Big HD flat screen TV in the room, but no HD content available. There was a fridge and a microwave in the room as well.

The area around the hotel is safe, I walked around after dark with no problems at all. There is walmart, target, and whole foods in the area if you need provisions. There are numerous restaurants in the area. I didn't get the chance to try the included breakfast offerings, but I peeked in and the selection looked decent.

Room Tip: Try to get an upstairs room, then you won't have to hear your upstairs neighbour thumping around...

Stay 2 nights. The building is very dated and tired looking. Bed was comfortable but the room had an unpleasant odour. Cleanliness could have been better.

Had to run the Guantlet of smokers on the walkways to the room, which was not pleasent. Breakfast is bad I waited to get the ofice to eat the second day.

Only positive was the front desk staff were friendly and efficent, excellent actually. There are much better hotels on the same street close by for similar price.

Room Tip: get a room away form the road to lessen the highway noise.

Stay here every holiday spent with family. Room is very quiet, bed is comfortable, sleep is guaranteed. The front desk staff is always courteous. I return here for the whirlpool bathtubs and the amenities.

I spent there 6 nights during my business trip. Good location, room spacious and very clean, very comfortable bed, nice and helpful staff. The only thing which was not so good for me was a breakfast, but this is a personal taste.

Wish the breakfast was open till 10AM everyday. Great office staff. Always accomidating. Fast friendly service. Carpets are getting pretty worn out. May need to be replaced. The rest of the room is great though.

If you need a less expensive hotel than the Raddison or Sheraton this is a good option. Pretty good location for access to business locations off of Foothills Expressway.

Rooms are old looking and bathroom was very small (sink outside) but $135 is much better than $250.

Breakfast was included but nothing to get excited about.

It's a matter of price people.
