“Slept like a baby!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

The Coronet was the perfect place and the right price! It is newly renovated and they have the best mattress I have slept on in a hotel- ever! The place is clean- the owners are friendly and it is conveniently located on the free shuttle route to Stanford-plus walking distance to nice restaurants and groceries. We were very pleased with our two nights here!

Room Tip: no elevator so if you dont want to hike up stairs with your luggage then ask for a room on the first...

Stayed here one night while visiting friends nearby. The rooms all appear to be the same: a small efficiency with living area / kitchennette in front half and bedroom / closet / bath in back half. Bath had nice walkin shower only. The room had lots of natural light and ventilation from the rear operable windows. Check in and parking were smooth. There is a nearby commercial street that had a farmer's market on Sunday morning - but nice 50's style shopping street on the rest of thedays. I found everything extremely clean and comfortable and would definitely stay here again. The photo is of the concrete block wall around the small kidney shaped swimming pool - Go Saints!

Stayed August 2012, traveled solo

We had a such a wonderful experience here. Husband and wife that own it were so helpful and nice. They really made us feel at home. The rooms are newly renovated, clean, and spacious. Especially liked the little kitchette area. Lots of parking and it was right outside our room, so we had an easy time transporting our luggage and belonging in and out of our room. The motel is also near places to eat too. We had a bad experience with another hotel, so we called Coronet Motel that same day we checked into the other hotel, to see if they had rooms available, and Coronet were willing to accomodate us. They are awesome!

Very clean, newly renovated rooms. Great friendly staff, a little road noise. Very comfortable bed. I just can't say enough nice things about this place. Great value! Staff was so helpful with public transportation schedules. Did I tell you wAs a single woman alone on this stay and felt VERY safe! Don't miss this jewel

This place is very clean and has a simple elegance. I had a very enjoyable stay at this motel, and the front desk was very courteous. Even though it is a motel, it is probably better than many hotels. It is also close to many restaurants and Stanford University.

The Coronet Motel is a good little motel on El Camino Real, off California Avenue. The owners are a lovely couple who looked after us so well during our stay there. It's convenient on foot for a number of locations including restaurants, buses, and the Caltrain. The rooms are kept very clean and pleasant, and are a good size with decent amenities. I'd stay here again or recommend it to friends. The only downside is it's a little noisy, being so close to such busy roads, and breakfast was a basket of fruit and muffins in the motel office lobby. This wasn't such a problem with the amount of excellent places to eat in the area though!
