Was ok, but the bed was very very hard

Comfortable, reasonably priced.......
Comfortable. Well priced. The motel was conveniently located to Stanford Medical Center in Palo Alto which was the reason for the trip to the Bay Area. Our room set-up with 1 Queen bed, TV, microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker was comfortable, clean. In spite of being right on the El Camino Real and the train running across the street our room was surprisingly quiet. The only noise came from the shower running in the room above ours but it didn't last long! We didn't take advantage of the continental breakfast being offered as we had other plans.

Hidden Gem
Needed a basic "place to lay my head" between two business meetings. Since this was a short notice trip I had no reservations anywhere and couldn't impose on friends. I normally will go with Hampton Inn, Best Western, etc. but *every* hotel I looked at in the area (San Francisco Peninsula) was in the (crazy!) range of $300 to as high as $600 (that's San Fran prices these days!) I had not heard of Americas Best Value Inn before but decided to try them rather than drive more than 50 miles away to get into the $150 - $200 range. I made the rez on Hotels.com, got to the hotel and found a very helpful gentleman to assist me. The cleanliness, spaciousness, and amenities of the room were a VERY pleasant surprise. Altho the hotel was on a fairly busy street I was also delighted and surprised at the level of soundproofing -- very quiet. Admittedly in the morning when heavy traffic of rush hour began, it was noisier, but completely to be expected -- the trade-off for being right on the main drag right next to Hwy 101, Metro Trains, etc. All told, I found it a "hidden gem" and will be my "base of operations" whenever I am in the area. Not a fancy place -- if you expect a "resort" look elsewhere; older "classic motel" building, but clean and well maintained. Exactly what a working traveler like me wanted; rest, quiet, wifi and not paying for "flash and frills". Just south of the SF Airport, so easy range to SF downtown and Silicon Valley as well.
