Good value and near Stanford so a short taxi ride

Fair 4.0
Okay in a pinch
The room had ants. The carpet was wet outside of the bathroom. The toilet didnt flush properly. The room smelled like smoke in the morning. I dont know if someone was on the balcony smoking, but it was bad. The bed mattress had dips and lumps, so uncomfortable.

When we got there we had to wait 20 minutes before someone came to check us in. The toilet in our room did not flush correctly. But the breakfast provided was good and everything was relatively clean.

Leaking toilet.
The bed was nice and firm which we loved, however the toilet had a leak at the valve which flooded our bathroom floor. The manager came right away which was great, but instead of calling someone to fix it or switch us rooms, he told us to just put some towels under it. He DID bring us extra towels... Thanks I guess?? But we just decided to shut the valve off completely when he left...

The location was great for a short Palo Alto layover. The bedroom area needs remodeling although the shower appears to have been redone recently. Somewhat dirty and a nasty wooden plank in front of room. Property needs massive paint job. The front desk check young man was very frosty upon check in and offered no 2 way communication nor welcomes whatsoever. So much for customer service!
