Good 7.2 From 504 reviews

Good 6.0
The location was good however we were surprised there was no pool. The room was clean but the bed was very uncomfortable and the area was very loud. My husband got sick and we had to check out early. The manager gave me a very hard time with a poor attitude but finally agreed to refund one of our nights. Even though she agreed to do it she still charged us both nights so I had to argue with her to remind her that she agreed and have a reverse of charges so overall it was a real pain and stressful for me and we would not be returning to that hotel

Good place to stay
It was a good Place to stay for the value. The people in the front office were very accommodating. The Area around it is sort of weird because there's no markets or stores to go to and it feels a bit isolated and about a 15 to 20 minute drive to stand for hospital.not important but the outside could use better maintenance.inside was fine.

comfortable and close restaurants near by
The room was clean and the breakfast items were a wide variety for all types of diets. I needed the room for business for an appointment for the next day check in was easy. The only problem with the room was the bathroom knob fell off so found another way to lock the bathroom door and open it. I will have to remember that when making the next reservation to tell them I have a disability to get a room by the disable parking spots.

Happy stay
We stayed 2 nights. This hotel was just a few miles from Stanford which was the reason for our trip. It’s quiet, clean and comfortable. We were surprised with the hot breakfast. The front desk people were courteous and polite. We will definitely return in the future.

Had problem with mini fridge informed front desk & it was resolved right away. Only issue was there were no tables to eat breakfast with chairs. They only had 1 coffee table in the lobby.
