    Very disappointed

    This place is not good at all. Run down, dirty carpets and stains on the bed linen. Being located in Palo Alto, i was very disappointed in the price.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Overall this place is quiet and cozy, very close to get any essentials needed food, banking and groceries. Rooms needs to be updated as it’s getting worn out. Not sure if they’re upgrading this place, as the upstairs walk path area needs fixing up.

  • 6.0.Good

    Place is clean but run down. The upstairs walkway looks like it will fall off the building. They have a nice swimming pool but it’s ice cold . The breakfast they offer is breads, waffles, cold cereal and coffee, OJ. This place is ok for a nights stay and the price is ok. My front window was completely broken with a large crack. Very dangerous . Toilet was not bolted to the floor, very wobbly. They need to wash their towels with fabric softener, they felt like sand paper. One positive note was they have very nice large tv’s.

    Would never stay agai

    Hotel is not in any way shape good. No heat, shower had no hot water, only hot was from sink, just very very run down and not worth the nightly fee (which was terribly high)

    Adequate - clean and comfortable

    Easy check in. Quiet setting. Close to Stanford Medical Center which was the purpose of our trip. Rooms were dated but clean and comfortable. Continental breakfast - adequate - don't expect more. Presentation of breakfast choices, clean and orderly. Restaurants nearby. Pricey but probably not for the area. Friendly staff.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Terrible Place

    This motel is way over priced for the conditions of the room I had. The light and fan in the bathroom didn’t work, the room smelled terrible and one of the outlets wouldn’t work unless then light switch was on so I had to unscrew the light bulb in order to sleep while charging my phone. The room felt like it was storage for extra furniture because there was a bedside table tucked under a desk that was pretty unusable. The carpet just looked old and gross. Ended up cutting my reservation early to find another place to stay!

    I liked the convenience of having to sleep in my clothes as i was too nervous to touch the sheets. Was easy to get up & leave the second i woke up.
