Good 7.8 From 112 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Central Location Near Stanford
Small and clean room, it was fine for my daughter and I but only stayed for one night. It’s perfect for two people who are there to visit Stanford Campus.
Marielena, us1 night family trip
Very Good 8.0
Just a quick getaway
My wife and I did a quick overnighter. The hotel was small and the room was small. It was very adequate for the two of us for the night but any longer would be much too cramped.
Steve, us1 night romance trip
Poor 2.0
Horrible Hotel
Right adjacent to a club called "the patio." So expect noise all night. The room is the size of a shoe box, and the check in takes forever. Beds are also super uncomfotable.
Adam, us2 night trip
Very Good 8.0
Very good value. Enjoyable and very European feel to the hotel. Desk space in room was a bit small to work.

Fair 4.0
Has potential, but has gone down hill
Hotel Keen is ok. I've stayed there a couple of times, but this last time there were issues. The room was not particularly clean, and there wasn't even toilet paper in the room when I arrived. The breakfast was not particularly well-stocked, and the tea water was cold. I recommend looking elsewhere, which is unfortunate because the location is quite convenient.
