    Lady at the front desk did me a huge favor. Was in town for work. I normally stay at The Nest. Forgot to book a room and when I got off at 6 AM, I had no place to stay. She allowed me to check in hours early. Thanks!

    good deal, good stay

    Overall, the stay for one night was great. However, the building itself is old so, you will hear people walking from second floor and the beverage machine that was located right in front of our room was noisy all night.

  • 8.0.Very good

    I was looking for something very inexpensive yet safe and clean. I got this result from the Palo Alto Inn. The staff was nice, the room clean, price was good, and location excellent. There were two negatives in my opinion but they were minor. First, the bed was a little uncomfortable...too hard for my liking. Second, there was no bottled water on site. The vending machine only had soda. The hotel next door had a vending machine with water so it wasn't a problem. Overall the value for the money was appropriate.
