8.4.Very good.
  • Better than an Econolodge or Travelodge. Very "grandma" like. They tried to make it look…

  • As others have noted, this isn’t the fanciest hotel out there. But we were perfectly…

    Best in this price range in Palo Alto. Recommend

    Super cozy room and hotel, very friendly staff. Loved the pool area. They clean the room everyday without that fake bs saying they are worried about the environment or your privacy, they just keep your room and bathroom clean and tight everyday of your stay. Thats awesome.

    While here I was diagnosed with COVID. The staff did everything to make sure I had all I needed and checked in on a regular basis. They went above and beyond

  • 6.0.Good

    Basic

    Room was clean but dated. Even though it said the room was non smoking, it smelled of stale smoke. It worked overall in a pinch for one night for the price.

    Top class service at budget friendly price

    We were in town for an overnight stay. We had medical appointments at Stanford Hospital and didn’t want to have to leave home at 4am to make the appointment time. There are a number of restaurants and fast food options within walking distance and it’s not far from Downtown or Stanford Medical Centers. It’s an older property but everything was clean, functional, and ideal for our needs. We will choose this property again should we have more visits to the area.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    We were greeted by a very friendly front desk employee (Neil) right when we got to the property. He was very helpful and made us feel very welcome. We rented the suite which had 2 rooms and 3 queen sized beds, a small kitchen and even a walk in closet. The property was clean and our room was comfortable. We felt it was a great value for the price we paid. There were beverages including coffee, hot chocolate, tea, juice and a packaged pastry available for breakfast. There is also a Corner Bakery practically next door. We would definitely stay again.
