    Fabulous

    Don, the hotel manager, has been extremely nice. The room was clean and comfortable, the facilities accessible. There is a bus stop right across the street, and taxis are familiar with the location.

    This is a minor gripe, but some people might care: the "continental breakfast" is just a couple of orange juice bottles, coffee and tea packets, and a chemical laden "supermarket pastry" that are waiting on a tray in your room.

    Superb

    Room nicely remodeled and very clean. King size bed seemed huge with four comfortable pillows. No odor or bugs as claimed by a previous visitor. This was a No Smoking room but underside of bed spread had two burn holes. No big deal as room did not have the disgusting smell of cigarettes. Motel had all amenities such as plenty of towels, soaps, shampoo, coffee in room, microwave and refrigerator. Did not use WiFi.

    Could not find a tv news station. Tv had poor sound and picture quality but not a problem as I rarely have time to watch tv when visiting out of town.

    Nice clean room. Good value.

    This is a motel. Cars pull up to the doors to the rooms.

    The room was comfortable and large with easy access. It is a good value for the Palo Alto area. Don't expect breakfast.

    Needing a place near Stanford Univ. campus, this was within 8mins. It is has "mature" buildings, but has been upgraded. It is also one of the least expensive facilities in the area.

    Good

    The owners/front office are very nice. My TV didn't work and they tried very hard to fix it and they did.

    Towels are very rough and small. The soap was off, so probably very old. The worst was the rubber map they put under the bottom sheet which made me sweat all night and was crincly. Very hard to sleep. So I slept on top of the bedding.

    Superb

    It's an old motel, but recently remodeled, so my room was clean, fresh, and pleasant. The staff was friendly and efficient. The motel is in a central location for Stanford University and Silicon Valley, and there are many restaurants within a mile or two.

    Because the motel is right on El Camino Real, there was a fair amount of traffic noise, although it quieted down at night. The breakfast provided was a couple of packaged sweet rolls and a bottle of orange juice (which had frozen in the refrigerator) -- why bother?

    Small but cozy.

    No breakfast. You get coffee and some sweets in the morning.

    Fit our purpose: we came to visit a friend and we just needed a clean place to have a shower and sleep. This place is quiet and clean and 10 min walk to my friend. Suit us perfectly.

    Very good

    Plesantly surprised with grounds. Was afraid it would be old and worn down, but it was not. The flowers and vines added alot to the facade.

    Great value, rooms were much better than I expected.

    During the week the hotel is used by construction workers who park their large trucks in front of the bedrooms. They start up the noisy engines around 5.45 and don't leave for another 15 to 20 minutes! Don't expect a lie-in

    price was right and the location was good

    fridge rattled all night until unpluged, poor tv service

    Superb

    It was very clean, and the personnel was very attentive. The free juice, cakes and coffee in the room made for great breakfast.

    It is kind of far for Stanford, but I guess that's related to the lower price.
