10.0 Wonderful

10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Peaceful and quiet and beautiful setting. Perfect for a visit with our grown children!
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:This hotel is very cute and affordable. It's close to Stanford, has a nice little pool, and beautiful landscaping. It's very clean, up to date, has a great overhead shower, and the bed was super comfy. The deli next door is great too! I would definitely recommend this to someone going down to Palo Alto. We considered staying in a big name hotel for more money, but opted for this place because it had more character, free parking, and was closer to the school. I'm so glad we did!
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Clean, accessible, convenient to everything, quite rooms, fridge in room, plenty of parking.
Cons:Nothing. No complaints.
9.4 Wonderful
Pros:Early check-in allowed at 1:30 pm and noon check-out. Free wifi. Room was sensibly and tastefully appointed including ergonomic chair and bed. Next to El Camino and yet a nice natural setting.
Cons:TV basically did not have digital channels or I could not find them. Maids banged on the door real loud.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Spacious room. Comfortable beds. Beautiful, peaceful grounds. Heated pool in a beautiful garden setting.
