    Excellent location, nice breakfast and staff, clean bedroom and bathroom, handy elevator

    Sometimes you can hear your neighbors conversation, but in general it’s good.

    Hotel Keen was ideal for our stay, we attended a two day festival in Palo Alto so just needed a shower & a comfortable bed. Staff are friendly and everything is clean. Location is good there is a high street around the corner which is pretty at night with lots of restaurants and super popular ice cream bars.

    For anyone that wants a view from their room, there isn’t one. However, we never intended to spend much time at the hotel so it didn’t matter to us. We arrived to find out our reservation had been cancelled, despite us having called the day before to let them know we would be coming a day late, however John at the desk was helpful and sorted the problem out with no fuss.

    Location and food, nothing else!

    Very high price for less than basic room! I can't believe that there is a hotel room with a toilet that has NO door, only a curtain!!

    The location was perfect for the purpose of my stay: a brief writing retreat (I worked on a manuscript…and I use a laptop and detest sitting at a desk, so the very comfy bed suited my lazy guy's writing position). Numerous fooderies are within easy walking distance, none cheap, of course (it's Palo Alto, remember), which were the only local amenities I cared about. Warm cookies at 8 PM was a nice touch. Bathroom was nicely appointed and everything worked. Value was good for the locale.

    I read plenty of reviews before booking, so my expectations of a small room (I got the smallest) matched my experience: possibly the smallest hotel room I've ever been in. I spent most of my time working on a manuscript, so writing on a comfy bed works for me. Your mileage may vary. If the owners could find a way to shoehorn a refrigerator and/or a microwave, the experience would be much improved. And a little more creativity with the breakfast wouldn't hurt either.
