8.0 Very Good
Pros:Great staff, attentive and friendly. The beds were comfortable. The pool was very nice with the flowering vines and the children enjoyed swimming. Very central and there were good food options close by.
Cons:The motel seemed busy but the guests seemed to be there just to sleep. The pool wasn’t really used the two nights we stayed except by my family and it seemed unattended, leaves in the bottom of it and dead insects floating atop it. The breakfast was very thoughtful but wasn’t really taken advantage of by most of the guests and seemed as though it had been around for awhile. The comforter had a stain on it that appeared to be makeup foundation. And there was a used face cloth from a previous guest tossed high on a shelf. The cable tv would have moments where it would lag which made watching the NBA finals game frustrating in the final moments.
9.0 Wonderful
Pros:Located close to the Stanford University campus. Murals painted on the exterior walls in the inner court yard are an interesting touch.
