Affordability and comfort merge at this Palo Alto property

A central location near Stanford University, Shoreline Amphitheatre and tech giants such as Google means incomparable convenience for budget-minded travelers. A pets-welcome policy means that pets can stay with their owners for a modest fee. The complimentary breakfast buffet goes beyond a mere continental spread by providing hot items, too. Free high-speed Internet and in-room kitchen amenities (microwave, refrigerator, coffeemaker) add value, as well.

Highlights:
  • Free high-speed Internet access in rooms
  • Complimentary morning buffet with hot and cold breakfast foods
  • Pet-friendly policy
Rooms:

A neutral color scheme and light-colored wood furniture create a calm atmosphere in the 70 guestrooms and suites at this two-star property. Free in-room high-speed Internet access, local phone calls and cable TV, and amenities such as a microwave, refrigerator and coffeemaker make everyone feel at home. All rooms are non-smoking, but pets can stay for an additional nightly fee.

Features:

Guests start the day with a free breakfast buffet (with both hot and cold items) and coffee in the lobby. Business travelers have free access to a computer work station with a printer and can use the fax or copy machine for a fee. Depending on their budget, guests can choose between same-day valet dry-cleaning services or the on-site laundry room. Pets are welcome, too, for an extra fee. Outdoor parking is included.

Stanford football game

Not too far from campus. Decent selection of food close by. The room was nothing special, but it clean and quite.

What we needed.

Could have used a few more towels without having to ask, but it was clean and comfortable and in a good location.

visiting family

it's an ok place if you can get it for $100 or less a night. the internet is weak in some parts of the hotel. also, if you book thru this website, I suspect they give you the smallest king sized room available.

Wouldn't stay again

They did not honor what we had reserved at all! Rooms are very small, need to be repainted. Bathroom was nice.

good if you can get the room for under $100 per night

this was my third stay there. clean room, good location, staff was much better this time. only complaint is that the wireless was very slow.

the front desk clerked lied to me for no good reason

when we checked in, we specifically asked for a quiet room. it was early in the afternoon and there were no other cars in the parking lot. the manager assured us it was a quiet room. turns out it was at the top of the stairwell next to maid's closet. we ask for another room and he shows me a room on the map that was quiet. the room looked like it was smaller than the others and i asked the manager if it was the same size as the others he assured me that it was. the room of course was smaller than the average room. it was irritating that the front desk maanger lied to me twice, especialy when there was no one else checked in to the hotel. otherwise the room and hotel were fine for our needs.
