This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in my entire life!! I planned a little birthday getaway in Palo Alto the past weekend and booked one night stay at this hotel. Staff was ruled

Had a delightful 3 nights stay in a fantastic location! Coming back to my home town, I don't usually stay in a hotel. But this is PA at it's best. Love the restaurant nextdoor! Serves dinned late too!

Courtyard view was of the tent, not really a garden. Did not do turn down service with chocolates the second night. Did not provide water for both of us, both nights... only one small bottle the entire stay. Other than that, nice location, nice room. Would stay again, because of the location.
