Horrible. Me and my fiancé arrived here after spending the day driving up from LA and sightseeing for a around 13 hours. After we checked we both went to the room to drop off it bags and to use to bathroom. We had ordered food to be picked up from a place that would be closing soon, so we could not go to office after seeing the condition of this room during this quick visit. First there were spiders on the walls, flies in the bathroom, the bed box spring was exposed and badly stained, holes and patches in the carpet, and the top comforter on the bed had tears in it. There was also people drinking, smoking, and making noise outside their rooms for our entire short stay here. We are gone for a total of 20 minutes and had only been in the room for 5 minutes, when I arrived back to speak to the manager and I requested a refund or a different room, both of his answers to me were no because we had use the bathroom and there were no other rooms available for us to switch out of. He did not care about the obvious concerns we had about the unacceptable condition of the room. I told him we would be leaving after grabbing our bags. When I went back I told him I had contracted orbitz and they should be calling him, during this wait he had now offered me a different room with twin beds, I told him no, our original room had 1 king bed not twin beds. At this point he still refused to give me a refund. My fiancé also saw blood on the tissues from the box in the room. We did not stay here.

Good value for the location. Had a nice time staying there. Would recommend.

Older hotel without any updates. My room had a funky smell, but you get used to it after a few minutes. The bathroom above my room leaked and water dripped all over my luggage from the ceiling. They moved me to another room, but it was a huge hassle.

Only option available at the time. Sheets had a small amount of hair on them from another person, carpet was heavily stained and worn, bathroom had some mold. Only plus was that the bed was somewhat comfortable and they had a large TV.

Nice and close to Stanford 🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎎🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈

The room was just a nice, basic hotel room and we enjoyed a good, simple breakfast each morning. We had a chance to use the pool. It was a little chilly, but the surrounding garden was nice. If you're expecting the Ritz, you might be disappointed, but it was a great, comfy stay for our family.

Room had a Oder to it when first walked in like trying to cover something up. Put everything worked fine air shower tv fridge Worth the cheap price.

This hotel is in a state of disrepair. Our room smelled absolutely horrible -- people obviously smoked in it and it was never fumigated properly afterward. The paint and plaster are peeling, and we saw a couple of cockroaches.
