Very little walking space between bed and refrig/microwave. Arms on chairs seemed soiled. Too many doilies.
Helpful staff and convenient location
Room seemed run down. Smelled like there had been smoked in there. Cleaning was fine but due to the standard of the room it felt dirty
Easy check-in, staff very nice and helpful. Location good for my needs
It appears that they try to clean and maintain the rooms well, but my room had a distinct scent that was pretty bad. Sort of a stale basement smell. I do have a sensitive nose, but could smell it on my clothes (and they were hung up, not put on the bed or chair) all day, and the smell was there when I opened my suitcase after I got home. I might expect this from a sub $100 room, but not a $200 room.
Front desk staff & location
Carpet, drapes, bed coverings way past overdue for replacement. Afraid to touch anything. There's a reason it was the last room available within a 20 mile radius of Mountain View.
Room had overpowering deodorizer that was nauseating. What were they masking? Checked in after long work day or I would have asked for a move
Not going to pretend this place is a hidden 5-star resort at a budget price, it isn't, but for what and where it is it's excellent. Friendly staff, good location, good wifi. Rooms are decorated rather like my Aunt Mildred (think lace) but at least someone's made an effort. It feels like home. Not /my/ home, but home nevertheless. Will stay here again.
The staff were very friendly. The coffee was excellent! The room was clean and the location is very central. Interesting if travelling to any tourist areas, you are going in the opposite direction of the traffic volume. This is a bonus.
Was pleasantly surprised at the size of the room. Bed was nice and big. Staff very friendly and efficient.
Everything was satisfactory
Room had dirty sticky carpet
artwork and location
small room & poor Wi-Fi
Very friendly staff. Close and convenient location. Room nice and clean.
Pillows way to large and hard. Bathroom antiquated.
On the street side traffic noise is really loud, the room smelled slightly sour
Location, friendly staff, clean comfortable room
Staff were very helpful. Room was of good quality, clean and well presented. Good base for just about anywhere near Palo Alto
I liked the size of the room and the fact that it had a large refrigerator and a very nice microwave oven. The staff was extremely kind and helpful.
The air conditioner was so noisy that I had to turn it off at night so I could sleep. It was too easy to hear other guests talking and moving around the facility.
Very, clean, safe and comfortable.
+ nice and clean room + nice staff
- way too expensive, but this is mostly a "pecularity" of the whole area
It's a tired old motel. One should be able to do better. Try to avoid tripping over the ledge in the doorway to the office.
Location Price Staff Cleanliness
Small room Microwave, Coffee Maker, etc... crammed into makeshift space.
Location was convenient. Fairly clean. Served the purpose of a (somewhat) affordable place that was clean and comfortable enough. Huge bed.
The door to the room was very difficult to open and I had to slam my body against it to open/close it. The deadbolt didn't lock either, but there was an added lock at least or I would have asked for another room.
Rooms got cleaned and made up everyday for the most part. quiet and clean parking lot off the street.
Kitchen so small it was unusable. and a little out dated. beds where made up very quickly had some of our pillows still between the sheets.
Cleanness, comfort, nice knowledgeable staff
Loved the Hotel Manager Location close enough to Stanford
