Very clean, very friendly staff.

It had a clean, comfortable, large room with all of the standard amenities one would expect for a mid priced hotel/motel.

The facility is a little dated, but has a lot of charm. The bathroom counters/floors were recently redone and beautiful. With some upgrades like new carpet, etc....this place is would be fabulous.
The owners were very friendly and helpful in all ways. They were genuine and very hospitable to all their guests. I would definitely stay here again. Conveniently located near Stanford and free parking and wifi were wonderful. Breakfast was nice and coffee and tea available all day long. We were treated like family here!

I suppose Palo Alto is one of those places where you must either shell out immense amounts for a luxury experience that you don't want or can't afford, or else overpay even as you're trying to save money. This hotel was one of the five worst hotel experiences in my life, and I've had a thousand or more. Management appears not to have updated or upgraded facilities in decades. There was a persistent odor. I felt mildly repulsed in using the room, especially any experience involving water (toilet, shower, even the sink). I'll take my chances with any other hotel near Stanford.

the owners and staff were very friendly. We were able to walk to many good restaurants and to dry cleaners. Centrally located to all the events of the wedding. Parking available.

The staff at this hotel are very friendly and helpful, which makes all the difference - I arrived late one night when all the parking had been taken and the concierge came out to direct me to a convenient parking spot close by. The rooms are spacious and well-decorated. Even though the hotel is on a main road, the room could be made quiet and dark for comfortable napping during the day. I had not realized the room that I booked had a full kitchenette - I didn't need it for my business trip but I can imagine it would make all the difference on a longer trip. The pool is small but clean and refreshing. Excellent spot!

The place felt a bit dirty because it had very very old sheets, furniture and interior.
I liked the location.
March 11, 2015
Location is bad. You cannot really walk to Stanford University (takes 30 min) you have to take buses, and the only bus that passes here seems to be 22. No value for money. Really expensive
Comfort and Cleanliness are beyond expectation.

Bedspread possibly vintage 1962, but still comfortable. This is a roadside motel on a busy street, but can't beat the location.
Unbelievably friendly helpful staff, convenient location (15 min walk to Caltrain, restaurants, university, etc)

Very little walking space between bed and refrig/microwave. Arms on chairs seemed soiled. Too many doilies.
February 15, 2015
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
Helpful staff and convenient location

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.
Easy check-in, staff very nice and helpful. Location good for my needs

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.

Everything was satisfactory
Was pleasantly surprised at the size of the room. Bed was nice and big. Staff very friendly and efficient.
