Fair 4.0
It feels like a motel than a hotel. Room is small and bad sound proof. I personally think it’s overpriced.

Friendly helpful staff.
My wife was in the Stanford area for work, I joined her on the second night. The room was clean and as advertised, the breakfast met our needs, scrambled eggs, sausages, tater tots, waffles,toast, pastries, cereal, yogurt, fruit and coffee, plus a few other things. Staff were all friendly and helpful. We're just not used to the high prices in the area for hotels.

Fair 4.0
Very dated and worn out furniture and bedrooms. At night you can hear trains passing by. Extremely expensive for what it offers.

Good 6.0
Nice hotel close to Stanford University.
As for as hotels go it was a 3.6 out of 5 . It was clean and comfortable . The electric heater\air conditioner was a bit loud and was old and difficult to set. I really didn't like the setup of the bathroom where there is no sink so to wash your hands you have to open the door and wash your hands in the main part of the room where there is a sink.

A nice hotel close to Standford University
It is a nice and clean hotel, located only a few minutes drive to Standford Universtiy and other big companies in Silicon Valley; close to the highways, with free parking, free Internet wifi, complementary breakfast. Did not see homeless people around the hotel.

Good 6.0
Location and service was fine, however, I got very little sleep and was very sore the following day because of how uncomfortable the mattress was. Highly recommend updating.

Very Good 8.0
considerate staff
This is an older hotel and the bathroom needs remodeling, but overall and it was clean throughout. We were there for a medical procedure at Stanford and they allowed me to stay an hour after checkout time until it was time to pick up my husband. They were closely following COVID 19 guidelines.

Solid room for a one night stay!
Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Room was clean, morning breakfast was tasty. My only down check was the physical condition of the room, as there were several areas where the wallpaper had been replaced (poorly done) and curtain kept closed by what appeared to be chewing gum.

Very Good 8.0
Had a good grab n go breakfast. Coffee pot leaked. Nice staff. Poor cell reception, had to answer phone from outside the room. Comfortable bed. A bunch of pros and cons.

I have to travel from Reno every 3 months for treatment at Stanford and I will be staying here! We were very happy. The beds were comfortable, the room was quiet and clean. It was great.
