Would never stay agai
Hotel is not in any way shape good. No heat, shower had no hot water, only hot was from sink, just very very run down and not worth the nightly fee (which was terribly high)

Fair 4.0
I liked the convenience of having to sleep in my clothes as i was too nervous to touch the sheets. Was easy to get up & leave the second i woke up.

Terrible Place
This motel is way over priced for the conditions of the room I had. The light and fan in the bathroom didn’t work, the room smelled terrible and one of the outlets wouldn’t work unless then light switch was on so I had to unscrew the light bulb in order to sleep while charging my phone. The room felt like it was storage for extra furniture because there was a bedside table tucked under a desk that was pretty unusable. The carpet just looked old and gross. Ended up cutting my reservation early to find another place to stay!

Adequate - clean and comfortable
Easy check in. Quiet setting. Close to Stanford Medical Center which was the purpose of our trip. Rooms were dated but clean and comfortable. Continental breakfast - adequate - don't expect more. Presentation of breakfast choices, clean and orderly. Restaurants nearby. Pricey but probably not for the area. Friendly staff.

Furniture was old and beds just fair. First room was not nice at all but they moved me to a different room and the experience was better.

Stayed here for the second time because it is a reasonably priced room for a place to spend the night near the event I was attending. I did not partake of the inferior "breakfast" and went to Hobbies instead.
Mike, us1 night trip
Good 6.0
When we arrived in the room, we discovered that half of one of the double beds was soaking wet. I went to shut the drapes to discover that both sliding windows were unlocked, and the bathroom window was both unlocked and open. As the room was on the ground floor, that's very unsafe. When we first arrived, we noticed the bedroom door was wide open, with nobody inside, so we left. On our return, 90 minutes later, the room door was STILL wide open. Nobody inside. On the plus side, it is very affordable. The beds were comfortable. We were warm and dry (if I slept on the other side of the bed). The TV had lots of channels, altho no way to use the Guide!! It's good for one night. More than that and I'd have been pretty unhappy.

Never Again! OMG! Warning: The bed mattress was the worst ever! Very old and lumpy. The wifi was horrible, I finally gave up. The "Free Breakfast" is actually a pathetic "Continental Breakfast". The balcony upstairs is held together with little wooden stakes (See Pic). AC/Heater knob missing. Place is run down badly. Needs major renovation, but I doubt if they will spend any money on this place. I will NEVER stay here again.
