The family that runs this place could not be any nicer. It's an old building that has been redone with a lot of care. You notice little things that are done right. The room is small but perfectly comfortable with chair, desk, TV, mini fridge, etc. There are great restaurants in the area, the neighborhood is safe and walkable. My...

The room was at least clean when I arrived. Linens were not changed at all during a 4 night venture here for business. The location was nice and the price was right was about all that was right. Pictures did not reflect what was rented. Seems a single room was renovated and that is the one that they show.

Dear Keith, Your assumption that we have only renovated one room and have posted only the photos of that room is false. Your statement 'was about all that was right' is false and misleading. You did not book our Standard nor Signature Room. Please check your reservation details and you will find you chose, booked and paid for the ECONOMY...

This is another one of those 1950's\1960s motels that has been refinished to appear to be a more upscale property in order to charge high-end hotel rates. If this were any location other than Palo Alto, there would be no way you would pay over $250\night for these rooms, but since it is Palo Alto you have no choice. Is...

Check-in was super friendly. Although a motel, it has a family type ambiance. All rooms are on ground level. Room was super clean - comfortable bed-linen.I saw the hotel the mixed reviews and was a little concerned b4 I arrived. I need not have been concerned. If your disposition is to see the glass as half full... then you will...

The room was okay and clean - nothing to complain or brag about. However, the staff made it a point to make the 4-night stay end in a nightmare. They added on unnecessary charges without informing me, and when I questioned about it politely at the checkout, the manager started raising his voice, and then out of nowhere asked me...

Mr. Kumar, You did not abide by our hotel policies and thus penalized. I had notified/warned you of the charges on the first day out of courtesy. Your comments are false and defamatory. We cater to professional business clients only. Mike, GM

Okay this is a more motel than hotel but don't let this put you off. The owner checked me in and made me feel very welcome and informed me that he had already upgraded my room. The room I was given was clean and well maintained. The room service was very efficient too. One thing which a lot of hotels...

The room was beautiful... but the carpet had a weird rubbery feel, the walls thin and the heater noisy. But it's impossible to find a room for less than a fortune in Palo Alto and that was the only place I could find!

It's a great, family-run establishment with all the necessities - clean rooms, clean bathrooms, iron, hair dryer, flat screen TV. A great hidden gem that I would recommend to anyone looking for a no-frills, no-nonsense place to stay in Palo Alto.

I see the other reviews and they seem a bit harsh. I was actually surprised that the room was as clean as it was. I looked for 'surprises' and couldn't find any. Granted, this isn't the Hilton. However, it had a very clean bathroom/shower, nice clean/big bed, huge TV (that I never used), a clean/working iron/ironing board and air conditioning...
