Very nice and welcoming

Liked: Staff was fabulous, nice pool area, spacious room and very clean. I loved the selection of free tea and coffee and when I mentioned to the staff how much I liked one kind of the tea, they gave me a box of it to take home!
Disliked: Bit noisy air condition but we didn't need to use it

Basic but clean room, ok...

Liked: Having searched for a 2 night stay on and received a quote for the total amount payable I was surprised when the booking confirmation message arrived stating only a 1 night stay for the same quoted price.
Disliked: Room cramped for 4 of us

Very pleasant and an excellent...

Liked: Room was clean and quiet.
Disliked: The arm chair in the room was OK for short periods of time but my wife had to sleep in the chair due to recent shoulder surgery. I can't blame the hotel for this......

A good but somewhat costly...

Liked: Perfect location along Camino Real to do business around Palo Alto. Very easy to find and plenty of parking lots. Huge, comfortable and clean room.
Disliked: I would have appreciated to have a little more coffee and tea in the room. The surrounding on the parking lot is not to appealing. Moreover, the room is not necessarily very cheap.

Place to crash, but won't...

Liked: The free parking.
Disliked: I can't believe I spent over $200 for this room. In any other town this would be 1 star $60 accomodations. The Ikea quilt was comfy and the AC worked. But the bathroom tub was so dingey I couldn't tell if it had been cleaned. There was no vent fan in the bathroom. The room proportions were circa 1950.
