I've never seen so many insects in a $230/night hotel. There was a spider in the bed and (one) silverfish on the floor. I travel and stay in hotels often enough to know this is unusual. No, I will not stay again.

This hotel is a bit off the beaten path but only a 10 minute walk into town which was fine with me considering that the fantastic weather/temperature was perfect for a walk. My room was clean and the breakfast in the morning was perfect. I will definitely stay here the next time I'm in Menlo!

Great locale in Menlo Park! Lots of eateries, coffee houses. The only thing lacking here was a laundry room . Loved Draegers. We spent a lot of time with family that lived close by and yet getting in and around SF was fairly easy too.

We stayed here last week & found it to be quite nice in that 1970's way. Well maintained, thoughtfully laid out, and amazingly quiet considering the traffic nightmare on the streets. Beware that the train does go by on a regular basis, but we love the sound of trains so all was fine for us. That 70's part that we...

The Red Cottage Inn is a small hotel situated about 100 yards off the highway and behind some other buildings. I had to look carefully for their sign (faded red) on the street. to turn in at the right location. On grounds there is no grass to speak of (lot of concrete) but there are potted geraniums everywhere and both...

My son and I was so impressed with this very cute, clean, and quite hotel. The front desk clerk was amazing. We came to check out one of the colleges in the area and after a long flight this hotel was what the doctor ordered. If you forget to bring anything they have you covered even down to the umbrella.

We were visiting Stanford, about 15 minutes from here. It was clean and quiet. Good restaurants in Menlo Park about 10 minutes from here. There is a pool, no hot tub. Had a tiny patio with table on premium king room.

I have stayed in quite a few different hotels in the Palo Alto area, from Mountain View to Menlo Park. Red Cottage Inn is one of the better appointed facilities. It is clean, well maintained and fairly new (compared to others). The rooms are small-ish, but comfortable. We were on the second floor overlooking the pool. For the price, it...

This property is off of the main road in Menlo Park and you do feel like you are tucked away and protected. I agree the office staff is not overtly friendly, but they were helpful, and I don't need them to be my best friends. Most of the rooms are side-by-side facing a pretty patio area - single height so...

Room was fine, but loud. I could hear people talking thru the walls. Not close to anything, but traveling alone I felt pretty safe. Bedding was nice. bath amenities were ok. did have a restaurant close by.
