          This is an old building furnished with antiques rather than a modern hotel. The entrance is on Ash around the corner from California. Enter the door, walk up a flight of stairs, follow the signs to the "front" desk. If it is not staffed, ring...More

          This a basic, no-frills accommodation in downtown Palo Alto that is convenient to the Stanford campus. The facility is showing its age but is basically clean and sound. We found the shower to be laughably small - one could not turn around without hitting the...More

          We stayed at the Hotel California for the weekend of Stanford graduation. I found the hotel online and was disheartened by some of the older reviews, so I called and spoke with the manager, who is brand new. We had a delightful conversation--resulting in our...More

          Albeit clean, this is more of a hostel than a hotel. Rooms and decor are 'early thrift shop', lighting may or may not work, and the electrical code is questionable (extension cords and outlet multipliers are used generously). If you arrive after 5:00p you will...More
