For the price I guess you can't really complain, but this is a place to lay your head, and no more. Walls are paper-thin; I could hear all the conversation from the room next door and hear them move around the room. When I was on the phone at 5am due to jet lag I found myself whispering so as...

Just clean enough. Beds were good and linen clean. Cellophaned sweet rolls were silly. Remember that breakfast is going to cost you at least $15 more per person, so think about spending the extra on a nicer place with breakfast. On the other hand, it is next door to Hobee's, one of the truly great places to eat. The WiFi...

We weren't expecting much, but it really is a decent place to stay, far enough away but relatively easy access to US-101 and 40 minutes from downtown San Francisco and 15 minutes from San Jose Airport. "Free" breakfast consits of packaged sweet rolls, bottles of OJ and a container of water for the in-room coffee maker. Refrigerator, microwave and satellite...

Given the name, I had low expectations. They were exceeded. Room is very clean. Furniture is adequate if dated, bed was comfortable. Office staff is friendly and helpful. Two minor complaints - the WiFi capacity isn't enough, so it was really slow in the evening (although I'm writing this very early in the morning, and it's fine now - which...

Everything was so OVER-priced this week when I traveled for business to Palo Alto, my Travel Agent said "I've never put anyone here before, but there is really nothing available". It's an older "drive up type" motel, but has everything I need....very clean, free wifi, free water bottles, quiet, and they even give you 2 danishes for breakfast each day....

this is the 2nd time we've stayed at this motel. Both times it has been spotlessly clean, quiet and comfortable. We chose it for proximity to medical appointments and for price. I have paid considerably more for less quality in other places. Best rooms for quiet are at the end of the U-shaped layout of the wings. Bonus for people...

After reading the reviews, I wasn't excited about staying at this hotel. However, my experience turned out to be much better than expected. While this is not a fancy hotel, it is clean and comfortable. For a brief stay, it was just fine and very budget-friendly. The exterior of this America's Best Value Inn is a tad depressing, but after...

Room was ready. Guests next door smoking outside. Guest in room was shouting to guest smoking outside. Later, 11:30 pm, a loud smoking party ensued. Called front desk clerk to let him know. Rather than intervene, he invited me to leave.

Clean hotel. We got a non-smoking room and I was with my mom and sister. Safe location, daily housekeeping. The owner helped us with late check-in and also received a fax on our behalf! Definitely recommend staying here.

Like to stay here. Very clean and quiet! I sleep during the day and get good rest at this hotel. Would recommend for anyone wanting to stay in Palo Alto and be near Stanford University or Stanford Hospital and Clinics.
