This is a lovely, quiet Inn a few hundred feet off the main highway. The inn is friendly and accommodating. In the room there is a microwave, refrigerator, coffee pot. Good wifi and comfortable. The inn also provides a cold item breakfast that is quite nice. It is about a mile walk to downtown Menlo Park with a great selection...

This hotel (motel) is decent. It provides two bottles of free water, free parking, and free (but unreliable) WiFi. There is also a refrigerator and microwave. This is the second time I've stayed here this year. The unfortunate aspects are: 1) the walls are paper thin. I was up till 2 AM due to people outside at the pool area...

Room was quiet and had a private patio. Shower and air conditioning were perfect. Coffee in morning with continental breakfast was excellent. Also coffee and cookies at night were a pleasure. Less than 20 minutes to Stanford.

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.
