    This is a very clean, conveniently-located hotel just blocks from Stanford. The accommodations were pleasant. Lobby area clean and inviting. Hotel staff was very courteous, attentive, and helpful. Bonus was the free breakfast with plenty of options. I will definitely return to this property.

    Great location near Stanford! Friendly staff, great service and entertainment such as lap jacuzzi, pool table, ping pong table and entertainment room. Complimentary parking and next door to safeway for a hungry football player.
