The room was at least clean when I arrived. Linens were not changed at all during a 4 night venture here for business. The location was nice and the price was right was about all that was right. Pictures did not reflect what was rented. Seems a single room was renovated and that is the one that they show.

This is another one of those 1950's\1960s motels that has been refinished to appear to be a more upscale property in order to charge high-end hotel rates. If this were any location other than Palo Alto, there would be no way you would pay over $250\night for these rooms, but since it is Palo Alto you have no choice. Is...

Check-in was super friendly. Although a motel, it has a family type ambiance. All rooms are on ground level. Room was super clean - comfortable bed-linen.I saw the hotel the mixed reviews and was a little concerned b4 I arrived. I need not have been concerned.

The room was okay and clean - nothing to complain or brag about. However, the staff made it a point to make the 4-night stay end in a nightmare. They added on unnecessary charges without informing me, and when I questioned about it politely at the checkout, the manager started raising his voice, and then out of nowhere asked me...

Mr. Kumar, There is no need to make false and defamatory comments because you were penalized for neglecting our policies, those which you were made aware of on the first day by the Manager (me). Further, given your review it's ironic you stayed all 4 nights without any complaints, especially when you claim the staff was rude and were provided...

Okay this is a more motel than hotel but don't let this put you off. The owner checked me in and made me feel very welcome and informed me that he had already upgraded my room.

The room was beautiful... but the carpet had a weird rubbery feel, the walls thin and the heater noisy. But it's impossible to find a room for less than a fortune in Palo Alto and that was the only place I could find!

It's a great, family-run establishment with all the necessities - clean rooms, clean bathrooms, iron, hair dryer, flat screen TV. A great hidden gem that I would recommend to anyone looking for a no-frills, no-nonsense place to stay in Palo Alto.

I see the other reviews and they seem a bit harsh. I was actually surprised that the room was as clean as it was. I looked for 'surprises' and couldn't find any. Granted, this isn't the Hilton.

Do not book this MOTEL. It is not a hotel and the rate at $275 a night is outrageous. I arrived and then spent the next 2 hours trying to find somewhere else to stay.
