    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.

    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...More

    Yes! Breakfast isn't anything fancy but there is fruit, yogurt, oatmeal, muffins. Fresh coffee all day and cookies in the afternoon.
