Loved everything about it, especially relaxing in the courtyard. Rooms were clean and spacious with modern amenities. Breakfast was decent. Recommend it for anyone, whether on business, visiting the university, or passing through the area.

Very close to Stanford and walking distance to plenty of nice restaurants and a Safeway next door! Rooms were very clean and modern. Nice firepit and outside area. Breakfast was excellent. The staff were all friendly and helpful.

I reserved for a group of people and had to call several times to finally get the reservation done and get confirmation for all guests even though I had already secured the reservation with my credit card. I sent about 10 emails until I finally got a response. Reception staff was always very unfriendly. The guests gave me the feedback...

We were somewhat hesitant about booking a hotel on busy El Camino Real and very pleased we had faith in the TripAdvisor reviews. Our room, adequate in size, was quiet. The hotel looked and smelled clean and fresh. This is a redo of an older hotel and as a frequent traveler I appreciate all the thought and effort that went...

I needed to go to Silicon Valley for work and no one had heard of this hotel, but given the reviews and the proximity to our office, I figured I'd give it a try. I'm glad I did! The hotel was only about a 20 minute drive from the airport (late night, with no traffic) and was a great area....

Some of the rooms were very small and breakfast was very limited. I liked the decor and the location was excellent for us. The staff was friendly and the rooms were updated and clean. I would stay there again.

This place is great. Free hot and cold breakfast (bacon, eggs, bagels and cream cheese, etc), a large and spacious hot tub spa in the courtyard the can fit 20+ people so there is always room, and a firepit that is lit well into the night. The rooms are very sharp and modern, a bit small but very comfortable. A...

Spent one night here. The person at check in gave us a tour of the hotel. She was very friendly. Everything was neat and clean. We were in room 101 which is an ADA compliant room. Big spaces, comfortable bed. Would book again. Breakfast included eggs, meats, cereal, coffee, juice, and more.
