Reviewed 21 January 2016

I was so pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The place has been recently fully renovated. The rooms are first rate, and there is a cool outdoor patio. The place also had a great wine selection, which I did not expect. Combine that with a friendly staff and this place is my new go-to in Palo Alto.

A well done rehab but the shower door allowed water to build up on he bathroom floor ans the drain was too slow. The staff was very nice and helpful. The room should have more light. Good location - off El Camino..

The work that has been done to this hotel compared to what it used to be is trans-formative. These guys did a great job overall, the patio area is well appointed with a large fireplace and cool water feature. The lobby has a modern cool look to it, you can actually check in at the bar.

The place is located close to El Camino Real and only 10-15min away from Stanford by car. The architecture is kind of motel style, but the rooms have modern design and are quite new. However, the room was not very big and not much space to store your luggage. Also, unless you lower the window shades, everyone walking by can...

There are many things that I loved about this Motor Inn turned hip, trendy motel. First, the parking is convenient and the little office/bar/lounge is convenient to the rest of the building. Second, the rooms were clean, minimalist, and really fresh and sharp and the internet worked great. Third, comfortable beds and great TVs. Fourth, great bathrooms. We will stay...

My first reaction when I got out of the cab was "Holy Crap - is this a motel 6?" But the minute I walked into the stylish small lobby, I started feeling way better. The check in is at the bar - how cool is that. Rooms are really nicely done - they took a old quality inn and updated...

The entire front desk staff was knowledgeable and welcoming. They tuned in to what we were looking for and made suggestions that were spot on! The property was beautiful, and all of the amenities were above and beyond excellent. Tasty continental breakfast the next day made for a perfect sendoff.
