We were looking forward to a special find with the Red Cottatge Inn, but we got a very run of the mill experience. The location is great for Menlo Park and Stanford and the room was very clean with a cute patio. That's about it.
While there was an HD, flat screen TV in the room, the property, apparently, does not subscribe to HD cable, so we had to watch the Olympics (it was Opening Ceremonies) on fuzzy analog.
There are no electrical outlets in the bathroom and the hairdryer is the small, travel size. The whole point of supplying a hair dryer is so that one either doesn't have to pack one or doesn't have to settle for a small travel size.
Breakfast was unremarkable with baked goods that tasted like they had been frozen and cereal. We headed to the Starbuck's down the street instead. The front desk staff wasn't particularly friendly, although not surly either. Again, adequate and non-commital. On the plus side, it was a quiet property and the bed was comfortable.
Adequate seems to be the best description for our experience. We have a nephew going to Stanford next year and were hoping this would be our place. We'll keep looking.
