Positive Reviews

Great access to Stanford

If you need to be near Stanford, this is an easy place to stay because it's about 10 minutes away. Also, the inn is situated near local mom-and-pop restaurants, shops and Whole Foods Market.

Good variety for breakfast

The breakfast buffet was popular amongst guests who said it was generous and available for long hours. They said it contained: waffles, eggs, sausage, pancakes, cereal, a variety of breads items, coffee and juice. If you can't stay to eat, the inn provides a to-go bag.

Excellent housekeeping service

Despite some complaints about the aging state of the inn, most guests said that the housekeeping staff did a good job of keeping the rooms very clean and spotless. They said it seemed like the housekeeping crew did as best as they could to make the rooms comfortable.

Negative Reviews

Reviews about strange odor

There have been complaints about strange odors emanating from the guest rooms. Some visitors complained that the rooms smelled like heavy sweat and that the stench overwhelmed them. Others thought the odor was more like a smelly, old carpet mixed with cigarette stench.

Pricey for what you get

Guests expressed surprise at the condition and the value of the hotel for the rate they paid. Many said the accommodations are more like a motel than a hotel, as the room doors lead to an outdoors walkway and there's a significant amount of street noise being on El Camino Real.

A bit worn down

Although the rooms are spacious and clean, they are very basic and no-frills. Things are not broken or dirty, but there's a worn-down quality to the hotel, guests say. It didn't give off a necessarily pleasant vibe.
