Poor 2.0
Terrible Place
This motel is way over priced for the conditions of the room I had. The light and fan in the bathroom didn’t work, the room smelled terrible and one of the outlets wouldn’t work unless then light switch was on so I had to unscrew the light bulb in order to sleep while charging my phone. The room felt like it was storage for extra furniture because there was a bedside table tucked under a desk that was pretty unusable. The carpet just looked old and gross. Ended up cutting my reservation early to find another place to stay!

Adequate - clean and comfortable
Easy check in. Quiet setting. Close to Stanford Medical Center which was the purpose of our trip. Rooms were dated but clean and comfortable. Continental breakfast - adequate - don't expect more. Presentation of breakfast choices, clean and orderly. Restaurants nearby. Pricey but probably not for the area. Friendly staff.

Furniture was old and beds just fair. First room was not nice at all but they moved me to a different room and the experience was better.

In serious need of refurbishing
This motel is in serious need of refurbishing. I stayed here a decade ago, and it has not improved at all since then. They could start by buying new linens so that the bedsheets look clean and inviting instead of tired and threadbare.

Keep looking
I woke up to a shower flooded with someone's else's toilet waste. I went to the lobby they didn't even apologize but addresses the issue. While I was on a conf call in my room since it made me late to work. Not ideal. Bed was awful, room smelled like smoke. Good area though. I didn't even shower the next day because I was concerned the tub wasnt cleaned sufficiently.

Comfortable basic hotel
The exterior doesn't look very good, but the room was very comfortable. Breakfast was seriously lacking, cold cereal and toast isn't breakfast. Pool was clean and very nice. Staff was helpful and friendly.
