Only the queen bed for all rooms. The front desk staff is not patient and not friendly.

Don't expect any hospitality from the front desk
Male receptionist at the front desk speaks with a monotone and won't even greet or look at you. Rushes through his script at high speed and just wants to get you out of his way.
jp5 night business trip
Very good 8.0
The hotel location is great, close to restaurants, main street and 2 minutes walking from the train station. It's a small hotel, with small rooms, enough if you are just on a quick business trip and not planning to spend any time in the hotel apart from sleeping. The room was very clean but with almost no storage to keep my clothes. Breakfast was ok if you wake up early (6am) otherwise the breakfast space is that small (literally 2 small tables) that you won't have much space. For me it was perfect as I woke up at 6am and had breakfast alone with all the fresh food and coffee ready just for me ;-)

Fair 4.0
Bad customer service
As soon as I arrived the person at the front desk was extremely rude to me her name is Des. She would not allow me to use the restroom until it was checkin time. I told her i just drove 6 hours and would appreciate using the restooom, she declined it. Then she gave me a terible time about parking. It was a nightmare. My son attends Stanford. I was visiting him and needed to hurry to go to his presentation, she did everything in her power to delay me and make thigs difficult.

My only complaint is that parking is challenging. Otherwise my stay was quite nice.

Central Location Near Stanford
Small and clean room, it was fine for my daughter and I but only stayed for one night. It’s perfect for two people who are there to visit Stanford Campus.
Marielena, us1 night family trip

Just a quick getaway
My wife and I did a quick overnighter. The hotel was small and the room was small. It was very adequate for the two of us for the night but any longer would be much too cramped.
Steve, us1 night romance trip
Poor 2.0
Horrible Hotel
Right adjacent to a club called "the patio." So expect noise all night. The room is the size of a shoe box, and the check in takes forever. Beds are also super uncomfotable.
Adam, us2 night trip
Very good 8.0
Very good value. Enjoyable and very European feel to the hotel. Desk space in room was a bit small to work.

Has potential, but has gone down hill
Hotel Keen is ok. I've stayed there a couple of times, but this last time there were issues. The room was not particularly clean, and there wasn't even toilet paper in the room when I arrived. The breakfast was not particularly well-stocked, and the tea water was cold. I recommend looking elsewhere, which is unfortunate because the location is quite convenient.
