Thought it was closer to Stanford main quad as we were there for a college visit. You actually enter through the security gate for SLAC, but that was OK. Guards were very nice and helpful. Up on a hilltop with lovely, peaceful, beautiful views. Air smelled of pine and eucalyptus. Short walk up the hill to the Harvest Cafe was a treat. Breakfast included in your stay. Oats w/brown sugar and raisins, pastries, fruit, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, cereal and great coffee was just the ticket. Rooms are small but we fit 3 comfortably. Beds comfy, pillows not, bathroom was ADA so it was large, lighting adequate. I think the people that stay there keep to themselves. Never a peep from anyone even though it was full. Loved the convenient laundry room. Saw the shuttle used a lot but we didn't need it. Parking was ample.
