I never had a better stay in a hotel in all my life. The place is wonderful, the staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms are clean and cozy. But the most important thing is the whole atmosphere – quiet and comfortable, just like at home. I strictly recommend this hotel to everyone who is planning his visit.

Great place to stay near Stanford. Small but has everything you need. Breakfast is small but hot with eggs, bacon, sausages, pastry, oatmeal. Hot tub is very nice. Parking is ample. Nearby safeway market and pharmacy. 5 min drive to Stanford. Staff extremely helpful

Hotel Lucent is amazing. I loved it. Simple yet amazing. It is the "W" but stripped down to essentials and with a warm and friendly functional feel. My friend lived on the road next to the hotel and the area was nice quaint and with easy convenient access to San Francisco.

Breakfast is very basic...But fine for a...

Starbucks coffee machine available 24/7. Conveniently located around the corner from Stanford Shopping Centre. A short hop to SFO international airport. Very new installations, friendly staff. The ideal place to stay if you have business to do in Silicon Valley.

In the heart of Menlo Park, this is an updated, clean, and well priced hotel with friendly and helpful staff! This is a must stay! The breakfast was an added plus and we enjoyed the billiards area in the evenings.

I had a wonderful time here together with my family! Good location to Stanford University and convenient to shop in Safeway! Good breakfast, clean rooms, lovely fitness center and the most impressive is the smiles from the reception desk! I love the fitness center coz I could use the facilities there very happily even though it was raining outside:)

I had reserved a room for a holiday week on Expedia, but when I arrived, the clerk on duty said there was no record of my reservation. After examining my printout, he said the reservation hadn't gone through to the Hotel. He apologized, said it would take a few minutes and had me sit in their nice lounge and offered...

I would highly recommend Hotel Lucent. The staff were excellent, the rooms were very clean and well maintained and the location was perfect. The overall value of the hotel was tremendous although I did book through an agent. For cleanliness, convenience, excellent staff at a decent price I would definitely recommend this hotel.

I normally stay in corporate hotels and was not sure what to expect, but the Lucent was close to where I was working. The staff was super courteous. Great amenities. Room and bathroom were very nice. I was unable to sit out on the patio and enjoy the fireplace. I will definitely stay here again if I am in the...
