I stayed at this guest house after driving my son back up to Stanford after a school break and was pleasantly surprised at how lovely it was. I didn't know what to expect at such a low price. My room was small like a single dorm room might be but had everything I needed and was clean, quiet and comfortable. The breakfast just across the road was wonderful as it offered much more than a standard continental breakfast fare with a choice of hot entrees should you choose to indulge. Staff was extremely friendly. I've not had an opportunity to return here but have tried a few times to get a reservation on return trips to Stanford. If you plan on travelling here during any major events including moving into and out of dorms, graduation, football games, book way in advance. If they have availability I'll stay here first over any other nearby hotel. Value for room is a fair value - not overpriced like many hotels in the area with similar accommodation but the value for service is over the top!
