This isn't a luxury hotel, but it's secure (24-hour security checking your license against the guest list before driving through the gate), it's clean, and it's the most reasonably priced place in the area. The breakfast is better than your average hotel, and it's included in the rate. Water, teas, coffee...all are available 24/7. Don't mistake this for the Stanford Inn (which is a complete pit). I won't stay anywhere but the Stanford Guest House when I have medical appointments at Stanford. The staff are always friendly, and it's beginning to feel a bit like home to me. It's a great place for those with prolonged stays, as it even has an in-house laundry facility.
