“Well Managed Motel near Menlo/Palo Alto”
Reviewed 19 May 2013

We stay here often and are always pleased. Family run by very attentive family. On El Camino Real but rooms are quiet and everything works. Free wifi. Always something to eat at breakfast.
Make your own waffles. When I loose something they always find it! Parking and bringing luggage to the room is always easy. Now I remember why they invented motels! Computer in lobby never very busy. Print out your bording pass.

Room Tip: all rooms are quiet. try for ground floor if much luggage. Can walk to restaurants and Beltramos.

We had a lovely stay. The rooms were large, clean, and comfortable. It included a microwave, Tv, and Keurig machine. We would stay there again. They offer Dvds, wifi, dry cleaning, laundry service, and a nice continental breakfast.

Rooms are nice and clean. Internet works great.

It is walking distance from Menlo station - Caltrain. There are excellent restaurants in downtown Menlo Park which is just two block away.

Good coffee, excellent breakfast. And the people are friendly and willing to please. I stayed there for 10 days once, they helped with my laundry.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms away from El Camino Real.

Menlo Park Inn is basically a regular motel, which was upgraded to resemble a 3 star property. From outside, it's a under $100/night motel, fronting El Camino Blvd. The rooms, however, are more of a Hilton class. Elegant furnishings; nice bathroom amenities. The service is very nice and friendly. Nice breakfast in the office.

Was there for work and this was a great place. Super clean rooms and the service was great. If you don't car for a pool and just want a good clean room then I highly suggest it. Wifi was really good too.

Great room at a great price. We were looking to tour Stanford and other campuses in the Bay Area, and this was very close not only to campus, but also to Palo Alto and an upscale mall. Beds were comfortable and rooms were spacious. Breakfast was plentiful and good for three teenage boys. Only drawbacks were an eating area that was a little cramped with a party of 6 and a maids' cart that was right outside our room during most of the daytime hours. Overall a good value.

I was visiting Stanford so stayed here for 3 - 4 nights each on two separate occasions. Menlo park inn is located within walking distance from the Caltrain station, and only a few minutes drive from the stanford campus. The rooms are large and comfortable, and I thought the phone charging wires (for a whole variety of phones) provided at the work desk was a nice touch as well. The wifi was a little buggy at times but not crippling, and the air conditioning though loud was bearable. Breakfast admittedly was dismal, and the decor of the rooms weren't great either. The staff however, are excellent and very very helpful. Affordable price for a place in the area as well. This is not a luxurious place, but if you're looking for a convenient and comfortable place to stay - this is a great pick!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
In a region renowned for razor-sharp venture capital firms and a generous dose of Stanford-style intellectual innovation, the Menlo Park Inn carves a decidedly unique niche - a sleek, utterly stylish inn that makes all-star service its top priority. Sure, our guests love our easy, under-two-mile access to Palo Alto, but what really makes them smile? We think it's the sweet smell of fresh-baked cookies. It's an Xperience you'll never forget. ... more   less
