Ranked #6 of 11 Hotels in Menlo Park
Reviewed 12 July 2014

Very quiet location although close to Stanford. Staff personal and responsive. Breakfast that even my picky children liked. Good Wifi. Clean pool What more can I say? I made the right choice for a family of 4.

Nice pool, breakfast. Reasonable price for the area. Had breakfast sitting by the pool. Also had nice sitting area. Lovely toiletries also. Attendants were helpful with a fee problems that arose. I would recommend it.

A relaxing stay!!! This hotel felt like a little cottage with a lovely patio. The rooms were large and the staff was great. The hotel is set off of the road and is very quiet. We brought breakfast back to the room and it felt like home.

This hotel is set back from the busy road, so you don't hear the traffic. The room was so comfortable and clean! The bathroom was so modern and great amenities, which was surprising considering the unassuming appearance of this exterior of this hotel. The breakfast was very good with a wide selection of food. We had our 20 month old son with us. A few blocks away was a park with a great playground. I would highly recommend this hotel.

I only stayed the overnight. The place was good.

I liked: 1) free breakfast; 2) balcony + view to the patio/pool

It could improve: The bathrooms, very average and small.

I would recommend for a short business stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a patio room

Thank you for your feedback. We are glad to know that you enjoyed our breakfast offerings and the view from your patio. Great minds think alike! We have employed a well-known interior designer and now in the permit stages for a complete renovation of our property. We also were not happy with our bathrooms but could not stop there... Can't wait to see the end results in just a few short months.

Great location, set back on El Camino Real so relatively quiet. Nice, clean rooms in peaceful setting. Nice breakfast offerings. Ambiance more like an apartment setting than a cookie cutter chain hotel room. Will be returning again next week.

My second stay was just as nice as the first one last fall. I had a queen room by the pool which was very pleasant. Comfortable bed, flat screen TV, Keurig coffee-maker plus microwave and frig, good easy Internet, nice staff and free breakfast included. You could easily spend a lot more in this part of the world and get a whole lot less. My only worry is that more people will find out about this wonderful place and I won't be able to get a reservation!
