“Best Western near Stanford Hospital”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

Clean hotel room, had a microwave and refrigerator, near Stanford Hospital. They will give a hospital discount if you or family member is hospitalized at Stanford. A little traffic noise because it is on the El Camino, so be prepared. Has a garage underground to park your vehicle, could be difficult to park a large SUV if the lot starts to fill up.I would stay here again.

Not really what was expecting considering 400 USD per night cost.
For that cost, might as well stay at Westin Palo Alto, just down the road.
The rooms are good and clean, but very noisy from the railway line just nearby and from the people walking on the rooms above.
The breakfast area is tinny at reception. The staff is very helpful and ready to help at all time. In fact the staff are the only Plus of the hotel...

Room Tip: way from the railway line and on the higher floor

This hotel bordering Menlo Park/Palo Alto cities is nicely located next to the Stanford Court Shopping Mall (very upscale shopping) good restaurants and the Stanford University Hospital and Clinics. It is a well kept hotel with a fitness area - three machines and a weight machine. Has a nice breakfast in the mornings. Staff is helpful with reservations and directions. Some outdoor seating is located outside each room. The only drawback is that the hotel is located on the El Camino Real which is a very heavily traveled thoroughfare that can have quite a bit of traffic resulting in a bit of audible noise in the hotel rooms. Especially difficult to get any sleep much after 6 a.m. Otherwise a nice place to stay.

I had planned to stay at this hotel for 2 weeks, but left after 2 days. Clearly, Best Western is willing to label any dump "Plus" Like many of the hotels in the area, it is right on El Camino Real. It was VERY noisey -- there are many hotels on this street that are significantly quieter. The room was just dirty. The bathroom floor had not be cleaned in decades -- you could see the dirty spots where someone would normally stand. Check out my very positive review of Hotel Aria in Mountain View.

Reviewed 5 April 2014

I'm sure this is a supply & demand issue, but at $269 per night, I expected something more than a barely updated hotel from the 70's. Windows do not seem to be updated enough to keep out the train noise. The elevator from the under building parking (only a few spots for a big sub) was a bit scary, big enough for 1 person and their luggage. Breakfast area was very small space, obvious why not many people choice to sit & eat. If I'm in this area again, I would spend another $75-100 & stay at a 4 star hotel.

This motel is pleasant looking and has a great location near the campus but is very noisy and expensive. The staff are concerned and helpful, the breakfast mainly pre-packaged and with few healthy choices.

Pro: My favorite place to stay (having stayed at 4 other hotel/motels in the area)--many hotels in the area will charge extra for wifi and/or parking, so be careful to read the fine print.
Con: the heating unit is tucked away under the sink in the bathroom and did not efficiently heat the rest of the room.
