“Worth a look”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

We have stayed at this hotel a couple of times in the last few years as our son lives in the area. It is a pleasant inn, and a good value in such a high-rent district. The front desk staff was friendly (and helpful finding a room even when we showed up a night early.)

Nice rooms, great new tv's, and very good working free wi-fi.

The breakfasts were disappointing, but free. The scrambled eggs were some kind of packaged powered type, and not much other protein available.

Parking is somewhat limited, but we found spots out front when returning later in the evenings.

Room Tip: We prefer 2nd floor away from cars in parking lot, but it requires a flight of stairs so if that is...

Thank you for your compliments on our front desk staff and rooms. Our free breakfast includes sausages and ham along with our eggs (not powdered type). We are renovating our rooms this year and look forward to your next stay with us.

Our room was clean with adequate space for 3 tall people. The bathroom was on the small side with a very loud and annoying fan that went on with the light rather than separately. The folks at the front desk were pleasant and helpful. The wireless internet connection, however, was awful, practically worthless. You had to be hardwired in order to get any connectivity. We didn't have time to sit down for breakfast and just grabbed an apple and a banana, both of which turned out to be mushy and inedible. You are about 7 miles from the Stanford campus so the location is good and after checking at other hotels, the price is quite reasonable for the location. I'd stay here again.

The room was small and the carpet very durty. But the rest of the room was clean and comfortable.
They gave us a bed for the baby, this was good.
The breakfast is great!!

Although there is nothing exceptional about this hotel, it is quite a nice place to stay. I used it as a home for a conference at the Microsoft research center. Rooms are clean, the property is small, and overall the service was pleasant. Don't plan on making a visit to this are without a car, though. Although there are a few restaurants nearby, everything you would want access to is quite a ways away.

The breakfast is average with scrambled eggs and waffles, but nothing else remarkable. The fitness room was kind of pitiful with an old treadmill and a stair master. They ask you not to use it too early in the morning as people can hear you in the rooms above.

All in all, worth a stay especially if you have business at nearby Stanford (just up the road), or the tech centers also nearby.

We have stayed here on several occasions. The pool and hot tub are always clean and the rooms are comfortable and quite spacious. The area seems to be quite expensive for motels so I suppose this motel offers reasonable value although the price has crept up over the years. There are two computers in the business room which is very handy.

The breakfast is fine but I do agree with another reviewer that there are not enough tables for the number of rooms. On several occasions we have had to take our breakfast out to eat by the pool as it was so crowded.

We did have a problem with air conditioning which didn't work on one of our stays but we were moved to another room the next day.

The staff at reception are helpful and friendly and let us stay an extra hour as our flight wasn't leaving until later in the day.

Room Tip: get a room away from the road

The personnel at this BW were very nice and helpful, I only have one complaint, my husband and I stayed in room 110. The floor in the room was very uneven leaving big gaps on the front door. We were concern about critters coming into the rood so my husband had to go out and buy scotch tape and place it around the door so that critters would stay out of the room. We could also feel a big crack underneath the carpet, the foundation was uneven. Other than that, the room was clean and served its purpose.

We stayed here for a few nights. The staff was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay and even helped us extend our stay when there were no other rooms available in the town due to a convention.
The room was a good size with fridge and microwave, A/C (a bit noisy but kept the room cool during a heat wave), very comfortable beds. Very clean room and grounds. Easy parking outside our unit. The sink is in the room with the tub/toilet separate. Very good breakfast with waffles, eggs, yogurt, toast, etc. regularly replaced. Fresh fruit was available all day in the lobby as well as tea and coffee. Lots of seating in the breakfast room. There is a Whole Foods Market and a Walmart within 3 blocks for everything one could need. We were very happy here and will definitely stay here again.
