Reviewed 12 October 2011

I like to stay in "dives," but the room I had at this place was disgusting. It was the only hotel room I could find on the entire peninsula because the Stanford freshmen had arrived with their parents. The door wouldn't latch, let alone lock. I had to push the desk up against the door. All the furniture was 40 years old and broken. The TV was broken. The shower stall was moldy. The carpet was peeling away from the wall corners; it was dirty. The room smelled bad. The bed looked clean but, given the state of the rest of the unit, I was scared to death of bedbugs and only managed a few hours of sleep. If I hadn't already driven up and down the peninsula, called scores of hotels and had them call other hotels large and small, I would have left to find another room. Maybe they have other rooms which are in good repair and kept clean, but this was the only room they had and it was horrible. If I could give it a less-than-zero rating, I would.

Stayed: September 2011, travelled with family

We stayed at the Palo Alto Lodge for an event in April 2011. Initially when we pulled up we were concerned about the accomodations based on the look and layout of the building. I have to say don't judge a book by its cover has never been so true. The rooms where perfect and clean with large king size beds that had clean sheets and comforters. Nice big flat screen tv with remote. Plenty of storage for your things. And very quiet despite being right off the highway. The room had hair dryer, coffee maker, small refrigerator and ironing board.

If you are looking for a reliable place to return to when traveling regularly for business to Palo Alto then you may like the Palo Alto Lodge. For me it is less like staying in a hotel and more like staying in a room in someone's home. I can often request and get the same room. It has the original motor lodge feel, the price is good for Palo Alto, and the rooms are always very clean.

Last fall while in Palo Alto for Homecoming and stayed in the Crystal Room shown on on the website. Although it is the same size as the rest of the rooms, the bathroom has been totally renovated, and has a very unique tile work and shower. Furniture and flat screen are all new. I am looking forward to staying there again! A great experience.

The staff are friendly and the rooms have always been clean. The lodge is right next to El Camino Real (a busy street), but I have never had problems with noise/sleeping. The rooms aren't fancy, but they are comfortable. I've never had trouble with the wireless signal, which is an improvement over most of the other places I've tried in Palo Alto. Definitely the best value in the area.

I have happened upon a unique hotel in my recent travels to the Bay Area. I was traveling for business and a friend recommended this hotel to me. This hotel is not a chain, it's more like a boutique. The rooms are very nicely appointed, the design detail is on par with "W" Hotel Properties. I had the pleasure of staying in the Crystal Room- the bath rooms are beautifully designed with high end tile, lighting, etc. If you are looking to stay somewhere nice that has thoughtfully designed rooms with people who care to make your stay enjoyable- this is the place.

Palo Alto Lodge was a great escape and call home while in Palo Alto. It is decorated with a very edgy, modern look and was immaculately clean.
