I grew up in Palo Alto and remember this place as a funky motel. As some point they turn the property into a little oasis. Many of the rooms open on to patios with water gardens, like a mini vacation.
If you were in town on business, you would have a place to relax at the end of your day. Our room was part of a different building - no little patio. However, it was set up for an extended stay with a mini kitchen including cookware, plates and basic kitchen staples. It was roomy if you were staying for a long business trip.
I also always had fond memories of the "poolside" diner. It's still there, and still fun to eat by the pool.
They have done a great job in creating a little retreat. The staff was very friendly and attentive.
