Comfort Inn Palo Alto
Ranked #20 of 27 Hotels in Palo Alto
Reviewed 22 January 2013

Conveniently located just off the Stanford University on El Camino Real in Palo Alto. Close to major shopping outlets if you need to get something during your visit to Stanford and Palo Alto. Hotel is clean and in great conditions, compared to other older ones along El Camino Real. Affordable rates and friendly staff.

Stayed for one night in Jan. 2013. I took the other reviewers' advice and requested a room toward the back, on the second floor. I didn't have a problem with street noise, but there isn't very much insulation so I can see where others may have had a problem. The construction and decor is a little dated at this point, but there was nothing broken or down right dirty. I will say that the bathroom had a funny odor to it, like there might be mold festering somewhere (but also kind of sewage-ish smelling?). I forgot about it after my nose adjusted, however I woke up the next morning with a splitting headache (which I tend to get from mold allergies), so perhaps a little investigation is in order for that area? On to the pros: the front desk staff were very helpful and accommodating. The breakfast was good- nice variety, plenty of hot and cold (and healthy!) items to choose from. There are also some inexpensive restaurants within walking distance, which is handy when you don't feel like driving for dinner. I think the price is high for what this motel actually is, but that being said, maybe everything is just a little more pricey in palo alto? I don't think I'd stay for more than one night.

We spent 5 nights here over two stays in Oct/Nov 2012 and will stay again when visiting family in the area. Top floor, back rooms are comfortable; clean and quiet. Microwave and refrigerator/coffee maker provided. We reported our coffee-maker was not working and had a new one by the end of the day. Free wifi worked well.

Breakfast offers multiple choices and a quiet breakfast room. Plenty of free parking. Easy access to Stanford and downtown Palo Alto (about 3 miles/<10 minutes).

If you travel with a pet, there appear to be nice dedicated pet rooms and pet exercise area on the back side of the hotel.

Room Tip: Room at back, top floor, was very quiet and comfortable (300's). Room in center (200's) was...

Stayed here because the price was right for a week long stay over Thanksgiving visiting relatives in Palo Alto.. The phone rang in the middle of the night a couple of times-I ended up disconnecting it but cell phones did not work in the rooms-had to go out to the middle of the parking lot! Wifi was fine. Toilet backed up and I had to call the front desk twice to get someone to come to fix it. A maid came and handed me the plunger!!

If you visiting the stamford or any particular event near Palo Alto, this is the place you want to stay at. If affordable, comfortable and reasonable. The staff is extremely polite and helpful. I love the morning breakfast with more than 10 options. Ample car parking, clean room, handicap rooms available as well. If you need anything at this place, just ask for it and it will be done.

Room Tip: Get the rooms at first floor on the back of the motel where there more quiet.

We were greeted by dirty sheets, if you know what I mean. The tv didn't work for the longest time. Oh yea and the sheets had man stains on them from previous tenants. Don't stay here. I don't know why we stated here apparently it had a good review. But this place is a real hole. I haven't gone outside yet to see if my car is still there. Hopefully it is.
Please do yourself a favor and stay somewhere else that you don't have to sleep in your sleeping bag on a bed with dirty sheets.

The area is a little sketchy but everything else was okay. We had a room with two king size beds o it was nice and big. The bathroom, like everyone else said, has the sink outside which was kind of weird but it didn't bother me too much. Good water pressure in the shower.
