Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort
Spacious rooms. Friendly staff. Furnishings are a little worn and could use some refurbishing. A good place if you have to spend a day working in the room (or in the garden).

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
I truly believe the owner/manager of this hotel has a scam going. The posted pictures are VERY old, as the property is extremely run down. They have an unheard of 72 hour cancellation policy, which I learned when I tried to get my money back after ten minutes in the room. No one was at the hotel besides me and my daughters. The room was old, dingy, out dated, smelly and had disgusting old green carpet which is probably original to the property. DON'T STAY HERE!! I have reported them to the better business bureau and the town of Palo Alto. The only person who seems to work there is a 16 year old kid who sits behind the front desk. When I asked to speak to the manager/owner, I was told she was out of town. I asked him to please call her and he refused. I couldn't get any contact info for her besides a generic email address with no reply for over a week. I'm out $1,000. Again, I believe this "hotel" is a total scam.
