It’s so hard to find affordable places to stay near Stanford hospital, especially ones that don’t make you cringe 😁 We were very happy with our brief stay here and would definitely stay again. Love that there was no carpet. The room was clean, the TV remote control was sanitized and bagged. Staff was very friendly as well
