Very overpriced for what it was. Room looked much bigger and better on website.

Enjoyed the hotel. Nice location. Rooms were comfortable. Only concern was the "thinness" of the walls. I could hear my neighbor conversations and the tv next door was unbearable. The hotel offers ear plugs and they are useful.

Nicely renovated motel style hotel

Posted May 7, 2017
I would absolutely recommend this hotel to travellers who want a clean affordable option in Palo Alto. When I arrived at the Nest I was greeted by very friendly staff in their cool indoor outdoor lounge. The hotel appears to be a renovated motel. My room was in the second floor up the stairs which I preferred. The room was very clean and modern, like an IKEA showroom. Shower was spacious, bed was comfortable. The only drawback was that due to the set up, if I had the windows open any one walking by the room along the balcony was able to look right in from six feet away. Consequently I kept the blinds closed which made the room seem dark. The hotel is not a far drive from downtown. There is an Amazing donut place Happy Donuts across the street that frankly would make staying there worthwhile! Lol. Would stay there again if I just needed a place to sleep for sure.

One Week Stay at The Nest in Palo Alto in April/17

Posted May 1, 2017
Pros: Clean and comfortable.
Cons: Provide comfortable chairs for relaxation and TV watching.
Location: It was near the people we were visiting and the Caltrain and fairly close to sites we toured such as Stanford University and the Google complex.
My wife and I were pleased with the accommodation. It was clean and comfortable. The room was expensive in $ Canadian per day, but probably in line with Palo Alto prices. The room had only one chair (for use at the desk); it lacked a couple of comfortable chairs for relaxation and TV watching.

Very updated hotel

Posted May 1, 2017
This was a very nice hotel, with amazing upgraded features. Outside there is a fire wall where you can sit and drink wine or beer. The rooms are very nice and modern clean lines.

Nice hotel close to shopping and restaurants.

Posted Apr 17, 2017
I would recommend this to all my friends and of the facility is very clean, upscale and modern. The room I had was on the small side and the closets were too. The shade provided security and darkness, but they need to add curtain to allow daylight in to the room. Also I recommend that they use fabric softener on their towels. I will be staying here again but I will get a bigger room.

Very modern, but minimalist and sparse.

Posted Apr 10, 2017 on Hotels
The room was very small and had no place to place the suitcases except on the floor. There was no tub, only a shower. The towels were minimum and had no rack, but hung only on shower door. There was no breakfast with the room exept one that we had to pay $10 for and it was a joke.

Great modern updates!

Great recently renovated motel style hotel. I liked the modern touch and the indoor outdoor feel of the reception area that doubled as the bar and breakfast area. It is modern but very comfortable to sit and relax. I will definitely stay there again on my next business trip to the area.
