What $300 a night gets you in Palo Alto

Pros: Location Only
Cons: Perhaps when the renovations are done it will be better.
I am real tired of booking hotels that under construction. I should be notified and make that choice before booking. We were painted into our room. They painted the outside walkway while we were in our room and did not let us know and when we went to leave for dinner the walkway was still wet with paint. Noise from renovation projects was not appreciated. This is the second hotel I have booked with Travelocity that was renovating while we were staying there and I was not told. Very disappointed.

Pros: The price and location.
Cons: Nothing.
Location: Stanford University is close by as is the Stanford Shopping Center. I was there for an event at Stanford University.
I would definitely stay here again. However, I would NOT recommend a bottom floor room. Way too much noise early early morning from the room above. I did not call the front desk but, upon checking out, I was advised that I should not have hesitated to complain. The price was great compared to pricing in and around Palo Alto.

Pros: That it was clean and no hairs were found everywhere.
Cons: They spray the room with a fragrance and for those of us with allergies that is the worst, easy on those sprays. I had to sleep with the windows open.
Location: Great location if you need to go to the university or mall. Lots of places to eat near by.
After a horrible experience at Oak Motel in Palo Alto (place was so dirty and horrible no way a 2 stars needs to be downgraded to 0) I was sent here, which is by no means a fantastic place, but good enough and more importantly CLEAN. It is, like all motels on El Camino Real, noisy and mostly old, but this one is clean. Thank you to customer service for the help, they were great!

Very basic conditions

An old style motel, with most of the original furnishings.  Good value if you don't mind the 1-star atmosphere.

Nice rooms, close to all you need, strange nieghborhood....

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants
Cons: Noisy, breakfast okay.
Rooms were fine as most this chain is. Pool was nice. Kids enjoyed it okay. This hotel is close to all you may ever need. Breakfast was okay. The staff when first contacted were not so nice and when we stayed there, they were....okay....but clueless of the surrounding area. The vibe of the surrounding area made you a little cautious. I do not plan to go back to this hotel with my Family.

probably not

this hotel is better than a one i stayed in SF, but not as good as Quality Inn which is just a stone's throw away. weakness wireless network.. things rather spoilt, like the hair dryer and bar handles in the bathroom. they got a safe box though. breakfast was really disappointing... the guys were complaining. but oh well they got bread and cereals for me, so im still okay.. their staff are always missing from their desks! -.- i don think thats acceptable. ithey shd be present 24 hrs right?

traveloge palo alto

The key card for our room did not work the man up front had to keep opening for us. The bathroom shower had mold in it. The wireless connection for our laptop did not work. All in all we won't be going back to that hotel again. Its to bad because we will be spending alot of time in Stanford in the next year.

this place was so amazing..

the staff was super friendly and always willing to lend a helping hand. the front desk agents were well informed with everything the city had to offer and helpful when ordering a taxi... the pool had some leaves in it but it was winter anyway who wants to swim then right? the room was great clean and the hotel maids were also super helpful and very sweet. and only a walk away from stanford.

A good place to have your car towed

I have been recommending this place for 15 years, but never again. I was hosting an international meeting at Stanford University, and one of my colleagues stayed here. They towed his car 3 cities away and the tow company charged him $300!!! Stay away from this place, they are greedy and nasty. They are more concerned with managing their inadequate parking lot than with their guests.
