    Clean, great bed. Overall clan, minimal, and modern. The manager is extremely personable, and staff overall very genuine and helpful. Tiny rooms with no place to work or relax. If you're there just for sleep and shower, it's a winner!

    It was fine. They are adamant on no early check ins, even when rooms are ready. There are no bathrooms in the hotel except in the rooms too. Hidden away from the hustle & bustle. Fine for a quick stop, but not the best.More

    Hotel was not so far from the University of Stanford and located in an area where a lot of bars and restaurants are located at walking distance. Although a lot of outside activity during the night it was reasonably quite during the night.More
