It's an old-style cheap motel but they've added nice modern amenities -- the bed, pillows, bathroom. It's clean, microwave and frig in the room. The furniture is pretty cheap tho. Pretty nice hot breakfast in the little lobby. You wouldn't confuse it for an upscale place but it's much cheaper than the hotels in the area and was just fine.

I don't normally stay at a Comfort Inn but all hotels in the area were sold out. The staff at the Inn was pleasant but the accommodations were fair at best. The carpet in my room was worn and the room was not very clean. A continental breakfast was offered but I didn't partake because I had to depart very... More

This motel offers the usual features expected of a Comfort Inn. It is an older motel that has been remodeled to current standards. There are a number of similar older motels, most now remodeled, lining El Camino in this same area. Of these, the comfort Inn seems to be the top choice is that the rates are lower than most...

Very small closet space. Breakfast is minimal and exactly the same everyday. The phone line was not open even for local calls and this... More

We chose this Comfort Inn because of its location to Stanford Hospital, where I had several appointments. The room was very clean, quiet and comfortable. The bathroom had just been remodeled and it was nicely done. We were able to check in early, so I enjoyed a quick nap on the comfortable beds. With the breakfast, we considered it a... More

When my boyfriend was released from a nearby hospital, the staff here allowed him to check in very early so he could rest. I really appreciated that! The room was very clean, everything looked new, nice tile in the bathroom, comfortable bed, and free fridge and microwave. Yes, the WIFI was not the best, but it was free. Some reviewers... More
