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...

This Comfort Inn is in a good location in Palo Alto, near Stanford University and the Stanford Mall. The rooms are clean, but the furniture is a little worn. The free breakfast is disappointing, but then there are two Starbucks in walking distance as an alternative. The Wifi works but has its problems, such as having to log in multiple...

I chose the Comfort Inn because of the price and location, but regretted it. The room was adequate except for being covered with ants. Each night when I returned, my key would not work. The first time it happened it took 3 trips to the office. The young man on duty that first night was at least pleasant, not true...

The staff and accommodations at this Comfort Inn were very good. The breakfast was quite adequate along with a complimentary news paper. The only problem was that the walls did not keep out adjoining room noise. If you have quiet neighbors it is no problem but if they get noisy, you hear it all.

I was looking for an inexpensive but decent hotel in the Palo Alto - Mt. View area for a business trip, and this worked out OK. The location is great. As for many inexpensive lodgings, the facilities are somewhat worn. Some items like the bedding have been updated, and are quite nice. However, the furniture has seen a lot of...

My wife and I travel a lot throughout the US, Europe and Asia. We stay in everything from budget motels to five star hotels. In the last year we've experimented with staying at budget motels, especially on long road trips in the US. In general we have been getting really good results, feeling more connected to the locals and generally...

I was recently in Palo Alto for a big birthday celebration and needed a nice, clean, inexpensive place to sleep. After looking online, this seemed to be the best bet. It didn't disappoint. My room was clean, comfortable, and had everything I needed (e.g., coffee pot, ironing board, free wireless internet, refrigerator). Parking (at no charge) was convenient, breakfast (also...

We chose this hotel due to the reviews thinking it wasn't too bad. However, it was outdated and there was a horrible smell in the room . We had planned to stay 7 days but upon waking the next morning my husband and I both had a severe headache from the smell that must have been some chemical they used...

We arrived before 10am without reservations and the front desk staff was extremely accommodating and friendly. While we were having their complimentary breakfast the staff informed us that they expedited the cleaning of a King room and that it would be ready for us. The room was very clean and spacious. The bathroom was very clean. Everything was in working...
