“A good Place to stay for a day”
Reviewed 12 October 2011

The personnel at this BW were very nice and helpful, I only have one complaint, my husband and I stayed in room 110. The floor in the room was very uneven leaving big gaps on the front door. We were concern about critters coming into the rood so my husband had to go out and buy scotch tape and place it around the door so that critters would stay out of the room. We could also feel a big crack underneath the carpet, the foundation was uneven. Other than that, the room was clean and served its purpose.

We stayed here for a few nights. The staff was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay and even helped us extend our stay when there were no other rooms available in the town due to a convention.
The room was a good size with fridge and microwave, A/C (a bit noisy but kept the room cool during a heat wave), very comfortable beds. Very clean room and grounds. Easy parking outside our unit. The sink is in the room with the tub/toilet separate. Very good breakfast with waffles, eggs, yogurt, toast, etc. regularly replaced. Fresh fruit was available all day in the lobby as well as tea and coffee. Lots of seating in the breakfast room. There is a Whole Foods Market and a Walmart within 3 blocks for everything one could need. We were very happy here and will definitely stay here again.

This is a pretty good Best Western... It's a motel, but the lobby is pretty nice. It's got an outdoor pool and outdoor hot tub, and a fitness center that's open until 9:30 pm. The rooms have (very) sizeable minifridges and microwaves, with tube televisions. Access to a guest laundry room from the parking lot. Wi-fi is free, you get the password at checkin.

The breakfast leaves something to be desired... The bagels were pretty dry, there were prepackaged danishes, standard industrial scrambled eggs, sausage, four kinds of cereal, some oatmeal. A good amount of fruit, which is a plus... but no peanut butter! How is that possible?

No complaints on the cleanliness of the room, or the friendliness of the staff; when we asked for a second-floor room after they first gave us a first-floor, they were happy to comply without a question. Beds were comfortable, sheets were clean. Toilet was one of the economically-friendly designs, that uses less water if possible.

But be forewarned: they don't have homemade cookies when you check in, like the Zen motel does, or the Best Western in Tonopah (Nevada). If that's important to you. And honestly, I don't know how it could not be.

Room Tip: The rooms get further from the stairs as the numbers increase-- helps to decrease the noise level!

We sincerely appreciate your comments on the cleanliness of the room and friendliness of our staff. We will be replacing our televisions with flat screen TVs this year. We change our breakfast items throughout the year in order to provide a better variety for our guests. Peanut butter is a great idea!

i stayed two year-wise for a conference at stanford. the price is reasonable, the location ok (thats true for the most of mountain view/palo alto/menlo park/stanford hotels). the hotel itself comes with mostly identical rooms, some are refurbished (new ac etc.) some not. the breakfast is ok for a fast breakfast but you can expect more for the price, the breakfast room is too small for the size of the hotel.

the years before the hotel offers special prices of about 80 dollar/nights for non-cancellable bookings months before, which makes sence in case of conferences at gives dates. unfortunately not this year, so the price was between 120 and 140 dollar/night.

i used the business center, but unfortunately the printer was not installed. the printer seems to be ok, but can not be used.

the number of parking slots is not enough for the number of rooms, so coming late possibly includes to check for parking places nearby.

the hotel offers wired and wireless internet, both are working well.

for the 2014 upcoming conference i'll try first time other hotels, may be i have better experiences.

Room was nice, with a convenient bathroom layout that put the sink and a large counter in the bedroom. Beds comfortable and our stay was mostly quiet, although when kids upstairs got frisky, we did hear it.
Staff was pleasant and helpful and free breakfast was better than average, from our experience. Nice touches: an automatic waffle maker at breakfast and a bowl of apples and oranges available all day in the lobby..

Room Tip: A first-floor room lets you avoid climbing one or two flights of stairs from regular parking or base...
