                                        The gardens are spectacular and a lovely feature. Room 636 was very spacious and offered all the amenities one could wish for- including an exercise bike and dumbbells. I chose this hotel based on location and price- was not prepare to pay $400 upwards per night....would not have enjoyed better facilities for the price difference.

                                        The look and fit-out is very dated....but that in itself was charming because it gave the hotel a distinguishing characteristic- almost folksy. Everything was immaculate, clean, worked and it felt like I was playing out a scene from the Madmen series- late 60's early seventies I'd guess?

                                        The hotel provided a pleasant, relaxed, resort type environment within Palo Alto, unlike the usual formula style of a chain hotel. They also didn't charge for every little thing you asked for.

                                        The restaurant at the pool would close too early. It would be nice to be able to get a drink by the pool in the later afternoon.

                                        This is my first visit at this hotel. My only complaint was that when I was ready for bed, I pulled the sheets back and found blood stains in the middle of the bed. I immediately notified the front desk and to their credit, they put me in an upgraded room. The upgraded room was great and I was comfortable.

                                        It is a private quiet location with many facilities nearby.

                                        I think for the price and location it is a very good value.

                                        It's a peace heaven. Perfect for Stanford (if you have a car) and outlets. We stopped there on our way to San Francisco and it was worth it to have a break there. But you have to get a good deal, because we payed half the normal price.

                                        There is no breakfast except a coffee and a danish.

                                        The shower was updated and very clean...the staff went above and beyond,extremely friendly and helpful!

                                        The room TV and stereo system needs updating...as well as furniture. A little bit of money invested in updating the room would make this hotel very competitive with modern large chain hotels. I would choose this hotel again.

                                        I loved the atmosphere of the hotel. It felt like I was out in nature at a meditation retreat. The hotel was on a busy main road, but was so self contained that you could not tell. It was conveniently located. It has a wonderful heated pool, a pool side restaurant, and beautiful gardens and waterfalls. The room was very nicely decorated and clean. It included a refrigerator and bar sink. The atmosphere was very peaceful and beautiful. I would recommend it.

                                        We enjoyed the wet bar and the Japanese Maple plants. The bedding was also our favorite with the long feathered pillows. Green Tea soap and lotion products smelt pleasantly fresh! We were able to relaxe due to our quiet and serene surroundings. All around we enjoyed our stay and would visit again, sorry about the TV :/

                                        The hallways and elevators were very outdated compared to the rooms.
