Great location for access to the Stanford campus. It is a very compact facility but has all the needed amenities and a very pleasant helpful staff.

Run away screaming - minimal airconditioning + bath linen issues

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, proximity to stanford hospital
Cons: Noisy, air conditiioning
This Best Western is the closest motel to the Stanford Hospital, four long blocks away. That is also the only good thing about it. Room air conditioning is almost useless. It has value only at night, because of the road noise when evening temperatures drop under 70 degrees F. Road noise is high due to it being immediately on El Camino Real, which is one of the area's busiest streets. It provided us with only one bath washcloth on a Thursday night because it had run out. The staff gave us one large bath towel instead when we complained, and said they were out of anything smaller. Amenities are minimal but that goes with the low-priced room rental. The vending machine is broken. The air conditioning and washcloth issues show how little the owners invest in the place. It deserves to go out of business as soon as possible.

No Internet, No curtains

Bright mercury lights keep the building and grounds blazing all night. But, only flimsy, see-through curtains. Windows face 6-lane El Camino Real and hardly block the sound. Internet ethernet cable was dead; staff unable to repair. So, if you are deaf, don't mind a brilliantly illuminated room all night and don't need internet, this is the place for you.

Not the place to stay

This hotel was in a good location for our travel plans, however when we arrived we discovered that our room had some broken tiles on the floor in the bathroom, the floor in the bathroom and bedroom were filthy. The bottoms of our feet were dirty from the floor! Several outlets would not work. The airconditioner did not work and neither did the refrigerator or the microwave. All night long we awoke by the trains coming through blowing the horn! This hotel is way overpriced and should not have received a 3 star rating.
