A Nice Place.

The hotel is very nice, and reasonably priced. I really appreciate the cookie and trail mix in the room. We did stay one night at the Lucent just nearby and it was excellent. It's refurbished. I just thought I would let you know about that.

Pros: location
Cons: The room smelled musty. Maybe air it out?
The staff was great, location was great for what I needed, I had a 1st floor room that smelled musty, but other than that it was fine. I'd probably stay there again.

Great location in town, near Stanford.

Pros: Location in town was nice and I liked the staff.
Cons: Only complaint was that the refrigerator was noisy.
Location: Near restaurants, grocery store and Stanford shopping center. Close to Stanford University and not far from San Jose.
We only stayed one night, but the room was very clean and comfortable. Staff was very nice and seemed to be happy with their jobs. It was a good experience and I would stay there again.

Great for the value

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet
They had a breakfast but was just your typical breakfast: muffins, bagels, fruit, cereal. They had cookies later on in the evening Otis cookies. Staff was very friendly close to the Stanford hospital and airport SFO. The one bad thing was it is next to train tracks so when your sleeping it does wake you but if you were like me I was tired and got over it. Would stay again. Also they have free wifi which is good has excellent reception.

This hotel was very convenient.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
The motel was close to eating establishments and cafes. There was plenty of parking. The one con was that the spa tub did not work.

Comfortable modest hotel

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Quiet
Cons: not an exciting area to visit
Our contractor really liked the hotel. It was clean, comfortable and modest, so he felt at home. The staff was nice. He loved the continental. He said it was quite for being on the main drag. Menlo Park Inn is reasonably priced for the area. Other people must know about this modest little gem, the Inn books out when there are big Stanford events.

Good budget option on the Peninsula

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants
This is a solid option for travelers seeking budget lodging. The hotel is slightly dated but clean and located within walking distance to a number of restaurants, shops, etc. Would I take my wife here for a romantic weekend? No. Would I stay here again for a business meeting in the Palo Alto, Menlo Park area? Sure.

Wonderful experience

These people couldn't have been nicer. The decor was beautiful and the rooms were very clean. Breakfast area was also very clean with good selection. I will stay here again when I am in the area. Only negitive I could come up with was the noise level as it is close to a busy street but next time will ask for a room further back - all is all, an excellent experience
