Great value here, folks! All the amenities of more expensive hotels. Very quiet, very clean (even the mirrors were spotless!). Dedicated, courteous staff. You can tell when a staff is dedicated because all the little things are taken care of properly. Highly recommend this hotel if you are on a budget and want a nice place to stay.

Very comfy room ! Loved the Asian flair to the courtyard. Very friendly staff. Super clean rooms. Tons of channels on the TV.

It is a nice room at a good price. And well located too.

Very pleasant stay. Room was clean and everything functioned well. Pleasant, honest, and hard working staff. A restful, quiet, and safe environment during Covid-19 times! Would highly recommend when visiting the area.

Very good quality, but still was like being in a motel. Loved the little bath salts.

Loved it stayed in seven different motels this week while my mom was at Stanford medical center this was the best by far for the money

Loved the free parking on site! The room was perfect and bed super comfy. Very quiet and peaceful stay.

Relaxed setting. Fresh cookies and a very nice welcome snack package. Plenty of charging ports.
