    Great place, great price, great amenities

    We stumbled upon this place while looking for a way to get away from the valley heat, and I’m glad we did. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The room was nice and roomy. The whole complex was clean and a relaxing place to stay. Thank you for a great weekend away

    Lovely, Peaceful Palo Alto Institution

    Used to stay here occasionally for work in the late1990s. Back then, it was considered a Palo Alto institution. When I returned in July 2021 on a family trip, I was delighted to discover the hotel was even better than I remembered. The rooms are immaculate and tastefully updated with ample space, comfortable beds and generous amenities (chocolates, water). The hotel grounds are lavishly beautiful with ducks and koi and birds. The sound of water running through the pond is like a lovely white noise machine. Highly recommend.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Great hotel, great vibe and atmosphere. We'll try to get a ground level room next time as to have access to waterside relaxation. Parking onsite seemed to be overbooked as it was difficult to find a spot, perhaps designating spots per room would be helpful. However, rooms seemed quiet enough and overall it was a good experience. We'll likely stay here again.

    Beautiful grounds

    The property is beautiful, the grounds are amazing and it’s a very relaxing place to be. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The only thing I would suggest for improvement would be a microwave in the room.
