"The motel was upscale, and the room was clean and had newer furnishings, bedding, and towels. The carpet was fresh and clean. The bathroom was clean, attractive, and spacious. I liked the Zen gardens, bamboo, fountains, and the balconies and nice sitting areas. Friendly, helpful front desk clerk. The Kosher snacks were a plus. I rate this place a 10.2018-02-24"
"Great motel for the price. The room was clean and had great amenities like free snacks and water. The staff was amazing, and the complimentary breakfast was the best I've had at a motel. This is a great choice.2017-07-25"
"Great location. I didn't like the lack of privacy in the bathroom since there was a curtain instead of a door. I could hear conversations from neighboring rooms and dance music from a late-night club. The free afternoon wine was nice, and the complimentary breakfast exceeded my expectations. Bring ear plugs to this hotel.2017-08-12"

One of the biggest attractions in the city is the Stanford Shopping Center Mall near downtown Palo Alto.
Palo Alto hotels are along CA 82, El Camino Real, and clustered downtown, near Stanford University, and Stanford Research Park. The Four Seasons Hotel is near US 101, Exit 403 and the Palo Alto Airport.
I have never found a hotel booking site so easy to use. I had my room booked in less than a minute. The hotel where I had planned to stay had an issue. I was panicking. I clicked on HotelGuides' website, got a room, and checked in 15 minutes later.

Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
