Nostalgic Hotel from a different time

by Joe P

The garden description is accurate with private garden patio view on the first floor and pool views on the 2nd floor. Quiet and calming. The hotel is from an older vintage but has been updated and appears to be maintained very well. The on-site restaurant prepared a good meal and had a nice feel. I could see this being the spot to be in the early 80's and it's still a good location. Would consider staying again.

HIdden Gem in Palo Alto

by Linda B

Enjoyed my stay in a very clean, spacious room with all the amenities. Enjoyed some great wine and dessert from the Poolside restaurant with all it's charm of outdoor and indoor seating. A hidden gem in Palo Alto that everyone should be aware of.
