Nice place close to Stanford. Price was right and did not disappoint/

Great place to stay, if you're ok with...
Excellent place to stay and very convenient. The only drawbacks were the constant noises from the busy street and train (out room was on the front of the property) and the lack of elevator. If you're ok, with those, place is a 5 stars

Loved it!!! What a pleasant surprise
For a motel type place we really liked it — cool vibe, super nice staff, great breakfast, Pelegrino! They don’t charge you for water. Would definitely stay there again
Joseph, us1 night trip with friends
Hotel Lucent
Excellent all around!! I’ll admit that when i saw the hotel from the outside I was a little concerned because it seemed like a motel but it is so not! The rooms are huge and very comfortable! They have a beautiful heated pool, a great entertainment area, free (good) coffee/tea and breakfast was delicious and with great variety (and this coming from someone who is not easily pleased when it comes to breakfasts at hotels). Customer service was incredibly accommodating and went the extra mile when one of us got sick and were super helpful especially the Manager! And did I mention parking is free and it’s less than a mile from downtown?!! So happy to have stayed here! Congrats on a great gem!

A bit overpriced for a refurbished low end motel
Rooms have exterior corridors, as a female staying alone not sure if I would have booked knowing that, I prefer interior rooms. Upon entering room at 11pm noticed door was ajar and not locked. No elevator so navigating upstairs a steep flight of stairs with a heavy suitcase was very inconvenient. Common areas are very nice. Breakfast buffet was really great. Room was clean, bed was comfortable. Very centrally located.
