Perfect Experience
Loved everything about this place.

Impressive turnaround
Pretty impressive remodel of an old tired motel into a hipster hotel. Looked good. Beds were a dream. Fire pit was a nice touch. Breakfast option was an unexpected delight.

Good even when you get sick
We booked Lucent months ago when we were planning to come to the 50th Reunion at Stanford. Unfortunately, I got a severe stomach illness that kept me in bed for an entire day of the reunion. The Lucent was a big help in my recovery, having a warm Spa to lounge around once I was able, yoghurt to eat, and a staff that checked in on me and kept the place clean. The place was well-situated to Stanford, breakfasts were fresh and well prepared, the Spa was clean, and the staff was very helpful in meeting our every need. It was convenient to be next door to a 24-hour Safeway, with a good wine selection and a pharmacy.
