  • 2.0.Poor

    A room at this place is worth no more than $30 a week! When I arrived I was shocked, I couldn't believe I paid for such place. At the entrance I have been asked additional $30 because we were 2 in the room, not just 1 person. Which is unheard of - RIP OFF - I paid because I had been driving and I was exhausted, I needed to rest. From the outside it looks like yellow shopping containers have been used to build this place. It is dirty. The rooms have been set up to look decent, but they smell like old basement. The door of the room had almost 2 inches gap all around!! I couldn't believe it! To take a warm shower I had to wait a few minutes because the water wouldn't warm up. 30 min later I checked out, and went to another hotel.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Highly recommended! Don’t let the modest exterior fool you, it’s an excellent place to stay. Standard Room is nostalgic, modern, stylish, comfortable and clean with meaningful and useful amenities (refrigerator, microwave, Keurig with nice coffee and tea selections, lounge chair to sit and watch over 150 channels on dish, soft towels, quality bed linens, bright lighting, vaulted ceilings, usb charger) provided. The Corner Bakery Café next door was open all day and very convenient to have coffee, snacks, and a full breakfast. I found the hotel to be very quiet with low traffic, and in a great location close to Stanford University. Uber to get around for my business meetings. Hip office and friendly front desk staff and service. Price in line with quality offered, and would definitely stay again!

    I paid $ 500 per night. The picture was nice. I thought because of the price, it was some sort of boutique hotel. Was I wrong. It was a roadside motel with no amenities. The room smelled strongly of mold. The shower had mold growing. The pillow smelled. I could have gone to a motel and paid around $ 100 even in Palo Alto. It was a complete rip off.

    This was the biggest ripoff I have ever experienced. For $333 this place was a glorified Bates Motel. The person in the office was rude and unhelpful and they give you a wifi password that doesn't work.

    Undated hotel, nice bedding and furinture.

    Berada hotel is a older moter lodge that has been undated. The room was very clean and had nice bedding and furniture. I'd stay in Palo Alto every couple months and I would stay here again.

  • 6.0.Good

    Just okay

    Was a okay place but I would not stay there again. Lots of outside noise, not the best lighting in the room. But it was clean and I had no issues.

    Really more of a family run motel. Good range of tv channels. Pretty close to downtown. Proprietor was very nice and hospitable. Bed very comfortable. Internet choppy on/off.

    Love it!

    This is a fabulous little place - friendly and helpful ownership, with actual attention to detail in mind... (for example, I can't even express what having real Kleenex means to me! ) Very comfortable, decently quiet and a nice aesthetic. It's my go to place for the Palo Alto area.
