    interesting original murals

    It was clean and comfortable. The original murals outside were very interesting and little accents painted on the inside were sweet. The last motel in Palo Alto had chipped paint all around so this was definitely an improvement. Only problem was a backed up toilet; but luckily we only planned to stay one night so we just let them deal with it after we left.

    Everything was really good and spacious lived the staff and service. The only problem was the a/c in the room was a little weak.
