Mr/Mrs

Very nice check-in experience. Clean room and fairly quiet considering the location on a very busy main street of Palo Alto. Would stay here again. Convenient location. Close to many restaurants, freeway and shopping center

Great! I would stay again

Okay, it's an older motel. But considering the price, it's very nice. Front desk guy was nice. My bed** was super comfortable. The bathroom was clean and the shower was hot. There's room for your own stuff on the sink counter. I really appreciate that. ** I have lifelong back issues made worse by long periods of sitting, which I was doing at the conference. It could have been bad, but the bed was just right for me. From reading reviews, I knew breakfast would be basic and I was attending a conference that offered its own breakfast anyway. Parmani has quite decent coffee at 6:30 am <3 I planned ahead and brought my own cream and put it in the fridge in my room. It was perfect. If you want a sit down place and something more elaborate, there is a Corner Bakery Cafe down the street that opens at 7 am. I didn't try it. My first floor room was next to the ice machine, which gave me pause when I checked in, and indeed it did a certain amount of whirring and banging, but most of the time it was quiet and it never once woke me up. I wore ear plugs. There is traffic noise from El Camino Real, but it's surprisingly not bad. Probably quieter downstairs than up? I was there for two nights mid week and there was not a ton of coming and going in the parking lot. I slept as well as at home. I expect, it was a quiet time to be there. Wifi, fridge, microwave, iron and ironing board. The windows open if you want fresh air. I was there alone and felt safe. Convenient to Stanford University Please tip the maid

Serviceable, and not as badly overpriced as most

Silicon valley has about the worse price to quality ratio in the world. Most "hotels" here barely meet the standards of a cheap, chain motel elsewhere. But are priced at a luxury level. Think Motel 6 at $300 per night. Hotel Parmani is not much nicer than the rest, if at all. It's definitely a motel. But it isn't as badly overpriced as most, and it's in walking distance of California Avenue, so that makes it a bargain. Recommended. Ignore the breakfast offering

Deceptive descriptions lead to disappointment

Hotel Parmani is not a boutique hotel. In fact, it is not a hotel at all. It is a modestly refurbished motel on a busy street. I'm not sure wha justifies the "boutique" description. Had the website given a more accurate depiction of the hotel, our stay would have been less disappointing. The room was spotlessly clean. It had relatively new carpeting, a retiled shower and new bedding. Everything else is quite old and dingy. The bathroom vanity had a rusted in-vanity metal tissue holder that actually fell out of the vanity in the middle of the night, the mirror is rusted and peeling and the paint is crumbling. The room had an open closet and an ironing board hung on the wall, The microwave is ancient.The air conditioning is an extremely noisy wall unit. The motel is slated for redevelopment according to a notice in the front office so it seems like the current owners are no longer investing in the upkeep. You will need a car. The Parmani is walkable to one restaurant -- a fish joint next door and a McDonald's a block away from that. Stanford and the downtown area is about two miles away. They do offer a little breakfast -- toast, cereal, juice and coffee -- in the office. There is no breakfast area so you need to take the food back to your room. That said, hotels in Palo Alto can be extremely expensive so this is an adequate budget option -- just understand what you will get for your $200. The staff is also wonderfully friendly and nice

Conveniently located

Not far from the medical center. Unassuming hotel. OK for a short stay. Person at the desk was very helpful and courteous. Breakfast was modest but OK. There is some covered parking which was great since it was a rainy day
