The Palo Alto Inn - Palo Alto
I don't have a dog!
The Palo Alto Inn is actually an older Motel which is renovated on the interior but not on the exterior the interior of the room was quite lovely with a very nice bathroom some of the things I did not enjoy the room was ice cold and the heater was inadequate the mattress to me was not so comfortable I felt like sleeping on a slab in the pillows were hard as rocks as well if you stay here be sure to place the do not disturb sign outside your door or you will be woken up at 8:30 in the morning by Rosita the maid which is what happened to us three times in one morning well we had to get up and head out for an appointment so we did so when we're out the door by 9:30 I checked out at the front desk and was informed by The Innkeeper that we would be charged for the dog that we took into our room I explained that we don't have a dog and The Innkeeper persisted on arguing with me that I did have a dog that housekeeping saw me take a dog into my room I explained to the lady again I don't have a dog I told her that my wife was pulling up right now and she was free to look in our car for a dog and as well as the hotel room The Innkeeper said okay well I'll be going in there to look and if I see there was a dog in there I'm going to charge you for it. Really rude.

Totally fine hotel for its type. The breakfast options are pre-packaged and pretty limited, though there was fresh fruit. The wi-fi will support VPN, which I appreciate.
