Clean, good breakfast, very helpful staff
Nice room at an excellent rate Paid more for other places in the vicinity that were not nearly as nice as the Zen
clean and large rooms, converted from motel.
slightly noisy rooms facing El Camino
During my stay at the Zen I enjoyed the large flat screen TV, the firm comfortable bed and the convienant front door parking.
I accidentally kicked the wood corner of the bed frame and left with a large black and blue bruise above my ankle. Following day, my boyfriend kicked it too! That characteristic of the bed might lead to others getting hurt too.
Excellent coffee at breakfast & great value for money!
The staff are very nice and helpful. The rooms are nicely furbished and very clean.
Room was very nice, well designed and attractive. Loved the coffee beans and grinder for coffee in the morning (in room).
Only negative is that the exterior wasn't quite what one would expect with the name Zen Hotel. It isn't bad but the building is old and doesn't have the Asian feel that we expected.
Traveling can be stressful and when tourists come to the Palo Alto area, they are just looking for a little Zen for themselves. This is why the Zen Hotel is a great place for travelers. The name says it all! This hotel is peaceful and eco-friendly. In the Palo Alto area, it has become one of the most popular stays for travelers. It has 37 rooms, a free hot breakfast, fitness center, complementary welcome snacks, business center, free parking, laundry, and is located near Stanford University.

It is easy to find something to do here, but it is also very easy to just relax while guests are here. Guests who want to venture out can check out Broines Park, Monroe Mini-Park, Immersion Spa, CineArts at Palo Alto Square, and Sarah Wallis Park.
Guests of the Zen Hotel will find their inner peace after spending just a few days here. Booking is simple, but because this is such a small hotel, rooms may sell out so it is imperative to book early.
