I stayed at this motel while visiting relatives. Menlo Park Inn is definitely not new, but it has been well kept. You basically get what you pay for. The staff is just wonderful and helpful. Parking is easy because not a lot of people stay here. The bed was very comfortable, the furnishings were nice, and the decor was delightful.
This hotel is awesome. It is right off the freeway, but is still quaint and charming. The bar had some delicious beverages and the hotel serves scrumptious food. However, my room was a little dingy and I think it could use a little renovation. It also smelt a little like smoke. The furnishings weren?t that impressive either.
Twisters Gym is the bomb. The staff here is exceptional and the facility is large. You can take gymnastics classes here, and most of them aren't very expensive. Twisters Gym is located at a corner of Mountain View so it is a little hard to find if you have never been there before.
You can find some really random stuff at the Oneders Dollar Store. I think it recently opened, but the carpet already has a nasty stain in several places. The store sells such things as sunglasses, cards, socks, cheap toys, utensils, beauty products, etc. The staff is alright. The store is easy to find but parking is a little difficult.
Dancer?s Loft has a big variety of dance stuff. It is relatively easy to find, but parking can be very difficult. The dance equipment here is superior, although expensive. The store is very small but the staff is helpful because the staff is usually made up of dancers or people who used to dance, so they know a thing or two about what type of Pointe shoe is best.
I think this ice skating rink is pretty impressive. It is a little difficult to find but parking is pretty easy. What I like most about this rink is that it is very big compared to other ice skating rinks nearby (such as Winter Lodge). The instructors here are very helpful and after I took class here for a couple of months, my skating got a lot better. The lessons weren?t very expensive either.
Miramonte Veterinary Hospital is relatively easy to find and there is usually lots of parking. I think the service here is pretty expensive (it costs like $60 to get a shot for my cat). The vet took great care of my cat and was very nice and courteous. The facility is not very big but the waiting area is pretty comfortable.
Palo Alto Hardware has a variety of hardware products. The store is relatively easy to find because it is on Alma. However, because of the store's proximity to downtown, parking can be quite difficult. The staff here is great and they are usually very courteous to the customers. This store is not the cheapest, you could probably find the same products at Home Depot or something for a little bit cheaper.
The Los Altos Library, which is located in the heart of Los Altos, is relatively easy to find. It is a large facility with many books. I can almost always find the book that I need here, or at least have the opportunity to put it on hold. The staff is very friendly and polite. Usually the library isn't very crowded and is quiet and peaceful.
This hotel is near everything, including BART and the cable cars. This hotel is in a safe and clean area. The room wasnt very big (I might consider getting a suite next time) and the bathroom was small but the decor was pretty nice. The staff were friendly and helpful. I will stay here again!
