Great breakfast buffet with a lot of healthy options - fresh made juices, smoothies, yogurt parfaits, and rotation of the hot breakfast standards. Nice to have hot cookies in the late afternoon. The newly updated gym was great. Very convenient location for Stanford visits. This was our third stay at Zen and it gets better each time.”

Great hotel at a great price with a friendly staff and nice touches (bath robes, slippers, and free snacks). If you're looking for an affordable place to stay in Palo Alto, look no further than the Zen. You'll truly enjoy your stay.
Highly recommended, great value.
I was initially worried driving up because of the motel style layout but the worry quickly went away. Great service, nice rooms, super clean, great (free) breakfast for the hotel class with awesome fresh smoothies and good location close to the heart of Silicon Valley etc.
