The host was very friendly and was able to accommodate my stay last minute. It was very clean and quiet which is important to me when I am away on business. The location was literally 4 minutes away from Stanford, which is where my business to me too. It's one of the most convenient trips I've had. Thank you so much for your hospitality.
Archana's in-law unit is brand new and very comfortable for one person or even a couple. It's comfortable and private. Archana's communication was great. She was very responsive. I highly recommend her place if you're visiting the Palo Alto area. It's conveniently located for easy access to 101 and mid-town Palo Alto is 5-10 minutes away.
The mother-in-law unit was newly built with hardwood floor and a nice shower. However, I had a hard time sleeping on the bed as the mattress was so old, there's permanent indentations where the previous owners used to lie. There was also issues with the host' dog barking at night, which I was told it was because of the neighbor's new dog - but that information didn't help me sleep any better.
