Stay at Ying and Sherry's Place was excellent. Hosts were very kind and helpful, location was excellent and room was quiet and clean. Location is easily accessible with car (easy parking), driving to SFO airport, Stanford, Palo Alto Downtown and Coast was very easy from this location.

Sherry is a very hospitable host in spite of I saw her one time during my stay. It is very calm district with a park nearby.

Me and my boyfriend spent two weeks in the "cozy quarters" and had a lovely time. The room was cozy and clean and, although we shared the bathroom with other guests of the house, we never had overlapping schedules or had to wait to use it. Sherry was very quick in responding to messages and warm in welcoming us. The house was located in a very safe neighborhood. Also, there was plenty of parking (free) on the street. The room was mostly peaceful and quiet but noise could be an issue sometimes (walls were thin and neighbors lively). Overall, it was an excellent money/quality ratio. I would definitively recommend to stay here.

Really comfortable bed and nice hosts, but a little far from public transit and noise could sometimes be an issue. All in all a great place to stay!

Great place, great people. Very friendly and polite. Very flexible and had a good stay. Loved my morning walk to Midtown.

Awesome place to spend the nights when doing business in Cali. For the price you can't expect a 5 star hotel. Sherry and her family are awesome and very respectful. Clear communication from the beginning. Everything clean. Recommended if on a budget and looking a place just to sleep at night.
