So did the man rent the motel room? If so, what kind of identification did he use? Or is the Glass Slipper one of those places that rents rooms by the hour--no questions asked?

Based on the yelp reviews, yeah. Very seedy.

This is one questionable story - all the actors are questionable.
Check with the police - I am curious as to the repuation of this facility - I have wondered for years as it doesn't appear very reputable and a contributor to this city.

The Glass Slipper Inn was a nice place in the fifties, but by the late sixties it was being used as a "place de rendezvous" by the then-pioneers of Silicon Valley. It has gone downhill ever since, so this report surprises no one!

neighbor,

Reputable contributor to our city? You mean it's not up to your standards? Maybe you should move to Atherton where crimes aren't publicized and let us have a city that at least approaches normalness.

Where is a good place to learn self-defense in the Palo Alto area? We need to be ready to protect ourselves.

They are not for profit.

I took their multi-class course and it changed my life. You may have to travel a bit, but it is well worth it. I believe they have scholarships available if you cannot cover the cost.

As a little kid, whenever we drove past that place I always wanted to go into their castle towers. I guess if I had, I would have learned a few things too early, and not just that they were fake.
