Don't let the standard appearance of the exterior fool you. The rooms were unique and welcoming with modern decor. We stayed in the corner room (lounge I believe) and were very pleased. John checked us in and was friendly and offered restaurant suggestions. The bumps along the road... Our room wasn't ready when we arrived 40 min following check-in. John... More

Our daughter told us about this place, rating it highly. It's a great little place. Clean. Friendly. Beautiful little gardens and pool area. Couldn't have asked for anything better. Great quality for a reasonable price.

Like other reviewers stated, the front desk staff has very bad customer service. If you make any special requests, they will treat you like you are from another planet. I asked for a microwave in the room and they said normally they do not have microwaves unless it is an upgrade/premium room, but they will try. One was not installed... More

This place is clean, quiet and well maintained. The bus stops right in front on El Camino Real and it is within walking distance of stores and shops. The staff is friendly and responsive. I have stayed in several places in Palo Alto, always looking for a good price, and this is by far the best.

My wife recently survived a near death coma. This was to be her first outing to see our niece graduate from Stanford. We called ahead to explain her need to avoid strong odors and disinfectants which can cause her to have seizures. When we arrived we asked if we could just check the room out to avoid any problems. We... More

The general consuls on this board regarding decent clean rooms and a good location are accurate. I personally do not have any trouble with the AC. The reviews on staff are also correct. Both folks working in the front office are oddly rude. Upon check in I was sternly lectured about not parking in certain spots. But most strange was... More

The Country Inn is reasonably priced and is very very clean. I have stayed with my family at this motel twice and have never been dissapointed. The staff at the hotel is great and very helpful. Once again I have to say this hotel is very clean.

Rates very,very reasonable. They offer a continental breakfast but it's really just a quick something to hold you over. But the bed re so comfortable. Nice garden area to sit or a nice pool. With rooms going over $200 in this area this is a great deal and nice rooms. I was traveling by myself and felt very safe and... More

It's such a gem! My husband and I love our weekend getaways to Palo Alto, and a couple of years ago we discovered The Country Inn! It's a great place to stay! The price is so reasonable for the area! The grounds are beautifully maintained, it's location is prime for being near Stanford Shopping Center, University and Hospital! The rooms... More
