My husband and I have stayed here on numerous occasions when we visit our son and his family in California. As has been mentioned in other postings, the rooms are clean, pleasant and priced reasonably especially for the area . . . we have never had a problem with the couple managing the property, and they have always been helpful...

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

During a convention week in Palo Alto with hotel rooms scarce, we desperately needed a hotel room during our grandson's surgery. It looked like we would have room changes, skipped coverage, but husband/wife John/Barbara worked hard, including rescheduling some things to along us to have uninterrupted day & night rest shifts. Thank you. The property has all the amenities and... More

My husband and I visit family in Palo Alto several times a year. We have stayed in many hotels but this is by far one of the best. We like the fact that it is family owned and the fact that it is obviously a facility that is loved and cared for. The rooms are upgraded and spotless. The price... More

OVERALL: A moderately priced (for Palo Alto) clean, comfortable motel. Rooms are around a pleasant landscaped area with trees. Most rooms are off the busy El Camino Real so there is no traffic noise. A very pleasant, clean, well maintained pool area. We did not receive a confirmation when we reserved online and had to call and ask for one.... More

The couple that runs this motel should not be in the hospitality service business. They were rude, hostile, & argumentative and were appalling listeners. The air conditioner in our room wasn’t working properly and John insisted it was because we didn’t have it set to the correct mode. When we (repeatedly) explained that we had just turned it to “fan... More
