Clear pride of ownership and maintenance. Cleanest place I have ever seen, inside and out. Not a paint chip out of place! It's obvious that they have invested (up-to-date bathroom fixtures & tile-work.) Beds comfortable, linens nice. Individual A/C which works well. Windows open to smell fresh air. If you want a microwave or refrig, regular rooms don't have this,... More

Nothing to complain about! I was there for 6 nights last March, it was clean and confortable. Large room with TV, phone and Wifi. Breakfast ok, though could be better. Swimming pool and BBQ equipment, wonderful roses! By the way, you need a car!

I count room cleanliness and overall property maintenance as much more important than ANY amenities, and this motel outshines just about I can remember staying in for the past 25 years in those two areas. It was spic and span, including the window sliders, the walk-ways, the door hardware, the tile grout. Really extraordinary attention to detail in cleaning. Love... More

Good price, location, free wifi, and very clean. Also the breakfast was better than I expected. There were just unexciting individually wrapped commercial muffins or danishes, but also fresh fruit, juices, and some yogurts. The coffee was good.. Our room had air conditioning, but we didn't use it The not as good parts: hard bed, and the smell of whatever... More

We have stayed here once to await the birth of our first grandchild and visit family in the area, and are booked again for the same reason. Our first stay was wonderful, and the only reason I can't give the motel more than 4 stars is that it is a motel. It does not have either a restuarant or fitness... More

As the saying goes: "... you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear".. but this is an excellent try and a welcome relief from the frenzy of Reunion Week at Stanford University. Here, right now, on this Planet, is a sensible and reasonable base for business and pleasure. I believe we were put in the "Broom Closet"... More

I've stayed at the Country Inn a couple of times a year for the past several years, and have never been disappointed. The managers are always friendly and helpful, and the accomodations are a bargain for the Palo Alto area: clean rooms, comfortable beds and attractive grounds. Plus, a convenient location. Highly recommended!

After much research into finding a decent hotel in the area that was not ridiculously over-priced, I stumbled across this little gem. You won't find this hotel on expedia, travelocity, etc. The booking is through the website, or via telephone, and the rates are flat rates. $105 for one night in a king room was a bargain! The rooms and... More

This was a great motel! Our family stayed for 5 days, so we got to know the staff and the grounds really well. They were nice, sweet, and happy! The grounds were beautiful...there are beautiful trees, and the pool was well-lit at night, giving the place a really quiet and calm feeling. The room was clean, and the bathrooms were... More

This was our second stay at the Country Inn. Our first stay was excellent so we decided to book again on this trip. Unfortuanately our room was one of the few that lacked airconditioning. It was equipped with a box fan and it was extemely hot and stuffy. We went to the desk to inquire about changing our room and... More
