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

We chose this Motel by its ideal location, affordable price, and the excellent reviews. We stayed for 2 nights before we left the Bay Area from SFO APT. The garden with its tall trees creates an optical barrier between the rooms and El Camino Real. The rooms, the garden, the pool - everything is clean and tidy. We should have... More

The room and the grounds are immaculate, the staff does an excellent job keeping everything so clean. The room was updated and modern and the bed was very comfortable. Also the rooms were so quiet, I never heard a peep from the other rooms. The breakfast was a nice touch also, fruit, yogurt, oatmeal and danishes. No mini fridge in... More

I stayed here for 5 nights while a friend was in the Stanford Hospital; it's about a 10-minute drive away. It was quiet, clean and pleasant; much friendlier than staying at a larger chain hotel. Would recommend it.
