Liked the atmosphere and grounds. Basically a motel style hotel set along a small creek in a garden setting. The room was a decent size, clean and comfy. Had to switch rooms immediately because the TV was faulty but this was dealt with quickly by giving me another room. The hotel and rooms are slightly worn and in need of... More

The Creekside Inn in Palo Alto was convenient to where we were going each day for meetings, but reminded me of reconditioned old motel units. The room I was in had a small shower stall and no tub. Bottled water (2 given per stay, not per day) could be added (Costco brand) at $1 each. The room cost also included... More

I have stayed at a few hotels in the area and this is by far my favorite. I definitely share their ethos and enjoy this place immensely. The rooms are always clean and every member of staff I have come in contact with has been professional and a pleasure to speak with. The prices can flutuate quite a bit so... More

Our first visit to the Creekside Inn but definitely will not be our last. We spent 3 nights here Labor Day weekend and were pleasantly surprised. We have stayed at several Inns in the area when visiting our son who lives nearby and this was by far the very best of the 3-4 star hotels. Nice very clean large rooms... More

I slept very lightly last night. Good thing I did as at approximately 4:15am an unidentified male used a pass key to open the door to my room (yes, I had neglected to fold the inside bar over the door to prevent the door from being opened from the outside). I woke up, shouted at him, and he ran off... More

Enjoyed our stay here very much. It's a little further from downtown than I expected, but worth the drive. Big rooms facing beautiful gardens. Very nice landscaping. Easy parking. On-site deli and liquor store. Would stay there again.

For me to suffer the inconvenience of booking out to find another hotel speaks to my utter dissatisfaction with creekside inn. Confirming my online booking was excruciating. I looked past it. On my first day the Creekside shuttle was 25 minutes late. No apology. I looked past it. At night I could hear every movement of my upstairs Neighbour. I... More

There are some nice things about this hotel including the location and the lovely garden/walking path. However, if you want a relatively good nights sleep you'll need to bring your own mattress. It is also pretty loud/thin walls. They have a "shuttle" that we tried to use but we were going 5.6 miles and they have a 5 mile limit.... More
