We have stayed at this motel several times. We always look forward to our stay here, as the staff is excellent and the rooms are always very clean.

Very nice hotel. Clean, modern rooms, great reception area, the staff couldn't be more helpful. Free transportation! If you don't feel like driving to a restaurant, or a bar - just ask and within minutes they'll send a car with a driver at no charge.

We stayed here last year , so we decide to stay here again. What a wonderful place , the grounds so wonderful. Clean freshly remodeled rooms, super. It's like a dream spot , not cheap , but sometimes it nice to have a refined hotel, great place to visit the city from by using the Caltrain ! Mike

I stayed overnight at the Creekside Inn. The staff, particularly Makiea, were very friendly and helpful. I have Parkinson's and they had a handicap room ready for me and let me check in early.

The hotel is old but in a nice quiet setting. The rooms are updated and the wifi worked decently (but streaming was shaky). The main negative in my mind is there is no hotel restaurant. Cibo, which is next door, is pretty mediocre. And if you come in from a long day and want a quick cocktail you'll be disappointed.... More

Stayed here for a week and this place grew on me after modest first impressions. The front desk staff were consistently welcoming, helpful and friendly, day after day, and the local shuttle was a big help. The room was clean, quiet and ok. As long as the prices stay reasonable, I'd return. The associated restaurant really needs a face lift,... More

Early in January, my daughter underwent brain surgery at Stanford Hospital. We looked up and down the El Camino Real highway, and there were many hotels to choose from. Ranging from the high priced Westin, to dozens of very, very low cost 1950's style motels. I used the reviews from Trip Advisor to narrow in on the Creekside Inn. After... More
