I was here on business and found that everything this hotel offered made for a great trip to Palo Alto. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others. Clean, and comfortable surroundings. There was a pleasant view from the balcony of the creek and trees. Unfortunately due to the drought, there was no water. The amenities were... More

One of the best places I have ever stayed at. Rooms were nice and clean, quiet even with it being next to a main road. Staff was very helpful with and reservation mix-up, fixed it in a manner of minutes. I would recommend this hotel to any one.

This was the hotel that was designated for a business conference I attended. I was pleasantly surprised. Older hotel, but my room had been updated and was very comfortable. Quiet location near a very nice bike trail / walking path. I don't like when the room doors open directly to the outside. Hotel staff was very nice. Coffee and pastry... More

We were extremely pleased with the Creekside Inn. It has a secluded, quiet feel to it, even though it is on El Camino Real. (Incidentally, given the lack of rain in California, the creek itself is dry.) The rooms--at least the deluxe one in which we stayed--are large. Plenty of space in the room itself and in the bathroom. Everything... More

I stayed here because I was doing some work at one of the nearby hospitals. I did not have a car and one of the reasons I picked this hotel is because they offer a free shuttle for nearby locations. The website asks for a 1 hr notice for a reservation. The first day I went into the office with... More

Stayed one night in connection with a meeting at Stanford. Chose because of proximity to park + Stanford. Very welcoming and helpful reception during the visit. Room quite big with great bed, good bathroom with all amenities and a balcony. Nice and easy - would definitely go back. Note: this is not a 10 floor business hotel (which are usually... More

Stayed for 2 nights for college visit to Stanford. Very close, and car service eliminated stress of finding parking, etc. Bed was very soft so we did not have restful nights. I just get so irritated having to pay $400 per night for a renovated small motel room.

We traveled to Palo Alto from Northern California so my husband could have surgery at Stanford Medical Center. I learned from a similar surgery he'd had at Stanford that he would not be able to travel home immediately and would be more comfortable sleeping sitting up for the first night or two. Including pre-op and post-op visits, we have stayed... More

Needed a place for myself and two teen-aged girls to attend a sporting event nearby at the University. The room felt like a quaint studio with a balcony nestled with trees! Fantastic breeze, fresh air, and a hammock in the garden area! Staff super friendly and attentive. We will definitely stay here again for the same event next year!

We were visiting family in Mountain View and Los Altos and needed a place for three of us to stay. We chose the Creekside Inn because of its location, the room configuration and pricing. We were pleasantly surprised when we checked in. We had a ground floor room with a fabulous patio overlooking the creek. The grounds all around were... More
