This is a great find in the heart of Silicone Valley! Very clean, recently updated, great location. You can't beat the price! Close to Stanford University, lots of shopping and restaurants. Quiet location.

Creekside is a great place to stay while in the Palo Alto area. It is centrally located, quiet and has a rustic feel to it. The staff is SUPER and very attentive. The only negative if any is the shower is very very slow. That could be due to the water problems and lack of rain but it is very... More

I’ve used the Creekside Inn on a number of occasions spanning many years and it continues to impress. A very good hotel, particularly well located for Palo Alto businesses. Great staff, greeted by Jason who looked after me well. Rooms nice and clean and tidy. Had breakfast included next door at Cibo’s which was excellent.

Nice property at a very convenient location. We stayed at the Creekside Inn while attending a water polo tournament with my son's high school team. The property was very convenient to the location and also very close to good dining options. Very nice staff.

OK it's not the Ritz. But once you get past the sticker shock of nearly $400 a night for a motel, it's not that bad. To be fair, nearly everything in this neighborhood seems to be of the motel variety, whatever the name. So here's a take on both the pros and cons of Creekside Inn: - No central air... More

Good value, really nice property, nice people, about 2 miles from Stanford Stadium. Rooms are not elaborate or huge, but modern and very nice. Restaurant in hotel is fairly nice, and also there is a coffee / ice cream / convenience store on premises that is pretty good and very handy. Several restaurant choices within easy walking distance as well.

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.
