We spent 3 nights, for 2 adults and 4 children. The hotel is organised like a Motel, with each room opening outside. Convenient parking. Rooms are fairly small and with 3 of us in each room, space was tight and bathroom as well. Staff was mostly Spanish speaking but reasonably friendly and efficient. Good things are free WiFi, free coffee... More

Very nice staff. Clean rooms but no water in creek due to drought. Mosley an inn for dropping of students for college. Nothing else really. Great staff and very helpful. Free shuttle to down town which is great.

Very clean, new bath, beautiful grounds and lots of places to eat near by. There is a deli/market on the grounds with good sandwiches, a restaurant and laundry room. Didn't hear noise from rooms around us. I'd definitely stay there again and recommend to my family and friends.

This is a nice place with comfortable, very clean rooms and great service. I was here for just 2 nights but felt very welcome by the staff. Not a lot of decent food options nearby but the hotel restaurant offers decent food. I didn't try the pool or fitness room, will try them out next time I'm back.

Actually only went here because there was a deal and the alternatives were expensive, but I'll go there next time by choice. Quality of the room was high, clean and modern, computers that let me check in for my flight, complimentary morning coffee & danish regardless of whether you're having breakfast there. Ample parking, nice & quiet. Good hotel.

Loved everything about Creekside and will stay again if going to a show at Shoreline. I loved the view of the creek from my room and the balcony over looking the creek. The market was just a few steps from the lobby so I was able to purchase a bottle of wine (thank you for providing a wine opener)!. Love... More

All you need is here at Creekside Inn. Quiet, Comfort, Convenient and All. Staffs are always more than welcome attitude to make your visit happier. "Inn" makes you feel unsure about the grade of the property? No worries, you just find out much more than you expect.

We have stayed at several places along El Camino Real as I have frequent checkups at Stanford Medical Center. While there are cheaper places, you pay for what you get! Our room was on the third floor of the tower. It was very clean (I am picky), modern, comfortable, and QUIET. Other places are too close to the road so... More

This probably once was a group of apartments or an old-school motel. It's been nicely renovated to put together several buildings of either inside- or outside-entrance rooms. Clean, nothing fancy, but central to Palo Alto with a restaurant onsite and a very thorough shop in the front that had gourmet protein bars, nice wines and beers, fancy waters and decent... More

Another trip to Palo Alto, another excellent stay at the Creekside Inn. We requested an upgrade at check-in and were moved to a Tower room on the third floor, overlooking the pool and gardens. The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. We have stayed at other properties in Palo Alto, but the Creekside Inn is now... More
