I stayed here one night on business. Many hotels in Palo Alto were pretty expensive and the Comfort Inn was a decent budget option, although it was still pricey in my opinion. The room was nothing special, but was generally clean. The hotel did not provide conditioner, so bring your own. The "continental breakfast" that the hotel provided included pre-packaged... More

Great location for visiting Stanford University. Easy to get to back & forth, close to several restaurants and shops. Rooms are simple, but nice and clean. A two-story building, motel type arrangement, with room doors opening to the parking lot. Refrigerator & microwave in the room were very convenient. Great breakfast provided. Staff members were very friendly and helpful.

We needed a dog friendly hotel and the Comfort Inn was one of the few. We went with very low expectations but were pleasantly surprised. It was clean, quiet, and convenient. We only spent one night and arrived quite late. The sheets are a little itchy but then again you aren't getting Frette Italian linens on your bed. Also coffee... More

The location is right off busy El Camino. A bit of noise from traffic but not too bad. Front desk young man was very nice. Door in our room had huge cracks so you could see the outside a bit since it was not properly installed. Ice machine did not work. Carpet was clean and looked fairly new. Nice LCD... More

We had relatives coming from Latin America at midnight, and booked this hotel due to its proximity to the family. Of course, their plane was delayed, requiring refiguring the arrangements. Nelson, who managed the front desk during this time could not have been nicer or more professional. He rearranged their stay, without adding extra charges. He reduced the room rate... More

Recently my wife and family booked a stay at the comfort inn. Upon arrival my wife informed the front desk that our stay was incorrectly booked and that it was for an additional evening. THe night clerk was very accommodating and said it would not be a problem and would make the change. While we were out of the hotel... More

My dad and I stayed at the Comfort Inn Palo Alto on a visit to Stanford University. Upon arrival, the guy at the front desk was very friendly. He also offered to give us a room on the second floor as to avoid any kind of noise had we been on the first floor. Our room was clean and well... More

Needed a room due to having someone in Stanford Hospital. The check in staff was very friendly and the room came with free wifi. The room itself was clean but reminded me of a road motel in the sixties. The beds were average at best and climate control was either high or off. Very average place to stay and below... More

The room itself was clean and the bed was decent. The guy at the front desk was very friendly and the free wifi was one of the reasons I booked this hotel. Cons- extremely noisy! The road is busy, even at midnight. I can hear almost every noise from the parking lot, the walkway, and the adjacent rooms - people... More

Don't stay at this motel unless you're doing business and don't intend to spend too much time there. It has a kind of half clean feeling. The beds are very mediocre. The breakfast, not too bad, but I really never ate much of it. I was in California on business so it sufficed, but I definitely would not recommend this... More
