We arrived before 10am without reservations and the front desk staff was extremely accommodating and friendly. While we were having their complimentary breakfast the staff informed us that they expedited the cleaning of a King room and that it would be ready for us. The room was very clean and spacious. The bathroom was very clean. Everything was in working... More

The good points: Good location, clean and the breakfast is ok The things needs improvement: The shower stream was really weak You can hear every step in the room above you (I stayed at the ground floor) Some noise from the hi way if you stay in the back rooms The bottom line is it's an ok stay.

We have stayed in several Comfort Inns and this one is as good if not better than most. Thought the price was a little high but Stanford did have a football game that day. The lady in reception was very pleasant and efficient. Breakfast was better than some we've had in Comfort hotels in the past. The hotel purports to... More

The beds were comfortable. We had everything we needed in the room. The only things that bothered me were they had mold in the bathroom on the floor grout and the shower. The toilet paper roll was a ways away from the toilet so it was a bend and reach to get the toilet paper. We were in pinch and... More

I was in town on business at Stanford and wanted to be close to the University. This is only a few miles away so the location was great. I don't usually stay at a hotel without internal doors but I made an exception due to the good price and the fact I was pretty confident this was not a sketchy... More

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
