I stayed at the Atherton Inn for two nights recently and it was a wonderful experience. Anne, the innkeeper, was very warm and welcoming and made sure I had everything I needed. All five rooms are on the second floor, but there is an elevator in addition to the spectacular curving staircase. The rooms are extremely spacious, all with step-in... More

What a wonderful place this is.. The house is sheer luxury at a very competitive price, Ann makes all very welcome and is a perfect host. We both had a great stay and will certainly go back again. Whether you're on business or pleasure it's a good base for seeing San Francisco,but far enough out of town to be cosy... More

Giving a dinner speech at The Village Pub in Woodside, Atherton Inn B&B was the perfect choice since it is the closest lodging to the pub and came highly recommended. First, the welcome was warm and friendly. Mini muffins warm from the oven were just placed on the counter. Yummy! Annie, a nice gal from Scotland showed me around the... More

My wife and I wanted to find a place to stay near Redwood City that was away from the busy traffic areas, closer to I-280, and near Canada College where we were visiting. The Inn fit the bill perfectly---a quiet location in a residential area, a well maintained 5 bedroom facility that was built specifically to be a B &... More

I had such high hopes for the Atherton Inn. I love going to B&B's and always have a wonderful time. There is a certain friendliness and level of caring that most innkeepers have. This was not my experience at the Atherton Inn. From the welcome to the checkout, this place was cold and impersonal. Instead of going just a little... More

We just returned from a 4-day stay at Atherton Inn B&B and had a wonderful time. The purpose of our trip was a combination of business in Silicon Valley and the pleasure of visiting some area gardens. Located in a quiet upscale neighborhood this lovely estate home was built to accommodate travelers with 5 beautiful 2nd story rooms accessible by... More

I'm not a B&B person. That being said, the rooms were nice. We had 2 rooms. Each had a fireplace. Very large bathrooms with tub and shower. Beds were a little worn, they had the no mans land in the middle. The lady of the house was very kind. Breakfast was yummy. Pretty property.

The Atherto Inn is an upscale B&B in a perfect location for a stay in Silicon Valley. The house is beautiiful and accommodations are so lovely. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Breakfasts are delicious and made to order. Just a short ride to the most popular destinations, this inn is superior to any hotel in the area.

The Atherton Inn is a gem! The rooms are comfortable, clean, and well-appointed. They cater to a business clientele, so the breakfasts are cooked to order rather than the elegant breakfasts some associate with bed and breakfasts. The innkeeper is friendly and helpful. There is nowhere I'd rather stay in the South Bay.
