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.

If you have to be in the area, the Atherton Inn should be your first choice. All five rooms are on the second floor, but there is an elevator, if needed.The rooms are large, comfortable, and inviting, or you can relax in the spacious common room on the first floor. The inn is in a residential area, but the street... More

I found Atherton Inn via TripAdvisor, so it is fitting that I leave a review here. I have delayed a bit, only because I don’t want to ruin my chances of finding an available room in the future! We stayed at the Inn for 5 nights at the end of August/beginning of September. This place is fantastic –they have truly... More

If you need to stay near Stanford, bypass the other hotels on El Camino Real and go north to West Selby Lane to stay at the Atherton Inn. This very lovely bed and breakfast is an excellent place to stay. The house is very large, the rooms are large and well furnished and the breakfast cooked to order in the... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Atherton Inn. The room was large and clean, and the breakfast made extremely well and to order. We were able to do some laundry easily. Definitely would stay there again.
