I stayed there with my wife over 3 days this summer. The rooms were recently updated in a contemporary decor and in fact, a few of the rooms were being modernized during our stay. The Country Inn has been in Palo Alto for decades but it doesn't look dated or worn-the grounds are well manicured and the pool is small but clean. The service was friendly but the internet signal is fairly weak furthest from the office (as put forth by a previous reviewer). But we didn't stay there for the internet signal-just a good nights rest, which we got on the newish beds. Honestly, for the price in this area it would be hard to go wrong choosing the Country Inn. I would recommend it.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Palo Alto Country Inn was built in 1954 along the El Camino Real, the main thoroughfare of that time. Shaded by large trees and surrounded by orchards, travelers would stay here when visiting Stanford University or the city of San Francisco. Founded by Italian immigrants, the Cesano family took care to provide excellent service, and clean, well-maintained rooms for their guests. Many became good friends as they made the Country Inn their home away from home. Today, the motel lies at the heart of a busy Silicon Valley. Destinations such as Google, Yahoo, Apple, Stanford and many Bay Area attractions are within easy reach. Although the surroundings may have changed, the Cesano children and grandchildren have carried on the traditions of providing an affordable and comfortable place to stay. The staff and the accommodations continue to earn the trust of returning clientele and the rave reviews of new visitors. Some special features of the Country Inn are the lovely garden patio that greets you as you arrive, the pool area with available barbeques and ample patio furniture, rooms with kitchens, free wi-fi, and consistently friendly service. At the Country Inn Motel you will find all of the modern conveniences as well as enjoy the warmth and welcome of a quaint inn of days gone by. Please consider us as your hosts on your next trip to the San Francisco Bay Area. ... more less
