The Atherton is a beautifully built and maintained inn, about 35 minutes from the heart of San Francisco. The neighborhood is quiet, and the grounds are cool, green, and beautiful, with decks and patios for the guests. Both the guestrooms and the day rooms are spacious and comfortable. We really enjoyed the place, but the innkeepers, Tricia and Jim, made our visit really special.

If you want to enjoy some real R and R and R---this is the place. The Innkeepers are a quiet pleasure---they make you feel welcome however, they don't follow you around. The fresh squeezed orange juice is a real treat for those of us who live in Chicago. The bed so comfortable, we actually bought one and it is on the way to us. What can I say? Just a beautiful setting and ideal place to rest your head. Oh, by the by, the breakfast----the best.

Spacious rooms that are designed for comfort and relaxation. Attentive owners and excellent chef contribute to home like feel. Convenient to main highways but in quiet residential area. Everyone very interested in sharing experiences and suggestions for local activities.

My Husband and I stayed at the Atherton Inn in order for him to visit his doctor at Stanford. On two previous occasions we stayed in cookie cutter establishments that left us cold.
What a difference staying at the Atherton made. It is just perfect. A real Inn with owners on hand to make sure everything is perfect. Don't stay here if you are expecting a bed and breakfast with lacy curtains, lumpy beds and that certain musty smell. Just check out the photos on their web site and what you see is what you get along with a great breakfast.
Our only regret was that we could only stay one night.
Thank you Tricia and JIm

My wife and I live in Hong Kong and spent three weeks at the Atherton Inn as I recuperated from hip surgery. Innkeepers Tricia and Jim were wonderfully friendly and supportive and could not have been more helpful. We saw them similarly accommodating to all guests. The rooms and facilities are first-rate: spacious with comfortable beds and all amenities. We enjoyed the Chardonnay Room because it was bright and sunny all day. Breakfasts are cooked to order and will last you through the day. There was always an interesting, eclectic group of other guests at the breakfast table each morning. There are treats and drinks available all day. While there isn't a formal business center, Tricia and Jim were more than willing to help with faxes, etc. The location of the Inn is perfect for anyone visiting Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Atherton or anywhere on the Peninsula up to San Francisco. Five stars, easily!

We chose the Atherton because we wanted somewhere close to where our daugther was working and somewhere that was more warm and friendly than large chain hotels.Wow what a good choice. The owners and staff not only made us feel welcome but invited us to see the Inn as our temporary home from home. The rooms were very clean, well furnished and of a high standard. Nothing was too much. Most things were available, from a complete medicine cabinet to access to the contents of the fridge and invitations to join them watching TV when we were at a loose end. When we spoke to other guests they were all regulars and I can understand why. We would definitely stay here again and that is most unusual for me as I am very fussy. Excellent.
