This is the second time I've stayed here and to me it's obvious that the innkeepers take pride in this motel. Both the grounds and the rooms are spotless. The fact that it's family owned and not a chain speaks volumes. Kudos to the management. Truly a great place to stay for the price.

We were pleasantly surprised by this little motel/hotel in Palo Alto. Our room was spacious and well furnished, and the exterior of the motel and grounds appeared to be well maintained. Definitely one to consider if you are visiting the Palo Alto/Menlo area

We canceled a two-night reservation several days before our planned weekend stay. Then on Friday night we received an email welcoming us to the Country Inn. I phoned the proprietor John and he denied receiving our cancellation and insisted we pay for at least one of the nights we had reserved, or he would not let rooms to us in... More

We have been staying at this motel a lot recently when my husband has to go to Stanford Medical Center. It has been beautifully upgraded and has beautiful landscaping all around it. The other great thing is that it is really reasonable considering prices in the area. We highly recommend it!

This is my second time staying at this motel. It is so well appointed I almost hesitate to refer to it as a motel. Everything about this place is impeccable, clean and tidy. A beautiful little spot in the middle of the city. I travel a lot and it is rare that you find such a well kept inn that... More

Not worth the $20 I saved per night. The motel has a run-down exterior. Rooms are outdated. Has mold growing in shower grout and has weird smell in room. Motel is noisy being right next to 6 lane heavy traffic road and the doors do not seal well.

Dear JimmyJ146, We are so sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at our Inn. In the last 2 years all of our rooms have been redecorated with new furniture, new comforters, bedding, and new carpets and paint. Our grounds may be a little "sad" due to the extreme drought our area is experiencing. We are attempting to do... More

We were looking for a place to stay in Palo Alto when visiting our son. It is hard to find good priced accommodation in this area but The Country Inn is great. I previewed many Hotels in Palo Alto and the Country Inn was the best value by far. It is an older style Motel but very clean and comfortable.... More

Don't let the standard appearance of the exterior fool you. The rooms were unique and welcoming with modern decor. We stayed in the corner room (lounge I believe) and were very pleased. John checked us in and was friendly and offered restaurant suggestions. The bumps along the road... Our room wasn't ready when we arrived 40 min following check-in. John... More

Our daughter told us about this place, rating it highly. It's a great little place. Clean. Friendly. Beautiful little gardens and pool area. Couldn't have asked for anything better. Great quality for a reasonable price.

Like other reviewers stated, the front desk staff has very bad customer service. If you make any special requests, they will treat you like you are from another planet. I asked for a microwave in the room and they said normally they do not have microwaves unless it is an upgrade/premium room, but they will try. One was not installed... More
