The room my husband and I stayed in had to be the most comfortable, clean and stylish I've seen in a long time. I live in the country and when I was sitting on the patio I felt like I was still at home. Their landscaping is incredible, as is the staff. I don't like city life but wow…this place... More

Overall, a very nice experience. The hotel is in an outstanding location. It was clearly once a standard 'drive-up motel' that has been painstakingly renovated. The grounds and exterior have an 'Asian Garden' feel. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed, but not opulent. Each has a patio or balcony overlooking the gardens. Staff was friendly and helpful. I had... More

Very nice hotel. We didn't use the pool or anything but it was very nice looking. We ordered room service which was amazing from acini restaurant right there on the grounds. The only drawback we found was the bed wasn't very comfortable. Everyone was very friendly and we were grateful to have a nice place to stay after a long... More

A perfect place to reunite with my wife after a month apart. We had a wonderful dinner nearby and enjoyed the overall setting. I'm glad we found this place and would highly recommend it to others. That's my story.

This older motel does actually have a creek (dry in the summer) running through it--mature landscaping, like the PA of 30 years ago. Good squirrel population! Rooms are large and very well maintained. Prices are reasonable for the location, about a mile from Stanford. Try a creekside room--the first floor ones have nice wooded patios.

The front desk experience was pleasant. Our room was clean and comfortable. The 'Inn' is made up of separate buildings, set back from a main thoroughfare and amid trees and a seasonal creek. I would stay here again.

Stayed two nights at this long time business favorite near the headquarters of some of the biggest and oldest names in tech. Room was very clean and comfortable. American breakfast at the attached restaurant was tasty and certainly adequate to start the day. Great value. Would stay again.

Staff was very friendly and helpful But, what impressed us most is the cleanliness of the room. The continental breakfast was satisfying and presented well. We very much appreciated the helpful reservation reminder sent via e-mail. Furthermore, the shuttle service to the stadium was a welcome service.

Stayed at this property for two nights while attending a football game. The property was conveniently located and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was good sized and even had a balcony sitting area. We found the hotel's proximity to a deli on site and restaurants within walking distance to be a real plus. Loved the in... More

They completely out did themselves from service, to technology, to the breakfast the provided at Cici's! My wife and I are well traveled and I truly can say we have never experienced a stay like we did at the Creekside Inn.
