Our room was very clean, quiet, and comfortable with quick access to the pool. This was a perfect place to stay for a summer salsa dance event at Stanford. We enjoyed a delicious dinner at the adjacent Cibo Restaurant.

It was a great experience staying at this Inn. Very attentive and friendly staff. We booked a queen sized bed room through Booking.com. When we got to our room, we were surprised to find a big, clean and beautifully decorated room with a balcony. We really enjoyed our stay! Thank you Creekside Inn!

We have been staying here for the past 8 years while our son was at Stanford and always had a good experience. The room in Bldg F was our favorite, was always quiet, clean, and furnishings up to date. In fact most of the rooms have recently been updated. I just stayed in a Queen tower room, and was impressed... More

We stayed 5 nights last week to see our children at nearby Stanford University. We didn't need anything special, but of course the basics...clean and comfortable. The location is wonderful and the attached Driftwood Deli is a great place for sandwiches etc. The front desk staff was fine, but especially Grant, who went way above to make sure we had... More

We stayed at this hotel for a night during our honeymoon when it was named the Flamingo Motel. Although this visit was not quite as memorable, we did enjoy our stay. The room was clean and staff was friendly.

Booked two rooms and got an upstairs and a downstairs room in an older section. The bottom floor room was great. The 2nd floor room had a spongy, very squeaky floor and an odd shower door arrangement. The shower had a fixed glass panel covering only the half of the shower opening near the shower head. You had to get... More

The front desk people, Grant, Yadira and David were beyond kind and friendly. They made us feel like we owned the place. The other staff were just as friendly and our room was beautiful and super updated and spotless. The view was exceptional and relaxing. We had a wonderful pool side experience as we enjoyed the pool and the nearby... More

I stayed her with my 6 year old daughter for only one night. As other reviewers have said the grounds are tranquil and quiet. Price was great especially for the area. King bed was very cozy and had lots of fluffy pillows which I love. My only complaint, which is rather silly, is there was no pay-per-view. The reason this... More

Very nice hotel, my husband and I really enjoyed during the stay. We had a king bedroom and stayed for 5 nights. The bed was comfortable and clean. The shuttle bus is free which helps us a lot for visiting Stanford University. Highly recommend it to anyone visits Stanford University.
