Rooms were spacious, very clean, and a great bed and bathroom We were right on the creek (room 125) with a private patio. It was very quiet. Our room had a microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker, hairdryer and robes. All in all a great experience. We will return.

We enjoyed our stay at Creekside Inn for two evenings. Beds were comfortable and and staff was accommodating. Location is great for anyone needing to get to the Stanford Clinics. The first night stay was very quiet and warm, but the second night stay we got a room that was noisy--could hear our neighbors until 10:30 at night. The bathroom was small, especially for someone with a walker. The room was very reasonably priced for Palo Alto.

Very comfortable room with deck. Quiet and I sleep very well. Great garden setting and nice architectural update treatment for what I geuess was an early 60's inn. Restaurant was kind of sad but I guess in these days of covid we were lucky to have one at all.

A Stanford recommendation which turned out to be a very pleasant room looking out into the garden/creek area. Spacious room and very comfortable bed. My only complain would be the European shower head does not work well with the low-flow shower. I would definitely come back again.

Usually really like this hotel. I like the quietness at night of the room as I'm a light sleeper. The best section is by the Creek, (hence the hotel name) which is away from El Camino Real and quieter. Recently the check in reception on my last two trips has been cold, and odd. They require you to post a "Damage / security deposit" and a waiver saying that you won't be holding parties in your room. I would think it's a simple thing to see that a returning guest who has never caused any problems at the hotel would have to sign waivers, but that's just me. I like this hotel because it's convenient for my business and while the rooms are a bit more retro odd in furniture, it's a lot quieter of a stay than other comparable hotels in the area that are closer to Downtown Palo Alto and the train tracks.

Dear paulbY979GT, Thank you very much for taking the time to share your feedback. Our refundable security deposit and no smoking/no party policy have always been a part of our hotel policy. We recently added to explain these policies at check-in to prevent unfortunate events at our hotel and provide a understanding to all our hotel guests. We appreciate you for always choosing the Creekside Inn when returning in town for business and we hope to see you again the next time you visit the area. Stay safe and healthy! Sincerely, GM
