This past weekend, my husband and I randomly selected The Country Inn to stay the night because the property was so appealing! The managers, John and Barbara, were very nice and so accommodating! We requested a king room and were quoted the price of $105 - our jaws dropped! Palo Alto is such an expensive area and thought we'd pay at least $150 or more for mediocre accommodations!

It was such a nice surprise when we walked into our newly renovated room above a beautiful pool appointed with quality pool furniture! The grounds were beautifully maintained and our room was set far back from noisy El Camino Road! The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was large and immaculate! They also offer kitchens if you plan to be a long-term guest!

The value was fantastic for the price and the location is minutes from the Stanford Shopping Center, the Town & Country Shopping Center with some great restaurants, Stanford University and Hospital, and downtown Palo Alto!

We were very lucky to discover it! Not all the rooms have been renovated, so you may want to request a newly renovated room!

Room Tip: Ask for a newly renovated room over the pool! Keep in mind that in summer, it maybe a noisy location, so just request a room further from the pool!

My family stays here often when my sister is at Stanford Hospital for treatment. The rooms are very clean, comfortable and updated. For being off El Camino Real, the rooms are amazingly quiet. Like that they offer a discount for families of Stanford patients. Would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Love #17 on pool side - double queen bed rooms. We also get #18 with double double beds that connects with #17 with a kitchenette.

I stayed there with my wife over 3 days this summer. The rooms were recently updated in a contemporary decor and in fact, a few of the rooms were being modernized during our stay. The Country Inn has been in Palo Alto for decades but it doesn't look dated or worn-the grounds are well manicured and the pool is small but clean. The service was friendly but the internet signal is fairly weak furthest from the office (as put forth by a previous reviewer). But we didn't stay there for the internet signal-just a good nights rest, which we got on the newish beds. Honestly, for the price in this area it would be hard to go wrong choosing the Country Inn. I would recommend it.
