I live in the area but needed a convenient place to stay while work was being done on my house for a few days. I was able to get a suite with kitchen which was great for convenience and saving a bit of money. I found the hotel to be convenient and charming and the little service I needed was helpful and friendly. It is a simple, modest place but very clean, comfortable and well equipped with such things as reasonable cable TV and wifi. The kitchen was basic and dated in style but equipped with essential dishes, pans etc. and entirely adequate for some cooking with even a gas stove. I had no trouble with wifi where I was and did not notice any noise problems except the occasional pair of people walking briefly right by the room, and that was not a problem late at night. There are some lights on adjacent buildings that are on all night but the window shutters did an adequate job of dealing with that. The shower head is mounted unusually low which was awkward. That is about the only thing that was an issue for me and more an inconvenience than a major problem. Parking is close by. The price was great; note that they do not offer an included breakfast. For me the kitchen was much better since I could have what I usually do but that wouldn't apply to all rooms. Overall I was very pleased with how nice it was for the rate.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Palo Alto Country Inn was built in 1954 along the El Camino Real, the main thoroughfare of that time. Shaded by large trees and surrounded by orchards, travelers would stay here when visiting Stanford University or the city of San Francisco. Founded by Italian immigrants, the Cesano family took care to provide excellent service, and clean, well-maintained rooms for their guests. Many became good friends as they made the Country Inn their home away from home. Today, the inn lies at the heart of a busy Silicon Valley. Destinations such as Google, Yahoo, Apple, Stanford and many Bay Area attractions are within easy reach. Although the surroundings may have changed, the Cesano children and grandchildren have carried on the traditions of providing an affordable and comfortable place to stay. The staff and the accommodations continue to earn the trust of returning clientele and the rave reviews of new visitors. Some special features of the Country Inn are the lovely garden patio that greets you as you arrive, the pool area with available barbeques and ample patio furniture, rooms with kitchens, free wi-fi, and consistently friendly service. At the Country Inn you will find all of the modern conveniences as well as enjoy the warmth and welcome of a quaint inn of days gone by. Please consider us as your hosts on your next trip to the San Francisco Bay Area. ... more less
