“What a great team!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

I visited Creekside Inn on Friday night (11/2/12), and just want to say thanks for the great experience.

From the Front Desk staff (Elena, Chrsitine and Naveed) to the housekeeping and maintenance folks (Pedro and Benjamin), I was very impressed with the professionalism and thoughtfulness each person exhibited.

I'm hoping to return again soon!

Thanks so much!

We stayed at the Creekside while visiting our son at Stanford and were very pleased in every way with the hotel. The grounds were very nicely landscaped, we enjoyed our little patio, and the room had some nice little extras (such as a magnified makeup mirror) that you don't get everywhere. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. We ate breakfast at the adjoining restaurant, Cibo, and enjoyed that too. We will definitely stay at the Creekside Inn when next in Palo Alto.

Whenever we go to Palo Alto and Stanford we stay at the Creekside Inn (twice so far this year). It is a delightful motel in a park-like setting with a babbling stream outside most rooms (many with small patios). It is an older establishment with some of the limitations one might expect but it is remarkably comfortable and well-maintained with an attentive, welcoming and helpful staff. And prices much below those of other hotels close to Stanford and in the heart of Silicon Valley. There is free parking, shuttle service and a good basic continental breakfast included (rolls, fruit and beverages). The location is a couple of blocks south of Page Mill Road and about three miles from Stanford and downtown Palo Alto. It is on a busy street but set back from the traffic so that the rooms and quiet and restful. Highly recommended.

was staying in creekside with my friend for a getaway weekend. When we arrived we got a warm welcome from Mr. Prabin Thapa. He was very friendly and he made sure that we had a good stay. Initially we were given a room which faced the road. It was a big problem for us since we wanted a a peaceful vacation. We wanted to be away from a big crowd and noise and he was kind enough to change our room that faced the pool. It was really quite and peaceful.The room was big and spacious. It was clean and well-equipped There was enough outlets for charging our electronics. Mr. Thapa was working and the service he provided was impeccable and helpful. We will definitely come back here!!

Was in the area on a business trip and the cheapest "national chain" hotels we were finding were all $350 or more. I did a quick search on Trip Advisor and looked into Creekside Inn. Upon arrival, i got a warm greeting, an offer to attend the happy hour and a reminder that there was a shuttle available if i needed a ride to a nearby restaurant. My room was totally fine with ample outlets for charging all my electronics, too. This was a very pleasant and affordable alternative and i'll definitely be coming back here on future trips.

Stayed for Stanford Homecoming weekend and couldn't have been more pleased with the hotel. Convenient location on El Camino near Stanford, but set back enough that you can't hear the traffic (and all the lush landscaping leads to a very restful atmosphere). Rooms are clean and well-equipped with everything you'd need and the service at the front desk was super friendly and helpful.

Been staying here for over 35 years, keep coming back & am never disappointed. Built around a creekbed with mature, lush landscaping, Creekside Inn has a very "home-like" feel. Clean, comfortable, quiet, well maintained & close to all things Stanford/Palo Alto.
