We stayed here last year , so we decide to stay here again. What a wonderful place , the grounds so wonderful. Clean freshly remodeled rooms, super.
It's like a dream spot , not cheap , but sometimes it nice to have a refined hotel, great place to visit the city from by using the Caltrain !

Dear Mike T,
Thank you so much for your 5-star review of our hotel and for your continued loyalty and patronage of the Creekside Inn. We're so pleased you enjoyed our garden landscaping as well as our recent renovations to our guestrooms. As you mentioned, our location is an easy Caltrain ride away from the city of San Francisco. Thank you again for your review and we look forward to seeing you again soon on your next visit to Palo Alto.

Sincerely,
Luis Carreno

3400 El Camino Real, Palo Alto, CA
650-493-2411

We stayed in Palo Alto; down El Camino Real on the Left, going south in another place (My Lovely Partner's [MLP]) company paid the rent.) I was surplus so I got plenty of time to study the more attractive Hotel across the Boulevard. It was Creekside Inn; where I reserved a room some 30 days before the event.

Creekside Inn is on a large corner site, has two Clusters of rooms, one is 1970's vintage conventional 2 story design, the other is a later high rise structure connected to the rest by a pretty bridge over a nice Creek. There is a small restaurant away from the corner; a small convenience store and the office take up the rest of the site. The restaurant is pricey and we have never patronized it. We prefer he nearby "Fish Market" or smaller restaurants over in old town Palo Alto.

All of the common areas are lavishly landscaped and it is a joy at night. The first stay coincided with a large group of womens' volleyball teams who were in town for a tournament. The Atmosphere was exciting; lots of happy chat going on everywhere. The second time at Creekside was quieter but that did not detract from the beauty of the place.

We would go there often but it is well known and popular; usually sold out if Stanford has an event.

Rooms are neat and clean, parking onside is adequate, a limited continental breakfast is minimal.

Room Tip: Any floor above first in the 'tower' for privacy and tolerable street traffic. Nearly all units in the older structure are similar to most found along the highway. Creekside is ideal for groups.

very comfortable, great staff. Free wifi helps you stay connected and unworried. They receive packages for no additional cost and leave it in your room! they make you feel special and welcome.
rooms are a bit old, but clean, big and comfortable. totally recommend it.
it might get a bit loud, as you can hear the water running in other rooms, but it is no big deal.
it's location is perfect. you have a great restorant right next door, and many food options in walking distance.

I stayed overnight at the Creekside Inn. The staff, particularly Makiea, were very friendly and helpful. I have Parkinson's and they had a handicap room ready for me and let me check in early.

I slept very well that night - which is unusual for me when traveling!

The room was very clean and tidy - very nice! In the morning at the continental breakfast, I had some trouble walking, so Makiea brought food to me, and cleared away my trash. She also helped me when I came in to make sure my bill was clear. And she was most considerate in stowing my luggage after i checked out of the room.

It is a great being next door to a terrific deli.

Room Tip: My room was ground floor - be sure to check the sliding glass doors. Mine was unlocked!

Visited Stanford and spent two nights at the Creekside Inn. Wifi was terrible, nothing the 2nd night. sort of ironic for a hotel in Palo Alto. Also my first morning a giant tour bus parked by my room running its engine like they like to do. I called the front desk and they said that almost never happens. not very useful for me!

Room Tip: don't stay in the front with the tour busses

Dear Guest:
Thank you for your comments and I apologize for the inconvenience you experienced with the tour bus. As a result of your concern, we will start asking the buses to park along the side of El Camino to prevent this issue from disrupting our guests in the future. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

I have also called our WI-FI operator to make sure they check our system; however, we have not seen any additional complaints as of late regarding our WI-FI connection. Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance and thank you again for taking the time to provide us with your valuable feedback.
