Creekside Inn is directly on a very busy road and looks like a motor inn from the 1950's--which essentially it is. The creek in the name has dried up since all of California is currently in a drought. Our room was oddly decorated with a random armchair sitting in a corner with a light but no table and a big section of the room just completely empty.
BUT there are many reasons to recommend this hotel. The owners have obviously made the grounds a priority--beautiful flowers and trees, along with charming benches and tables make it a little oasis right off the highway. Towels are not fluffy but are plenty big, and toiletries are good quality. The room includes a microwave, fridge, and coffee maker. Beds were good quality and the A/C worked fine. We had a little balcony off our room that had chairs for reading and overlooking the garden space. Breakfast is ho-hum with average pastries and coffee, but the staff was friendly. There are other nearby options for breakfast if processed sugar and white flour doesn't float your boat.
Overall, a decent hotel with lovely gardens. We spent 2 nights there and would happily return.
