“Best value for money hotel in the area”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

There was everything I expected there to be - garage for parking, nice spacious room with a comfy bed and a selection of pillows, clean bathroom, air conditioning unit in the room (this was especially useful as the weather was somewhat cold during my stay). The room was pretty quiet, the loudest thing in it was the fridge, so eventually I had to turn it off since I was not storing anything in it anyway. They offer great variety of food at the breakfast, and also have vending machines on the 2nd and 3rd floors, not to mention lots of cafes and restaurants in the area.

Nice size room, great breakfast and comfortable bed & pillows.
It was clean and quiet.
No complaints.......if business (or pleasure) brings me back to this area again I would stay again.
Just don't expect much in the way of 'extra's'....but if all you desire is a clean, comfortable, quiet room, this is your place.

I have stayed at the hotel several times when I have visited Menlo Park on business. The accommodations are great, the price is very reasonable for Silicon Valley and the staff is AMAZING!! So nice, accommodating...really a nice, small family type atmosphere. Also like the fact that you can't get to the rooms without going through the front desk, which is much safer than the other garden hotels where your hotel room front door faces the parking lot and anyone can come up to your door.

Definitely one of those great finds in Silicon Valley!!!

The extremely helpful and pleasant staff was definitely a plus to the very clean room. The bed was very comfortable. I was very pleased with my stay and it is only a mile away from Kaiser hospital in Redwood City. The breakfast was very good, too - many choices including 3-4 hot entrees.

We needed to stay in this area (Stanford and Menlo Park) and was happy they had space available (many hotels did not.) It was clean, conveniently located on El Camino Real on the Atherton line, and provided everything you need for a brief stay. Traffic noise was not a problem. The staff was extremely welcoming and helpful; the breakfast was good. Only concern was that our room was next to the exercise room and noise from people on the treadmills at 5:30 a.m. provided an unwelcomed wake up call. A friend was in another room and had no complaints. I went for a run in the neighborhood and felt safe and found places with little traffic. Price was reasonable for the area. I'd stay here again.

We were very impressed with this Hotel. The lobby is clean and the front desk girl was extremely nice and welcoming to us. We got into our room and it was very nice & clean! I am a very picky person when it comes to hotels. The hotel cleaning ladies were very nice and polite. The free breakfast buffet was hot & very good. I have an allergy to onions and the sweet lady who worked there went out of her way to get me a fresh bagel that was not sitting next to a onion bagel!! WOW!! that was a great surprise! The hotel was quiet and had many things to offer us for our stay to make it comfortable. Thank you Holiday Inn Express in Redwood City,CA for making our stay there very pleasant.

Pricey for USD220. Breakfast has lots of "artificial" foods! The in room pop corn / snack package was a pleasant surprise! OK bed.
