I stayed at Creekside because it was convenient to Stanford and was pleasantly surprised by the quiet I enjoyed, even though i had a standard room in the tower facing the side street. The bed was so comfy, with nice quality linens. Nicely appointed room, no complaints.

They have tried to upgrade this traveloge type rooms into something more current includeing idintifiying with the Tech world.

I have stayed at the Creekside Inn twice for business and find it comfortable, nicely appointed, and quiet. It is not an exciting location or stunning in any way, but it works well in a convenient location and at an affordable price (in contrast to what I view as incredibly overpriced hotels in town like the Sheraton and Westin). It...

I'm here for a work assignment at the Tesla Motors facility on Deer Creek Road in Palo Alto. The traffic in the mornings and evenings here is VERY busy, so hotels that are even as close as 5 to 10 miles away can take you 40 minutes or more to commute. I found the Creek Side Inn, which was only...

Palo Alto is a strange place for hotels. For Silicon Valley you'd expect the big chains to have a huge presence, but instead the business traveler is faced with making a choice from smaller chains or individual hotels. The Creekside Inn belongs to a smaller chain. From the outside it looks motel-ish, with outdoor access to rooms, but once onside...

My husband and I wanted a nice place to stay while visiting our son in Menlo Park. This Inn was a great improvement over the moderately priced hotels in Menlo park. The room was large and nicely furnished. Although it was a room air conditioner unit, the operation was quiet and efficient. The staff was great! We checked in late...

This hotel is well located if you are to stay close to Stanford Univesity or Palo Alto companies. About 45' ride to SF but heavy traffic from 7am in the morning. Staff is nice and efficient. The rooms are a bit old furnished. There is a good restaurant next to the lobby available from 8.00AM for complimentary breakfast. Prices are...

I have stayed here twice for business because it is close to my Palo Alto office. The rooms are very clean and the bedding is superb. However, I paid $329 for my room this past week.

We were pleasantly surprised by our stay and will probably stay again in many subsequent stays to come. The room was comfortable, large and well appointed. The small kitchenette came in handy. We also found the deli to be a good source of food and munchies. The only big negative was a lunch we had at the restaurant Cibos. The...

This is a lovely property and some of the rooms are very nice but not all. I booked through Hotels.com and got a good price but that meant I got the worst room. A tower room with no view. This is a beautiful wooded property but my room looked out on cars and a street. I couldn't even see the...
