I am a business woman traveling alone. Personally I am not much in favour of hotels where your room door opens on the outside, in my case on the parking lot. But the Creekside Inn is a very nice place, it felt comfortable, and safe, a small haven in this busy area. The value is good for the price you...

This hotel is a real find. It advertises itself as a hideaway in the city, and the photos show the rooms nestled in trees by an ACTUAL creek....and we were expecting something less. But it really is landscaped to give the feeling of being in the woods by a creek! The staff was friendly and efficient. The rooms were spacious,...

We were upgraded to a double queen room at no cost, which was very nice. I was amazed at how big the property was and how many buildings there were (8 I believe). Considering how big the property was, it was very quiet. Rooms were very clean, our beds were very comfortable; we never heard anyone above or beside us...

I recently stayed at the Creekside Inn in Palo Alto, located right off the busy El Camino Real. Despite the unrelenting traffic out front, Creekside Inn provides a natural sanctuary on its campus. Silicon Valley hotel prices are outrageous, but the Creekside Inn does offer a bit of a respite. I had a queen bed in a small room in...

Hotels in Silicon Valley are just ridiculously expensive, period. Anyone who travels here regularly for business knows this, so you have to adjust your standards downwards accordingly. Hotels are frequently sold out, so you just kind of have to accept what you are given unless you want to spend $650+ a night. That said, I had a good experience at...

Lovely wooded complex tucked away in the middle of Palo Alto. Convenient walking distance from a reasonable amount of food choices, and free shuttle to Stanford makes it my hotel of choice when visiting there. I've stayed in at least 3 different buildings, all with lovely rooms. I have had a couple problems with the shuttle, but they were always...

Stay at this hotel whenever making business trip to Palo Alto. Good location at the middle of Silicon Valley, but quiet environment. Hotel itself is a bit old, but continue renovating to update.

So, I travel for work, and have a budget, and am a pretty low mainteance traveler. I want a clean room, safe hotel, and that is about it. But this one of the worst places I have ever stayed.

Dear Heather, Although we are extremely disappointed about your recent experience at our hotel, we do appreciate the time taken to express your concerns. Please be assured that our air conditioners are cleaned daily and our rooms are certainly not mold filled as we frequently host hospital guests from Stanford.
