We/ve stayed in Palo Alto many times; this was the first time at Creekside Inn and it won't be the last. The grounds are beautiful and have many shady patios. The room had all the amenities that frequent travelers expect, plus a peaceful balcony that overlooked the oak trees (with their resident squirrels) and the creek. The hardworking restaurant staff...

Having just stayed at another hotel in the same group, this hotel did not gave the same level of personal service but this was probably due to its size. Our room was a good size with a balcony which got the morning sun, took a bit of working out how to open the door but we managed! The grounds are...

I stayed here for business and it was a great choice. For the price, you get what you pay for... which is to say, a lot. It's a hotel clearly designed and priced for business travelers or well-off parents of Stanford students. The room was clean, updated, and with great amenities. I stayed in a room that had a view...

We found our stay to be very comfortable. We called while on the road the day of check in to request an early check in and were accommodated. The room was very comfortable and well located. The adjacent deli and restaurant were handy, and the lobby coffee better than a Hampton Inn.

Nothing special but a very good value relative to other business quality hotels in area. Room was small but well appointed. Did not like the outside stairs and elevator (felt motel like) but the rooms themselves are secured by inside entrances. Staff were nice and efficient. Free wifi was fast and easy to connect. Location was convenient to Palo Alto...

Ihe hotel is on a quiet nicely landscaped property close to Stanford University. Room was large and the bed comfortable. The bathroom amenities, shower and towels all nicer than your average chain hotel. Only disappointment was that we were looking forward to the advertised evening's complimentary wine after a long drive from L.A. only to be told the restaurant was...

Found this hotel on the Internet. Attended Shoreline Amphitheater and this hotel is fairly close. What I loved about this hotel was that I felt I was in the country but still in the city. The grounds are beautiful. We were so relaxed. Didn't take in the pool this time. Rooms are very nice. Patio or balcony. Will definately go...

My sister and I rated the Creekside a 8.5 on the scale of 1-10 (10 being best). We had a wonderful stay over Memorial Day weekend, and enjoyed a spectacular deal on room rates (must not have been any special events). Service was excellent, and the amenities were special and appreciated. We had 2 different rooms (one on the dry...
