I stayed two nights at this hotel having been to Palo Alto maybe 60 times over the past 20 years. The rates for hotels/motels for weekday nights is outrageous so I stayed at the Comfort Inn because it was only $315 per night. At these rates, I have basic expectations. The room is shabby at best. There was a spider...

Beware the cancellation policy. My daughter booked this hotel and even though she tried to cancel the reservation more than a week before when the event was postponed, she was told it was non-refundable and was charged the full amount of her two night stay.

Thank G N
DeniseWallace610, General Manager at Comfort Inn Palo Alto, responded to this review

Dear G N, I apologize that the hotel was unable to waive the penalty on your daughter's prepaid non-refundable/No cancel reservation. The discount on these types of reservations is substantial. The risk is sometimes not worth the savings, as the penalty is 100% as noted on the confirmation. The hotel's cancellation policy on typical reservations is 24 hours prior to...

Stayed a good 7 nights at the inn. Friendly staff and meticulous housekeeping. Very satisfied with the cleanliness in the cleaning. Will come back again. Keep up the good service! Definitely a good place for 'Rested. Set. Go'.

Although they charge $20 extra for the pooch, they provide a doggy grassy area at the back of the motel! Very well located, no frills place at an unheard-of reasonable price for this area. Nice breakfast and super friendly staff.

Stayed here overnight on a business trip. Rooms were functional, a bit darkly lit and somewhat tired in furnishings and overall appearance but for the most part clean. Wifi was free, and the speed was adequate for my needs. TV had quite a number of channels. Heating/cooling was a wall mounted unit that didn't generate too much noise when working....

Not a lot to recommend this place, beyond the fact that it's somewhat less expensive than other (overpriced!) hotels in the area. Our room was noisy (no weather-stripping on the door meant we could see light streaming through the crack), we didn't have thin inside curtains, only thick ones (other rooms had both), and the water flow in the shower...

In this high tech area with very expensive hotels, I was glad that I found a real bargain in the Comfort Inn. Room was cheaper and better than my meals in the area. Good breakfast with eggs and sausage every morning. Try it, I don't think you'll regret it. It's an older style motel, but has been well kept and...

The room was clean with good accommodations. The motel is quiet ant the price reasonable/ The wifi is good and the breakfast is more than correct. It's close to the Standford campus if you want to visit it.

Had an great experience staying here, after moving around in different motel/hotels in bay area we stumbled across this one, and the staff was so nice! When we had an issue it was fixed straight away. Such as the unexpected breakfast that was served every morning was over my expectations.

We only spent one night at this older motel, which had been extensively rehabbed. Although burdened by the old catwalk design and no pool, we were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and size of our room. We were "upgraded" to a handicapped room, which was quite nice. Breakfast was another fine amenity, with a selection of hot scrambled eggs and...
