Stayed at this hotel for two nights during a recent visit to the south of the bay area. Overall, I recommend this hotel to anyone visiting this part of the bay if you are looking to avoid some of the traffic. The hotel offers free parking, and everything in my experience was perfect. Rooms and bathrooms were very clean, beds... More

I recently stayed here for a meeting. This hotel was fantastic. Fast internet, comfortable beds, excellent staff and overall a great experience. If you are traveling to Palo Alto or Silicon Valley...this is the hotel you need to stay at. The general manager and her team are excellent.

I recently stayed here for two nights during a business trip to Palo Alto. Like most hotels in the Palo Alto area, this isn't the newest property around, but they have done a nice job making this look and feel like a Courtyard Hotel. The staff was polite and had some good restaurant suggestions. For the record, there are several... More

extremely quiet -immaculate, super comfortable beds, fast internet, fully kitted out kitchen, helpful and cheerful staff. lovely courtyard - nice for relaxing in - gym empty whenever i needed it, ample convenient free parking. and even a nice place for smokers to indulge in their filthy habit. something for everyone.

The Courtyard in Los Altos is very clean and welcoming. The rooms are large and the beds are super comfortable. The hotel offers an inviting lobby with a fireplace and bar. The hotel surrounds a beautiful courtyard that hosts the swimming pool, hot tubs, cozy sofas and granite table with fire pits. The exercise room is also nice and is... More

Stayed one night at the CMPALA. Location is great on El Camino, near Page Mill and plenty of restaurants. Rooms are large and comfortable with a good sized bathroom. Checkin was friendly and a breeze. Loved the free wifi and free gated parking with dual elevator access to the guest rooms. Really no complaints, would stay here again.

Covenant location, and ample sub terrain parking. Check-in was breeze and the staff was polite and helpful. Arrived into a king bed room overlooking the nicely landscaped courtyard.

We chose the Courtyard to be our base for a week of wandering and jazz at the Stanford Jazz Fest & Workshop. This was a home run location and service team - only diminished by somewhat noisy ac units in the rooms. But who cares - we could get to Stanford for music in 15-20 minutes despite on-campus construction. El... More

There are a bunch of "cheap" hotels on El Camino. Of course they are not actually cheap because it's Palo Alto. But this is one of the better ones. Good service, clean room, free Internet, decent cafe on premises, free parking. I booked via Priceline. Overall, a good experience for a convenient business hotel.
