Reviewed 12 November 2016

Chose the Inn as a place to stay for a Menlo College class reunion on advice of friends. And, were they ever right! Let's start with Krystle who took my phone reservation which involved some specific requests. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and businesslike... including a cell message to me on day of arrival that room was ready for occupancy (which...

A bit disappointing. Apparently had a revamp but air conditioning noisy and not effective at all. Enough space and clean but remains dated. Location very central though. We were in time for breakfast but arrived towards the end of the time slot. Concierge got the hump when we asked for yoghurt and milk which were both in short supply. Not...

I'd actually rate this roadside motel a 3 out of 5 if it weren't so expensive. Sadly, prices are in excess of $300/night, so my expectations increase with that. The pros: the bed was comfortable enough though the noise from the road is extensive. There is a very basic free breakfast (oatmeal, toast/bagels, and hard boiled eggs). The fine: The...

Comfortable rooms, great customer service, and extra amenities all at a reasonable rate make this little hotel quite the find on the San Francisco peninsula...conveniently located near Stanford University.

Nice room and amenities (breakfast included, wine hour some days). Great location to walk to shopping, restaurants, etc. My main complaint is that it is on a busy street and it was noisy all day and night.

We had a fantastic experience (sorry to hear about the others) - the front desk was welcoming and had perfect recommendations for places to eat, the room was immaculate and well tended, the evening was quiet, breakfast was fresh, healthy and filling (and we met some brilliant and kind German guests), and most impressive of all - they called me...

The front desk guy was weird and not professional. The room looked nice and comfortable, but they had sprayed heavy perfume on the bedding which I hate. I have asthma and it makes for a very unpleasant sleep. The shower head is to big for people with thick long hair. You can't get clean. The toilet was broke and had...

Pros: Friendly, welcoming staff. Great breakfast, with options including greek yogurt, oatmeal, bagels, eggs etc. Rooms are fairly large, clean and in good condition, everything works. Convenient location right in the middle of Silicon Valley, just a couple of miles from Stanford. It's also a short walk away from downtown MP - which, while not exactly exciting, certainly has enough...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In a region renowned for razor-sharp venture capital firms and a generous dose of Stanford-style intellectual innovation, the Menlo Park Inn carves a decidedly unique niche - a sleek, utterly stylish inn that makes all-star service its top priority. Sure, our guests love our easy, under-two-mile access to Palo Alto, but what really makes them smile? We think it's the sweet smell of fresh-baked cookies. It's an Xperience you'll never forget. ... more   less
