I stayed at Atherton Inn for two nights in September 2012. I felt very comfortable and relaxed in the room I chose especially since it had a balcony and I could enjoy hearing the outdoor fountain as I read my book.

We echo the many positive reviews here. This is a beautiful B&B. Our room, the Chardonnay, was very large and the decorations lovely. Everything was in top condition -- nothing was "wearing" out -- the owners obviously maintain the building meticulously. There were so many extra little luxuries, too numerous to mention, like the overhead lighting in which could be... More

Stayed during the Salesforce.com conference due to lack of a room anywhere in the SF area and being from Europe originally, I have a great deal of experience with B&B's vs Hotels. B&B's usually do NOT allow you IN their kitchen to help yourself to their fresh fruit bowl ( !! ) M&M's, juices and milks, cereal selection anytime, and... More

Beautiful home, nicely appointed rooms with very clean bathroom. But we were very disappointed with the breakfast service. No one filled our coffee cups, that's up to you to do from a jug on a lazy susan. Breakfast was not attractive though the eggs were cooked nicely. Breakfast choices were boring.

Agree with all the other reviews. Outstanding B & B, Almost all amenities and comforts provided. These are really serious inn-keepers, and go all out to make their inn pleasant and their guests happy. Nice rooms and public quarters, and very good breakfast. Can't recommend the Atherton Inn too highly.

We loved everything about staying at the Atherton Inn and only wished the wifi internet had not been so sluggish, business people might find this annoying. We were there for a few days during our grandson's graduation and to visit family and felt perfectly comfortable and at home. Our room, The Chardonnay, was lovely with a balcony overlooking the garden... More

Made to order breakfast was delicious. And the bird was my best friend even though I usually don't like birds. Rooms are large & comfy; friendly innkeeper; not pretentious just overall a comfortable place to be when we visit our son

The whole experience was perfect from the confortable beds with their wonderful pillows to breadfasts that I can still taste! Just wish I was there longer so I could have had the waffles and pancakes, but I could not get past the french toast!!! Cinnimmon swirl and melt in your mouth with the perfect bacon and maple syrup.

We stayed for a week and could not have chosen a better place to stay. Tricia, who owns the property, welcomed us with open arms. It really was like home from home. The bed was divine and our room was extremely comfortable and well appointed. The breakfast was so delicious; cooked fresh to order. We will definitely be returning when... More

Absolutely wonderful! We have stayed at several in the Bay area and around the world. We stayed three nights, enjoyed the exceptionally comfortable bed, delicious breakfast, restaurant advice from the owners, fabulous location close to Palo Alto, Woodside, San Francisco, etc. We will definitely return again when we visit our new grandson and our daughter & her husband!
