It was a very pleasant stay at the Creekside Inn. Although the room was not luxurious, it was spacious, very clean and very quite. We really enjoyed sitting out on the patio surrounded by beautiful foliage. One advice I have is to offer better coffee in the reception area. It tasted so awful that I took one sip and had to throw it out. Also, offering some protein source, not just pastries for breakfast, would make the experience much better.

Horribly over priced. My rate was slightly over $500/night. Unfortunately, we had to book as no other options were available. We were not given the room we reserved online, 2 queens, and instead was placed in a small room with one king and was told this was what I had reserved. When I pointed out the two bed option had been $20 more, they quickly refunded that amount (indicating I had clearly reserved two beds and they had given the room away). This room was also placed in the very dingy back of the property with a dumpster in the parking area. Upon entering, I also discovered the sliding doors to the terrace had been unlocked. Checking in at night, this made me feel very uneasy. My daughter went to use a bath towel, and found some kind of organic waste on it (either a scab or a booger- your may be chuckling, but I'm really not kidding). This is no more than a fluffed up motor inn. Bathrobes don't help, especially when towels are soiled.

Room Tip: If you must stay here, do not stay in the back of the property.

Dear Jill F:

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback about the hotel, we are extremely disappointed for any inconvenience we caused to you and your daughter. We are reviewing your comments with our housekeeping staff for training purposes. The rates in Palo Alto are expensive especially for last minute bookings, our hotel continues to do improvements and we rely on our customers comments to guide our associates and our service. Hope you have a nice weekend and thank you again for your note.

Enjoyed my brief stay at this hotel. It's been upgraded since my last stay so the furniture and fixtures are all in great shape. Also very conveniently located to Stanford University. The place was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. Will stay again.

Room Tip: Room overlooking the courtyard are quieter

Great place to spend a weekend. The hotel is very clean, staff is very friendly and accommodating, and the hotel is quiet and close to a lot of things to do. My husband and I had a wonderful time and would stay there again.

I've been staying at the Creekside during a whole week for business in September 2018. Room was cosy, very clean and always well cleaned everyday. Bed are comfy and the room was silent (room 217). Breakfast is free and enough for a quick bite, for a complete one, go to the Cibo or the bakery on the other side of the road.

The hotel team is always smiling, very polite and always available. Parking is free.

Great hotel.

We were in Palo Alto for an appointment at Stanford Medical Center and needed a convenient place to stay one night. There are numerous old motels on El Camino Real that have barely been updated so the Creekside Inn was a pleasant surprise. There are several buildings on a rambling property which feels a bit more protected from the traffic of El Camino. Our room in the 2nd floor tower overlooked a side street close to traffic but was very quiet. The room was small but adequate, bed extremely comfortable and there was a mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker. This motel is a very good value for the area and we will likely return.

All things good about Creekside, cleanliness, location, restaurants, beds, etc., EXCEPT two things (1) the mirror in the bathroom is hung so low you have bend at your knees to shave (I am 6 ft 1). There is room to hang it higher, I reported it, but, it was ignored and probably the dumbest thing which is in the year 2017 Creekside has a cable/satellite provider BUT NO DIGITAL CHANNELS but they have flat screens. If you haven 't watched TV lately on analog channels, you have no idea how awful it is.
