Nice hotel. Expensive, but then the area is.

Posted May 10, 2017
Pros: Good for the price in this area.
Location: Not much.
Not any place to walk to for food. Area is ok. This seems to be an older part of town.

Comfortable and close to everything!

Posted Mar 21, 2017
Pros: We love this hotel. Somehow it manages to be centrally located yet quiet and secluded. The food is excellent, the beds are great; ditto the baths.
Cons: Nothing!
Location: Close to Stanford University, two major shopping centers, the Caltrain station, downtown Palo Alto, and much more. Wonderful area!
We recently had a two night stay on a business trip, including our dog.

Nothing special. Needs new tub, lampshade.

Posted Mar 20, 2017
For the price, $200 a night, I expect far better. This was basically a $79-89 hotel room. Very basic. Breakfast pretty lame (corned beef hash I threw out and inedible eggs). One lampshade was damaged. Tub needs resurfacing or replacement. This was on the lower end of hotels in the area, so it's the location that drives the price. But it felt exceedingly overpriced for what I got. Also, dude next door smoked right outside our doors constantly, despite the No Smoking signs on every door.

Business Trip

Posted Feb 6, 2017 on Hotels
I just recently stayed at the Atherton Park Inn & Suites in Redwood City CA. It was a very comfortable hotel. It had a nice gym which I made use of. Location to the main freeways was very good and only a short distance to Menlo Park and Mountain View. If I was in the area again on business I would stay again.

Nice place to stay.

Posted Jan 27, 2017 on Hotels
I came to Sequoia Hospital for surgery. Needed a place to stay before and after. We chose Atherton based on the positive reviews. The room was the perfect size with nice amenities, frig, micro, good breakfast. On a very busy street but we didn't seem to notice the noise as we were back from the street. WIFI worked great. My only complaint is the smell coming from the sink when you turn on water and needed a bit more lighting. A little pricey but I found a great deal. Very clean and staff was terrific.
