Little slice of heaven

Posted Jul 23, 2017
I really liked this hotel. The employees at the front desk were very friendly and helpful. We got a King Supreme room. The room was spotless and you could smell a faint hint of bleach it just smelled clean! We had a little patio with chairs which was nice. The bed was very comfortable and had 4 large pillows. Also they give you bath sheets not skimpy little towels and they also give you lip balm. We will have to come back to go to Stanford hospital and this is where we will stay.

beautiful motel, truly creekside, with trees.

Posted Jul 19, 2017
Pros: Everything...location, condition, staff...
Cons: nothing
Location: near Stanford and good places in Palo Alto
Beautiful location, quiet and woodsy even though on El Camino, main road with traffic.

2-star hotel masquerading

Posted Jul 17, 2017
Pros: Ability to get a room at late notice
Dirty window screens. No place to conveniently hang towels. The shower drips, intermitently. Non-functional safe. No big deal, right? Well for the high price paid I definitely expected better. There were other things also, all somewhat minor, but it was annoyance after annoyance and disappointment after disappointment. Not just in cleanliness, but there's no place near the sink to hang a towel. Really? I kind of anticipate that folks who build hotels have used bathrooms before, and sinks, and towels.

Creekside Inn is a real find.

Especially liked the rain shower and the advanced electronic hookups. Convenient to Stanford.

Critique

Posted Jul 13, 2017
Pros: In addition to the above, the pool was nice, and parking was accommodating. The landscaping was very nice.
Location: Having the upscale restaurant attached was great. Stanford University was very close, and it's a beautiful campus.
Very nice room, comfortable bed. Shower was fantastic, with a "rain" shower head in the ceiling. I was on the fourth floor, but there was an elevator.. Outside patio for the continental breakfast was very nice. The adjoining restaurant was very good; served breakfast too. Of my 10-day trip, this was the best place I stayed at.

Paradise in Palo Alto

Posted Jul 11, 2017
Pros: In the middle of where we wanted to be with a wonderful oasis feel in the middle of asphalt and concrete.
Cons: Could have had water in the creek.
Location: Coin shops, Footlocker, not far from Stanford, close to St. Andrews Methodist church, and only two blocks from that amazing Fish Market restaurant.
You walk in to ferns, psalms, cross over a bridge, climb up to your room and balcony and enjoy the vista of the courtyard. Beds were firm, air conditioning amazing. Clean, neat, with all the amenities - including wifi, phone, TV, an i-pad full of information about the hotel, dining, etc. Free breakfast with coffee, doughnuts, and snails. The apple was delicious. Had a restful and relaxing time.

I'd stay there again

Posted Jul 8, 2017
As expected, the room was clean and comfortable. Love the rainfall showerhead! The attached restaurant was good. I didn't use the on-premise convenience store but it's nice that it's there. There's a Starbucks a few blocks away. I used u Uber to get around but there are bus stops close by.

Pros: Garden and parking
Cons: More choice for breakfast.
Location: Didn't get a chance to look around.
For the price we were paying, I think it was totally worth the price. The place is a little outdated but it was clean and I love the garden and the parking. I will definitely stay again if I travel to Northern CA.
