I stayed at the Red Cottage Inn for five days of business all over the Bay area (south bay, east bay, San Francisco). I was in a standard queen room and it was clean, lovely ambience (view out onto the pool courtyard), and well equipped. The bed was comfortable and although the cover was dirty when I arrived, the hotel...

Stayed on a Sunday night, paid $127 including tax for King bed in the single story building. The place was charming, clean, and quiet. Located at the edge of Menlo Park and Atherton. The motel sits off the El Camino Real a bit, and is close the the railway line, but we never heard any traffic or train noise. The...

The only thing I didn't like is chairs. It was a little bit uncomfortable when I tried to do some tasks on my laptop. Please, make it higher! Everything else is excellent, nice rooms (exactly as on their photos) and friendly stuff.

Service was friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean. We had cocktails beside the pool even though it was cool out. There is a great liquior store within walking distance. It is a quick drive to a Safeway.

This is a great motel-like place to stay, located away from El Camino Real (quiet!). Rooms are nice and very clean. Staff is very helpful. Go for the second floor rooms in the main building, if available; there's even a small patio overlooking the pool. A few restaurants are within walking distance; for more choices (in Menlo Park and Palo...

Very conveniently located to Stanford. As others have said, the hotel is quiet, clean, and sweet. Loved the patio, even though it was too cold to sit outside. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The fridge, microwave, and deluxe coffee maker were an added benefit. Highly recommend.

We had a nice stay at the Red Cottage Inn & Suites. Their location was not far off Hwy 101and very convenient. The facilities are updated and clean. There is a small but nice fitness room and a pool. The free continental breakfast was decent and the staff are friendly and helpful. I will definitely stay here again on my...

We stayed here 2 nights during some medical tests at Stanford Cancer Ctr. The rooms were very large, the bed was excellent, nice linens, almost as good as ours at home, we felt comfy here..a home away from home. Bathroom clean along with clean carpets, no weird smell. It is not a fancy place but is an older hotel that...

The staff at the Red Cottage Inn are the best! My husband was staying there on business when he got a severe case of food poisoning from a local restaurant. The staff brought him supplies of bland food, drink, extra blankets, even Tylenol. They even offered to bring him kimchee soup and run out for him if he needed anything....

This is a top notch three star hotel. It's nothing fancy but the rooms are very nice and well maintained, are a decent size, have an excellent coffee service, fridge, microwave, comfy bed with nice linens, decent TV, and outdoor patio. We found the rooms to be quiet and did not hear traffic or the light rail a few other...
