This quaint inn has beautiful court yards and relaxing environment. The pool is clean and well kept.The staff is friendly and very accommodating. Is centrally located between Great America and the San Francisco zoo. We will definitely stay here again.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 5 weeks ago via mobile

This is a beautiful hotel! I stayed here with my son while on a college visit to Stanford. They provided shuttle transportation to the school. The grounds are gorgeous, the staff is friendly, and the rooms are modern and clean.

Disappointed! When I looked at this property I thought it edged towards a more upscale hotel. It was quite the opposite. Although clean, the rooms appeared worn. Carpeting was worn and decor needed some updating. It appeared that there was some updating of the bathroom with a rain head shower and very plush bath towels. Could not find the hair...

I recognize this is a three star hotel but I was very disappointed with my experience, especially considering the price. Everything from the lobby to the grounds to my room felt old and rundown. There were stains on the towels, sheets and blankets. The room was dark and dank. The door closer setting was so tight that I had to...

April 17, 2017 Dear Michael M: Thank you so much for staying at the hotel and for taking the time to write a very candid and constructive review about the hotel. Similar to New York the cost of doing business in Palo Alto is extremely high and our rates are in par or below some of the hotels in the...

I stayed for about 4 nights at Creekside Inn. I was traveling from India and this was my first time in San Francisco. While I was there on business, it is a nice choice for vacation stay as well. It is quite near Stanford and hotel's shuttle service is quite convenient to get around a 5 mile radius. The stay...

Stayed here for 8 days while studying @ Stanford. All in all value for money. I booked a superior room and stayed in #315. I would not recommend this room, for it is directly located next to the elevator (and ice machine). This lead to quite some noise, also during nights. The room was clean and adequate, the bed was...

This was a stressful visit for us to the Bay Area. The team at Creekside Inn was kind, accomodating and professional. The room was clean, and nicely appointed with the necesary amenities. The bed was comfortable and the surroundings well lite. I highly recommend it.

I was pleasantly surprised by the Creekside Inn. I stayed there for a conference being held on the campus of Stanford University, which is about 3 miles away, and it was substantially cheaper than anything else in the area (in part due to a group rate deal). The grounds are lovely, and the rooms are comfortable and spacious. The room...
