Our daughter told us about this place, rating it highly. It's a great little place. Clean. Friendly. Beautiful little gardens and pool area. Couldn't have asked for anything better. Great quality for a reasonable price.

Like other reviewers stated, the front desk staff has very bad customer service. If you make any special requests, they will treat you like you are from another planet. I asked for a microwave in the room and they said normally they do not have microwaves unless it is an upgrade/premium room, but they will try. One was not installed...

This place is clean, quiet and well maintained. The bus stops right in front on El Camino Real and it is within walking distance of stores and shops. The staff is friendly and responsive. I have stayed in several places in Palo Alto, always looking for a good price, and this is by far the best.

My wife recently survived a near death coma. This was to be her first outing to see our niece graduate from Stanford. We called ahead to explain her need to avoid strong odors and disinfectants which can cause her to have seizures. When we arrived we asked if we could just check the room out to avoid any problems. We...

The general consuls on this board regarding decent clean rooms and a good location are accurate. I personally do not have any trouble with the AC. The reviews on staff are also correct. Both folks working in the front office are oddly rude. Upon check in I was sternly lectured about not parking in certain spots. But most strange was...

The Country Inn is reasonably priced and is very very clean. I have stayed with my family at this motel twice and have never been dissapointed. The staff at the hotel is great and very helpful. Once again I have to say this hotel is very clean.

During a convention week in Palo Alto with hotel rooms scarce, we desperately needed a hotel room during our grandson's surgery.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Palo Alto Country Inn was built in 1954 along the El Camino Real, the main thoroughfare of that time. Shaded by large trees and surrounded by orchards, travelers would stay here when visiting Stanford University or the city of San Francisco. Founded by Italian immigrants, the Cesano family took care to provide excellent service, and clean, well-maintained rooms for their guests. Many became good friends as they made the Country Inn their home away from home. Today, the inn lies at the heart of a busy Silicon Valley. Destinations such as Google, Yahoo, Apple, Stanford and many Bay Area attractions are within easy reach. Although the surroundings may have changed, the Cesano children and grandchildren have carried on the traditions of providing an affordable and comfortable place to stay. The staff and the accommodations continue to earn the trust of returning clientele and the rave reviews of new visitors. Some special features of the Country Inn are the lovely garden patio that greets you as you arrive, the pool area with available barbeques and ample patio furniture, rooms with kitchens, free wi-fi, and consistently friendly service. At the Country Inn you will find all of the modern conveniences as well as enjoy the warmth and welcome of a quaint inn of days gone by. Please consider us as your hosts on your next trip to the San Francisco Bay Area. ... more   less
