I grew up in Palo Alto and never noticed this little place until I had to travel back for business and realize there's not much hotel options in PA. The other places were all full so I tried Creekside Inn. It's an older building(s) nestled against a real creek. The rooms were great. Clean, updated bathrooms, plush bedding. I didn't...

The Creekside Inn does not look like much from the street. It is on a busy street (El Camino Real). The property consists of 8 separate buildings, most of which have exterior hallways. The buildings more-or-less surround the Inn's parking lot and small but usable swimming pool. The room I stayed in, 259, was reached by an interior hallway that...

This is a very good and convenient place, if you are on business near by. The place is spacious and clean. Staff is friendly and they have a little pool. All good. Just do not expect a lot of charm or individuality.

This is a pretty reasonably-priced very convenient full-service hotel just a 5-minute drive down flashy Camino Real to Stanford University's impressive front door entrance. The attached restaurant and bar provide food/beverages but don't overlook the full-service deli market - nice people sell made-to-order sandwiches as well as cold wine & beer take-away! And I even found super glue for an...

Room with a porch overlooking trees and the creek. Peaceful, quiet, comfortable with a touch of luxury. Great bed. Adjoining restaurant, Cibo's, is very good, also quiet, with attentive service. We've stayed here repeatedly, and would again.

Stayed at Creekside while visiting Stanford. Received a nice clean room. The balcony was an unexpected bonus. The market and sandwich shop across the parking lot had excellent sandwiches and we even picked up a bottle of wine for the room. Somewhat pricier than I prefer, but will definitely look here for future stays.

The hotel is a bit of country in the bustling city. Nice grounds with seasonal creek coursing through. The restaurant is great for a convenient and tasty meal. We've stayed there while attending a conference every fall for 10 years and never had a problem. This year, there was some confusion with our reservations. It's easy to provide great customer...

Reviewed 8 October 2015

Friendly service, the room was clean, internet worked, shower tepid, complementary breakfast of coffee and pastry provided. Reasonably priced meeting room. Billing was chaotic for our group and the hotel was unable to sort out the mess, which was very annoying. Had to settle up with one of my colleagues later!

Probably the highlight of this hotel was the landscaping. The room was fine. The big disappointment was the shower water temperature. It was tepid at best, and when you are expecting a hot shower, that's a pretty big deal. We spoke to another couple who had the same issue. We reported it to the front desk, and again at checkout....
