Peaceful, verdant refuge from the hustle and bustle of Silicon Valley

A gorgeous garden setting and water fountain welcome guests to this property along Matadero Creek. Inside, they find contemporary style and convenient amenities, such as a 24-hour fitness center, free wireless Internet and classic American food and drink from on-site Cibo Restaurant & Bar. A complimentary local shuttle service means many guests don't need a car, but free parking means no added costs for those who do.

Highlights:
  • Free high-speed wireless Internet access
  • Complimentary hybrid-car service between the hotel and locations within a 5-mile radius
  • Serene and picturesque location along Matadero Creek
Rooms:

The spacious rooms with contemporary decor and furnishings are outfitted with either one queen or two double beds and are all nonsmoking accommodations. Luxury linens, eco-friendly bath products and free high-speed wireless Internet access are standard amenities, while suites also have kitchenettes. Each room features a private patio that looks out over Creekside's lush garden property.

Features:

Guests can keep in shape with a workout in the 24-hour fitness center or a swim in the outdoor heated pool. In the mornings, coffee-and-tea service is available in the lobby, while evenings bring a complimentary wine reception. Classic American fare is served three times a day at the on-site restaurant and bar, Cibo, and is available via room service. Perhaps the best perk of all, though, is the free hybrid-car service that shuttles guests between the hotel and locations within a five-mile radius. Guest parking is free, too.

Weekend in Palo Alto

We thought this was a really nice place. It's quiet, and surprisingly wooded for being in the middle of town. Room was clean and comfortable. No complaints. We would definitely stay here again.

Stanford Medical Trip

Very convenient location for my needs. I like the extra sitting room with couch and coffee table to watch TV instead of watching it in bed. My sister comes with me when we stay so we always ask for two beds. Restaurant Cibo's has very good food and it is nice to not have to drive for meals. Thank you.

Great place to stay!

We have stayed here twice as we are in town for our Stanford Physician's Appointments. The hotel is very clean, so peaceful, staff is very nice and it's located very close to Stanford Hospital and Clinics. Rooms are very clean and modern. I will stay her more often!

Perfect Stay

Maybe it was the air, but my stay was perfect. The bed was great but what always takes it over the top for me are the chairs. The desk chair was very supportive and the side chair was very comfortable. Cannot remember the last time I could say that. This attention to comfort was matched in the rest of the room and in the bathroom. Plus complementary water and wifi. I will definitely stay here again.

Creekside Inn Review

Overall my stay here was good. But I was unhappy with the thin walls as I could hear the people walking around and talking above my room. The cleaning staff never came to clean our room when we even left the notice on the door to clean it. Shower was great as it was very modern!
