Creekside Inn - A Greystone Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Need to spend one night in Palo Alto, chose Creekside Inn for its location and convenience. Hotel itself is just functional and for $150 on Friday, I think it's a little overpriced.

It was quiet and beautiful. It was close to everything yet not over populated. It was a wonderful experience.

The hotel is very accommodating with all the facilities needed to make your visit enjoyable. The staff are helpful and the location is ideal.

Breakfast was a little sparse. Just some pastries... other than that, great!

The room was comfortable and clean, without any "old hotel" smell. The exercise room was likewise clean and spacious. It's not within walking distance of downtown Palo Alto, but it's only a few minutes away by car. It's also relatively easy to access hwy 101 and 280 from the hotel.

Good location, quiet residential area, pretty grounds. Good for families

The rooms are fresh, spotless, and tastefully appointed.

Very clean, comfortable and quiet. Suite was very spacious with well designed. Regular room also very nice. Staff was friendly. Lots of greenery so no reason to think we were in the city. Got a great price!

This is second time to stay. We will come back next year again.

Our room faced the parking lot so the view wasn't great and there was street noise.

Reserved only one night on orbitz. Very clean and comfortable. Loved the atmosphere so decided to stay another night. Highly recommend!!!

The stay was awesome. Very convenient from the University.

Close to Stanford campus and many other conveniences. Very quiet.

We stay here often. We visit our children,and this is our place of choice

Arrived late. Barely was given time of day by night clerk. Was given a room on far edge of property where you need to walk thru a gate into parking lot to find it. No directions and poor signage. Room was classic 1970's motel. (which is what this place is) Living on the fact that Palo Alto has old properties and we keep them full since there is no other game in town!

It was great..... Will return It was older but renovated and clean

Nice rooms, friendly staff, little bit on the expensive side. The most appreciated was a free shuttle within the 5-mile radius from the hotel (which includes Stanford campus).

Great location clean hotel stuff were pleasant and overall i would stay there again

I loved the location of the hotel, staff was friendly and the place was spotless. My only recommendation would be upgrade the beds. They felt like something from my kids rooms. However, I slept very well, so they worked for me.

The grounds are beautiful, and my room was excellent. Even though we were a few doors down, you could hear the door slam every time someone went through it. When the neighbor went in or out of their room! Nicely decorated and comfortable queen, but not quite as nice as I had hoped.
