    Superb

    The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The room was very comfortable and well serviced. The general atmosphere was relaxed, safe and comfortable. The gardens were lovely. I also appreciated the coffee and pastries in the morning! For Palo Alto, which is an exceptionally expensive place to visit or live in, the Creekside Inn was good value for money.

    Superb

    A very relaxing facility with lots of trees. The coffee and pastries were excellent. It was walking distance to many places to eat.

    I was attending a conference that included a Saturday (as most conference do). I was disappointed that shuttle service to Stanford University was not available until 9 AM on weekends, as my meetings started at 8 AM. I can understand later service for Sunday, but Saturday is still considered a workday for many business travelers.

    Superb

    The hotel was clean, comfortable and quiet. Staff was efficient. The room was nicely furnished. Restaurants were within walking distance. The hotel was also close to Stanford Hospital--the reason why we were in town.

    Bathroom was small and cramped. Facility was a bit pricey, but the conveniences made it okay.

    The babbling brook. Great little view from the patio of the creek.

    Superb

    I was surprised when I opened the door to my room because I think I had expected something of an "inn" subconciously. No, It was a complete luxury hotel. Besides the view was beautiful and silent. I liked the terrace. Comparing to my current hotel room which is located in the downtown Seattle and all other hotels in various countries, The Creeckside Inn was the best hotel I've ever experiened. Good job. (and the iPhone cradle/speaker was good too!)
