This was a simple room in that it looked like the layout from a residence inn or other standard motel room. If it was, they have done some upgrades. The room was clean and in good condition. Bedding was nice. Shower was the best on my travels this year. Good quality bath products. There was a deli / convenience store...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Beautiful, serene multi-acre property 5 minutes from Stanford campus, hospital and children's hospital, Stanford Shopping Center, and great restaurants like the new Vina behind the Stanford barn. The outstanding service is pro, careful, hospitable, and accommodating, responsive. Be sure to make your reservations asap, because the Silicon Valley area is shockingly expensive and rates increase as vacancy drops. Creekside offers...

I've stayed in the Silicon Valley area for work many times, and I've never had a better experience. Staff was professional and welcoming, room was large and comfy (with a balcony!) gym was nicely appointed, and the wifi was speedy. I didn't use the car service, but it's a nice feature.

We had a wonderful stay for parents weekend. The hotel is close to campus, comfortable and clean rooms, plenty of free parking, wonderful staff and just a very comfortable place to stay. We can't wait to come back and use the pool and outdoor lounge area.

The staff are excellent and they are soooo helpful. I had lost luggage from my flight and they looked after the acceptance and informing of me with great kindness. They also have a great shuttle service and found me despite my not knowing where I was particularly well and only using email to find me. Rooms are fine, the aircon...

My sister and I stayed over the weekend to attend our niece's wedding in Palo Alto. Our room was big, with 2 double beds and a sitting area. The room was very clean and included a safe, microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker robes and slippers. The beds were comfortable and the towels fluffy. The balcony of our second floor room overlooked...

I first came up to Creekside on Business in the Fall and came back again this season it was such a good experience. Not only did I receive the same exceptional service, they bumped me up to the top floor, with a King bed, balcony, and infinity shower. I took two showers a day sometimes it was so good. There's...

Disappointed! When I looked at this property I thought it edged towards a more upscale hotel. It was quite the opposite. Although clean, the rooms appeared worn. Carpeting was worn and decor needed some updating. It appeared that there was some updating of the bathroom with a rain head shower and very plush bath towels. Could not find the hair...

I recognize this is a three star hotel but I was very disappointed with my experience, especially considering the price. Everything from the lobby to the grounds to my room felt old and rundown. There were stains on the towels, sheets and blankets. The room was dark and dank. The door closer setting was so tight that I had to...

April 17, 2017 Dear Michael M: Thank you so much for staying at the hotel and for taking the time to write a very candid and constructive review about the hotel.
