Nova Lima, MG
Reviewed 8 September 2015

The hotel is simple but very convenient for short business trips to the bay area. Parking is free. Rooms are reasonably comfortable. I had business appointments at Stanford so this was a very convenient place for me to stay. The only problem is that it took way too long for the room to become available.

Charged over twice what the internet search rate stated--296! Arrived between 10 and 11pm at night, and my husband is not well. No AAA discount nor AARP discount, though both discounts were acknowledged by the front desk guy when checked in. And, place was not full. Three guys at the front desk rude and intimidating. Bed was very uncomfortable, springs...

We spent 3 nights, for 2 adults and 4 children. The hotel is organised like a Motel, with each room opening outside. Convenient parking. Rooms are fairly small and with 3 of us in each room, space was tight and bathroom as well. Staff was mostly Spanish speaking but reasonably friendly and efficient. Good things are free WiFi, free coffee...

Very nice staff. Clean rooms but no water in creek due to drought. Mosley an inn for dropping of students for college. Nothing else really. Great staff and very helpful. Free shuttle to down town which is great.

Very clean, new bath, beautiful grounds and lots of places to eat near by. There is a deli/market on the grounds with good sandwiches, a restaurant and laundry room. Didn't hear noise from rooms around us. I'd definitely stay there again and recommend to my family and friends.

This is a nice place with comfortable, very clean rooms and great service. I was here for just 2 nights but felt very welcome by the staff. Not a lot of decent food options nearby but the hotel restaurant offers decent food. I didn't try the pool or fitness room, will try them out next time I'm back.

Actually only went here because there was a deal and the alternatives were expensive, but I'll go there next time by choice. Quality of the room was high, clean and modern, computers that let me check in for my flight, complimentary morning coffee & danish regardless of whether you're having breakfast there. Ample parking, nice & quiet. Good hotel.

Loved everything about Creekside and will stay again if going to a show at Shoreline. I loved the view of the creek from my room and the balcony over looking the creek. The market was just a few steps from the lobby so I was able to purchase a bottle of wine (thank you for providing a wine opener)!. Love...

All you need is here at Creekside Inn. Quiet, Comfort, Convenient and All. Staffs are always more than welcome attitude to make your visit happier. "Inn" makes you feel unsure about the grade of the property? No worries, you just find out much more than you expect.
