Gilroy, California
Reviewed 5 October 2015

I imagined it set near a little forest with a creek, but it is right on the main street, never saw the creek. The hallways are hardwood, and you enter the hall from the outside. 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...

nice hotel but definitely not worth the money. No help trying to figure out what building we were in. The grounds were beaufiful and nicely maintained but the hotel was 200 a night and for that price there should of atleast been a view etc.

This Inn was not at all what I expected. First of all, this place is huge. A four story building on one side of the property and two story buildings elsewhere. The grounds are very nice, the parking lot a great size for Palo Alto and a very good restaurant and deli also on the property. The room (on 4th...

This place was not too expensive for the area, appeared to be a well kept facility, and was very close to where I needed to be the next day so I decided to stay here with my wife and 2 daughters. The most disappointing part of our whole experience was getting settled in to the room. We arrive at our...

We arrived at the hotel at 2.30 PM expecting to be able to check in, relax and go to the poor on what was a very hot day. What we were told was that our room was not ready and to go to the deli (next door) and they would phone my cell phone when it was ready. At 4:30...

Hotels in Palo Alto are ridiculously expensive, so at $279/night this one would be considered mid-range. It has all the amenities, and it's quiet. The bathroom is small, as in Europe, but very usable. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Close to Stanford. However: 1) In the early morning (i.e., 6:15 AM), water was tan, and ran tan for ca....

I found this hotel to be nicely staffed and though on busy El Camino Real it was very quiet and quaint. The room was nicely furnished and the bed was comfortable. There were nice little patio areas to sit and have a drink and talk to friends.

Creekside Inn is a very comfortable hotel sorrounded by green, you sometimes forget you are by the side of El Camino Real. Comfortable beds and spacious rooms. Ammenities in the room make you feel welcome and being taken care of. Coffee and muffins in the morning is a excellent idea and a treat that is highly appreciated.
