                        It was quiet at night.

                        It is an older hotel, and it has a musty smell in the rooms. I felt it was overpriced; it also looks nothing like the photos on their website. The complimentary breakfast is sad, just a few store-bought muffins from a grocery store. I will not stay here again.

                        The upgrade to the Suite was great, I will be back.

                        Nothing - it was excellent.

                        The staff are friendly and polite. The location is good. Free Wi Fi and parking are available. My room is spacious and nicely decorated. Each room has a balcony and many of them are facing to the creek. Quiet and relaxing to have breakfast there. The coined washing machines and snack shop is helpful for guests who have a longer stay. I will use the Creekside Inn if I go to Palo Alto again.

                        The complimentary wine

                        The bed was hard and the room smelled moldy. It was too expensive.

                        Close to shopping and everything else in Palo Alto. Room was clean and comfortible.

                        Friendlier staff and better complimentary breakfast. All they had was complimentary coffee. I checked out at 06:15 am. Clark said i can't have the complimentary coffee because i was 15 minutes early!!! Whatever. Bad guess service.

                        Closeness to the Economics Department, Stanford, and decent restaurants within walking distance. We had a car but prefer walking and public transportation when possible. I.e., to get to Sanford one can take the 22 bus to Galvez and El Camino and take the Marguerite from there to the Economics Department.

                        I liked the location, nice creek on the territory of hotel and free shuttle that I could take to my company's office. Cibo restaurant close to hotel is OK.

                        Room is spacious, but nothing fancy, seems an ordinary hotel. Nothing much around. Complimentary shuttle may be overbooked (they only have 2 cars), I had a situation that when I was 7 minutes late for the booked shuttle, they told me aI can't use it any more as now it will be late for some other hotel visitors -- what kind of customer experience is this?.. And it's not cheap at all for the level of service they provide -- so expensive just because of location (close to Stanford and Silicone Valley companies).

                        The coffee

                        Our reservation wasn't there when we arrived. There was only one person working the front desk on an extremely busy weekend. Very small shower and bathroom.

                        good location, spacious and comfortable room.

                        had to change from an inner room where there was no wifi reception and no cellular reception to a second floor external room where both wifi and cellular had good reception.

                        The hotel staff is excellent. In the building where we stayed there is an elevator to the upper floors. Plenty of parking space. Free Wi-Fi.

                        The room design is rather inconvenient: there is little space between the furniture, the windows are hard to open, sound isolation between different floors is insufficient (when a tenant is walking in the room above you hear it clearly - though in the general the hotel is fairly quiet).

                        The location was close to Standford and family

                        The evening check-in clerk wasn't welcoming. Our arrival obviously wasn't convenient for her. Our room smelled musty upon arrival as well.

                        Its location. Basically clean, etc.

                        Price is kind of on the high side. If you don't have to be here specifically, you might do better around the San Mateo Airport, etc.
