My husband and I are both 76, from WA State, who are former owners of a 16 room hotel that was build in 1937, so we really admired what the owners of the Country Inn have done to keep a period motel up to date. Although the motel is located on El Camino, a major thoroughfare, the park like front garden with hugh trees make El Camino disappear and the new windows keep out the traffic noise. There is cable TV, free WiFi, A/C, fenced in pool area, BBQs available, lawn furniture in the front garden, free off-street parking, it is pristinely clean and there is hardly a dead flower on the many rose bushes around the pool. We loved the place and the price, which is right!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Palo Alto Country Inn was built in 1954 along the El Camino Real, the main thoroughfare of that time. Shaded by large trees and surrounded by orchards, travelers would stay here when visiting Stanford University or the city of San Francisco. Founded by Italian immigrants, the Cesano family took care to provide excellent service, and clean, well-maintained rooms for their guests. Many became good friends as they made the Country Inn their home away from home. Today, the inn lies at the heart of a busy Silicon Valley. Destinations such as Google, Yahoo, Apple, Stanford and many Bay Area attractions are within easy reach. Although the surroundings may have changed, the Cesano children and grandchildren have carried on the traditions of providing an affordable and comfortable place to stay. The staff and the accommodations continue to earn the trust of returning clientele and the rave reviews of new visitors. Some special features of the Country Inn are the lovely garden patio that greets you as you arrive, the pool area with available barbeques and ample patio furniture, rooms with kitchens, free wi-fi, and consistently friendly service. At the Country Inn you will find all of the modern conveniences as well as enjoy the warmth and welcome of a quaint inn of days gone by. Please consider us as your hosts on your next trip to the San Francisco Bay Area. ... more less
