I booked this motel directly, it costs $110+tax for a 2 double bed, and $120+tax for a queen bed with sitting area. This was my only stay in a non-franchised place in recent years, but the experience was one of the best. Clean rooms and higher end bathroom, which far exceeds 2-star motel standard. The location was great with easy public transportation and right on El Camino. This motel also has a very nice garden and big trees. The breakfast was good, they serve pre-packed pastry, good coffee, can juice, and fresh fruits. The owners I believe are an old couple, they seemed to have some attitude, but I know myself would be 10 times worse at their age, so it doesn't bother me at all. I highly recommend this motel.
- 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
