“Love This B&B!!!!”
Reviewed 4 March 2008

I love this b&b, it's got a great location two blocks away from the downtown area, with its shops and restaurants. My room was huge, though there is a slight musty smell. The breakfasts are huge and excellent in quality, with this addictive organic yogurt, eggs, bread, coffees, teas, orange juice. It was absolutely delicious. The proprietor, Jorgy, was really helpful and friendly. They let me stash a bottle of wine in their fridge. I decided to return to Palo Alto in May and booked a room at the Cowper Inn. I don't intend to stay anywhere else while in Palo Alto.

Reviewed 13 August 2007

Very nice bed and breakfast, centrally located in Palo Alto. The proprietors go out of their ways to accommodate guests and are very friendly. Many rooms are very spacious, including several suites with a second, smaller bedroom or a sitting room, for which the rates are to the best of my knowledge no greater than that of a standard single room. In the annex there is a slightly musty smell but it is very tolerable. I recommend the Cowper to travelers to Palo Alto.
