“Great!!!”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Nice experience, would stay there again, not a 5 star hotel but certainly one of the best you will find in the area, would recommend.

VERY CLEAN

VERY FRIENDLY STAFF

A+

They put the AC right under curtains, so if you plan to use it you may not have privacy.

If you are taller than 5 10 you will hit your head on the shower everytime, tiny clearance.

otherwise Super clean and friendly.

Green Features: Lot of recyclables if your into that, pretty cool.

Good things first: The reception staff is great, very friendly, efficient and very helpful!

One cannot say that about the cleaning staff though, which ignored "do not disturb signs" and dirt equally. The check out receptionist apologized for that though and gave me a cut on the rate, which was very much appreciated, but I would have preferred a clean room.

The hotel is basically a spruced up old motel and might be THE place to stay when you are visiting nearby Stanford university, but for a business trip I didn't find it particularly suitable.

Room Tip: ask for a room to the back of the property away from the street

Green Features: plus point for the hotel - only the towels on the floor were removed and the ones on the rack actually stayed on the rack, which I hardly ever find even if hotels promote their environment pracies

Dear 2Hippos,
We would like to thank you for taking the time to let us know about your visit to the hotel. Thank you for mentioning our friendly and helpful reception staff and we're glad to read that you found our hotel to be "THE" hotel for visiting nearby Stanford University. We are disappointed to read that our housekeeping department failed to observe the house rules regarding the Do Not Disturb sign and we will be sure to address your comments with our staff. We are glad that we were able to make up for this shortfall during the check-out process. We look forward to your next visit to the hotel.

Sincerely,
Luis Carreno
General Manager

This is really a beautiful hotel! The room allows to work (there is free internet access and a large desk), has a refrigerator, TV, a nice arm chair, a terrace, enough storage for more than you will probably carry with you. The view from the terrace to the creek and all the trees and flowers is delightful! Everything is nicely decorated in a kind of Japanese style with laterns and little water places, a wooden bridge and a wind chime. A peaceful and enjoyable place!
There is a gym and a pool. There is also a laundry service for the guests and a store with almost everything for everyday life. Over the street, there is a bakery and a bit further an excellent Indian restaurant. The hotel also has a restaurant which offers free wine testing.
The personnel is helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: terrace to the creek, e.g., 117 -- 114

Due to a crazy work "crisis" I needed a nearby place for just a few hours sleep before I had to get back to work. I got the lowest rate on the Creekside website for a tower room, and happily was upgraded when I checked in. The Front Desk staff was very perceptive as to what I really needed. The room was in the back, was amazingly quiet, and beautifully furnished with high quality linens, a wonderful bed and lots of pillows. I would recommend, and book again should the need arise.

Stayed here on a Saturday night by using Hotel Tonight and got a great deal (sorry Creekside).
They have really made an effort to turn a motel into something else....big rooms, comfy beds, plenty of parking, nice bath products. A glitch in my reservation was taken care of by the caring front desk-thanks!

We were here for a rugby event at Stanford and wanted accommodations that were clean, cheap and convenient. We got a good rate through Orbitz and a nice room in the tower building. The free coffee was good and there is a convenience store/deli on site. It was too chilly for the pool but it looked nice and kids seemed to enjoy it. One thing we noticed about our east-facing room was that it was warm in the morning--you may need the A/C in the summer months. Overall, just what we wanted for this quick trip.

We chose the Creekside Inn for our family and friends for our wedding weekend due to the location and willingness of the staff to work with our budgets. Our expectations were far surpassed due to the great service and the beautiful and peaceful setting. We could not have been happier with our stay at the Creekside and our friends and family raved about our choice of hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a ground floor room with a patio that faces the inner, fountain garden.
