Atherton Park Inn & Suites Redwood City
Ranked #5 of 17 Hotels in Redwood City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 February 2014

We attend a Valentine's Day concert in Redwood City every year. This is the first Redwood City hotel we feel good about giving our recommendation. We have stayed at 10 other Redwood City hotels, of all price levels, and this is the best service, and best value. Good room, free breakfast, quiet, great service, free parking, and we will stick with this one next year as well.

I recently had to visit on of my agency's offices in Menlo Park. The hotel prices in this Silicone Valley area of California are extremely high, and more than my agency will allow me to pay. We found the Atherton Park to be a reasonable alternative. It is the motel-style of hotel, where every room opens on to the parking lot; this makes it hard to overcome the noise of El Camino and the train overnight. This limitation makes it hard for me to rate it higher. However, the room was reasonably spacious, the bed was firm, the room was very clean, and they provided modern toiletries. The hot breakfast in the morning offered some reasonable alternatives to start the day, including eggs, biscuits, good coffee, and cold selections, as well. If I cannot stay in one of the standard chains in the future, the Atherton Park is a good alternative.

Room Tip: Ask to stay far from the street, El Camino Real.

The room we stayed in was clean and bed comfortable.
the carpets looked worn and maybe should replaced. We were in the front part of hotel which was noisy due to traffic on El Comino. Like many hotels it was noisy from interior rooms and ceiling above. My mistake is that I should have asked for 2 floor in the back of hotel to get away from traffic noise.
The disappointment is that the hot tub was closed so they The hotel staff was friendly and morning breakfast buffet has good selection of roll, some premade omelets and choice of cold cereals

For any Orwell-lovers out there I can confirm that Room 101 is your worst nightmare: certainly at the Atherton. Of course in this area of mostly-dreadful hotels, beggars can't be choosers but it is hard to imagine anywhere worse.

The advertised amenities - gym, spa etc all closed.

The free broadband - just didn't work much more than 5 feet from the router in reception

Breakfast - horrid

Carpets - I don't remember carpets being this bad - even in 1973 when mine was laid and, presumably, last vacuumed.

Traffic noise - incessant, though it was drowned out one night by the teenagers partying in the parking lot (they used my hire car as a temporary table for their beer and as an ashtray)

My advice if you are thinking of going to this area is to book early so that you don't have to stay somewhere like this.

Room Tip: Try a room - at another hotel

The rooms are pretty big with a huge comfortable bed. They have free wi-fi and a big screen TV. They offer complimentary goods daily (a bottle of water and possibly 1-2 candy bars). On request they offer complimentary toiletry, like razors or toothpaste.
The parking lot is not big, but you can usually find a free spot.

Room Tip: All the rooms seems to be the same.

My wife and I stayed here on a Friday night because we had a number of activities nearby on Friday and early Saturday. Room was fine. King bed was very comfortable. Everything was in good order. Free wi-fi with decent speed. Free breakfast was good - not just some rolls and coffee. Not fancy but just what we needed at a reasonable price. We'd stay there again.

Room Tip: We were near the back away from the noise of El Camino.

Hey, it's a Holiday Inn Express. Your expectations aren't high and unrealistic; I didn't expect a spa or a valet service and they didn't have one.

I showed up very late and there was someone to check me in. Breakfast was not spectacular. When I checked out there were no surprises. The room was clean and the fittings in the bathroom were clean and nice.

Location is very convenient. The street is not noisy at night. Make sure to get an upstairs room; it is California and there are a bunch of people with bikes and if you are downstairs they are louder ...

No surprises when I checked out. All good
