Property Description

The Creekside Inn is part of Palo Alto's history. In 1955 the property was but a small 30-room hotel amongst the oak trees with cabins looking over the creek. Over the years the Creekside Inn has expanded to a full service 136-room property, consisting of delightful small buildings surrounded by oak trees, gardens, and Matadero Creek. The Creekside Inn is situated on 3 1/2 lovely landscaped acres and features comfortably appointed guestrooms. They are very spacious and all offer private patios, in-room coffee makers, hair dryers, voicemail and refridgerators. In addition each room offers complimentary wireless internet access, bottled water, and use of our plush terry-cloth robes. Deluxe rooms with kitchenettes and large seating areas are also available.
