I stayed at Menlo Park Inn for a business trip. The staff there were friendly and courteous. They had complimentary breakfast. There are several breakfast selections including bagels, muffins, gluten free bread, whole wheat bread, oatmeal, yogurt, fruit (banana, oranges, and apples). Coffee is StarBucks brand. Juice is organic. Their breakfast starts at 6:30am, but I forgot when it ends...

Chose the Inn as a place to stay for a Menlo College class reunion on advice of friends. And, were they ever right! Let's start with Krystle who took my phone reservation which involved some specific requests. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and businesslike... including a cell message to me on day of arrival that room was ready for occupancy (which...

My husband and I recently spent one night at the Menlo Park Inn. Although the inn looks like a motel with outdoor access to the rooms, it is so much more! Our room was very lovely - clean, spacious, and decorated very nicely with a king size bed, desk, comfy reading chair, and dresser with a large TV. There was...

It is conveniently located, close to many good restaurants, 1.6 km from Stanford Shopping Centre. It's quient despite in the main street, with only 32 rooms, and a small cafe for...

I stayed here for a high school reunion. What a gem. It looks like it was once a motel, but they converted it to a nice little boutique inn. Three of us girlfriends shared a room.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In a region renowned for razor-sharp venture capital firms and a generous dose of Stanford-style intellectual innovation, the Menlo Park Inn carves a decidedly unique niche - a sleek, utterly stylish inn that makes all-star service its top priority. Sure, our guests love our easy, under-two-mile access to Palo Alto, but what really makes them smile? We think it's the sweet smell of fresh-baked cookies. It's an Xperience you'll never forget. ... more   less
