Single bed in room and blanket is a bit too heavy. Pillows need to be a bit firmer for comfort and support. Should change soaps at least once every two days.
The friendly staffs tops it all. The garden and ponds are very appealing.

Back balcony was a great place to relax. It had a great pond with ducks and large koi. The running fountains made us feel far from the urban surroundings.

Not cookie cutter hotel

It was beautiful , like a small village. Trees , ducks , squirrels and running water in the Artificial "Lake" all made up for a very relaxing environment. In a close proximity to Stanford and pretty much close to everything. On "El Camino" which is a well-known street in the Area , a couple of blocks from Starbucks and San Antonio Shopping Center. Everything is around and within 5 minutes of walking time.

I always enjoy staying at Dinah's, the staff are very friendly, the location is great for work and the breakfasts are superb. Palo Alto is pretty woefully under-served for decent hotels - this is definitely one of the stand outs.

They offered free breakfast pastries but these were a bit nasty. Some bagels, scones etc would have been a better choice.
This is an older hotel that has been very nicely renovated. Large rooms, very nice grounds and a very pleasant pool side restaurant.

The fact that you have to go quite a way to secure a Sunday paper. Hotel should sell them.
The gardens and water ways. Excellent! The restaurant has an absolutely Excellent breakfast menu. Don't know what I like best as all offerings are great.

We stayed on the first floor so the noise from the floor above can be distracting if you are trying to go to bed.
Staff very friendly. Easy parking. Beautiful landscape.

The ducks on the ponds kept waking me up in the morning, but it was fun to watch them so forgivable.
They have a beautiful Japanese garden.

No complaints here good bargain for the bucks.
Grounds were nice, service was good. Breakfast at the restaurant pool side was good and pleasant.

Pool side restaurant breakfast was really good....dinner menu was lacking. Food was greasy and weird flavors going on. Smokey green olives on Salmon. Ughhhh!

It's a little bit noisy with sound from nearby rooms and the occasional train horns. The ground floor that border on the car park are not great for privacy either.
The staff here were incredibly friendly and helpful, it really helped make for a relaxing environment. And if that's not relaxing enough, sitting for a while and staring at the giant koi carp definitely helps.
