Dinah's Garden Hotel, Palo Alto
Wonderful find!
Greeted by a friendly and professional front desk agent set the tone for our overnight. Beautiful garden like setting, quiet and clean. We were impressed by the nice size of the room - well thought out with extra towels in the room, space to put your things and overlooking the lagoon. Very nice and I'm so glad i found Dinah's Garden.

My Recent Business trip to Palo Alto
Dinah’s is one of the few old style service oriented resort hotels still operated by a single family. Clearly the owner understands the importance of developing (and maintaing) good customer relations.

Inspiring stay.
We chose the room with a patio to the Coy pond. A very tranquil relaxation to sit out back and forget your troubles. Very friendly staff, great food and free charging for electric cars. We charged our Chevy Volt and had a great stay.

Make sure you see room
Room off parking lot so I did not feel safe coming and going at night which seems absurd fir this price

Good choice!
Very nice place--the staff was helpful, the room was comfortable and well-appointed, and the grounds are several steps above your typical motel.
