    Mattress was the best!

    The simple little table and chairs that look out towards the pool and a beautiful scene was just fantastic. Also, the mattress is absolutely amazing -- more comfortable than a lot of 4-5 star hotels. As someone with back issues, that really was great.

    Dinah's Garden Hotel

    Gardens surrounding the hotel were absolutely beautiful and serene.the room we had was very nice and spacious. The garbage recepticals or rooms rooms were tiny. Although the water was hot enough in the shower, the water pressure was not good at all. They free onsite laundry which took full advantage of because we were on a 31-day road trip.

    Great hotel

    What a gem of a hotel! The grounds are pretty and peaceful, and the pool was much nicer than I expected. Had dinner at the restaurant one night and was pleasantly surprised by the portions (big) and quality (high) of the food. The lights in the pool area in the evening were so lovely. The room was big and clean and spacious, with everything someone would need to be comfortable. Highly recommend.

    3rd stay at Dinahs. Looking forward to more.

    Beautiful gardens and coy ponds throughout the hotel. My room sat tucked away with a private patio, waterfall, and friendly duck visitors. The restaurant is good with quick, friendly room service. The hotel staff is always friendly and quick to assist with whatever is needed. 9 out of 10 for the area.

    Accidentally left my glasses in the room when I checked out and they made sure I got them back. Can’t wait for my next stay at Dinah’s!

    A hidden gem

    One of the best hotels in the Bay Area. I love the big heated outdoor pool and the relaxing garden area. I will stay in this hotel again!

  • 6.0.Good

    Average

    I typically stay in Hilton properties such as the Hampton Inn, Hilton Garden Inn, Hilton’s, Embassy Suites so compared to that, I considered this a step down in comfort, convenience and services. For example, the room was dark and moody regardless of how many lights we switched on, there was no water unless you bought them in the middle of a heat wave, the AC was weak to cool down the warm room, and you needed a wrist band to use the small pool.

    Stayed for three days as leisure get away. We had a delux king room. It was very quiet and spacious, with large wet bar, dining table, a couch and a desk.

    Hidden garden gem

    From the checkin to checkout I felt the old school friendliness and vibe. Rooms are surrounded with coi ponds threw out the property and bamboos gave it the old school calmness. It was a wonderful staycation place for my family! As my hubs said, it’s an unexpected hidden gam steps away from the hustle n bustles of PA.
