I've stayed here before (and reviewed it), came back again on business for 1 days in early August. It was as good as ever - large room, well-fitted, free wifi, free parking, fresh apples in the room, very clean. Reception staff friendly and helpful; food service around the pool good value. Pool very good - and child-friendly. Clean, and towels... More

I want to thank the staff for making our stay everything one could hope for when staying somewhere for the first time, Excellent place to stay, very clean, very quiet. The front desk staff are friendly, pleasant and very helpful. I highly recommend this hotel.

I have stayed at Dinah's Garden Inn 4 times in the past 2 years, as it is very close to where my son lives in Palo Alto. Each time, my room is a little bit nicer, cleaner and more modern. It is not a big sterile chain, and not a one-off funky B&B either. Sort of in the middle, which... More

We stayed one night in a reasonably priced suite in the 800 building and could not have been more satisfied with the room and the service. An unusual and much appreciated feature was an Exercycle inside the suite.

My husband and I don't get away alone often so this was a treat. We were looking forward to the lovely serene location as we viewed on the hotel website and it proved to live up to the hype. We stayed in the 500 building, a spacious suite which had a window facing the duck pond. Delightful way to wake... More

We stayed at Dinah's Garden Hotel during a recent work trip to Palo Alto and found the hotel to be a nice alternative to the standard limited-service hotel. The setting was nice/quiet with the rooms surrounding small ponds, and the restaurant by the pool was a pleasant surprise. Don't forget to bring your bathing suit if you have time for... More

We've stayed here a couple of times while visiting family in the area. I cannot say enough about just how marvelous this place is, and how they deliver on both quality and service. The facilities are great, but it's the service ... the staff's attitude ... that makes it stand out over any other property, regardless of price. We have... More

We have enjoyed 2 wonderful nights in this hotel in August 2014 and this was definitely one of the best hotel experiences in the US! We were particularly looking for a small hotel, not a faceless network monster – and this place is superb - extremely clean and well maintained, quite, plenty of free parking space. Location is very convenient... More

We stayed here the night we got married. Beautiful place. Love the restaurant too. Now we come back for the breakfast and happy hour. They have done some remodeling. It's so nice to sit outside by the pool and eat breakfast.

We booked this hotel at the very last minute, when we needed a room for one night only. We saw that it had good reviews, but knew nothing else about it. I was exhausted and desperately in need of a good night's sleep. The room we had booked was lovely, but it happened to be adjacent to the happily busy... More
