i stayed in Dinah's Garden Hotel in July for business for a few nights. It is hard to believe that you can find a hotel/motor inn like this one in the middle of Palo Alto with gardens and little paths winding between one-story buildings, the pool and the reception area. It offers free wifi (always important), the rooms are big, bright and clean and the neighborhood is quiet and good for jogging. it takes about 5 minutes to drive to the nearest Whole Foods and about 10 to the Stanford campus. It is not expensive considering its CA location and the staff is pleasant. Its restaurant, Trader Vic's, is well liked by the locals and the food is not bad. It is a pleasant place that I recommend for those who don't mind not staying in hotels with big concrete buildings.
