Very nice hotel for the area. Beautiful garden and koi pond between the rooms. Rooms were spacious and clean. Just wish they had more parking, we got back late and had to park on the other end of the property. Would stay again.

Dinah’s never disappoints. Check-in was easy and fast. Parking was conveniently located near the room. The 3rd floor lagoon-view room was clean and comfortable, and the view was pleasing. The modern elevator was helpful in bringing luggage up to the room. Saturday morning brunch at the pool-side restaurant was surprisingly relaxing even with other guests around, and the food was well-received all around. The American Breakfast, Continental Breakfast, and Eggs Benedict were all nicely presented, delicious, and reasonably priced. Service was excellent.
