cute place - be sure to ask for a lagoon view

Posted Feb 7, 2017
Pros: nice atmosphere - lots of amenities
Cons: get the lagoon view
Location: we were meeting friends for dinner - but Stanford is nearby
This is a really cute hotel in Palo Alto. The room was really nice, but there's this garden/koi pond/fountain area that you should definitely ask for a view of - that's what makes this hotel special.

Good location

Posted Feb 6, 2017
Pros: Landscaping was great
Cons: None
Location: Good
We visited our daughter at Stanford, and this location was ideal. It was about 3 miles from campus. It was a little above average, but considering how expensive Palo Alto was, its great value was obvious. It was like a good motel. We parked right in front of our room's door. It was great to walk 10 yards from car to bed.

We chose this hotel because of the lovely pools and lush garden surrounding it . We were pleasantly surprised with the heated pool that the kids loved . Room service was fast and food was good . Overall it was a very nice stay .

Great location in silicon valley

Posted Nov 23, 2016
Pros: Its beauty, quality of fixtures and fittings, positive attitude of owner and staff.
Cons: ?
Location: On El Camino at Palo Alto, close to all Silicon Valley major companies (Tesla, Apple, Google etc) and Stanford University and Stanford Shopping Centre
With an owner who really cares about clients' comfort, Dinah's proved to be a delightful experience. More than a hotel with the beautiful landscaped gardens and water features (including ducks!). Way better than anything else experienced in this area.
