Good 6.0
The hotel was very quaint and great location. Everything was fine with the hotel except the room/hallways had a very strong odor-smelled old and musty. I don’t know if the dog friendly rooms haven’t been remodeled or updated yet.

Best place to stay in Palo Alto
We were given the FDR suite and it was amazing!! So spacious and has a separate table and desk so we each had our own work space. The fireplace kept us nice and warm. The bathroom shower has a steam option as well as overhead, side, and handheld shower head options! Mini bar was stocked with wine, beer, & sodas with free Dasani water. At check in we had the choice of a bottle of wine or See’s chocolate. We opted for the chocolate which were delicious! Within a mile is Sprouts, Whole Foods, Veggie Grill, Starbucks, and several other places to eat. I will definitely stay here the next time work takes me to Palo Alto!

Very good 8.0
Traquil garden surrounding
We enjoyed staying at this property and the calm surroundings. The rooms were very clean and we enjoyed a private patio facing the pool. One drawback was we were on the bottom floor of a two story and you could really hear the person walking around above us. It didn't last very long but it was noisy and woke me up at 4 am. I would stay here again but would request a room on the second floor or one of the units with only one floor.

Stay here it’s refreshingly calm and clean
Great hotel not far from Stanford. Just a few minutes drive away. The hotel lagoon pond area is great filled with fish and ducks and other animals around. Parking right outside your door. Friendly staff at front desk. It’s now my go to spot in Palo Alto.

Great place
Nice hotel I would come back again. Could be a bit cleaner. Saw hair on bathroom wall.

Exceptional 10.0
Scouting for a hotel was a challenge. I was looking for room service and free parking. This hotel caught my eye because of a previous review that mentioned the hotel is tucked away from the hustle and bustle. Which it is, the only annoying thing is the slow traffic in the area. But I digress. Beautiful koi pond that is also home to ducks. The front desk will give you food to feed them if you so wish. We got “upgraded” for free to a room right next to the pond which was relaxing. This was due to the sounds of water trickling. The room was spacious with a mini fridge which included complimentary water and $2 beer/soda. This booking included a free bottle of either Merlot or Chardonnay which the latter wasn’t too bad. The front desk and room service was excellent. Customer service is on point at Dinah’s. Recommend.
