Many thanks for the kind words and five star review of your recent stay with us at Dinah's Garden Hotel. We're so happy to hear that your week long stay with us was enjoyable and that you were able to take advantage of both the Poolside Restaurant located inside the hotel grounds, as well as Alexander's By the Sea restaurant which is just steps away from our lobby door. We hope that you will visit us again soon when your business brings you back to the Silicon Valley area. Best Wishes, Steve Mathews Front Office Manager Dinah's Garden Hotel

The room was spotless, had a big balcony. The grounds, plantings and koi pond planted around the buildings were amazing, demonstrating many decades of work and must be a calm, cool oasis in the summer.. This chilly January morning, a swimmer was doing laps the heated pool.

Standard vanity area outside the bathroom proper.
Big and seemingly blah at first. It grew on me -- and it had a view of the stream and ducks.

Greetings Jim, Thank you for considering Dinah's Garden Hotel. The Portola Redwoods State Park looks to be just under 20 miles away from us but, due to the remote location, is about a 45 minute drive from our hotel. Taking Page Mill Road would be the most direct route. We hope to see you soon. Best Regards, Steven Mathews Front Office Manager Dinah's Garden Hotel
