We stay in the Palo Alto area frequently because our children are Stanford students, but this was our first time at Dinah's as we got a very good internet rate on a room. It is not a hotel but rather a two-story motel off El Camino (behind and on the same grounds with Trader Vic's restaurant) with lovely water features and beautiful plantings. Our standard room was quite small and had a queen rather than king-sized bed as printed on our confirmation, but it was late and we were too tired to ask for a switch. The desk staff was cordial and probably would have made the correction. Although the room was tiny, it was brilliantly organized to include everything one would want (including a work desk with free T1 internet access and a refrigerator), was meticulously clean, and had been charmingly updated. Each room appears to have a private patio or balcony with chairs, table, and a lovely view of the garden, pool, or stream. Each evening we found a fresh supply of ice tucked in the refrigerator. Parking is free and ample, which stands in pleasant contrast to some hotels in the area. There is an onsite laundry room for guest use if needed.
