The gardens are amazing, and best of all the ducks and koi are hugely entertaining. Our room was clean and comfortable. We will stay here again next time we are in the area.

Amazing bed!

Gardens were beautiful. On-site restaurant was delicious and setting by the pool was wonderful. Room was big and high ceilings. Was a great stay

Dinah's has been in the Bay Area forever and there's a reason why they've stayed! The staff is lovely, the rooms are clean and cozy, and the grounds are gorgeous. For those booking online that are planning to bring their dogs (as the hotel is marked "Dog-friendly") make sure you call them and let them know you're bringing your pooch! They have certain rooms specifically for doggie visitors and their humans. There's also a $100 flat fee, so prepare for that!

Unique. Great back garden for dog. Water sounds and pleasant landscaping

Wonderful! Would stay here again. Clean and friendly, good location.

Like: tropical setting, water features. Not like: not enough parking spaces

Beautiful place! Close to Stanford! Nice rooms and comfortable beds!

Staff was exceptionally friendly and accommodating. Wonderful on site restaurant and beautiful and relaxing grounds.

This is a pretty hotel with a great poolside restaurant. I liked how it is on a busy street but once you're in the hotel it's quite peaceful with their lagoon and koi.

Charming, classic California, friendly staff, poolside restaurant, feels like home.

Beautiful grounds- shangrila like. Very peaceful. Friendly staff and convenient location

Loved the atmosphere and the property. Close to Stanford!

One of my favorite Hotels in the World. Only will stay at Dinah's when I am in the Bay Area.

Many thanks for the "5/5" review of your stay with us at Dinah's. We do have eight rooms that are "pet friendly" rooms, all of which fall in our "Deluxe Room One King Bed" category. Our Pet Fee is a flat $50 for the entire stay unless that stay exceeds seven days. If there was a misquote on that fee, please get in touch with us. We are happy that you enjoyed your time and look forward to welcoming you back soon. Best Wishes, Steven Mathews Front Office Manager Dinah's Garden Hotel
