Shower water was lukewarm one morning. Bed was old and uncomfortable. Rooms need updating. There was mold at the top of the ceiling of the bathroom. Bathroom and bedroom walls were painted at two different times with different shades of paint, made it took poorly taken of. Kitchen was complete in the deluxe suite. Furniture was fine. They were very... More

Overall not bad. Clean, kind of a cool retro vibe and a friendly staff. Resort fee was 39.00 for a really marginal internet connection and access to pool etc. In all fairness, this place is not a resort and the jacuzzi was warm but no jets. I would return only in a pinch.

I barely know where to start with this place. We chose this place based on the photos on line. Spoke with a receptionist at the "resort", and was told these were converted apartments. Sounded interesting, maybe even enticing. When we arrived, we couldn't believe we had paid for this place. It's a converted apartment building only in the sense that... More

If you are looking for "Glamor and Glitter" -- keep moving on. If you're into having great conversations, come on in and join the tribe. This one is very diverse and close to places you want to visit.

At El Dorado, there's a lot to like. Huge rooms, that are converted 1, 2 or 3 bedroom apartments with separate living areas, full kitchens and halls to the bedrooms. A fantastic "play" area with a big pool, bocce ball, grills, sun beds, multiple TVs, cabanas and several fire pits. Bikes. A cute little lobby bar with craft brews, wine... More

They play music and there are cool couch bed areas as well as many comfy poolside chairs. The pool and hot tub were clean. Unit was huge like a... More

Wow...I have never had an experience like I had at El Dorado. I made a reservation at 1pm through Orbitz and received a pretty decent deal for check in the same day. I traveled from LA to accompany my mom and dad for my dad's bypass surgery. They live in Rio Verde and they had a house full of guests... More

Stayed for 5 nights in May 2014 and had a lovely time. The two bedroom-two bathroom suite we rented was spacious and perfect for my friend and I. While we were likely the oldest guests in the hotel and didn't resemble the demographic but somehow felt right at home with the rest of the guests and staff. Staff were super... More
