In full disclosure, I've eaten a lot of prime rib but never eaten at Ruth's Chris or Morton's. Other than that...I've probably eaten there. Just haven't been interested in "high-end chain" steaks. Who knows, I could be missing out. ANYWAY...the prime rib at this restaurant is out of control!! Cooked and seasoned to perfection...my mouth is watering just thinking about... More

Had some friends in Los Gatos recommend we stay here,would not have known about it otherwise. Old Ranch converted to Inn. Rooms were good,restaurant and piano bar great and right on property,so no driving after a day on the road. One of the highlights would be a long walk you can take to Pebble Beach,just an amazing walk along waters... More

My husband and I are going to California for our 10th Anniversary and to renew our wedding vows. I found this place when checking out the map at the spot where the river meets the sea and decided to check it out. We were quite impressed by the photos on the website so I gave them a call. My first... More

Bars in a bathtub do not an ADA-friendly accommodation make. I rented the quaint Bunkhouse for 2 nights, as a surprise BDay present for my 91-yr. old mother. The cost for the 2 nights exceeded $700. We arrived after sunset and a 5-hour drive. After I unloaded the car, arranged the suitcases and hung up our clothes, I used the... More

We booked this hotel because it looked like a farm in the middle of the town. Well, we got it right, and our 2 night were more than comfortable. Beds are great, rooms are big, but cozy, and charming. Wifi worked well enough. The highlight of the hotel, along with the rooms, is the restaurant, which is always packed,mhas live... More

Mission Ranch is a beautiful spot and Carmel is a charming town. My husband and I stayed for 4 nights in June 2014. The view across the meadow to the beach is gorgeous and the gardens etc are very well maintained. We used the tennis courts every day and they were immaculate - the staff at the club house were...

My wife and I have been staying here at least once a year for the past 15 years. Accommodations are average at best, below average if one considers the price. For example, the bathroom fixtures have worn to the point where the chrome is gone from the sink drain and the mattress has lumps. Why stay here? It is the... More

My hubby and I just stayed here for two nights in room 40. The hotel was absolutely lovely and immaculate. It felt like we were staying at a rich relative's ranch as opposed to just another hotel. We were told at check in that room 40 is the most requested room on the ranch, and could easily see why. Our... More

The Mission Ranch, owned by Clint Eastwood, is peaceful, quiet, homey, and in a perfect spot. There's an on site restaurant with bar where locals and tourists mingle together and talk late into the night. The food is excellent and staff were friendly, but not overly so. The rooms are cottage like and cozy. We stayed in one with a... More

Just spent a long weekend here for a wedding. It truly is a beautiful venue. The wedding party took up almost the entire place for both Friday and Saturday but I also got a bonus night in on Thursday. The rooms are all very different. My friend and I started out sharing room 14 - one of the basic double... More
