First timer, tubs were not hot more like luke warm. When we went downstairs front desk asked how was it my response was cold. Then their response was that they were having to close half of their tubs for the same reason that people were complaining and that at this time there was nothing they could do. Front desk personal... More

We have loved staying at Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort! Such a beautiful room and property. Comfortable bed and great fire place. With hiking paths, your in the middle of nature, even with turkeys roaming around! Easy walks to the beach too. I'll be back!

We wanted to check out the hot springs but were enjoying the garden, landscaping and restaurant so much we just forgot to soak! The bar was great and happy hour found us there 3 nights in a row. Jeff ( the bar tender ) was awesome. He chatted with us each night and turned us on to insider info on... More

80% of our stay was good, but given the price and marketing of the resort it was lacking the 20% that could make it great. Check in was ok. Arriving at 4 PM put us in a line out the door of reception, but the staff did as best they could to expedite the process. We stayed in a King... More

We paid top dollar for a 2 bedroom suite to find that it was very beat up and the fireplace did not work. I have stayed in rode side motels that were kept in better condition. Every piece of furniture was beat up and looked like dogs chewed on it. What renovations had been done in the past were cheep... More

We traveled down the California coast and booked the Sycamore as our mid-trip "treat" after a recommendation from a family member. Our overall experience was marred by a very unpleasant introduction. We registered after 6:00 PM, the check in person was perfunctory and unwelcoming and never offered any assistance with our luggage or in finding our room in the dark.... More

We got the package deal for the hotel, massage and dinner. Everything was great. The bed was exceptionally comfortable, although it is quite high. I am short and had to pull myself into bed. Our suite was a good size and everything was clean. Parts of the bar looked shabby and the carpet was wet, but we didn't spend much... More

My husband and I love the relaxing vibe, great food and healing mineral waters of Sycamore Springs. The remodels in the West Meadows suites are really a great upgrade. We stay here at least 2-3 times per year!

I'm a local and have visited this property several times now for little staycations and each time I've had a wonderful experience and I'm shocked at all the bad reviews. Both girls I encountered at the front desk this last stay were very accommodating. When I called to see if we could check in early I spoke with Jessa and... More

My wife and I had a wonderful time as we got married in the Oasis Pool. We love that pool! The room we stayed in and the room hot tub were a bit worn. The staff was courteous, especially the employees at the hot tub rentals. All in all, we had a great time and will be back!
