Overall, I had a great experience. The only complaint I would have is that we stayed on the first floor of the Adventure Building and you could hear every footstep of the people walking overhead. Other than that, we had an amazing time and I would definitely go back!

The room we got was a total disappointment – totally unimaginable from the pictures. If I knew that there is an even slight possibility that I could be offered to stay in such a room; I would not choose this hotel... We got a basement-level room with an extreme smell, a broken ceiling fan and an air conditioner. As soon... More

Sycamore has been a touchstone as a couple for almost 30 years. We return again and again for the magic of the setting, the romantic but laid-back vibe, and of course, the mineral springs. This last stay was marred by management's refusal to honor the package benefit promised when we register through their website. For the negligible financial difference it... More

Buildings are a little old, but furnishings are updated and nice. The bed was great. My biggest complaint is the small bathroom with no fan. I was not comfortable leaving the window (which opens to the outdoor hall) open while showering and getting dressed. Place would be good for couples or people that really use the spa facilities; otherwise, skip... More

My Daughter and I had our 2nd annual stay at Sycamore. We loved our room (Restful) with the window out to the 'wild'. However, we had a very inconsiderate neighbor above us who seemed to do his best to annoy us by heavily pacing back and forth in his room and at times waking us. I understand there is little...

This is the good review… we love this place. We have come to refresh and recharge many times…. going back to probably 15 years and never been disappointed. It is pricey but at least you get your dollar's worth and you get a homey, not four seasons kind of experience. One of the best aspects are the people who work... More

Although this was a little pricey for my usual budget, my boyfriend and I wanted to splurge on a relaxing night in SLO and that's what we got! The hot tub was clean and ready to go when we got there and our room/bungalow was separate from any disturbances and was so peaceful! We had dinner at the bar which... More

This was our first visit to this Resort. After consideration of comfort, we upgraded from Queen bed rooms to King suites though for considerably more money. We were 2 couples who reserved 2 rooms. The hotel staff at check-in were a bit confused and took some time to sort out our reservation. After having earlier requested and been granted early... More

i believe that sycamore mineral springs can be a better place of business. there's a much needed new design eye for the place, and i wish i could renovate it myself. also, the customer service, while sweet, is in need of some help. have a look at japanese onsens and/or spas in general for help. i stay at a lot...

For our one year anniversary we stayed in the newly renovated rooms that are next to the Bob Jone's Trail. We had stayed here for our anniversary and wanted to come back. They are really nice rooms, large with the same amenities as the regular rooms though. Personally I don't see any benefit to staying here vs the regular ones... More
