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

Set up a long weekend for a sisters trip and loved this place and would recommend. Rented the guest house and we will be going back again soon. The spa lagoon is great but make sure to book when you get in. Books up quickly. Short drive to Avila Beach and San Luis Obispo. Nice hikes to the beach.

Staff was very friendly and accommodating. We had a great stay and enjoyed to hot tub in our room. My only advice for sycamore is maintaining the rooms a little better. Not that the place was dirty but just a little outdated and worn. Example, bathroom baseboards were warped pretty bad, and scuff marks on walls. Simple fixes that could... More

Truly beautiful and private place to enjoy the benefits of natural hot springs. The remodeled rooms are fantastic and the resort service is great. However, the resturant has gone massively downhill which saddened us greatly as we have been going for years. So go for the spa/spring and go elsewhere for dining.

I was at the Sycamore with my boyfriend for the weekend. We were there for a wedding I was the maid of honor of, so it was such a busy weekend, I barely could enjoy the beautiful hotel amenities. But it was enough time to say that Sycamore is a hotel I want to get back to and soon. We... More
