I've stayed here a few times and always find it relaxing. Having the private hot tub available just outside the room is so nice. The restaurant is nice and the food is fantastic. Avila beach is a short ride away. The resort/rooms are showing some wear and could use an update. Overall though, still a very pleasant stay.

I super enjoyed staying there and refreshed so much. Food was good and hot spring was super great!! I wish the other hot spring outside was free for someone staying at the hotel. But overall it was great moment we had. We definitely come back here!!!

My husband and I have stayed here several times. We enjoy the sulfur hot tub and the grounds. Rented bikes and rode to Avila and it was great. Not a five because this stay I noticed a food stain on the comforter and food particles on a wall. The rooms could use an update.

This resort is near Avila beach, between Pismo beach and San Luis Obispo. If you are traveling, you should spend a day or night here. Or it is only 1.5 hours from Santa Barbara. Spring for a renovated King suit over the bridge. Spacious, nice finishes, private deck with your own private hot tub. Or you could even spend the... More

My and my girl had this place recommended to us, so we stopped by on our way through town. They upgraded us to a Garden King Suite, which was fantastic! The private jacuzzi pool on the balcony was where we spent three hours that night and a half hour the next morning before taking off. I love this place!! The... More

Overall, we had an average stay at Sycamore Springs. For the price we paid, I expected a little more. PROs: The room is newly remodeled with a large shower, 2 sinks, fridge. We stayed in the room Inspired. The person who came to help adjust or hot tub temperature was very knowledgeable and nice. He taught us how to fill... More

We live in San Luis Obispo and wanted to get away for our anniversary, but not travel too far. We could not have picked a better place to do so! It was only a five minute drive, but it felt like we were in a whole different world! Having our own tub was amazing. We spent most of our time... More

It was the perfect getaway. Minimal planning and everything fell into place. The only thing I booked in advance was the Oasis for the private waterfall. To my surprise there were bikes available for rent. We rented them for a day and rode 2 miles to Avila beach twice during the day! Hiked up the trail the morning of checkout...it... More

Beautiful property, friendly staff, one of a kind. We had a great stay-cation, living only 15 miles from Avila Beach. We enjoyed the sulfur hot springs and took a long hike starting right at the resort. we rode our bikes to Avila Beach for lunch along the Bob Jones trail. However, the room is showing its age with some chipped... More

It was a great, except for the following: 1. Not too long after we got to our room, the TV repairman came to fix the TV. The 2 guys were in our room for almost one hour. 2. When we were out hiking up the hill at 7:30 a.m., two SUVs were driving up the hill (they didn't look like... More
