The personal hot tub was absolutely awesome! It made us so relaxed we didn't want to leave. The only down side was the bed. It was too high up and way too soft. We slept terribly. The shower was cool because it had two heads but our toilet didn't flush properly. Overall go for the hot tub.

The bathroom had hair in the sink and it was so loud that we couldn't sleep. We really really excited about staying there and I was disappointed. Not sure if we will try it again or not....hope other people had a better stay!

The property is offers a true mineral springs experience. The spa services were very good; walking/biking trails to beach and hill top are on the property and wind through the gorgeous country side to Avilla Beach and beyond. I would recommend the queen or king suites for more space and luxury. They are large, comfortable, and have private mineral spring... More

We took a day trip to San Louis Obispo, Pismo Beach, and Avila Beach. We visited the mission and SLO museum which wee nice but it was hot and humid. We then went to the Sycamore Mineral Springs spa and rented a two person hot tub for an hour. My friend is shy of public bathing so this was a... More

We have enjoyed numerous stays at this facility and were excited for a quick get a way. We stayed in newly renovated room, but the hot tub needed attention. The water was warm at best, the jets were very weak (non-existent). In fact, the general water pressure was poor. We contacted the front desk and did not seem to gather... More

We loved the room and felt like the price was actually pretty reasonable for all you got. Wish we could have stayed longer. The only downside was the meal at the onsite restaurant- which we felt was over priced for the actual quality. The service was fine, but for that much $$ I expected scallops to be a LITTLE bigger...

Great place. Cottage was private but noisy due to workman and ceaseless traffic noise for such a sleepy road to Avila beach. Staff is excellent and restaurant exceptional in a community of outstanding restaurants.

Dear Ryan, Thank you for staying with us at Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort. We appreciate your continued business. We are so sorry to hear that your hot tub wouldn’t stay full both nights. Sometimes the drain knob isn’t entirely closed, so there will be a slow drain occurring. We are more than happy and willing to send someone out to... More

Location was great but room was very dated. We were traveling with a 5 month old. It was very hard to push a stroller up the hill to our room. The restroom was very small and was hard to get ready and take care of baby's essentials. The walls were very thin, as we could hear our neighbors and their... More
