Terrible customer service, poor communication skills, and very misleading. My father in law booked a room for myself and my husband to stay during our wedding weekend. This was his gift to us. He purchased the room online , paid with his credit card , printed a receipt for me and one for himself. Upon checking in I was asked... More

Had a great time! The king suite was over in the nature preserve and was awesome, We also took the hike over the mountain to over look Aviala beach and it was a steep hike but worth the views atop... overall a great experience but a tad pricey....

We had a great the resort for our anniversary. We hiked to the top of the ridge and had a nice picnic. We enjoyed the yoga at 9:00 AM. Relaxed in our room and the in room hot tub. We finally ended our stay by reserving the Oasis spa for an hour and it was awesome.

This was my second visit to Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort and as always, I was very happy with my visit. The grounds are beautifully kept and it always feels like you're a world away from everyone. Check in was smooth and our room was clean and comfortable. We did use the hot tub on our balcony and it was nice... More

The resort was nice and staff were friendly except at the restaurant. Server was not the most friendly person. Felt a little uncomfortable there. Overall we enjoyed the trip. Having a private jacuzzi was very nice. Also having quiet hours after 9 pm was great.

We were down at the Sycamore during the historic July deluge. Even though we had car trouble our stay was still great due to the easy trail access & the mineral springs; of course. Clean rooms & a great location.

We visited their Hillside Hot Tub last year during our mini vacation in SLO and discovered this beautiful resort. Found out each room comes with its own hot tub!!! We invited another couple and booked their 2bd/2ba suite. Suite was beautifully decorated and very clean. Felt very secluded in our hot tub in the back. The only complain is the... More

Great location; near San Luis Obispo and it's wine country and beaches but secluded (although too close to a local road for my taste). The grounds are lovely and relaxing. We had a room with it's own mineral water hot tub. Saw some of the suites, which were even nicer. My wife took a yoga class which she liked, also... More

My boyfriend and I stayed one night on our way north. The customer service is extremely accommodating, the food was delicious, the spa/massages were incredible and beyond relaxing. Only good things to say about Sycamore!

Amazing and romantic location! Great weekend getaway. We asked for a wine opener and it took 45 minutes to arrive:( Other than that it was a great experience and look forward to staying there again!!!
