WE only had one night, but absolutely loved it. Relaxed at beautiful pool, and the rooms were wonderful. Wish we had more time to enjoy the rest of the place, the decor in restaurant was beautiful. Highly recommend the place to stay if in San Luis!!!!

Highly recommend a stay here especially if you're doing the west coast route between LA and San Francisco .. It's a great midway stopover.. The rooms are superb and all unique, the setting is excellent too with a heated pool as a bonus... We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and had a great time, visit their website to get a... More

Property is definitely unique and rooms were clean. However, our room was noisy, you could here the goings on in the rooms above and next to us. The bed was very soft and internet coverage, in our room, poor to spotty. Considering the price, I would recommend looking elsewhere.

This place is worth a stay if you a driving down the coast. We were fortunate to get there on a Thursday night and got to go into the San Luis farmers market - a real must do. The hotel is large and pink and tacky, so bear that in mind. We ended up in this ludicrous pink room with... More

It is a very unique experience. The restaurant and many things are all pink. The wood carvings by wine cellar are gorgeous. The rooms are very unique and you can the owner who was an interior designer went wild and did everything she dreamt of. A little bit overpriced rooms and restaurant but it was a fun experience.

This hotel is very different and a must stay for special occasions. Every room is decorated in a different motif and wonderful amenities. It's a little pricey, but once in a lifetime experience, especially for an anniversary.

Large stone fireplace next to a dining room adorned with (equally large) fake pepto-bismol pink roses hanging from the ceiling, beneath which pink chairs surround pink draped tables. Explore a little more to discover a pink marbled ladies room sporting a rock wall behind the toilets. The cave effect continues into the wine store. The only thing that was missing... More

One of the most iconic hotels we have ever stayed in We stayed in Country Gentleman - what a great name. Two stories - very dark wood, overly large stuff chairs. Master bedroom downstairs was spacious, and the bed divine. Two twins upstairs for the kids. The spa/pool area had views that rivaled the experience in the hot tub. Truly... More

The website makes this hotel look like a very cool, quirky place with lots of individually styled rooms making it unique in the area. The reality is that it looks, feels and smells like a brothel. The rooms we saw were dark and the decor looks a lot more takcy in real life. We only stayed for one night, thank... More

This hotel is definitely different, which is of course the entire point! Our room (Cabin Still) lived up to our expectations in terms of wackiness, but my wife and I were awoken at around 8:30 on both of the 2 mornings we stayed there by the dreadful noise of the hotel laundry which was obviously immediately beneath the room.
