We were only in Atascadero for one night and rather than stay in a chain hotel, this place caught my eye. Am I glad it did! What a lovely and grand hotel in a convenient location. Upon check-in a tour bus had arrived just before us (an unusual event, I am told). When I noticed that my room was next to all the tourists, the front desk staff immediately switched me to another room across the hotel where it would be quieter without me even asking her to do so! I really appreciated that and the room we were given was extremely quiet and restful. We choose to stay in the balcony king, which has a view of the interior courtyard. The courtyard view was pleasant and no noise emanated from the patio -- at least not on a Sunday evening. Our room was simple, but tastefully decorated. The two best parts were the large bathroom with sanijet bathtub and large separate shower and the exquisitely comfortable bed and linens. Honestly, we really hated to leave after only one night. Parking is either in the public lot behind the hotel or across the street. We parked behind the hotel. The only thing I didn't understand was the $15 "resort fee" charged as I did not see the value in it for the customer -- it just seemed like a way to tack on an extra charge. That being said, even with the "resort fee" the room was an excellent value. We would definitely recommend this hotel and plan to return at some time in the future.
