Chris K. described the rooms wonderfully; great beds, lovely bathrooms with great showers. We did Stay and Play and felt that the deal was terrific; playing the course 2 times in a row a pleasure, the clubhouse restaurant very good, all staff, esp. golf very friendly. Internet access free and easy. Fun putting greens game, beautiful landscaping. When the Carmel/Monterrey area was all booked up this was available and reasonable and above average.
WHY NOT 5 STARS: The included continental breakfast nicely presented but average; the arrangements (confirming reservations, arranging tee times, which nites were with and without golf, etc.) slightly difficult on the phone, and I'm very fussy :) We left just as the county began to have water main problems so a bit distressing to see brown water coming from the faucet but not really the hotel's fault.
My friends think I'm amazing finding deals at great places like this, but I'm not always so lucky!
