Stayed here for three nights to attend a conference. It's actually a pretty dazzling property. Great grounds, several pools, very nice meeting spaces for the conference.
I only wish I could have visited during warm weather - and we weren't in the middle of such short days on the calendar.
Rooms and bathrooms are large (though I really hate the fad of sliding doors for the bathrooms, they are kind of loud).
Staff were all very nice and professional.
The weird thing about being off-season is that the shops and restaurants were pretty vacant. (The main dining location, The Californian, is under renovation - and many of the other restaurants are seasonal). As a result of the season, food choices are slim. there's the surfer bar, the Red Chair Lounge, and the pizza place. I was going to choose the pizza place one evening, but they had nothing ready made and I didn't want to wait (If you live in a city with a place like that, you'd assume it was a front for a drug ring or something ;-) ). The surfer bar was fine, but nothing special - they could do better as the Cobb salad I ordered had the look of pre-prepared bits that were placed on the plate.
There is are several shops on property, but the food options in them are mostly pre-packaged from what I could tell. And there's really not much within walking distance (although I found out late that the generic hotel next door is actually a Hilton (which is confusing because there is a regular website and a Hilton website, so maybe that's a recent take-over).
I did not have a car, so was pretty much relegated to remain on property. The car park charge seems a bit gouging, as are the room service fees. My burger with fries and a $12 glass of wine came to about $40.
That said, I wouldn't mind coming back, but not in winter, and not without a car.
And Eron Hodges, Executive Assistant Manager, please don't paste the same response you've done on every review. If you don't have anything new to say, I think you're missing the point.
