I have been traveling past this hotel for years. I remember when it was a Holiday Inn. This month, I got my wish. My daughter was racing at nearby Laguna Seca Raceway early in the morning so we pulled in the night before. A gentleman in the driveway helped us clear our racing trailer under the overhang at the front entry. Turns out he was the manager. Really? That was pretty cool.
Once checked in, we walked to our room overlooking the pool. The place had just been remodeled including exotic plants all over. The room was early Bahia or Hawaiian...bamboo type furnishing. I felt I was in the islands. I like that.
We checked out the restaurant. My kind of place. Lots of low lighting and ambiance. View of the ocean. This is where our story turns. I don't remember the food because the service was so bad. It was a Friday night and we were one of the few people in the restaurant (around 7PM). Most of the time, the server couldn't be found. I had to keep asking for everything. At one point, I had to get up, go over to the bar, and order my own cocktail. Every time the server approached the table, he apologized. Get rid of that guy(and maybe the bartender and hostess who were always chewing the fat together).
Stay at this hotel. It's a pleasure. Go somewhere else for dinner.
