Stayed here recently for a wedding. The grounds / common areas are very nice, the wedding and catering piece were fantastic.
Pool was nice with a decent poolside menu. The staff were mainly friendly and the rooms themselves are nice as well as clean. We got a very favorable nightly rate although I don't know if that was because of our involvement with the wedding, the fact that it was California in July, or whether their rates are always reasonable. In relation to the nightly rate we paid, I thought the hotel was just great.
One thing i did not care for, which is a pet peeve of mine, is that they charge 10 bucks to use the internet in the room, yet it is free if you schlep your lap top down to the lobby. Similarly, we called the front desk to ask them a question, and they ended up connecting us to a local business in the area. When we checked out, we were told that there was a $1.50 charge for this local call. When I am away, especially on a non-business trip, there is nothing I hate more than being "nickel and dimed," which was the exact feeling I got from both the internet charges and the $1.50 charge for
being connected on a basic local call.
