The main reason to stay here is here is the unique sulfur-fed hot spring tubs that they have for each room. They have several different room styles. We have stayed in one hill-side room and also stayed in the Meadow Suites three times. The cost is really based on having the hot tubs I think because the level of the rooms/service in that area doesn't justify the rates. That said, it is a great place to feel like you are getting away from it all and have the great relaxation of a private hot tub for your room. The sulfur-springs really are unbelievably relaxing. It is a quick drive down to the ocean area and there are lots of hiking trails nearby as well as San Luis Obispo. So its a great romatic/relaxing get-away just a little too pricey for the quality of the rooms and level of service.
