I stayed here for a wedding in October 2012. I had always wanted to stay here, so I was pretty excited about the prospect. In the end, it was sort of a let down. I got to view several rooms since we were there with a big party -- they were a little sad, actually, and each one smelled musty. The service at the hotel bar was not good - the bartenders were not welcoming to our group at all - even borderline rude to the bride and groom. I did like the pool, though -- it was more enteratining that I expected to be hanging out in a bathing suit at this faux island paradise above I-5. In the end, I think I would have preferred for this place to stay in my imagination because the reality didn't live up.
