I have stayed at Churon half a dozen times. The first time was in 2003, my most recent stay was Dec 2012. Each time my wife and I have gone back we have noticed improvements, new wainscotting, flat screen tvs, landscaping updates here and there. There really is no other hotel like Churon anywhere in So. Cal. On our last trip we awoke in the morning to see hot air baloons floating off in the distance, if it was'nt real you would think it was just some cliche'd cheesy scene from a movie. The suite we stayed in (room 208 I think) had a huge oversized tub with whirpool jets. The room had two fireplaces and one was shared between the foyer wall and the inside bathroom wall. So imagine your sitting in a hottub with a fireplace right next to it, how cool! On top of the the grounds are beautiful they have water features like fountains and small (manmade) stream. So many places to bring a picknick basket and some wine, or a book and spend some time.
The afternoon wine hour is a big plus and if you plan it right you can finish your day of exploring Temecula wines by enjoying the wine hour and then not having to drive, just walk to your room. The included breakfast was delecious and its not buffet style folks. You get and actual menu and a food server all served in a very cozy dining room with views of the vineyards.
Given that this whole experience can be had for around 180 bucks my wife and I have found Churon to be one of the best places to stay hands down. (The wine hour would cost cost you $20 for two the breakfast would be $20 for two as well)
The balconies offer you a better more private view, but the ground level has more convient access to...
