I really enjoyed my 3-day stay here because I like the old-time motel feel. The rooms were a bit worn as was the pool area. However it was all clean, welcoming, and friendly. There were a lot of pools in the courtyard, each with different temperature water. The other guests were all super friendly and also enjoying the relaxation in...

Around 10:30am this duo on keyboards & guitar start cranking up some very bad and LOUD music. I am a guitar player &...

If you love this place or hate this place may say more about you as a traveler then the place itself. This hotel never tries to pretend it something it's not and is very clear about its services and accommodations. What is does have is 8 hot pools of varying degrees, sizes and bubbles. It has a friendly staff, great...

This hotel is way past its use by date and should close it's doors. From the start -the lobby is depressing, the hotel surrounds and the town is depressing. the rooms are disgusting. The pools are dirty and the whole place is in need of a massive sterilization. Security also seems to be an issue and people go here to...

The hotel and rooms are dated, but they were clean. The staff is very friendly, the pools are nicely maintained, and the restaraunt attached to the hotel had good food. We stayed for one night and we were pleased with our experience.

This was the perfect last minute getaway, affording us much needed downtime in the amazing mineral pools while soaking up the sun. The staff was friendly, professional, and even the restaurant/staff was a perk--good food and very accommodating! While advertised as close to shopping, golf, etc. for one's pleasures, there was no need for this couple to seek out anything...

We stayed one night at this hotel. Room rates very reasonable. Hotel and room are really dated. Flashback to the 70's/80's. Room was large with mini fridge & large balcony. Nice heated pools. The diner had really good food that was reasonably priced. Awesome $6 margaritas!

Apparently CA law requires public jacuzzis to be chlorinated so all of the pools here are. In my view, the smell of chlorine ruins completely the experience. The upstairs rooms are pretty run down but the downstairs rooms aren't too bad (but pricey considering what's being offered). The front staff are pathetic at customer service and the computer system messed...
