The pool area is super comfortable with misters going to keep you cool. There is a great kitchen that is fully stocked that you have complete access to that makes preparing a meal... More

Where to begin! This hotel is amazing!!! From the moment we arrived, we were greeted by the owner, Larry with a warm and inviting greeting. Very hospitable. The initial call placed was assisted by Betty, such a sweet lady who took all my information and interests and relayed them to Larry. We met Mike on Saturday, another outstanding person! Everyone...

Everytime we walk through that metal gate we feel like we're home. From the welcome hugs with the glass of wine or can of beer to the bottle of champagne on ice in your room you feel it. Larry, Jay, Betty and Mike are your gracious hosts and so much fun. We have met people from all over the world... More

Hands down, the coziest, most friendly place I have stayed. The owners and staff are exceptional, to the point I consider them friends now! The rooms are lovely, clean and well stocked. The landscaping is lush and beautiful surrounding the pool. Can't wait to visit again!

This was my second trip to Hotel California for a girls get-away weekend. From the moment you walk into the courtyard, every single care just fades away. It is so peaceful and calming. My favorite spot is the seating area outside of my poolside room sipping my wine, reading, listening to the water fountain and watching the humming birds! I... More
