I found the hotel very comfortable and the staff excellent. Dylan was most helpful. The room was clean and the bed excellent and the rooms very quiet. I would highly recommend this hotel. The pool is great too!

My wife and I usually stay in a resort, but the Crowne Plaza was excellent. Rooms were comfortable along with the bed. Check in was quick. Had a nice restaurant with breakfast and dinner and all the expected amenities. Only thing we didn't like was the $12 per night parking fee. What the......?

We stayed at Crown Plaza on Friday Night, July 8 and had a wonderful time. First, Tony, one of the managers helped us with our room which was located near the pool.

We stayed two nights. We found hotel location to be excellent. The rooms are well soundproofed and the beds are extremely comfortable. Ask for room on a high floor facing the pool. The views are magnificent with mountains in the distance. If you are on the opposite side, facing El Camino Real (the highway )you risk getting a room that... More

Much better choices available for the same money. They don't allow check in until 3 PM, even when they claim there are no rooms available. They allowed me and two other guests to sit in the lobby for over one hour until housekeeping allegedly completed rooms. Magically, at exactly 2:59 PM, three reams became available that we could check into.... More

Stayed for a week during a business trip. Room is quit big, but dark - not enough lightning. Comfortable bed, acceptable bathroom. AC unit is quite noisy. Good pool and hot tub - although it won't harm to clean them more often.
