Reviewed yesterday NEW

I have mixed feelings about our stay. It was my first time at the resort. It was slightly less charming than I was hoping for. The buildings are very much in the style of a La Quinta Inn. There's probably an architectural term for it, but I'm not familiar with it. Basically, the buildings don't have any charm, but are...

Blackout due to inclement weather. No power since early morning up to checkout time. No lights, no hot mineral tub available during that time, not even regular hot water. Backup power seemed available only in the lobby and the adjacent restaurant, but why not for the lodgings too? I don't want to be too harsh because it's weather related and...

We came here based on a recommendation from a friend, we enjoyed our stay, the property was quiet and easy to get to. It's located close to SLO, Pismo Beach, and Avila Beach making it easy to eat out and shop. We went during a storm and it didn't effect our stay much.

First off, the staff on the whole was very accommodating. But there were a few things that were just, well, off. We had two issues with the kitchen, the worst being a frittata that was only partially cooked--the egg on the inside was raw. The waiter didn't even apologize. As for the room itself: The deck with the hot tub...

First, thank you for letting us know that our staff was very accommodating. It appears you stayed in one of our standard mineral spring room. We've already completely renovated almost every one-bedroom spa suite on property, and now we are renovating the standard mineral springs rooms--including the hot tubs. I just shared this review with your chef and will meet...

The rooms are great and the Hot Tub is amazing. The restaurant is VERY over priced and not very good of food. The staff is all very friendly and helpful. The room smelled funny but appeared very clean.

Fabulous you found the rooms great and hot tub amazing! I'm very disappointed that you didn't enjoy our restaurant. Our menus have such a wide range of selections to fit everyone's taste and budget. But so glad that you found the staff friendly and helpful. Please contact me directly about the restaurant, just reference this review and date. Thank you...

Everything about my stay was perfect. From the room accommodations to my experience at the restaurant. I would recommend this property to anyone. You definitely get more than what you pay for at this resort.

Request to have two broken vertical Blinds replaced was mentioned by stopping by the desk once. The other time was by a desk phone call. I had to do a temporary fix myself. The order to repair never happened. The room spa outside is visible by people walking near spa wood slates. Only a criss cross wood pattern and able...

You stayed in our standard mineral spring rooms. Currently, we are in the process of completely renovating the standard mineral spring rooms, inside and out. The rooms already completed are beautiful! We look forward to your return. Please ask for the renovated standard mineral spring rooms or the renovated one-bedroom spa suites. Thank you.

Great service all around, a little over priced as most of these places are, but the extra costs of room things such as flower petals was ridiculous, and it was a little loud next to the highway until about 11.
