Stayed here one night while conducted business in San Luis Obispo. Enjoyed being in Avila Beach area. Property is nice, facilities are a bit worn. Real Cali feel on the Central Coast. Would stay here again

I have stayed many times and love the ambiance and tranquility that you find at this hotel. However, we ate brunch on Sunday and the server at the restaurant was very rude, he rolled his eyes when we asked for condiments for the meal. Overall he had the air of being annoyed with us and he made me feel like...

Being a local in Paso Robles, I wanted to find a fun overnight with my boyfriend locally for his birthday. We had never stayed at Sycamore before, but friends had told me they loved it.

However, we were so lucky a friend told us about this place!! There is nothing second rate about Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort. It was a heavenly destination for our romantic mini-moon....

Room was very nice, but getting hot water out of the sink taps was next to impossible - even after running both full-blast for several minutes, the temperature was barely lukewarm. I didn't attempt a shower during my stay, so I'm not sure how that would have worked out. On the other hand, though, the hot tub was amazing; the...

The grounds here are incredible! Loved the private patio and hot tub. I was very disappointed at how outdated the room was for the price point. Bathroom shower is in need of repair. Furniture very beat.

There was no spa water in the lobby like I had remembered. Instead there was bottled water and chocolate cookies, which was not appealing. Everything was very expensive. The grounds were very beautiful, The Yoga place was awesome.
