This is my first time back in about 10 years. They have renovated the rooms and it seems a lot more spacious. I like the open style closet so there are no doors. They put a lot of thought into the redesign. They have hooks on the wall so you can hang your coat or bags. Had a great shower... More

We spent one night at Chaminade and it was great! Super clean. Staff was friendly, the pool and spa are super nice. We loved the food and eating with the view over the ocean was awesome! Highly recommend.

As some of the other reviews said it was very overpriced. Additionally the hit you with an extra $35 charge for a room service fee. When I called and asked what it was for the concierge had the audacity to say it was"for the complementary valet parking and room cleaning". Most ridiculous explanation ever. Stay away from this 'resort' they... More

The nicest thing about this hotel is the pool. Other than that, it's completely overpriced. The walls are thin and the bathroom needed upkeep (broken fixtures, chipped paint, dirty shower head). The grounds are lovely and it's a tranquil location but I was surprised the rooms weren't nicer for the cost.

Dear LGPH510, Thank you for taking the time to review our property, although it sounds like we missed the mark on meeting your expectations regarding price point. Perhaps visiting us in the off-season will allow for a better price point and opportunity to utilize all of our resort amenities...which no other resort/hotel has in town.

A quiet resort in a wooded property off the beaten path. After a hectic couple of days spent at Car Week in Monterey, we looked forward to our quiet accommodations at the Chaminade. A few glitches such as keys not working on day 2 and no maid service until we asked for it. There's a corporate seminar feel to the... More

This is an older property with a recent renovation. Our room was very nice. Spacious with comfortable beds. The staff seems young and inexperienced. The core of the resort is very good but execution not so much. Staff needs training to bring this resort to the next level. We paid an extra $35/day for resort fee but really didn't use... More

Staying at the Chaminade was definitely a highlight on this trip. It is a beautiful off of the beaten path place. Recently remodeled rooms that were very large and the balcony opened up to a forest!
