On the way home from San Francisco, the radio was playing Hotel California and suddenly we passed this hotel as the sun was going down. It looked like the album cover so we decided to pull off and investigate. What a treasure. The price was just under the other local hotels and the room was nice. As we checked in we learned the management and much of the staff is very new. The young man at the desk was quick, friendly, and professional. The room he gave us was facing the amazing center gardens with two large lighted fountains. As dark came over the property, the bell tower lit up and the huge tiled courtyard was romantic to walk in. We discovered a cocktail lounge next to the restaurant. The restaurant was closed and I guess is opening for dinners very soon, but the bar was open. The bartender was also friendly and entertaining.
Before we walked out, we met the manager and found out why all the staff we met was so nice and helpful. He could not have been more of a host and is from Scotland, making him a fun character. The rest of the night was restful, even with the location next to the freeway. We had no issues in our room and you can tell they are really working to make this hotel better if you read the reviews from the past. It could use some updating and hope the owner will invest into that.
We are going to make a point to using this as our stopping point, as we go back and forth to San Francisco about every months and are looking forward to seeing the changes as they happen. I would recommend staying here and getting a courtyard view room.
