Reviewed December 8, 2012 via mobile

1. The cabin was $164 per night and had a heater that roared like a Cessna so you couldn't hear yourself think, let alone sleep

2.The cabin's mini blinds were so dirty that they looked like they had been dipped in dirt while wet

3. WORST: The hot spring pool is not a pool but merely a 19 inch puddle, so you can only soak outstretched legs and pelvis.

4. Cabin had no cups or glasses for water or coffee.

5. Pleasant staff

Thank you for staying with us and for your feedback. The cleanliness of the blinds will be addressed right away. The depth of the mineral spring is indeed 2 ft at all times. I am sorry to here you did not enjoy lounging in it as many do. Speaking of the hot pool we are in the process of resurfacing the springs with marble tile. This will be complete in 2 weeks! I will be sure and let me staff know they did a good job. It would be great to have a chance to make your next stay a better one. Please feel free to ask for me if you decide to try us out again.

Best Regards,

Tyler Anderson
General Manager

Nice, relaxing sulfer hot springs. Diverse crowd, friendly staff, we met so many fun people. I highly recommend it! Not too far from the beach, if you are vacationing in California- hit it up! The hot springs are a fun place to swim, kept the kids busy for hours and they slept like rocks.

My boyfriend and I visited the springs one evening last year. It was cool outside, so we definitely enjoyed our visit! The natural sulfur smell is a little strange at first, but you get used to it. A very private experience, we will definitely be returning.

This is NOT a resort, it is essentially a trailer park with space for tents and mobile homes for rent. The trailers are old and you are expected to bring your own linens. Things are generally fairly clean. Could be cleaner, but when stuff gets old, it looks dirty even when cleaned - especially at the beach. If you go in thinking you are one step up from camping, you will have set your expectations appropriately.

The pool and "spring" we're nice. Where they lost 2 points were a general lack of customer service. Several lights were out and never replaced durring our stay. Also the front door would not lock until we got our tools out and fixed it. The tv was also broken. The front desk people are generally defensive or uncaring. The pool staff were helpful though.

Room Tip: Don't get a trailer (cabin) number less than 10. 1-9 are right on the road and you do get the traffic noise at night. Week days are better - less crowded and more quiet.

Stayed in a "cabin". No fitted sheets on the mattresses, no second sheet on top, just the dirty comforter. Moldy, stained shower curtain and hair in tub. Towels were nasty and falling apart. Front desk guy was rude. So gross and disgusting. The pool and mineral springs "pool" area was run down and dirty!
