Okay, I've read the horror stories posted here and while I can *maybe* see where some people are coming from, I definitely don't think this property deserves all the negative reviews. I am a considerable hotel snob (read: I've been known to switch hotel rooms multiple times in a single stay), and I love this place. Granted, it doesn't have the marble floors and multiple eateries and impeccable facilities like the Beverly Hills Hilton, but it is great at what it is: a Spanish-style retreat. Tucked away on a lightly traveled road, this property is reminiscent of old-world Spanish missions. The outside of the buildings and the elevators are antiquated, but I think this adds to the charm. The rooms I have stayed in are well-updates, complete with a small kitchenette, a large screen TV, and a living area. Finally, the staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. Denista, who works the front desk, was kind and helpful throughout my stay, going above and beyond what was required to ensure my stay was pleasant. Bryan (Brian?) and Kay were also friendly and helpful. If you're thinking about staying, do. It's a peaceful and pleasant place.
