We stayed here for a few days as part of a very memorable round trip starting in San Francisco, exploring Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks, then taking the Big Sur coastline back to San Francisco. This stop was thoroughly enjoyed by the entire family. The hotel has a number of very good restaurants with nice ambiance. The grounds are beautiful. Our room was clean and contemporary - yes, there are fancier hotel rooms and perhaps the rooms are "4-star" rather than 5, but our overall experience was still excellent. We really enjoyed sitting on the outdoor patio late in the evening by the fire, for dessert and drinks. The outdoor pool was very inviting but busy, as one would expect during a heat wave.
One experience I would highly recommend for families, is the "Summerdale" cookout (pics attached). We were really impressed with the effort to make this a real experience for our kids. There were staff people assisting kids with archery practice, panning for gold, and a fire with s'mores. I could listen to the banjo player for hours - he is a talented musician and story teller who clearly loves what he does. All of the staff were very friendly. The food selection - lots of BBQ choices, salads and peach cobbler - was perfect for this setting.
As much as I enjoyed the hotel, the staff and level of service was most striking. They were all courteous, efficient, and most importantly genuinely friendly, which made our stay really enjoyable.
