This Inn is not living up to its beautiful surroundings. My wife and I decided to stay here after our wedding at one of the local wineries.
It was a very hot day and after we checked in and got to our room we realized that there was no air conditioning. We looked for a temperature control in the room and there was none! We figured that the inn did not have air conditioning (hard to believe for Livermore). We almost suffocated overnight.
The next morning, when we made a comment about how hot it was in our room, we were told that there was air conditioning but that it was "centrally" controlled by the the inn's staff. The person that checked us in had simply forgotten to turn it on! And they would not even give us a discount for the inconvenience.
Other downers: the pool was dirty and freezing and the water in the adjacent hot tub was not hot at all. To be fair, the breakfast in the morning was good. That's about it.
Needless to say, we are not staying here again.
