We requested a crib for our 8 1/2 month old child when we booked. We called in the afternoon on the day that we were scheduled to arrive and they confirmed our crib. We arrived at 9:30PM and no crib! They had some play pens that were all broken and a hazard to any child. They did not even offer to find us another place to stay or pay for us to stay at another nearby hotel that evening, and the woman at the front desk told us that she had to leave at 10:00PM when her shift was over. We were stranded and decided to drive back to Los Angeles, almost 200 miles, that night. The next day we called the President, Larry Pearlman, he wanted to know how I got his phone number, he did not offer to resolve the problem and told us he can't help us and to contact the Operations Manager, Vicky. This woman did not return any of our calls. The Ocotillo Lodge is a joke. Don't waste your time. They're not even a hotel, they are a Home Owners Association run by inexperienced and unprofessional people.
