Hard to say whether this place is taking itself seriously or not. It's like not quite kitschy enough to tell you it's not taking itself seriously, but it's got enough 'Liberace' that it's kind of gaudy. We stayed in the 'Swiss Rock' room. I kept telling my wife it's time to go back to the cave. Or the dungeon. Rock shower was neat, but rock walls and floor made it dark (although thankfully not dank!) Best part of this hotel is the pool--very nice quality, and great to go in at 8am when no kids are screaming. Restaurants are overpriced (esp. the steakhouse), but the cake is awesome. We found some phenomenal restaurants in SLO (and 1/3 the price). "Gift shop", wine shop, and clothes shops have normal crap for higher prices. I felt sorry for all the hotties that work there...long faces, wanting to help people, but nobody's buying anything. what a yucky life.
We always drive by and wonder about this place. Now we've tried it, and don't need to wonder anymore. And doubt we'll spend the (considerable) money for a quick stopover in SLO again...
