We stayed at the Cabrillo Inn, the first week of August. I had first stayed in this hotel, for my sisters' wedding, back in 1976 when I was just a teen. I was very thankful that not too much had changed in those years, other than the second pool being replaced by a garden. I must say, I had really liked the two pools, but the garden was a nice place to relax, read a book or just look at the beautiful ocean across the street.
The place was just as clean as I remembered it. I've been a clean freak my whole life! We really enjoyed our stay here and will return again and again as long as we can, if we don't get too priced out of the market with the remodel. I hope they don't do too much because this place is perfect just the way it is! It might need some new carpet and bedspreads, but that's about it. I hope they don't do away with the great bathroom counter space or the room darkening curtains. You just can't get that anymore. That's what makes this place so great and unique!
I couldn't believe how quiet the rooms were! I used to live up the street from this hotel and know how many times the train comes by. I never heard it once in the 5 days we were there. I was very impressed!
I really enjoyed the morning coffee and breakfast. Lupe was so sweet every morning and opened the gate for me when my hands were full. She always offered to make fresh coffee, when it was getting low and was very gracious with directions and tips for enjoying Fiesta, the entire time we were there. My whole family loved the fresh baked goodies from the bakery. It was a great start to the day. Who needs "cooked breakfast" when you have this??
The office staff (Ryan, Brandon, and Chad) were all very nice and helpful. The maids kept the room very neat and tidy! We loved this place and hope it won't change too much. Remember, people keep coming back for a reason. If you want a great hotel at a great price, this is the place. Thanks Cabrillo Inn, our 16th Anniversary was Grand!! We plan to be back next year for our 17th. PLEASE DON'T CHANGE TOO MUCH!
