I found this resort online not having known anything about it before. I picked it for location and price. I was pleasantly surprised to find it has a lot more going for it than just this. Fantastic views outside my room window of a redwood forest - no need to close the drapes for privacy! The room was small but comfortable - it would have been a little cramped for more than one person. Bathroom was nice enough and it had a lighted vanity mirror (5 stars on that!). I didn't really take advantage of any of the spa or resort amenities although I did sit by the pool for an hour so I was kind of annoyed by the $25/day resort fee. Maybe there should be a checklist of facilities that people do use and get charged accordingly, rather than one charge fits all. I had dinner outside at Linwood's. It was a lovely nght, view was nice and the food was pretty good. The server was very nice and helpful. However, I wanted a half order of an appetizer and was told they don't do that. Why not???
