Well, I have to be honest. I'm really loyal to a place I like and we've been staying here on trips since nearly the time the place was built, as a nicer option to the old-style highway 101 motels. It's been a few years but I was surprised that the Baechtel Creek Inn had re-invented itself as an upscale inn and spa which it is not. We paid a $20 premium for a higher-end king room in the "adult" section. I appreciated the quiet but the room was just another motel room and not all that nice. OK, it smelled nice but beige pile carpet doesn't do it. On my "would you walk barefoot in this room" scale it was barely a 5 out of 10. For those new to my reviews, 1 on the scale is hiking boots and heavy socks and 10 is operating-room clean. All attempts to make the room look upscale fell flat, mostly cheap heavy furniture with no seating or table space. When we got into the room there was a "sit print" on the bedspread where it looked like maybe the housekeeper (or someone) maybe sat and watched the news on TV for a break. The ice bucket was high on a shelf out of sight and reach and the coffee pot in the bathroom (rapidly becoming one of my chief irritations) does not say "upscale". One real irritation was that there were no sheer curtains on the window. It was either blacked out or wide open. Not good. A/C was noisy so we cooled the room and shut the unit off for the night. We skipped breakfast, which was not "full hot breakfast" as advertised and went uptown.Staff was very very nice, though, which is always a plus. Please, guys, do what you do best. I want the old Baechtel Creek back.
