“You could not pay me to stay there again!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2010

This was my first time visiting Vallecito Lake. Some friends of mine go often and I was very excited to be meeting up with them. I found the web site on the internet showing nice, clean, pretty cabins available, VERY DECEIVING! I arrived ready to relax and very pleased with the how beautiful the area was. When I checked in the man helping me was very unfriendly and rude. The first cabin I was put in was awful, absolutely filthy, had a heavy smell of propane and the toilet was leaking all over the bathroom. I didn't even want to bring my bags into the room. After complaining to the rude man in the office, (who turned out to be the owner) I was put into another cabin which turned out to be worse! Heavily run down and filthy, the hot water heater was leaking profusely, would not stay lit and looked as if it had caught on fire more than once. I found a black widow spider on the bed and the coffee pot reeked of urine. Complaining to the owner did no good, he acted as though i was such a pain, interrupting his beer drinking and wasting his time. Bottom line this is no resort! I ended my supposed to be 'relaxing ' vacation more stressed out than it began . This place is down right disgusting!

This resort was beyond run down, it looked like it should be torn down. Dirty, needing many repairs. My advice would be to choose someplace else.
