We apologize for your less than exemplary stay. We strive to provide a seamless and relaxing experience. We are working on the guest room floor and will be updating the laminate to carpet in the near future which will improve some of the sound issues. We appreciate your feedback and will use it to provide better service in the immediate future.

We apologize for your less than exemplary stay. We strive to provide a seamless and relaxing experience. A less than accommodating associate is inexcusable as we are in the hospitality industry. We appreciate your feedback and will use it to provide better service in the immediate future.

While the property was very nice, not much was included in the cost of our stay as it usually is in most other hotels (ie. breakfast, wifi/internet, etc.). Additionally, the faux wood linoleum flooring in our room (#308) was bubbling everywhere. Also, the pool was inaccessible due to some work that was being done on it. We were notified of this via email a day ahead of time, but we didn't want to change our reservation at that point. All in all, a LOT to pay for much less than where we stayed the night before in San Luis Obispo.

great hotel

Although the check in time for the hotel was 4pm we arrived a bit early, 1:30pm, they did have a room available for us. We were able to check in early, our room was great and even though the hotel seemed to be towards the end of a remodel, everything was great. We had dinner that night in the lounge/bar area. My wife had rib eye steak and I had what was called street alley tacos. The food was great. The next morning we had the buffet breakfast which we had purchased along with our room, it was also wonderful. The staff at the hotel were all very friendly and courteous. My wife said that this was the best place we had ever stayed at. I would recommend this to anyone and it will be where we stay the next time we go to this location. 5 stars

A nightmare

We got to the hotel and noticed right away it was under renovation. I asked to be put we're the noise level and dust wouldn't reach me. Unfortunately it was bad all over. The construction started from 8am till 6pm. There was banging on the walls electrical appliances going. Construction workers talking And walking like someone was chasing them. It was horrible. We got no rest. The worst part is Travelocity nevered advised me of this issue or I would have chosen a different hotel. Very unprofessional. I spoke with the front desk in the hotel he said they told everyone. But Travelocity did not disclose that to their travelers. Never again

Monterey to Buellton Bike Tour end

Pros: the staff - so friendly
We rented a one-way car from this hotel and drove it to Monterey where we started our 3 day 250 mile trip down the beautiful Big Sur coast and onto wine country. What a treat to end up here. The staff was wonderful. We enjoyed a beer by the outdoor fireplace before soaking in the jacuzzi. We had a great dinner in their restaurant. The bed was super comfortable...ahhhhh. The breakfast included in the room rate was much better than we expected - made to order omelets, lots of extras and good coffee - and again a great, friendly staff.
