We stayed at west meadow suites. Nice and quiet area, easy access to trail also. The staff were helpful. The only problem was the hight of bed. The mattress was really nice but it was not supposed to be on top of a regular box, it should be on a thin box. I traveled with my parents, they had time...

Hi, We stayed in the bottom unit, Eloquence, which was a two bedroom 'suite'--My son was touring Cal Poly and we thought it would be a nice place to stay for a couple of days while touring the college campus. Location was good. Grounds are very green and the front desk was very nice and helpful. So, upon checking in,...

We stayed in Serenity and we absolutely loved our 2 day getaway. Very private and the service was on point. Whenever we needed a ride to our car, etc. the staff was quick, efficient and courteous! The bed was a little to high. We enjoyed being close to Pismo Beach and all the restaurants.

This was a great place to stay. We were 2 adults and 2 young teens and we all had a really nice time. Yoga in the morning, walks, bike rides, hot tubs and lots of good food options near by. Would recommend to anyone needing a nice break.

Hi there, I am the customer living in "fantasy" Room (148) on April 16th - April 17th. In the early morning of April 17th, it was raining. The window of the room close to the hot spring tub was leaking. I put my clothes on the bench next to the window the night before, and they were all wet! Since...

When we first saw the room I thought it was awesome, separate living room, nice large bedroom, large dual sink bath with large shower, wet bar area in the entry, private patio deck with private...

The service was excellent and resort was a wonderful place. I did notice in the room there were huge flies stuck to the walls that were killed but not removed. The room was over-all clean but that was something that you guys may want to take care of when cleaning the rooms. Over-all I will definitely be coming back and...

Amazing location and the rooms were really nice. My only complaint would be the bed box frame was metal and made a terrible noise every time someone moved. I slept terrible. We complained and there was nothing they could do. Unfortunately spending $400 per night and sleeping bad without being compensated was unfortunate. Not sure I'll stay at the resort...
