Overall Score4.0/ 5
Hotel staff was always helpful and friendly whenever something was needed. Hotel abs room were clean. Only two complaints: the gardening out and around the building was all dead (you're in California, how hard is it to keep plants alive?) and the pool hours were silly closing at 8pm? Also maybe invest in a hot tub. otherwise it was a nice stay.
