Should you be blessed with a room on the back wall, just know that you’re positioned directly over the pool and hot tub. These areas do not close until 11pm. So if you are a person who values a restful night, you should probably pack ear plugs especially during holiday party

Clean, friendly, great amenities. Restaurant on site, weight room, pool, atrium is great for group mingling. Location is great for locals to celebrate special occasions. Great as a business meeting location, self contained and centrally located.

First disclaimer: This was in July 2017. Tripadvisor did not let me choose a date before a year ago but this review is so important for me I am going to risk bending the rules, since this was the worst experience we had ever had in a hotel in our life! First of all the hotel is

We thank you for your review which is very important to us. We are very sorry to hear about your experience here. Currently our bar is a non smoking bar and it is illegal to smoke in the bar by California law, so I know that experience won't happen in the future as long as the law stands. So even though your weren't in our enclosed bar and appearantly you are saying that the smell of smoke made it to your room on the first floor, then we apologize for that. I see that the staff did try to make your room not smell like smoke but it sounds like it wasn't satisfactory for you and once again and we apologize for that. Also dealing with the power outage, the hotel and the city has no control over that. This is strictly a PG&E controlled situation. And it is true, us like almost all other small businesses don't have a back up power system to handle all the needs that a hotel our size with all of our rooms and restaurant, and swimming pool and spa and fitness center for a situation which normally doesn't happen (thank goodness) for the very expensive system it would cost to put in. Our staff did call emergency responders as you have mentioned but it was decided by them since this was not a life or death situation to wait for the electricity to come back on. I am sorry to hear of this unfortunate timing of using the elevator when this situation occurred and upset your child with your husband in the elevator. I see that you mentioned that no money back was offered, but in the next sentence you said that you were given 10% off of your room. Once again thank you for your feed back and giving us a chance to address this review.

Despite the bland exterior the interior of the hotel is beautiful and the game-room is great. The rooms are clean and very comfortable. My only (very small) complaint is that although the restaurant food is good (and clean restrooms!) the breakfast is not complimentary.

Nice hotel. Good rates. We got a suite. The lake view really isn't that great. You can barely see the lake. Great view of taco Bell and auto zone. haha. The pool bottom looked rough, so we passed on that. The jacuzzi door was locked. Nice restaurant inside. Pretty good food.

Thank you for your nice rating and your review. I am sorry to see that our pool was not inviting and when the door is closed on the Jacuzzi that just means that we were treating it for a couple of hours. Glad you enjoyed are new beds, but I see that day the water pressure sounds like it was low and we apologize for that. We will let the maintenance man know of your comment also. So we are delighted all in all as you said "It was a pretty good stay."
