We were on the 3rd floor in the main building and the rooms are very nice with a sofa bed also for extra seating. The rooms are clean and very easy to get to. The elevator is small but quick and the parking is free and easy

My husband and I were in town for a wedding in Los Olivos. We were without our son and looked forward to our romantic getaway. The room was outdated, smelly, and very unromantic! The location is great, so I think they get away with drab furnishing and dirty looking amenities. We woke up and left - I didn't even take...
