I stayed at this hotel once before when it was a 'Golf Resort' but now that it's a Doubletree I noticed the service and cleanliness really faltered. My room wasn't cleaned in 3 days, I had to call the front desk to have my room serviced ( and no, I did not have the 'do-not-disturb' sign on the door. I...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Stayed at the Hotel Karlan. Service was excellent; hotel was great. Few hints - I always check if the hotel has an elevator. Hotel Karlan has an elevator for its three story building (main building) but not in its two story bungalows. If climbing stairs is a problem ask for a first level room. However, they do have help. They...

Room was nice. Although it felt like a bird sanctuary in the mornings. Lots of loud chirping birds every morning. Close to the freeway and restaurants and no charge parking. Staff was great and the cookies were awesome.

I had a suite near the old golf course. Hotel was full but quiet. It use to be connected with a golf course but looks like there is a separation. Small renovations, and they are putting in a new gym and spa. Staff is friendly. Loved my stay. Can't wait til its finished.

My first stay at this hotel was excellent. I was greeted by a gentlemen named Jesus L. He was very professional and kind which was a great first impression of the hotel. He provided me with a helpful map of the hotel layout, ensuring parking and finding my room was easy as possible. Not being from the area, he also...

We chose this hotel because it is pet friendly and close to the home of our family members that we were visiting. It worked out perfectly for location and for having our small dog, Buster Brown, with us.

Hotel Karlan is average rated, we had to haul our luggages all the way back to one of the cottages by ourselves. Breakfast Service was top rated. Rooms were very basic. Hotel in general needs a renovation and facelift to bring it to speed; owners need to invest seriously to make it a compitative hotel.

This hotel is not ADA accessible and was very difficult for my elderly mother to navigate. We could not stay in the original room due to stairs, and the inability to use the luggage cart. I was offered help ONLY AFTER I requested another room (which also had stairs, but only four) and had hauled our luggage to the room....

The hotel staff were awesome especially Patricia our waitress at breakfast. The rooms were large and adequate, we did not really use any amenities. The only reason for a very good instead of Excellent is that TV service was horrible.
