My husband and I stayed at Sycamore MS Resort for two nights. We feel we took advantage of much of what the resort and surrounding areas have to offer. We rented bikes from the resort and rode to nearby Avila Beach. We drove to San Luis Obispo for shopping, lunch, and beer tasting. We played out by the resort pool....

It was fantastic to hear what a lovely stay you had and that you enjoyed your suite and mineral spring hot tub. (I will check into those couch pillows, however). We truly appreciate your outstanding review.

Wonderful place to relax and unwind. The private tub was nice and hot, the sulphur waters were healing, and the staff was so friendly and accommodating. My room, legendary, was quiet and very spacious. I had dinner and breakfast at the restaurant and the food was tasty. The price was $300 for one night including the food and resort fees,...

The location and facilities were impressive. The hot springs are magical and the hiking out the back door was a great amenity. Unfortunately, the staff were unfriendly and unhelpful. The restaurant was decent but not impressive.

The menu and chef seems to change regularly but the menu was pretty attractive. We ate twice in the front restaurant with the bar and enjoyed the salads as well as...

During the black out I went for the flashlight. No batteries in either. No hair dryer in a 400.00 room. Hot not working properly. Repair guy tried very hard.

I'm sorry you had to experience the power outage and the subsequent blackout. I'll let the spa know you had a great spa treatment. In regards to the other issues, there is no excuse. I'm sending your review to the appropriate departments. We certainly hope you'll return soon. Do contact me directly and I'll make sure everything is in place....
