The location of this hotel is beautiful, but the rooms are small and dated. My husband and I were both disappointed in the size of the room given the price we paid. The fridge was in the closet, the windows were super dirty, and the pillows were not good at all. We will not be staying again.

I came to this location because I have visited the resort strictly for the hot tubs before and thought it would be nice to get away from home and have a hot tub in the room that I stay in. So I chose my 6 year anniversary for this and I wasn't really impressed at all. Yes the room was...

I hadn't visited Sycamore Hot Springs since 2013. I went back in late Feb. 2017 with my good friend to celebrate our belated birthday's & what a disappointing 1 night stay it was!!! Don't get me wrong, the massages and the facials were heaven, but left behind my beautiful bathing suit in our bathroom (behind door hook) to clatter call...

The location was nice. We had a few issues with service and for the price we paid, we felt it should've been much better. Our service in the restaurant was mediocre at best, every heater on the patio at the restaurant didn't work, we couldn't get a golf cart to get us back to our room and our coffee pot...

I do agree, little things matter! I'm sorry you didn't have the experience you expected. I will certainly share your review with the restaurant managers. I'm sorry you couldn't get a ride with our bell staff. We always have two or three bell people on, so I'm surprised at that situation. Please do contact me, reference this review and date,...

Maybe it was the time of year but there were so many mosquitos we decided to drive downtown to meet a friend for dinner and use the hot tub when we got back. We arrived and when I went outside to fill more hot water in it was off! They have quiet hours so no hot water till 6am. Just...

As I'm sure you can understand, if we do not have "quiet hours," which are from 11pm to 7am, it would be disruptive for our guests that are sleeping because of the filling of the hot tubs and guests talking in their outdoor patio hot tubs. Mosquitoes are rarely an issue here. When we do have them, we have a...

The rooms were not as advertised on line. The bed was very uncomfortable. The pillows were terrible, the mattress was old and worn. There was no countertop in the bathroom, loud birds outside all night, musty smell.

I'm very sorry that you didn't have the experience you expected. We continually replace our mattresses on a regular time schedule. So I'm surprised to hear this. Though I don't know, I suppose you stayed in our historic standard rooms. We've completely renovated almost all our one-bedroom spa suites, and will soon start on renovating our standard rooms.

Great to have private hot tub. We saw very few people during our visit. Room is small and very ordinary. Thought we were getting a queen bed but got a twin instead. Still overall we enjoy staying here. Grounds are beautiful and Avila Beach is nearby.

Thanks for letting us know that your enjoyed your stay. I'm a bit perplexed however, that you had a twin bed. We only have twins in a very few rooms, and those are used for doubles; that is, for guests that need to separate beds. The only time a couple would get a double bed room is if we were...

My husband and I really had no idea what to expect when we planned a last minute anniversary getaway. We didn't even know the beach was a short bike ride away!
