Great fitness center with plentiful equipment. The overall lighting in the room needs to be improved. The bath lighting is inadequate... need brighter lighting over the vanity & some lighting over the tub( there is almost no light there once the shower curtain is pulled). I am speaking as an interior designer. It also needs more soundproof doors & soundproofing between the floors.

It's a beautiful setting on top of hill. Nice short hiking trail. Wish they had microwave in room to heat food! Quiet setting

Nowhere on the website stated they were renovating and the hotel restaurateur was closed. We struggled to figure out where to eat. We picked this place so we could just stay there, dine, eat, relax and not drive anywhere once we landed. this was a one night stay and we had to be back in SJ for work and leave at 5:30 AM for work The hot tub did not work that night until 7 pm, and the refrigerator had to b ring another one to get cold
