Beautiful grounds and accommodations in the midst of the vineyard. Ate grapes off the vine. Watched the balloons every morning. Just a terrific stay.

Nice Resort but unfortunate incident.

Pros: Quiet, nice rooms and breakfast is outdoors next to the pool. Rooms open to a patio overlooking the vineyards.
Cons: I would have the cleaning people report any repairs that need to be done In rooms. Our toilet paper holder was hanging on by a thread.
Location: Great location! Plenty of winerys to visit along with casinos and if you like golf there are a couple of courses nearby.
We stayed for one night. After coming back late from dinner and visiting Pachanga we were able to unlock the entry door but couldn't open our room door. We tried & tried both electronic keys with no luck. Unfortunately our room was a long walk back to the front desk. My husband explained that we couldn't get into our room so he came back with new keys, again the keys didn't work so he went back a second time, again keys don't work, well now he is going back a 3rd time as I waited in the entry way of our room. As I opened the door to get air a handyman appeared with a master key to let me in then my husband came with the front desk mgr. on the golf cart. NONE of the keys worked and my husband said the mgr. for some reason remembered something was wrong with this room... YA THINK! Need SOP for rooms maybe make notations in computer. Upon checkout we reminded the front desk not to rent this room until they fixed the door locks. The Mgr. felt bad so he did gave my husband a free bottle of wine 🍷

Huge Bungalows but mediocre customer service

While the bungalows are huge and newly remodeled, you feel very removed from everything on the property. The front desk was not overly helpful and kept saying, "since you booked through Expedia, you cannot have XYZ." It was more No's then Yes's with the staff. There was no free bottle of wine, newspaper or shuttle to the Southcoast Winery as advertised. The rooms are hard to heat and cool since the ceilings are 20 feet high. They really need a restaurant if there is no shuttle to SouthCoast. The jacuzzi area was trashed in the morning. Overall, they should spend less on furnishings and more on customer service.

Beautiful Get A Way

Pros: The pool, staff, location, and cleanliness. Nice and quiet.
Cons: The only thing is that we had read the reviews about the complimentary bottle of wine and found out that it is only if you book directly with them.
Location: Right in the middle of the vineyard so spent most of the time relaxing including watching a beautiful sunset on our patio. Morning walks too!
We stayed on our first trip ever to Temecula. It was beautiful. We were especially impressed with the lady in the tasting room. She was so professional and really knew how to read us!

Great place to stay

Pros: Very quite and secluded.
Cons: Nothing, I was Ver happy
Location: Wine tasting and hot air balloon rides
Carter Estates is a great place to stay. The bungalow room was spacious and very quite. Just stayed one night. Was there for a wedding on Friday night. Arrived early hoping to be able to check in and get ready for the wedding. The staff was very nice and we were able to check in. The next morning we woke up and had breakfast at the grill. OMG, the Crab Cake Eggs Benedict Dill hollandaise sauce, roasted marble potatoes was amazing. I will be staying here the next time I am in Temeculs.

Wine Country

The facility is still new and growing, but the rooms and not lacking at all. No matter what side you stay there is a vineyard view. The beds was plush and comfortable with room in the suit to feel like a nice size apartment.

Absolutely Amazing We stayed here after the July 4th holiday weekend and absolutely loved it. The customer service was spot on. Megan was incredible with her extensive wine knowledge and graciously gave us many recommendations of what vineyards to try out. She greatly made our wine county experience amazing! These rooms are BEAUTIFUL! A little high class condo with your own private patio that opens up to a gorgeous vineyard. The bathroom was even more spectacular! The tub was large enough to fit the both of us and the dual head shower was devine. I highly recommend this new place before word gets out and it becomes the popular spot!
