One night stay due to work at my house, so I was an in town guest. The casita king rooms are, by the hotel's admission, old and in disrepair. The room was very big. But it smelled unpleasant, sort of a sour, mildew smell.. Aesthetically, the room was not worth even half of the $200 charged -- a ridiculous amount for a room in this condition. It looks like no repairs have been made for some time. The bathroom floor was scratched and shabby.Grout in the bathroom was crumbling, missing in parts, just really needed repair. Doors, cabinets and walls all have damage on the edges. The stairs leading up to the casita king had stucco walls that were crumbling, made one wonder if the stairs were safe. The views from the bathroom & bedroom were of trash and roof top AC units with the mountains in the far distance. It was surprising that the room was even rented out to guests. All that said, I understand there are nice rooms on property, the ones that are new and renovated. The grounds are beautiful, the Cielo's restaurant is always good. The location is also excellent. Just make sure you are very careful about your room selection.
