Disappointed

Waaaay to many kids. Walls are thin. Although not a sell out weekend we had a crummy location on the property. Also upgrades are needed.

Very nice.

The courtyard is beautiful; it feels like you're at a resort. The restaurant was excellent. The food was great for dinner, and the staff was very accommodating. The free breakfast was good. It was a small buffet. My only problem was that I was put in a room RIGHT NEXT to a group of young men who were drinking and smoking and having a good time. Unfortunately, I was there for business, so the front desk (with only a little hassle) moved me to a quieter location. The hotel lounge had a cheesy lounge band, but the bar was filled and it looked like everyone was having a good time. I wished that I could've hung out!

Exceeded expectations

Well-kept attractive property with many amenities. Excellent (really !) restaurant on site. Generous happy hour specials on food and drinks. Happy hour extended on big sports nights. Better than average complimentary breakfast. Several casual restaurants within walking distance. Close to Sea Cliff Beach. Easy access to Rt. 1 and, therefore, central coast attractions.

Quick Stay for Work

I enjoyed the hotel for the most part and Aptos is a fantastic town. I stayed here because I didn't want to stay in Gilroy/Morgan Hill for work so I just drove the 45min to stay by the beach. It was worth it because Aptos is a cute little town and there were several selections for nice meals. My only complaint is I requested a Non-Smoking room and was placed in a Smoking room so I had to deal with the disgusting smell. Other then that it was definitely worth the value.

A Comedy of Errors

Booked King non-smoking. The hotel put us in a non-smoking room with 2 smaller beds. When calling front desk staff to correct the situation, the staff placed blame on using a third party, or bitz, to book the room. They stated we were guaranteed a reservation not a room. After much discussion, they upgraded us to a suite. After being told someone would meet us at the new room with the key, we needed to call to again to get the staff member to bring it. The room was very nice. The room was to include a continental breakfast. The yellow flier with instructions given to us with our key stated breakfast hours 07:00 - 10:00. We arrived at 09:30. There was no food out. Staff stated breakfast ended at 09:00 due to Mother's Day. The staff stated there was a flier in the room; there was no such flier. The staff were completely uninterested in proving what was agreed upon when booking the room and gave us no breakfast nor compensation. I would not recommend this hotel. Rooms were fine. The customer service was poor.

Enjoyable Quick Stay

The great reviews were right! Our room was very comfortable, with a nice balcony overlooking a beautiful big garden. Following the garden path around the inviting pool and hot tub (that we enjoyed in the morning!), we crossed a darling footbridge over a koi pond full of big fish that follow you around the pond. Charming...and the kids loved it. Adjacent is the restaurant /bar that had a terrific band the night we were there. It seemed to be a locals hang out, with a lot of people getting up to dance swing and freestyle. The whole thing was really entertaining to watch and hear. A full hot buffet (complimentary) breakfast with lots of choices was served in the same space in the morning. My family of four really enjoyed the food and our stay in general. I recommend it.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

We spent the afternoon prior to our arrival kayaking Elkhorn Slough at Moss Landing. The 2 hour tour was outstanding, and is just 30 min south of the hotel along the coast. We saw hundreds of seals & otters and even got to touch a jellyfish and hold a sea star the guide caught. There are a few companies that do tours there. It's an experience we won't forget!
