Lilijacket77, Thanks for the compliments on the vibe and the event. It's true we have a surf inspired, music centric and fun vibe. Things have certainly changed with the introduction of the Kimpton Goodland. Thanks for staying! I hope you were able to try Outpost...More

So, a friend pointed out this hotel to me. It has a retro vibe, which I like, because I'm older, but clearly this property is targeting Millennials. They have beer tastings and there is a DJ spinning loud (though sometimes enjoyable) music at the pool...More

Michael, We appreciate the feedback, Michael, although I'm not sure I agree with the Millennial Management note. However, sure- there's much more inexpensive places to stay in other towns up coast like Pismo and Avila. Certainly those markets have different levels of demand than we...More

This hotel is the epitome of BoBo goodness. It had such a great retro feel (authentic, not kitschy). The DJ at the pool (Until 5PM Saturday) was KILLIN' it on the turntable with song after song of "That's my JAM!". The bar and bar staff...More

For how much they are charging they need to do some overall upgrades to the property. Broken ice machines, poor plumbing, uncomfortable beds, see through window treatments, and a door that you had to shove to lock. No thanks!More
