Place looked nice, but I can't really say, because they gave away my room! I made a reservation and paid a booking fee several months in advance. Then we showed up here at dinner time with our kids (ages 3, 5, 8 and 10), tired from our trip and ready to just check-in and eat. But guess what- they had a big group show up earlier in the day, so they decided to give away our room!
They sent us off to another hotel (Dos Pinos, I think), about 15 minutes away. Dos Pinos had no restaurant on site and was located on a busy road where we had traffic noise all night.
The receptionist at Dos Pinos said this happens frequently because Robledal frequently overbooks and sends people away. You can give Robledal a try- it sure looks nice, but be prepared to be turned away at the door!
As Jerry Seinfeld said- "Anyone can just take the reservation... It's HOLDING the reservation that is the important part!"
