We booked a place at Lake Nacimiento Resort and were encouraged to book a mobile home on top of a hill....."lots of privacy, very clean and large enough for our family" was how it was sold to us. After checking in we were excited to see our place for labor day weekend. One look and I was out the door, it was horrible-old, dirty, hot and isolated! They were able to move us to one of their lodges, which looked so much better at first glance. However, it was marginal at best....no updating-dirty pink carpet, all blinds were broken, kitchen was extremely worn and the frig hardly worked. The a/c was barely able to keep the downstairs cool, forget about the loft, the bunkbeds in the loft squeaked every time someone moved, and sitting on the couch was a quick trip to the floor. The unit was supposed to sleep 10 but only had one bathroom. The deck was nice but the table was for 4 people-really?? The wood shingle siding on the unit was so dry, wires running underneath the units attached were exposed, I had sleepless nights worrying about the fire hazard. The A/C compressor units sit under the units and dripped condensation, forming a puddle underneath. We even had resident bats living in the eves and siding-truly the least of our worries. Beautiful view of the lake and lots of deer, which our neighbors thought feeding white donuts to was cool.
Now onto the lake-over crowded, lots of users doing dumb, dangerous things. We were so happy to leave, never to return again!
