“Spa is terrible”
Reviewed 18 February 2008

Do not even consider a treatment at the poor excuse for a spa at the La Bellasera hotel and spa. The spa consists of one room which is adjacent to the workout facility. You wait for your treatment in the lobby and then are escorted through the workout room to a treatment room. I ordered 2 90-min massages at the same time and was told they could accomodate me. We ended up getting a "couples" massage because they are not really a spa but just single room. Good thing it was with my husband or it would have been terribly uncomfortable. Anyway -- the masseuse spent 30 minutes of 90 actually massaging me, kept dropping hot stones on the floor and walking across the room to get more stones. Terrible, terrible. Please, I urge you not to get a very overpriced treatment at la bellasera spa.

p.s. the hotel is fine

Stayed February 2008

My wife and I spent four nights on the central California coast on a Valentine's Day trip. We stayed at a Hyatt, a Marriott, at Casa Munras in Monterey, and at La Bellasera. This was our favorite hotel. We LOVED La Bellasera. It is an elegant, romantic, comfortable property with attention to hospitable details. The location is excellent - 35 minutes from Hearst Castle and 25 minutes from San Luis Obispo. We enjoyed the deep hot tub in our bedroom, the comfortable bed, and the plush linens. The fitness room was a hit for us. The staff seemed delighted to host us. We can't wait to spend more time at La Bellasera in the coming years - especially while our child is a student at Cal Poly.

This hotel is seriously so awesome. It's right on the 101/46W, making it a very easy jaunt to wherever you'd like to go on the Central Coast of California. The staff was excellent, the food was amazing, the room, don't even get me started. We had a King Spa, with a deep and relaxing spa tub in the room. The bed was super comfortable. There was a refrigerator where we could keep all our goodies we collected while wine tasting throughout the day. We also had an in-room massage for two where they brought and set up the massage tables for us.

I just can't say enough about the excellent service and overall indulgent quality of this hotel. Well worth the price.

One other thing - my husband and I reserved with Elegant Image Limo for an all day wine tasting - and they were also superb. An excellent and knowledgeable driver - Fabian - took us to many out of the way wineries that we might not have otherwise visited. We had a blast and arrived back at the hotel safely.

Please go and stay at La Bellasera so that this young hotel succeeds so we can all keep enjoying it in the future!

Thank you La Bellasera!

I originally booked the hotel through Orbitz. I had to cancel 24 hours out due to illness. Even though the hotel was not full they refused a refund. I later rebooked directly with the hotel for the next day. Upon checkout I wrote the General Manager telling her about my experience at the hotel (generally good) and asked for some refund consideration. I never received a reply nor a refund.
Hotel room had good bed, great tv and very noisy refrigerator.
Restaurant service was slow (crowded) but food quite good

We just returned from a stay at this fantastic hotel. The building is very attractive and the staff we met were very nice and friendly.

The location was not a factor to us but rather convient because the road to the coast is right next to the hotel and we were at Hearst Castle in about 40 mins. Great scenic drive as well.

The room was great. A mable top honor bar and sink with plenty of room sat next to a stone, floor to ceiling fireplace that has a 42" plasma tv above the fire pit. A couch with three comfy pillows and coffee table is directly across from that. On the coffee table is a wireless keyboard that provides internet access from a channel on the plasma tv. Very cool. If that isn't enough, there is also a keyboard, mouse and flat screen monitor on the work desk across the room. All complimentary. Big king bed was very comfortable and the in room refridgerator was big enough for all our stuff. Being only a few months old everything was crisp and decorated very well.

My wife loved the bathroom. All marble huge walk in shower with a showerhead the size of a diner plate. Top end bath products and huge fluffy towels. They also had little things like a container with earplugs, makeup remover and out of the ordinary stuff that showed someone took a lot of time to make this a comfortable stay.

In my humble opinion, if your are in the neighborhood and need a place to stay give this hotel a try. We have stayed at many properties and this came close to our experience at a 4 star hotel in SF last June. That is how much I thought of La Bellasera. Great place!

This hotel has wonderful amentities and a great resturant. It has lovely touches throughout. Huge fluffy towels, amazing roman tubs, bath items top notch, really thick cotton sheets. It's lovely.
It would be a great romantic hotel for a couple. A great base for wine tasting too.

But it is right on the freeway. Your window views are of freeway, Hampton Inn and Target. This isn't reflected on the website and I think giving people the idea it's out in wine country ( it's close but in commercial area and on freeway ) isn't right.

Once you are inside though close the windows and enjoy!

This hotel is brand spanking new. The amenities are fantastic. We had a fireplace and a flat screen TV in our room. The bed was very comfortable. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat.
