We sooooooooooooo enjoyed our stay!!! Would have preferred to stay Friday but due to the Graduation/s and Father's Day week-end, we had to stay Thursday night and drive further up the Coast for Friday. My fault for not thinking/booking earlier...
Massage was awesome with Andi, such a sweetheart and will look forward to seeing her again!!!
Only one suggestion...you need an Ice Machine up that Dam hill! LOL :.)

...but jackhammer started at 8am :( Oh well, it was during the week and construction has to happen sometime! (Mgmt. gave discount when I mentioned noise at checkout, so extra points for that!) Otherwise, we absolutely loved "Charming", our King Suite in wooded setting across the bridge. The room was absolutely *beautiful* - richly appointed, and fully renovated. Anyone used to 5 Star accommodations would be very comfortable here - and if not, you will be totally wowed - great experience!

Dear Adaria,

Thank you for choosing Sycamore for your accommodation needs. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay in “Charming”! We apologize again for the noise and are glad you told the front desk about this disturbance. It is not common for Sycamore's charming wooded surrounding to be disrupted in this manner. Thank you for your compliments on our newly renovated rooms. We hope to see you again in the future!

We loved our stay. The room was fabulous and the staff made us feel special. My husband and I each had an appointment at the spa and it was great. The Gardens restaurant is great for lunch. We would definitely go back.

We loved the hotel, staff, restaurant, area and facilities. Only one problem; our Majestic room was over the housekeeping area and the loud roll up garage door underneath our room was constantly being raised and lowered...very annoying. Also the workers would shout across the parking lot to each other. A little quieter would be nice.

Very expensive hotel trading from legacy and not current. Decor is tired, rooms have paper thin walls and ceilings. This was a poor experience never to be taken again.
The location for this hotel is also poor as you need to drive to get to the beach or to a town. The hot tubs are old and very sad looking!

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your sharing your general thoughts of your recent stay along the Central Coast. Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort offers a truly unique location with tremendous beauty and impeccable weather year-round. Situated on more than 100 acres of forest, hills and meadows, within walking distance to the beach and hiking trails.

We are in the process of remodeling our resort, as we hope you will consider staying once again in the near future. We recommend our Spa King Suites located in our West Meadows nature preserve.

As a resort we are thrilled with the opportunity to improve our resort. Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback regarding your recent visit.

Thank you,

Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort
