How to Get There
This was my third stay at this property and I can report that things have improved. The staff was pleasant and helpful, the room was clean and quiet, and the grounds were much better maintained. On my last visit several of the outdoor games (Chess/Bag Toss) were broken or run down. This time everything was fixed and fine. My only caveat is that I was shocked to see that I was charged for maid and other gratuities and ticky-tack services that I either did not receive or had addressed separately. However, the charges totaled less than $20, so I did not complain. Just be sure you check your bill when you check-out.
This is a beautiful property. It is a treasure. I stayed here for a conference for 3 nights and can not say enough good things about the hotel. I did tea time as well and enjoyed the experience. My room was spacious and comfortable.
I look forward to using the spa in this historic hotel to work out and use the Jacuzzi and sauna. But they can't seem to keep the showers and the steam room free from mold. A "mold" squad once in awhile would do the trick. The staff are scared to relay a message.
This was my third stay in the Ocatilla building. I enjoy the pool, breakfast, and happy hour that is provided. My experience was better than past visits. I was charged for mini bar items when I never even opened the mini bar. It took several phone calls to get this resolved. I have had issues with the staff at this location in the past and see that they still don't quite have their act together. I go once a year for work, so will likely be back again.
What an amazing property. Great location, excellent service and the grounds are beautiful. Can't wait to go back. Nice room and beds - pillows were a bit to hard but worked. Breakfast was excellent and the staff were so friendly. Great pool area and swim up bar. Spa was nice. Convenient location.
