          Hello, This question is directed to the owner or whomever responds to traveler reviews. I'm not sure if you realize how insensitive and uncaring your responses are toward your guest who have posted a "terrible" review but they're pretty bad. Would you, in the future ever think about possibly having someone else respond to your customers/guest or maybe take notice with better resolution? Just for anyone that may have read the responses and still want to give your location a try.

          I saw on tripadvisor that someone posted that they had a $74 rate for this hotel 2 weeks ago. Where do I find that rate? the best that I can find for the end of July is $104

          jaysue is correct that weekdays are usually cheaper. July and August are always very busy especially during AutoWeek where reservations are sometimes a year in advance due to attendance at Pebble Beach.
