    I must not be apprised as to what constitutes a 4 star resort as this fell short of expectations in sanitation and upkeep of the rooms. I wonder; is it what a resort charges in additional fees? Is that what makes it a 4-5 star...More

    Enjoyed the stay. Great staff. The hotel is old California charm and is right across the street the water. Each building is named after a local flower. The view and the weather always make for a perfect stay. Look forward to seeing you next year.

    Daughters wedding was held here in October 2017. The location was beautiful. The rooms were very nice and the food service was good. The room was beautiful but some need more updating. Also, some were expensive

    The property needs renovation. The location is good however the hotel does not meet the standards that we are use to. I am giving this hotel an average rating. Not what I would expect from a Hilton hotel.

    The parking is NOT free. Yes, you get a card to get in and out, but you still have to pay at the end of your stay. I believe it was somewhere between 21 and 25 dollars.
