We wanted a balcony which was nice. However, a keyboard a beach stay, for us, is to listen to the surf. Since the hotel has its HVAC sysytem between the balcony and the ocean, it wasn't too pleasant to listen to the surf. Additionally, our AC wasn't working during the night and, when I told gust services, no apology at...

Although the room was very large the view was poor. Could barely see the ocean. The room was also not as clean as it could have been. Bits of food and along the walls behind furniture. Didn't really feel as though we got our money's worth. Past visits have been spectacular but this time was below average.

MULTIPLE CHARGES made on our credit card were IN EXCESS of the total amount for our stay, and were ABOVE the rate quoted in reservation confirmation! Front desk staff could not have been more unhelpful, and eventually referred us to absent manager! Errors were made even on our check-out which we did TWO DAYS EARLY due to other, unsatisfactory situations......

Never made up my room, paid for club ten which promotes turn down service also and express check-in--didn't receive either. The elevator wait was mostly 5 minutes to get up or down. The service was a little slow by the pool but that can be typical with poolside service hotels. The room was nice but no refrigerator. I think it...

My husband and I stay at the San Luis at least once a year for our anniversary. This year was our 20 year mark and the staff went above and beyond to make it special and the room beautiful. We had a very relaxing weekend and hope to continue the tradition.
