Retro Vibe meets Modern!

Ukiah, California

When you first enter this hotel you can feel the energy that the 50’s and 60’s crowd have left behind. You can only imagine these movie stars in their bungalows partying by the pool into the wee hours of the morning. They have done a really good job keeping the retro and modern mix. The main pool area is amazing and the Chicki pool seems yet to be discovered by most guest. The rooms are nice and we really enjoyed the soaking tubs. The food was also good, but nothing over the top. The grounds are immacunentliy kept. There is some obvious pride from whomever is in charge of landscaping. With all this being said the property still needs some work. The carpets are old, the rooms need some TLC (our shower leaked and had mold in the corners and there was dust behind the tub that had been there a long time), the pool staff needs some management checking in on them (they were much more interested in visiting among themselves than waiting on customers) and their restaurant needs some better planning. We witnessed them sending a single away saying they were overbooked when there were many tables a available. There is extreme potential in this property. Maybe some movie nights for families by the back pool? Some old school movies playing by the front pool in the evenings? Sing alongs? S’mores kits offered to use by the fire pits? It needs to tap into the story that was first written there. With all the pro’s and con’s I would still go back.

Not at all like the bad reviews here

Building 8, room 8212, March 2019. Room was in great condition, bed was comfortable. Looked like everything in the room was recently added. The grounds were well kept and quite frankly, beautiful. So then... why does this place get so many bad reviews. MAYBE the other buildings haven't been renovated yet? I didn't have time to check them out as I was only here for one night. I wasn't expecting the "60's style" that is the theme of the lobby and rooms, so at first I was a bit taken aback, but once the shock wore off, I have to say it was every bit as well done as the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills. As for service, I have to say the front desk staff was wonderful. I had a problem with my room key not working. I went to the front desk and got a new set. Then THOSE weren't working and this time one of the front desk staff walked with me to the room and explained that you have to keep the card in the slot for about 2 or 3 seconds. I thought that was very nice of him to accompany me. One odd thing: No elevators. This was no problem for us but I could see how it could be for elderly guests that don't get a room on the first floor. Overall, this was a very nice stay and I would stay here again.
