Wonderful Setting; Superb Staff; Large...
Pros: Everything was great.The service, rooms and setting are perfect. A lovely getaway only a couple hours from LA. And the Inn is only a few steps from the town. So we easily walked into town for breakfast, lunch or dinner when we were not eating at the hotel.The hotel is set on a number of acres with winding paths through the gardens to the various buildings (cottages). It looks like most of the buildings are original or very old with Spanish designs, tile roofs, and many with fireplaces.We had one of their deluxe cottages, although since the time I booked the reservation they are now not calling them cottages (ours is now called a deluxe fireplace). The room had an old style fireplace that burns real wood. Not all the rooms have this. And it had a small patio with table and chairs in front of the unit. Most units seemed to have some kind of a patio. Some bigger than others . I think the reason they changed the name is none are stand alone cottages (except maybe the two room cottage). They are small buildings with a number of rooms, all ground floor. That said, it’s a very comfy and non-hotel type feel.Our room was very large with a large bathroom with very large double sink, old style bathtub and shower. Also a vanity area/table near the closet . The room was supposedly 430sq ft, which means it’s the size of a studio apartment and quite bigger than most hotel rooms.All the staff was very attentive and responsive (front desk, housekeeping, restaurant, etc). Even when we were walking around or driving to our unit staff would say hello, took the initiative to ask if we needed anything or directions etc.The Inn allows pets, and it seemed to encourage them as there were a number of dogs while we were there, I noticed a treat container at the front desk, water bowl at the entrance, and “poop” trash stations around the paths. Plenty of grass areas for the dogs.
Cons: Nothing not to like (although I suggest they remove the carpets that are getting a little worn and replace with stone, like what they have in the bathrooms. Not only cleaner and better, its more appropriate for the design of the rooms. They can always put some throw rugs.

Pros: the property was not child friendly at all! Most of the staff were more focused on serving the old rich people and not the young famillies.
Cons: The restaurant staff
