    I called ahead to ensure we had a handicapped accessible room and was treated well by the night manager.

    Friendly staff clean facilities and great location. My only complaint would be the shower head in the bathroom needed to be replaced and the parking fee is ridiculous at $27.00 a night.

    Staff is very nice, live music was the highlight, pools/splash zones are great, mini golf is cool, public park on property is helpful.

    The drinks are priced WAY out of line ($16!). Superior hotels in the area charge way less (usually $12 or under). The valet parking is unnecessarily complicated and the valet/bell staff are not properly trained, but they're all very nice.

    Location. Pool. Staff. It's always great at laguna cliffs. The only downside is the parking. $37 bucks for valet? That is crazy!

    Would rather have a deal with free parking than 20% off at Spa.

    TV reception was poor, 2 channels kept dropping out. Reserved a king size room, got the run around and finally got a king size room. Then the room wasn't stocked with shampoo and conditioner. Loud wedding outside that went on late in the night, not peaceful,

    Yes, many things! The property itself is stunning, very picturesque. I couldn't stop snapping photos. Our room was lovely (until the sewer backed up). We ordered room service several times, dinners and breakfasts, and the food was really outstanding!!! The pool and spa were set at perfect temperatures, and also very beautiful. The staff was also nice and pleasant. Except the manager who still hasn't contacted me. Hopefully will this week.

    The sewer backed up into our bath tub, couldn't shower in time to make our dinner engagement by the time it was supposedly fixed;next day, sewer sludge was back in the tub,sooooo gross, and we couldn't shower by checkout. The staff were very nice, credited me the 3 days of valet parking fees and said the manager would contact me to provide more adequate compensation. That was September 30, and I was never contacted. Very disappointing. Really negatively affected our trip. We ate at the restaurant, and ordered two glasses of red wine. The wine had turned from the bottle having been previously opened for too long. The waiter offered to open a fresh bottle, which they did, and it was good. Surprised they served from a bottle opened for days without using a coravin. Lastly, the "valet only" parking lot was gridlocked, with two weddings taking place, and we couldn't get out of the handicap parking space for about 10 minutes, being blocked by a stretch limo.
