A fully restored Spanish Colonial Revival-style private estate dating back to 1905, the stately Dolce Hayes Mansion is a 15-minute drive from downtown San Jose and a 40-minute drive from the Santa Cruz Beaches, with wineries, nightlife and golf courses all in the immediate area.

It is one of San Jose’s most impressive buildings, with sweeping mountain views and surrounded by lush, green lawns and gardens. Some refer to it as the Haunted Hayes Mansion, and many flock here in hopes of a sighting or encounter (although so far, these are rare).

Besides the alleged spirit guests, regular folk can take advantage of the heated outdoor pool, indoor and outdoor Jacuzzis, 24-hour fitness center, a 12,000-square-foot spa with treatments available (many priced nicely at $99) and tennis courts. Access to the nearby 18-hole Los Lagos Golf Course is also included, and there’s a large park across the road, which is good for running.

The Silver Creek restaurant offers views of the property's pristine grounds alongside daily breakfast and lunch, plus a Sunday Champagne brunch. Breakfast is a vast buffet, with omelet and Belgian waffle stations. At dinner, the Palm Plaza Lounge serves small plates and sharing platters, and its terrace is a nice spot to sit and admire the estate.

All guest rooms have complimentary Wi-Fi and a triple-sheeted bed. Parlor and Mansion suites are more modern and have a private balcony or patio, separate living space with a sleeper sofa, and some overlook the pool.

The main house was fun to explore and the outside area was great for visiting.

The staff was so nice. The rooms are large, they need a bit of updating but still comfortable. The restaurant was really good. The only downside for us was that they don’t have a lifeguard so families let their kids behave terribly. My daughter couldn’t use the pool for part of our stay because kids were jumping and diving into the pool (despite the big no diving signs) and she got landed on. Could have been hurt. But that was the only part we didn’t like.

Although old fashioned, the room was nice and I loved that they had a kuerig coffee maker in the room.

They seem to be pretty confused about the “free breakfast ($36 value)” included with this deal. Even if you tell the restaurant before sitting down, AND tell your server, they still bring you a confusing bill showing $20 being owed. I have a picture of it if you are interested in seeing. After further inquiry with the front desk, they explained we’d just need to sign that bill to have that “charged to our room” but that they’d remove the charge afterward. The restaurant manager was completely unaware of this and had a couple in front of us pay this $20 charge with their credit card prior to leaving the restaurant. We listened as he couldn’t even explain what the charges were for! It didn’t make sense. I don’t believe we were charged but I’m still waiting to see the final amount on my Credit Card statement. The front desk and restaurant definitely need to get on the same page though.

Surprising setting, architecture and history. It was like driving up to a turn-of-the-century estate (which it is). The deal was great and included nice breakfast for two. Don't tell everybody about this place!!!!
