  • Single

    Staff very nice, grounds well maintained.

    No fridge? Really? 175 a night and no fridge. Wow

  • Older travelers

    Location, great staff, good price, quiet

  • Older travelers

    Room was good

    Fridge and Microwave not in room. when we asked for them they wheeled in battered and dented old fridge and Microwave which we had to clean. Additional charge for parking and for internet

  • 3.8

    Nothing to like except the size of the room

    Dirt and dust due to construction, smelly workout area in need of renovation, slow drain bathroom sinks, breakfast without a menu or advance notice of the charge, no help to arrange for a tennis partner, needed to call for maid service to make up room, called for sink drain assistance and a part had to be located but the problem still was not fixed. Had to call for a fridge which was delivered promptly but looked beat up. Had to call twice to get and extra luggage rack which came on day two.

  • 9.2

    The ambiance of the hotel itself was beautiful. Felt more like a little town rather then a hotel, which I loved and the nature all around was beautiful. Beds were like sleeping on a cloud

  • 6.2

    size of the room and bathroom cleaniness of room Refrigerator in room blow dyer in the bathroom

    What I did not like will take more than two or three sentences. Nothing big, but many little things. The Shower was huge and big enough they could have build a bench in it to step up to shave your legs or to sit down if physically unable to stand. The water was either scalding hot/ or cold. Very difficult to get it to the correct temperature. The towel rack was about 4 feet from the sink, sounds petty but water would be dripped everywhere while reaching the 4 feet to dry hands. No additional seating in the room except the desk chair. No microwave only a small cube refrigerator that froze my salad, but at least there was a refrigerator to keep drinks cold. Only toiletries were shampoo/conditioner,and lotion. A place of this possible quality should offer a shower cap, cotton swabs, make-remover wipes, and maybe a sewing kit. Arrived at 11:30 p.m. PST, but I had been up since 6 am EST; so my body thought it was around 2:30 am. Only to find they lost our reservation and then we were made to feel as though we were to be appreciative the fact they had a room, repeated only one room left. I had removed luggage from the car and had to reload to drive to room - no offer of assistance from the three employees standing there. Room a long way from parking lot, in a free standing building housing 6 different hotel rooms. I had two 50 pound bags that I had to drag up three separate sets of steps two of the sets only about four stairs but the middle set was 13 steps. Only to find out the next day there was a golf cart path that I could of taken and avoided the 13 stairs. That was not told to me. NO breakfast offer was available. even the cheapest of hotels offer breakfast. No paper pad or ink pen, except for our last day of housekeeping service a pen was finally left. Never did find an ice machine. No map in the room of the lay out of the resort. Also no booklet that described the hotel facilities or surrounding area.

  • 4.2

    not a whole lot

    the room we stayed in had a sewer odor at times but the other room was ok. the ice machines that were on the eastern side of the property have been removed and you have to hike couple hundred yards to get ice. they call it a golf resort but they sold the golf course a year ago.there is street noise from the road which is just over the fence from the room.the value isn't there considering what they offer. they should change the name because there is no golf resort.

  • 10.0

    Had a good time only wanted to stay another night but was full

  • 7.0

    The rooms are very nice but from the outside it looks like apartments kinda private. And lots of stairs for someone with a stroller

    It's 30 mins away from everything so I felt like we were driving a lot with a 3 year old and an infant it was kind of a pain having to take them in and out of the car

  • 5.4

    The patio door opened on the wrong side. There was major construction going on and there was no information about this before hand. It stated on line we could have a roll out bed in our room, however when we arrived the hotel said it was not possible. Breakfast was unsatisfactory in the make shift ballroom

  • 5.4

    the staff people were really nice

    more of the facilities were a mess because the renovation.

  • 3.8

    The pool it was free and heated

    The unfriendly staff. The staff didn't communicate policies. Everything had an extra charge. The TV was fuzzy and didn't have all the channels it was supposed to have. Could hear people upstairs walking around and could hear toilet flush. Our toilet ran all the time. Coke machine was 4 dollars for a soda pop. Hot tub broken too.

  • 7.0

    Very friendly staff.

    While undergoing renovations, the selection of eating options left a lot to be desired and the breakfast buffet left a lot to be desired considering the price.

  • 7.4

    friendly service

  • 8.8

    The proximity to the freeway which made it easier/closer to our family that we were visiting.

    The parking is a bit tight in some areas. We stayed on the first floor and the sound transmission from the upstairs is a bit loud. If I do visit/stay at the Double Tree again, which is probable, I will book an up stairs room.
