    My family and I had an amazing time. The grounds are beautiful, the service was top notch, the food at the restaurant was great. All in all we were delighted with the ranch.

    Would love to leave a 5 star review here, due to the potential the hotel has and how lovely the outdoor tub is - unfortunately the staff was uncoordinated or unprepared, and the food (especially in room) was borderline offensive both in presentation and quality. When we arrived to our room, the outdoor tub and deck was filled with leaves, room not fully cleaned, and room additions we had purchased (and specified to have left ahead of time as I set to surprise my boyfriend for his birthday) were not left. A $24 charcuterie set was left in a to-go box with stacked cold meats and pickles laying on top, looked like lunch meat left in the fridge too long. The rest of the experience was similar; across the board uncoordinated efforts and very poor food. We used $60 room credit for breakfast one day, with the $17 delivery fee ended up with a $93 bill for two day old onions and severely smelly salmon for the bagel and lox set up. Dined at the Valley kitchen and ordered garlic clams which were full of sand and broken clam shells. After our initial complaint about the room and room change as a result we chose not to complain, but suffice to say we came ready to find our new favorite hotel and we left unfortunately unable to recommend the hotel - despite beautiful grounds, tub, and Carmel area.

    Anniversary in Carmel

    We stayed in the room with a view of the valley and had soaking tub on the outside. Great service, easy check in, and the room was amazing. Loved everything about the room however the bed was a bit uncomfortable. Our backs hurt in the am, think the bed didn’t have the best support. 4.5/5 for the bed but otherwise everything was perfect!

    Poor cleaning...during a pandemic

    Sadly, the room was not clean, with toothpaste on the outside of the sink, a dirty cup between the sink and wall...a bit scary during a pandemic. Dirty glasses stayed on tables around the pool, while they tended things like umbrellas, which seem less important right now. Wallpaper in my hall was peeling, screen door to balcony was ripped. The setting is gorgeous, tub on the deck was lovely, and certain nice touches, but not worth the price...or the risk right now. They did not seem too concerned when I reported the poor cleaning.

    The property is very nice and peaceful. Not a great place for kids but more for a couple looking to get away.
