Too close to train & freeway
Floors & walls not sufficiently insulated for noise - running kids in room above was constant nuisance
TV worked only intermittently
Beach full of tar and a bit rocky
Ocean views ruined by oil rig
Massage not great
Trouble with getting drink & food orders right
BUT, the architecture and grounds are spectacular!
The Goodland had a really cool theme, a mix of 60's Ca with surfer southwest...and it works! Staff is incredibly friendly and enjoys being there. The rooms are small, refurbished motel rooms, but clean and super comfy.
The facilities are very nice. We arrived at about 1:45 and were told the room was not ready, but would definitely be reedit 3. We came back to the lobby about 2:30, but it wasn't until we saw someone else check in at about 2:50 that we approached the counter. We were checked in, but it seemed to be at the convenience of the young lady at reception.
The room was comfortable and clean when we checked in, but there was no shower curtain in the bathroom. It was provided promptly.
The room clean up was good, but none of our coffee supplies were replenished
"Best of the outdoors for those who do not like camping or roughing it. Expensive. Clean."
Expensive, but worth it at least once. Very clean, well done. Comfortable, quiet - good policy of "no cars in canyon". Leave your car at parking area (after initial luggage drop) and short walk to cabin. Staff friendly. Good for those into peace, quiet and enjoying nature without having to actually camp.
