Hi Laura, I noticed that you posted your review 2 days ago, but that you stayed in July 2015? I recently stayed there in March 2016 and they've completely undergone a 7.9 million dollar room renovation for all 156 of their guest rooms. Many of their suites also have meditation alcoves and are really well appointed. I'm so sad to hear this, as Chaminade is one of my favorite go to properties in Santa Cruz. If you haven't been back since July 2015, I'd suggest giving them another try. But that's just me.
