This hotel is located in a neighborhood of retro apartments and is an apartment building that's been remodeled. The pool is the social area with a hot rub and BBQ grills. They play music and there are cool couch bed areas as well as many comfy poolside chairs. The pool and hot tub were clean. Unit was huge like a...

Wow...I have never had an experience like I had at El Dorado. I made a reservation at 1pm through Orbitz and received a pretty decent deal for check in the same day. I traveled from LA to accompany my mom and dad for my dad's bypass surgery. They live in Rio Verde and they had a house full of guests...

Stayed for 5 nights in May 2014 and had a lovely time. The two bedroom-two bathroom suite we rented was spacious and perfect for my friend and I. While we were likely the oldest guests in the hotel and didn't resemble the demographic but somehow felt right at home with the rest of the guests and staff. Staff were super...

This is a total throwback to the late 60s Madmen theme of a romantic getaway with the possibility for a swinger interaction - of course that's not at all what we were looking for. The grounds are cute, the pool is fine, the jacuzzi is nice, the outside TVs and firepit are relaxing and entertaining. Parking sucks, they have no...

It's more like a motel but a really cool one, surrounding a very nice pool layout. We checked in before 3 p.m. but the room was not ready. However the staff put our luggage in a room in the lobby and we headed over to the pool and just relaxed in the sun. The suite itself was great, with a...

Wasn't sure what to expect but I really liked this hotel! Had a 2/bed 2/ba suite that had not been updated like some of their other suites but was very comfortable and clean.

We stayed here with our family of 5. Great location...near everything but quiet enough to relax. Well suited for families, couples or singles. Loved the decor and the service. Our two bdrm two bath was very spacious and a great value Wish we could have stayed longer.

“There are no televisions in the bedrooms we stayed in….and the couch is too hard to sleep on overnight, so keep that in mind if you need a TV to fall asleep.”
