Whoa, before you unsaddle and settle in at this ranch, know that the setting can be enjoyed for a good meal, and then escape before you spend $300 for rundown, noisy accommodation, and a totally dishonest staff who assure you of quiet, and wifi when neither could be more untrue. The school on the adjoining property runs athletic practices LOUDLY with blaring music in the early mornings and afternoons- 5 days a week, yet the ranch check in staff assure guests of quiet. Our room needed its bathroom recleaned, its windows were seized shut, and the patio door lock was rusted and broken. Wifi was only available in a cold, dingy structure away from any comfort or convenience in spite of assurances that it worked throughout the property. GM Carota when contacted showed no interest in improvements, and we fled to an alternate hotel for comfort, and quiet. Such a shame because the setting is truly lovely. I think Mr. Eastwood would be unhappy to know how badly some of his guests' experiences are after he rescued this special property from being condominiumized. Too many guests come hoping to spot Clint, but those who want peace and reliability should seek it elsewhere. Lastly, the ranch's good morning greeting to guests is to corral them for a very ordinary cold breakfast served in a rundown wooden room without views, with sweatshirts and t shirts hanging on the walls for sale, 2 washroom doors for community tennis players 12 feet across from the breakfast tables, and a woman on cash whose idea of entertainment was a too loud, early morning TV , cosmetic makeover. Why is the scenic dining room locked up until dinnertime while guests huddle in this undecorated shack? Stay elsewhere!
