After reading some pretty bad reviews about the Great Parnassus, I was disappointed and not expecting much since my girlfriend and her family booked this hotel for a family vacation. Well, I don't know what the other people were expecting, but I was amazed at how nice and clean the hotel was. The moment we arrived, we were noticed the...

Just returned from a one-week vacation with our family including 3 kids (14, 5 and 5) and in-laws at the GP. Upon arriving at the GP, you are welcomed by a beautiful lobby with waterfall backdrop and friendly bellmen. While the check-in process can be slow, at times crawling, you are instantly transported to vacation mode. The hotel offers several...

I was excited stay at the Great Parnassus since we were taking our 18 month old Grandson. What a disappointment. The resort is in pretty bad condition for not being fairly new. There are many cracked tiles all over the hotel and the rooms are worn, especially the bathrooms. That was not the main reason why we were disappointed. There...

When we arrived, the hotel was not air conditioned. the only thing air conditioned was our room, and that continually smelled like mildew. The heat and humidity were stifling. I've never been so hot for so long in my entire life, and I have traveled quite a bit. Not to have air conditioning in a resort town in the middle...

We arrived at noon & were able to get into a room at 1:30pm (because we asked if it was ready). They tell everyone rooms are not available until 3pm. We...

I traveled there with a friend. We were very very surprised. We had not heard about the hotel that much since we booked last minute. It was clean, the lobby is very nice.

I read a lot of negative reviews before our trip and was very nervous about this hotel but can now say without a doubt (we went August 25, 2010) there was nothing to be nervous about.
