This property is quite unique and special in many great ways. From the moment you check in the staff makes you feel warm and welcomed. The style being retro is felt throughout the property and your stay. The grounds are quite lush with a mix of trees, succulents and flowers that enhance your views and relax your mood. The pool...

The Goodland Hotel offers a fun, relaxed experience. Record players and records to check out to listen in your room. Great bar and food. Breakfast, lunch and dinner were all great! Yoga by the pool was fantastic. Drinks poolside even better!

This is a motel that has been repourposed as a "chic" hotel. Didn't work for me, and I won't be back. I did not appreciate the lack of anyone to assist me when I arrived or help with my bags. They were "nice" enough not to charge me a cancellation fee but seemed little interested in the fact that my...

I was attending a business meeting in the area and came upon this hotel on Google. I booked the room and was very pleased with this hotel. The theme of the hotel made me want to relax in my room, the bar, and poolside. The hotel has a very relaxed atmosphere and the staff was very friendly. Though the room...

We stayed two nights here and loved the vibe of the place. They did a great job giving it a distinct and fun personality. From the record players in the rooms to being able to check out records in the lobby. The free wine tasting on Saturday afternoon was a great bonus and the dj at the pool was really...

A very unique hotel experience. This boutique hotel has a lot of pros. The fitness center was excellent with very modern equipment. The pool was very nice. The restaurant and bar decour is very well done. My only cons are the low-water pressure in the shower and the thin walls as mentioned in other reviews, though not a dealbreaker. Would...

Traveling is never easy especially when it's for an extended period of time. I recently stayed at The Goodland and one of my first observations was how friendly and engaging the staff was. Mindy,Luann, Chris, Vince, Japrese and Conner at the front desk were always more than willing to assist whenever I needed something. The restaurant Outpost serves some wonderful...

As an inner circle member who has stayed at Kimptons across the US- the Goodland has to be the WORST. Where shall I start? First off, it's a motel with no elevator, and no bell service to help you get your things to the second floor. Rude staff, goes out of the way to emphasize how they won't help. The...
