We came here for a second time and stayed in a king suite. The room was newly remodeled and looked better than last time. The hot tub had a cover and the upgrades to the hot tub are very nice. The hot tub actually kept the good temperature and we did not have to keep refilling it like our visit...

Thank you for telling us that you had an "awesome" experience at Sycamore. Our massage therapists are the best on the Central Coast, so I'm quite unhappy to know that your massage didn't meet your expectations. Please do come back soon. Contact me directly and I will definitely ensure that you have a great massage and stay.

My husband and I spent the night here for our anniversary. We took full advantage of the private mineral springs hot tube outside our room. The onsite spa was peaceful and our couple's massage felt amazing! We will definitely stay here again!

If you like to soak, this mineral springs spot is for you. Each room has its own little outdoor hot tub on your private deck. Nothing fancy, but pretty great. We had a soak and a reasonably priced massage. Not cheap, Not expensive. The room rate (mid week off season) was about $150. And, the dinner in the restaurant was...

I returned to Sycamore Mineral Springs for my birthday getaway. I love the surrounding areas, Avila Beach, San Luis Obispo, and Pismo Beach. There are two trails to bike or hike, Bob Jones Trail, and Sycamore Crest Trail. The hotel also has a spa with various body treatments, and a yoga dome with yoga classes in the morning.

My husband and I came for our honeymoon. Originally I was attracted by the Jacuzzi and beautiful suite, and the place really met our expectations. Everything was perfect, from the bed, to the shower, the hot tub, and the huge TVs with cable. It was very clean and I liked how secluded it was from everything yet still close enough...

Hi, The stay was very nice and beautiful landscaping.. I did request for hot tub to be filled at 7:00PM Saturday but they forgot otherwise the accommodations were great. The mattresses were a little firm but good. Would like to stay at the suite sometime in the near future but at a discounted rate. Thanks, Jim

My wife and I came here for a mini-moon after our recent wedding. After searching for places that included a personal jacuzzi, we chose Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort and Spa, and couldn't have been happier.

I enjoyed the room, the meals and the hot tub in the room. I could never figure out the hot tub controls, though and it should have a manual. The pool definitely needs an upgrade. Its surface is crumbling and it's cold!
