I found some staff warm and welcoming, others disinterested and rude. Buildings and rooms are old. Rooms are small and out of date. In need of facelift. Food was terrible.

"Travelers passing through Santa Cruz"
My friends and I were traveling up the coast of California and had a one day stay at the Chaminade. The stay was very enjoyable. Our staff recipient Chloe was very helpful. She gave us a map, 4 keys and times of availability for all of the facilities. She greeted us with a friendly spirit and set us up for a great start! Thank you Chloe!

"Reservation mixup"
Beautiful hotel in rustic Santa Cruz mountains though close to town and the ocean. My only complaint was that when I booked the room, it was supposed to have a king size bed. All my confirmation notices indicated a king size bed, so you can imagine my surprise and dismay when I was told that the room had two queens instead. They comped me breakfast coupon but I was still disappointed.

"A little disappointed"
Our first room was small and the smell unbearable. After complaining we were given a bigger room with no smell. The power went off twice be cause of using too many appliances. They came and reset the breaker. Beautiful setting. Mediocre facility.

"Worth the stay"
Hotel was extremely nice. Friendly and helpful staff. The big knock would be the hot tub / pool area. There were no towels at the pool and the hot tub / jacuzzi was not hot. More like a warm bath water and the jets were non exsistant. It was basically a big bath tub that kids were playing and jumping in. Very disappointing for a hotel as nice as this one was

"Quick getaway"
It was a last minute anniversary getaway. The room was nice but not very well cleaned. The shower toiletries holder and the corners of the room could use some deep cleaning. While we were gone, housekeeping came in and only did our bed. We were surprised that the room was not vacuumed and very little was done to it. Also, we were provided only one rob and only decaf coffee. The staff was very friendly and nice. The hotel main area is very nice and grounds are well keep.

The location of this resort is great, very secluded yet close to town. However, the condition of the hotel doesn't render 4 starts (especially the restroom), same goes for the overpriced food provided by the room service.

"Quiet getaway"
We stayed at the Chaminade to attend a College graduation and stayed only one night. We had 2 meals there, late lunch one day and the breakfast buffet in the morning. The room looked clean and SMELLED clean. It was well appointed although the mattress was disappointing. The Chaminade is tucked up and away from the main part of Santa Cruz in wonderful eucalyptus forrest and is quiet and peaceful. We used the valet parking since self parking was limited and/or too far from our room. The young men taking care of the valet service were polite, well groomed and energetic. Our lunch in "Linwoods" was just OK. The burger and grilled chicken sandwiches we got were overcooked and over salted. The breakfast buffet in the morning was very good with the right amount of selections and variety. Made to order omelettes were appreciated with eggwhites as an option. The service in "Linwoods" was slow and the wait staff for the buffet was very good...good hot coffee.The only drawback was we didn't have time to use the spa facilities which we paid a resort fee $30.00 per room (we had 2 rooms)...The Chaminade is lovely and would definitely stay again.

"Resort fees should go."
We arrived late and were upgraded to a nice room. We had to leave early for a graduation, so had little time to enjoy the resort amenities, but of course had to pay the additional $30 resort fee. We expected it, but it still stings a bit.

"Chaminade 6.5.2015"
Originally placed in a room that was under maintenance. Called the front desk and was "upgraded" to a junior suite. While the room was clean, it was worn. Definitely not worth the $300.00 paid. The bar area was understaffed for the amount of people in the area as there was a large company event being sponsored. The grounds appeared all kept and the staff well trained and took pride in their work. The meeting room used was functional and would use conference services again. The breakfast and lunch were both very good as well as they ensured we had plenty of snacks and coffee- thank you!

"The worst hotel experience we have ever had!"
As background, we have traveled extensively and stayed in many different hotels throughout the world, and this was by far our worst hotel experience. The rooms and common areas were filthy and looked like they hadn't been updated since the 70's. The hot tub wad luke warm and had brownish stains everywhere, and the food in the restaurant was by far the worst that we have experienced in our travels. Bottom line - DO NOT STAY HERE!

"eWorld not recommend"
We found the hotel to be very expensive for what it offered. The rooms are glorified motel rooms with tiny bathrooms. The spa fee of thirty dollars per person per day is high for what is offered. The complex is spread out and disjointed. There is a nice restaurant terrace and the landscaping in very well done.

"Other then check in- great!"
The front desk was very friendly. Hotels.com said check in was at 3 however when I got there it was at 4 so I was pretty early. When I got to the front desk I was feeling pretty under the weather. They said they they would email me when a room was available. I waited well over 2hrs threw the rush, and still no email. I went to the desk after 4 and asked about the email. The girl looked confuse and said that a room just opened up. Everything after was delightful, the room and bathroom were clean and beautiful and the bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in. Had I not been under the weather, the oversight at the reservation desk would

"First Timers to Santa Cruz"
We wanted to check out Santa Cruz and take our 7 and 5 year old boys to the Boardwalk. The hotels we found online close to the boardwalk were not appealing to my wife and we found what we considered a great price on this resort so we booked it. The heated pool was a blast for the kids. The grounds were beautiful and we enjoyed just walking around the resort. The staff was very friendly. We had an issue with the sliding door on our room and called the front desk. Maintenance was there quickly and fixed the issue. I didn't really discover the fitness facility until the last day there and it was one of the best hotel centers I have seen. It is a distance from the beaches, but the drive is quick and it does have the feel of escaping into the trees and overlooking the ocean. It is a more expensive place than we would normally go, but it was actually better for us than any of the other hotels we saw while we were down there. It was worth it.

I HAVE BEEN COMING TO THE CHAMINADE for at least 20 years to visit my family in Santa Cruz I have made the same suggestions for all my years The rooms are too small There is NO place to put your personal cosmetic and cleaning items anywhere in the bathroom NO counter space It is still straight out of the 1970's----- There is STILL NO BAR---for a fairly expensive hotel, they give you few amenities The restaurant is expensive…….. The place is beautiful and charming but the Hotel itself needs improving

This is a nice hotel in a very enjoyable rural area with great walking areas. The employees were are professional. The room, as stated in other reviews, was more of a nostalgia trip with a feeling that I was back in the 1970's. Some of the missing grout was just poor maintenance.

Santa Cruz is not that great first of all. It's not a clean place. This was one of the nicer hotels there but it needs maintenance. I could hear rats in the walls at night. The rooms are decorated in 70s decor, or haven't been updated since the 70s. They charge a lot compared to what you would get in other cities. Stay in Monterey if you can. Staff is very friendly, though.
