    Nice stay could be deep cleaned tho
    Easy check in, quiet room. Smelled a bit musty but it is in the redwoods.

    Very Good8.0
    Fair place to stat
    The Chaminade is a beautiful property, but it is not as elegant or romantic as it has been in the past. It is geared for resort members and for corporate use . We had trouble with our keys, using the pool area which they charge an additional $40 for and it was a very small room. I have a service dog and was questioned numerous times and was told to eat outside for breakfast. While I understand there needs to be precautions since they also service pet owners and their pets, it made the stay a bit rough from the start and things kept going wrong. The staff did their best and gave us a late check out. I would stay again as it us better to stay there than at a beach motel . It is convenient and overall a fair place to stay.

    Poor Customer service
    Customer service here is horrendous. My wife and I paid $500 for an evening here, hoping for great service and a stress free weekend. We had no info in our room about room service, spa accommodations, etc. so we called the front desk requesting it (and a second robe because apparently they only give you 1 unless requested) and they said they were sending someone up with them. An hour and a half later, nothing came and we had reservations at the hotels restaurant. So we went to dinner, and they took almost 40 minutes to get us starters. Over an hour after ordering entrees, they finally arrived. We sat there with empty plates for nearly 20 minutes before they brought us the check. Due to wait time for each course, we were there for about 2.25 hours. Food was lukewarm,meal was not worth $100 (we didn't even order alcohol). So after our meal, we went to the front desk and they provided us a door hanger for our room service breakfast. Also requested a robe and she said they would send us one up if it wasn't waiting for us in the room. Got back to our room, they never delivered anything. We decided to pass because it wasn't worth the headache. We proceed to select our breakfast ($10 room service fee + 24% added gratuity). And hung our door hanger out around 10PM for 8AM delivery (it specifies a 2AM cutoff) Come 8:30 the next morning, still no knock at the door with our order. We opened the door to check if they even took our door hanger and nope, it was still hanging.

    Not worth the price
    I don’t believe the property is worth the price! Rooms looked bigger and better in the online pictures. Amenities were ok. Staff at front desk were friendly but super distracted and busy and seemed overwhelmed with the two weddings booked there. By far the worst experience in dining at the Linwood bar and grill. The service was non existent with 45 min wait for appetizers and another 45 or more for the sub par food.

    Rest and Relaxation.... Not Exactly!
    Multiple weddings going on. No parking. Lots of noisy kids running around. And forget ordering from room service. Local cooks refer to working in that kitchen as "Denny's on the hill", and that analogy is pretty spot on.
