    Monterey Tides, a Joie de Vivre Boutique Hotel

    2600 Sand Dunes Dr, Monterey - Map
    "Great location right on the sands"
    Hotel has great location on the beach. Very enjoyable experience. Although I did not use it, hotel has heated swimming pool. You can sit on the front porch and watch crashing waves while sipping your wine in front of the fire pit. I could definitely spend a few more days. It's an old hotel and rooms have no balcony. If you leave blinds open people who walk by can see inside your room.

    Hotel Milo Santa Barbara

    202 W Cabrillo Blvd, Santa Barbara - Map
    "Great location"
    The hotel and grounds are just a bit shabby, not as well maintained as one might expect. The room was small, we had a deluxe king, ocean view. The room had a very dated fireplace with cheap gas logs that didn't put out much heat or look very good. My husband was not comfortable because the room did not have a chair to relax in. Also, we asked the front desk for maps for wineries and wine tastings and they didn't have any. Finally, we suggest finding street parking when you visit. We did and it was close and easy. The hotel charges $30 per day to park. When we checked out they tried to charge us extra for "the amenities" meaning the so called free breakfast and wifi our itinerary said was included. When I pointed that out they did remove the charge.

    Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite

    1122 Highway 41, Fish Camp - Map
    "one night stunt to Yosemite"
    Good: location, rooms are awesome, fridge in room, indoor pool for the winter, ice rink on site, quick check-in, Dog friendly, beautiful lobby decorated for Christmas. Bad: Expensive and under average food - think 3x the real price, restaurant attention was poor. Building has leaks, and they were addressing them with buckets. Bottom line: did it once, may stay again for the right price, absolutely not paying such high prices for food.
