California Resorts Photos and Information - Resort Options

California hotels and resorts feature amenities, attractions and often beach locations. From golf resorts to tennis, pet friendly hotels to gambling casinos, Four Diamonds to a Five Diamond luxury resort property, your options are wide open for great vacations. Spa vacations, tennis vacations, golf vacations, theme park vacations and everything you can imagine is just a credit card away. Yes, you have to pay for fun. But it's worth it! From a luxury spa deck off your suite, gourmet meals with fresh vegetables and food preparations for healthy living, cotton robes, French milled soaps and beds that can't be beat to golf course decks where you and you favorite pet can take in the action, California resorts have created an environment of fun for visitors looking for a destination experience in overnight accommodations.


Maybe you'd like to look at the roaring ocean that crashes on the rocks and lulls you to sleep. Whatever you seek, there are a wealth of California resorts at the California Beaches, in the desert and mountains. Below are lists of California casinos with hotels, golf with hotels and resorts, beach hotels and resorts and hotel reviews of affordable and luxury California hotels, resorts and inns. It doesn't take a lot of money to orchestrate a great California vacation. Get the room booked and then start planning.


What defines California resorts as opposed to California hotels are indeed, the amenities, facilities and on-site services. At the tucked away Carmel Valley Ranch, for instance, guests enjoy two-rooms suites the size of town homes, complete with a living room, two fireplaces, kitchenette, dining table cove, large balcony deck, views of the award-winning golf course or woods with wild turkey and deer, sauna tubs and showers and private outdoor deck spa in some suites.  In a resort you can expect to see something unique that makes the property a place you never have to leave during your California vacation. It's a well kept secret of meeting planners that they please their clients by keeping the conference guests on site. To do this, they pick California resorts where the guests are either isolated by distance or never have to leave because there are so many activities available.  The success of these events comes, however, in the wow! If the resort doesn't have something special, there is no buzz and without buzz, attendance drops.


In your quest for California resorts, you should expect to pay more per night.  Finding a resort room or suite for $150 or less is rare but not unheard of. It's hot in the desert during the summer months and if you stay on a week day, you often can find great prices at resorts. While prices on rooms and suites can extend to over $1000 per night and are not the best choice if you are pinching pennies, for those who want the best, for corporate conferences, weddings, honeymoons and special events or times when you want to treat yourself special, California Resorts provide some wonderful experiences, offering relaxation, special attention and the feeling of insulation away from the every day concerns.


Service at California resorts is typically top notch. Staff are trained to respond to your requests (within reason) and not forget to send someone for your car, to bring you extra towels or help you with a special arrangement. That's what usually separates the resort from the hotel.  Some resorts of note in California we've enjoyed include the Carmel Valley Ranch with a spectacular golf course on site that includes deer and wild turkey roaming outside your suite. California Beach Resorts such as  Bacara with is beautiful beach, and pools that glisten rich hues of blue in the afternoon sun, Catamaran with the exotic birds, fountains and beach on site, San Diego Hilton Resort also with swimming, sailing, jogging and views of the SeaWorld fireworks overlooking Mission Bay, Loews Coronado Bay Resort with gondola rides, beaches and public transportation to take you all over San Diego and Sea Ranch Resort where you can wander along pristine beaches and watch sea lions and starfish.


California Resorts are some of the finest in the world. From California Beaches to Bays, Deserts to Mountains, California Resort experiences are on our list as a favorite vacations for weekend getaways within our budget. They each feature a flavor of a specific location and make you feel at home, comfortable and special.
