Let’s check back in on the Confluence’s hotel

Way back in July — when this whole Ashtanga Yoga Confluence thing was heating up — we checked in on the conference’s hotel. Meaning: We did a quick review of the Yelp reviews.

Today, we’re going to add a little more context, this time via Google’s reviews.

Admittedly, the Google number — 30 and counting — is a smaller sample than the Yelp back at the time, which was 94. That’s climbed to 107, and the overall Yelp score seems about the same: 3.5 out of 5 stars. The main complaint? That the rooms are a bit outdated. If you like tiki-like atmospheres, though, you might be in for a treat.

Google’s average is the same: 3.5 out of 5. It looks like it is dragged down by a few bad reviews, which I imagine is true of most hotels. (We all know those really bad reviews can be by competitors, too. Of course, you have to suspect the really glowing ones.) People seem put out by the parking fee on top of the room rate. Another 1-star review made the mistake of coming to the area for the Fourth of July — yeah, it’ll be loud then.

Judging from both Yelp and Google, I think can assume your room won’t be the fanciest you’ve ever stayed in, but the location is awesome and it sounds like the staff is pretty nice. (You can figure they’ll be running around trying to handle all of us Ashtangis.) I suspect it will give us a nice “we’ve escaped someplace exotic” feel.

That sounds more than good enough to me. (And I’m still hoping to surf.)
