Overall pleased with the location and views. Great view of the sea from my bed, high bed so get ready to jump if you are short like me. the jetted tub was wonderful and the historical value of this location was great. One thing that would make me return again. The beds need under box spring bracing, this can be... More

I stayed here for 3 nights, Friday through Sunday. The first night the AC in my room kept me up because it was so loud. The second night I was awoken at 1 am by a fight outside my window. I believe it must have started in the bar that is below the hotel. Police were called. The third night... More

Benicia is a charming city in the bay area. The town has a wonderful charm and fun stores to shop and eat at. Everything wonderful about this town is entirely missing from the poorly run hotel. This is an old beaten down hotel greatly in need of maintenance. Hope the wind does not blow at night, or the wind whistles... More

Had lunch with friends at the Union Hotel so decided to stay there for a couple of days. This hotel is very old but that's what makes it cool. Lots of antiques in the room some attention to detail is needed but still a nice room comfortable room. We stayed in the Primrose Beach room and could see downtown and... More

Have been coming here once a year for many years....has gone from OK to won't come back. Excellent location in downtown Benicia near the waterfront and convenient to shops and restaurants. The building is well over 100 years old, but there is no excuse for poor maintenance and lack of cleanliness. Our "Marigold" room was poorly cleaned, mattress sunk in... More

Great location in town. Turn of the century building with antique historic atmosphere. Good food, especially a good dinner location for business. Rooms are well appointed and well maintained, but are a bit worn in.

My BF & I stayed in the Marigold Room. A little different from the photos of the room on their website. Prior to writing this review, I emailed the hotel so that they had a chance to address these things, but they never replied. First red flag, we called the hotel to ask them a question before our arrival. They... More

Well we got in after hours on a Saturday night close to midnight. There were folks on the street being very noisy, we assumed from bar across the street. The room had a jacuzzi tub that would not hold water. That in itself really ticked me off since I had just put some expensive lavender bath in only to find... More

The room was large with a nice view, but the furnishing were very tired. Antiques were in poor condition. The shower over the tub was awful. Strange operation with no manager in attendance most of the time. Very noisy until the early hours of the morning.

We checked into the Union Hotel on a Saturday in early for a short 1 night stay. The hotel is historical and has many quaint features, but the rooms are very tired and in need of update - the quaintness of the antiques is lost in that the furnishings are in pretty poor shape. The bathroom is private, which is... More
