As everyone says, (1) It's historic (2) It is strangely located on an army base (3) It's really cheap by California standards (4) It's kind of shabby. It's a one-of-a-kind place. I wouldn't make it my destination, but if you're going to need a place to stay within 30 miles, why not?

Had 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, full kitchen, large living room with an office/desk and large room at entrance. An interesting and historic property with few luxuries. Free wifi included. 1 Free breakfast included, additional breakfast $5/person. Breakfast was a boxed meal with... More

Four of us stayed in the Lower Commander's Suite. Very simple rooms: 3 bedrooms, kitchen & living room. There were no murals or carved doors as shown in some of the pictures. The stove was unusable & the water dispensing area of the fridge was very dirty. The main bathroom was also very dirty with dust covering the fronts of... More

I have stayed here about 3 times in the past 15 years. I stayed in room 7 in May 2015, one of the very affordable Cowboy rooms. The room badly needed new paint and carpet, really bad shape that way. Furniture great, internet access great, nice to have mini fridge. Quiet facility despite being full up. They need to be... More

We decided to go wildflower viewing for a couple of days and drove down 101 to King City where we took the Jolon Road exit to Fort Hunter Liggett. The road is narrow but paved and lined with mature oaks. First, we visited the St Anthony of Padua Mission, currently undergoing restoration. This is still a working church and you... More

If you do not know about this place you need to look it up before you go. Charming, old world Hacienda type hotel stuck out in no mans land on Ft Hunter-Liggett military base. $90 bucks a night and when the military is not have training exercises not many people around. Room we stayed in was on the first floor.... More

This is such a fantastic place. So much history and the rooms are incredible. I found it very peaceful...but be warned: You are about 45 minutes from the nearest store or restaurant, so come prepared. There is a bar which was open until about 10:00p.m. the night we stayed, but they were out of things... A very nice breakfast was... More

Got here on a Sunday afternoon after an unbelievable drive over the mountain from Big Sur. it was 104 degrees and the evaporative cooler was useless. Room was spacious. Bed was comfortable. Got scalded in the shower when the commode next door was flushed. Drove to King City for dinner, about 40 minutes away and closest place. You gotta like... More

This is on an active U.S. Army base. The Hacienda is built Mission-style and is a really fun and very different place to stay. We loved the shower built with rocks and it was just nice to be away from cookie-cutter modern styles. Bed was good, they had DirecTV. On Saturday nights, the bar next door gets plenty loud but...

Don't expect Hearst Castle elegance here, only the lodge Hearst built for friends. This place is pretty interesting as a building, nestled in a nice area near the Army base. It was off season so the place was empty except for some hunters. We stayed in the Commander's Suite as there were 5 of us. 2 large bedrooms, a huge... More
