My husband and I planned to stay here while visiting relatives during Christmas break. Unfortunately our wonderful kitty cat of 16 years is not doing well, and we had to make the difficult decision to cancel our trip so we could helping our ailing cat. We emailed and my sister who lives in in town went to the hotel to... More

This is a very basic motel with a bed, wood paneled tube tv, and a little table with chairs. It's perfect for one night, but definitely not somewhere to stay for a vacation or even a weekend getaway. The fact that it's dog friendly and doesn't charge a pet fee is amazing! However, their pet friendly rooms come with a... More

This hotel is probably only used when hotels in town are full. For $150 it is outrageously overpriced. The walls are scuffed and dirty (See picture) and I refused to take a bath in the tub (again..see picture). Will never stay here again.

We spent a night there a couple weeks ago with our car club. Charlie and Jaime (owners) made us feel welcome and worked really hard to accommodate our needs. About 3 miles from Julian downtown proper, large asphalt parking lot. We will return.

Very basic accommodations. A couple miles from downtown Julian, but two nice restaurants are either next door or right across the street. My room had a 19" tube TV from 1975, with only about 5 or 6 channels, but then I came here to escape the rat race. No fridge, no wifi, but parking directly in front of room. Best... More

Yes, it's a bit run down. But it's clean, has a pool and a great location. We chose these accommodations because we have 2 dogs and 1 is older and has a hard time with stairs. You can get a nice room in town but it's going to be a 2-story building or a B&B. This place is a true... More

So we spent one night at this hotel while visiting Julian for star fest event. It was the only place in Julian area we could get that would take a single night reservation without the week end two night minimum. Not much we can say about this place except that it is clean and inexpensive. No frills and very basic.... More

This motel seemed to be à nice place to stop for a night. A pool, a little garden, a friendly welcome. After we paid 112 $ it was too late. No fridge, no microwaves, a poor TV with only four channels and without remote control (sorry! It's gone), a very poor Wifi, which was available at less than 30 feet... More

We ended up at this hotel because the bed and breakfast we booked at lost our reservations. When we drove up to it, it look like the Bates Motel. The Inn keeper was very nice, even though we woke him up, he helped us out and even gave us discount since we were staying for two nights. The room he... More
