After 35 years of visiting Julian on day trips, we finally stayed at the Julian Gold Rush Hotel. It's a an old historic hotel - and a step back in time (no TVs, but there is air-conditioning). The rooms are pretty small, even the first floor rooms which are supposedly larger. It didn't matter to us, since we spent most... More

We made an unplanned stop in Julian on a weeknight, and were able to take advantage of a special rate for an upstairs room. We had our choice of rooms, and chose a corner unit that seemed to have a little more space around the bed, as well as two windows for some cross ventilation. The rooms are a very... More

My husband & I have been to Julian Gold Rush Hotel twice in the past year & just love it! It has early era charm, quiet, great Julain location & the breakfast is to die for! And, IF that isn't enough the staff is great!

This inn was so welcoming after miles of sand and mountain driving. We were able to choose our room, which was small, but well-appointed. The public areas were particularly charming with plenty of games and books available. The tea and the breakfast, both included, were delicious. Julian apples topped the French toast. The hotel, originally owned by an African American... More

This is a great historical area, and hotel once owned in the late 1800's by the Robinsons, an African American family living in the town of Julian, which holds many distinctions, including having had at one time the largest census amount of African Americans, including some of the city's founders, in the county, and one of the furthest south gold...

My husband and I decided to tag on an extra stop in Julian to our vacation. We called a few hotels in the area the night before and found that for just a few dollars more we could stay at the Julian Hotel and have a REAL breakfast rather than just a continental. It ended up being even more of... More

We had a nice experience here. I took my husband here for the night on Father's Day. We had an upstairs room. I read reviews and expected it to be small. It was very small...room 4. The hotel staff were very nice. The scones and cookies at tea time were good. Breakfast was delicious! I loved the little parlor area... More

My husband and I , on the spur of the moment, decided to stay here versus going to a brand hotel in San Diego. I am so glad we did! What a wonderful, relaxing place! The staff was so hospitable, helpful, friendly and welcoming. The room was quaint and beautifully decorated. It was exceptionally clean! We had a second floor... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here Memorial Day weekend. The location can't be beat, right in the heart of town and no more than a few minutes walk to everything. The rooms are small but very well appointed and cozy. We didn't have any ghostly encounters lol. Breakfast and tea time were well done and the board games were a... More

We can only confirm all the positive reviews. We stayed in one of the 2nd floor rooms; it was small, but comfortable enough for a 1 night stay (the bathroom was nice). After exploring the quaint shops of Julian (including a delicious slice of apple pie), we spent the rest of the evening in the parlor of the hotel. We... More
