This hotel was great. Very unique old west style hotel with saloon. The beds were very comfortable. The staff was extremely friendly. The price was a little high but you get what you pay for. Drink prices were awesome. I highly recommend staying there at least once

We came to the wine saloon to check out Kurt Russell's GoGi wines. The hotel and saloon are full of old charm and character! It was great to visit just to walk through the hotel. We enjoyed tasting the different wines from the GoGi selection. The girl serving our wine tastings was very friendly and knowledgeable about everything. We did... More

I stayed over on a recent Saturday and the first thing I would point out is that unlike most places in the wine country further south, this hotel does not require a two night minimum stay on weekends. I took a room without a bath, and the bath and shower facilities down the hall were fine. As others have stated,... More

What a wonderful gem tucked away in in the sleepy town of Los Alamos! My husband and I had not explored here for a long while, though we live relatively close. We booked a gorgeous room and were enchanted with all the antiques, comfortable rooms, the tons of books available to peruse and fireplaces and pot belly stoves to curl... More

My daughter who lives in Lompoc took my husband and I here last Saturday. Driving into town felt like I was in a time zone way back, I could imagine horse and buggy up and down the street, well the road really is bigger as some trucks drove through. Well we went into the 1880 Union hotel what a GREAT... More

Rented the hotel out for our company holiday party. Awesome, very clean place. Super cool room with a pool table off the bar area. (horseshoe pit as well) They opened the bar early for us and kept it open late. Even the owner stayed late to make sure we had everything we needed. Great rooms with different themes. Would definitely... More

Los Alamos is a cute one street town, a lovely little get-away just 20minutes south of Santa Maria in the Santa Ynez valley. The 1880 Union Hotel is fun to stay in! Lovely antiques and period furnishings in each room. No mini-bars or TVs in these rooms! And the saloon attached to the hotel is owned by Kurt Russell and... More

Paid extra for a room with a balcony but the balcony was falling apart and we were scared to go out on it! I expected a small room, but I expected a lovingly restored building which this is NOT. Looks like the owners didn't have enough money to do it right and it shows. Burnt out light bulbs abound, the... More
