OK, we read all of the previous reviews and we were a little concerned but just curious enough to go and stay for 2 nights. We are so happy that we did! The rooms were quaint but very comfortable, had to ask for an extra blanket which the staff speedily brought to us. The place is old but very special.... More

Charming, quirky and historic place to break our journey from Pebble Beach to Palm Springs. We read the website carefully and selected a quiet double room with its own shower and facilities to the rear of the property. As it was a relatively quiet Sunday evening the bar wasn't as rowdy and lively as it apparently can be at times.... More

There is some charm and interest in this old time hotel. Walking through the door, the inside matches the outside. The check in included signing multiple waivers which I have never seen before. There is a restaurant and bar on the first floor, however the restaurant was closed when we were there. There is no elevator and it is one... More

The hotel is quaint and has a lot of interesting historical charm to it. The rooms are old and be aware some rooms do not have a bathroom therefore you must use a shared bath which is in need of some TLC. The rooms have stained glass windows above the doors and some are boarded up (again, more TLC). The... More

If you think the outside is authentic western, you're in for a surprise when you walk through the doors. The seating areas are cozy, romantic and picturesque. There's a bar, saloon with swinging doors, buffalo head pool room, front desk and atmosphere that could be straight out of a movie set. With weekend live music and outdoor seating, this is... More

Very interesting hotel. The place is very old. If you are looking for a fancy hotel this is not it. There is a shared bathroom and very scary wallpaper in my opinion. The larger rooms have their own bathrooms. But our room only had a window and a fan. It was very hot in the summer. The food was alright... More

The location is great, close to freeway, very close to restaurants and markets. Very small community, the main street has about 10 businesses. Hotel is nice and the garden is peaceful. The live music downstairs could barely be heard from our room, #4 in front. It was very hot, so it was a relief to see there was a ceiling... More

We booked the 1880 Union Hotel based on an article in Cycle World magazine, and we were not disappointed. The outside of the hotel, complete with a wood sidewalk,, looked like it was out of a western movie. Inside, the lobby was true to what I would image a lobby from 1880 would look like. The give away that this... More
