This hotel isn't fancy, but totally functional for the price. As stated in other reviews, walls are thin so bring ear plugs. The rooms were spotless and we are very particular about this as we always bring Clorox wipes to clean everything! We asked for and received an upstairs room. The rooms were roomy and had microwaves and refrigerators in... More

I love where this hotel is located - beautiful! But other than the location, I was rather disappionted in our stay at Occidental Hotel. The bed was extremely firm (very uncomfortable, they need to invest in pillow top beds), and the walls were thin (we could hear the people next to us talking and laughing). We did not sleep well....

Spent a hot afternoon ziplining through the redwoods and were anxious to get cleaned up. Selected the Occidental Hotel because it was close to the ziplining. A very sweet lady behind the desk got us registered quickly and told us to always call the Hotel first before signing up through other internet sites to possibly get a better deal. Good... More

There's no getting away from it, the walls here are really thin so invest a few pennies in some earplugs for an undisturbed night. And, yes, it's a motel not a hotel so if you want a business centre, or valet, concierge and room services then you're probably better off on Highway 101. Other than that, for budget accommodation, it's... More

Quaint, quiet and relaxing hotel in center of the Occidental. Only 50 steps to excellent breakfast place, a local pub or wine tasting enoteca. Sparkling pool, clean rooms and relaxed atmosphere created by attentive staff. Highly recommend this place for visitors coming to "down shift", take in the Bohemian atmosphere of the town or go Zip-Lining the nearby Canopy Tours.

We have been staying here for years. Great spot, well run. The prices really shot up this year, but they did spruce up the rooms a bit. Brian is super helpful. Try to get an upstairs room aas they are quieter. Wireless, coffee in room, great pool.

Clean, comfortable rooms with small refrigerator, microwave and king bed. For the price, you can't beat it. Family owned and you can see it in the care that is taken with the property. I'll be back. They accept pets too.

The Occidental Hotel is clean and best bet for the price. But be clear--it is a motel not a hotel.

This is an older hotel in a charming little town. The folks working there were very nice and helpful. The shower worked great, the bed was a bit hard and the walls are pretty thin. The folks in the next room were loud talkers, but the AC unit helped drown out their yapping and they retired early.

I've just returned from this motel and, yes, it is older but upgraded The cons are that the walls are thin and you can hear the people walking upstairs but other than that it is value for dollar The room was clean and spacious and the pool while not heated was just fine. Howards acrosss the street has an amazing... More
