We love staying at this hotel when the price is right. We have stayed in the older section as well as the newer tower. We had a corner room the most recent time we stayed. Very spacious, nicely decorated, comfortable bed. We will definitely stay here again when the price is right.

We were in the old section. I did't expect much and I didn't get much. The bartender was non attentive . We ordered filet medium and got blood rare. Probably would not stay there again. Ordered breakfast with scrambled plus cheese. No cheese was seen. On and On I think they could add a mirror and a tiny table to... More

We were just looking for a decent place to overnight and wound up having the best stay of our 10 day California trip. The hotel had old charm and great amenities. We booked a basic king room and were offered an upgrade for $10 more... How wonderful that upgrade offered was a big surprise. A corner tower room didn't only... More

I enjoyed my stay here, and loved the history of the Hotel. My room was in the historic side of the hotel. The floors are uneven and creak when you walk, and the area smells old. This is not a put-down, this is a plus for me! It adds to the charm of the hotel. I felt as though I... More
