My husband and I felt that we were in a far-away place and time during our weekend at the Glen Tavern Inn in June, 2015. This mellow, old inn glows with charm and character. Our room was comfy-cozy: a soft bed, velvety old curtains that fully blocked the sunlight, and beautiful, dark wood. The wi-fi and cable TV both worked... More

Was traveling to San Diego for vacation and being an avid paranormal investigator decided to make the stop in Santa Paula to spend the night in the Inn, thats been featured in a few paranormal TV episodes. Even though it was a quite stay, it was a nice stay. Lots of history here. The staff was friendly and informative. The... More

Larger chain hotels should contact this establishment for Customer Service training. Everyone that I came in contact with was so warm, friendly and would put in extra effort to make you feel welcomed. It did not come across as fake or scripted......a very pleasant and positive experience.

The Glen Tavern is an Amazing Historical location with a true nostalgic feel. It was one of two Hotels where people who were relocated from the Saint Francis flood in 1928 where placed. Ghost Adventures, The Dead Files, Lisa Williams and multiple other shows and movies have been filmed there. The guys in the lobby know a lot about the... More

I was having a Christmas party and booked overflow guests here. They reported, variously, filthy rooms including vomit on one bathroom floor, stoned night clerk, shabby furniture, etc. Both fled before the night was over.

Sorry it's a cute little place in middle of town but the rooms aren't even as nice as a holiday inn. Maybe even a travel lodge. It is the nicest in town but Ventura is just 15 minutes away do yourself a favor if you can and go there. At least they have more modern hotels.

We stayed at the Glen Tavern Inn for the 3rd time and every time was a great experience. The rooms are like the Inn, antique like Victorian. very clean and most reasonable prices. Staff is great. Right in town so you are in walking distance to just about everything.

This was the only non-Motel 6 we stayed at on our 11 day Cali adventure and I am glad we stayed. The front entrance has a beautiful entrance with the well-trimmed hedges, flags and dark wood trim. The inside is clean, old and charming. The blonde front desk guy was super friendly and once he found out I like hunting... More
