Absolutely wonderful hotel and dining experience. Immaculate room, super friendly and helpful staff, beautiful gardens, delightful pool, and incomparable meals in the tree-shaded outdoor dining area at the Blue Wing Saloon. Would go back in a heartbeat.

For luxury, comfort, and extremely pleasant service, the Tallman was first-rate. We had a large garden room with a deck and an Ofuro soaking tub--bliss after a grueling day on I-5. We never made it to the pool. The breakfast was deluxe by continental standards: fresh fruit, house-made granola, yogurt, hard-cooked eggs, scones and other pastries, good coffee. Blink and... More

Stayed here for the weekend. Had a veranda room in the hotel. Quiet, comfy beds, wonderful bath. Great breakfast in the morning. Attentive staff. Wonderful food right next door. Has a pool/ spa area. Sat on the veranda outside my room in the evening.

I bought a night's stay at the Tallman Hotel at a silent auction fundraiser. I had never even heard of the place. I took my 91 year old Mom for a birthday gift. We both LOVED the place. The staff was very friendly and efficient. The amenities were excellent, including the Molton Brown of London bath and body products in... More

The Tallman is a lovely, stylish hotel located on a sleepy one-street town miles from anywhere else. Don't expect any services in town except for the great corner grocery/convenience store- but that's ok, because the Tallman has a good restaurant, nice pool, live music and is really a relaxing oasis. The best restaurant food is the basics- burgers, etc. It... More

We just returned from a visit to the Tallman House and all I can say is good things about this place. Charming place and super nice people, the owners as well as the staff. The attention to detail is amazing it is like stepping back in time. Visit here and sit on the rockers in the front or enjoy the... More

Stayed in Room #2 - the most quiet, lovely and comfortable room I may ever have stayed in! The staff went the extra distance. I asked for bubble-bath (for the huge claw-foot tub!), and they didn't have any, but she managed to hunt down some wonderful bath salts instead. Gardens and pool are well maintained. I am now looking for... More

This is a great gem tucked away at Clearlake. Went with friends who stumbled upon it by accident & what a nice place. They have jazz on Sundays & blues on Monday. Very enjoyable. Great food at the Blue Wing Saloon as we'll. very friendly staff,

A lovely respite while visiting family in the area. Have always been pleased, and will continue to make the Tallman my home away from home. This is a beautifully restored hotel. I have stayed many times and never been disappointed. Rooms are comfortable and cozy, breakfast is consistently satisfying, and an adjoinig restaurant is also handy.

The first night of our honeymoon, we stayed at the Tallman Hotel-and I couldn't have been more thrilled at our choice. We chose a Veranda Room (room #2) which are in the original hotel. We LOVED it! A clawfoot tub so big I couldn't touch the end of it with outstretched legs, wonderful antique fixtures in bathroom (and the coolest... More
