We were traveling to Julian for a friends wedding and apparently it was a busy weekend and most places required a two night stay (we only wanted one night)... and the two places that would allow for a one night stay were the Julian Lodge and some gross hostel type of place where you had a communal bathroom (YUCK.)
So with no other option, we booked the Julian Lodge for a Saturday night at $130.
Look, I'm not some hoity toity 5-star only type of person but if we're going to be shelling out $130 I would think they would at least change the freakin' sheets?! Which I didn't realize until we came back after the wedding at 12:30a- I pulled back the covers and saw my pillow with blond AND brown hair on it, and some gross yellowish stain on the bottom sheet.
What would any normal human do? Call housekeeping right? Oh no, here at the Julian Lodge, you don't get a phone in your room. Yeah, you heard me, no phone in your room. I slept on towels.
Not to mention our room had stains on the carpet, a lamp with a tattered and ripped lamp shade, no shampoo, conditioner or lotion and a busted old heating machine.
They call themselves a B&B- mind you "breakfast" is served from 7:30am - 8:45am. I couldn't even bring myself to go considering the quality of the room... I didn't even want to know what "breakfast" looked like.
Do yourself a favor and stay somewhere else if at all possible.
