“Anniversary weekend at the Inn at Churon”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

My husband and I stayed shortly after Christmas at the Inn at Churon in Temecula. We purchased a 2 night deal through Travelzoo and stayed in room 211, with a view over the front of the inn. Our room was nice, the fireplace is on a 60 minute timer, which is a bit tiresome, but throws heat quite well. The bathroom is quite large, and has obviously been remodeled. The bed is comfortable. It includes a refrigerator that is quite large. The tv reception and channels offered were on the minimal side, so don't come to watch tv. I recommend bringing some things to stock the fridge as you are about 10 minutes from town and only breakfast is served on site. The staff was quite friendly and accommodating. THe breakfast is delicious -- there are about 6 options to choose from. I had the omelette and liked it so much that I got the same thing the next day, my husband did the same with the croissant sandwich. The evening wine tasting is wine only -- no cheese or crackers, but the pours are quite large, almost a half glass. There are two vending machines that were almost empty, and the hallway decor and paint could use some updating but it was a really nice getaway, a great escape for the weekend and a good location. One note, the heater worked quite well, but we like to sleep in a cool room in the evenings... the ac was programmed so the temp could not go lower than 70, so we had to sleep with the door to the patio open.

My wife and I were celebrating our 25th anniversary. This was our first adventure to Temecula and wine tasting in the area. Upon arrival, we were greeted by friendly staff. They let us know of the special daily wine tasting for Inn guests from 5:00 – 6:00 (Saturday 5:30 – 6:30) and of the complimentary breakfast for guests. We reached our room and were impressed at the size. High vaulted ceilings (on the 2nd floor), gas fireplace, and a large balcony to enjoy the view. The oversized bathrooms were also a treat; 2 sinks separated by a shower and a large triangular jetted-tub. The room also came with a complimentary bottle of Churon wine. We found out that if you don’t like the kind they put in your room, you can exchange it for any variety they are serving during the wine tasting.

The wine tasting consisted of 7 varieties (not all of the samples they have, but a decent selection for our novice palettes). The tastings lasted for 1 hour and you were allowed to try them over and over as time permitted. The first day, crackers were available; Day 2 we only had the wine (good thing we had dinner before the tasting!). Friendly servers were available to answer questions about the wine and/or Inn; even recommendations about places to get dinner.

By reading some of the reviews, we had assumed that the breakfasts would be typical continental style. Way wrong! A menu with 4 choices of eggs and French toast were available. We had omelets and eggs benedict and eggs Florentine. All plates were very good and fixed to order.

Wine club is available @ Churon. Bottles of wine are discounted for those who stay at the Inn.

Would we go back again…? Yep! We’re thinking of making it our annual retreat before the Christmas holidays.

Room Tip: Most rooms face the road & have the best view. Those rooms on the back side view the parking lo...

This is the 2nd time at the Inn at Churon Winery. The staff is friendly, a type of family run B & B. A very nice happy hour, though this time cheese and crackers were not offered. There is only 24 rooms on a boutique vineyard, all with a view. Yes, it does need a bit of TLC, but it would not stop me from another visit: a piece of wall paper gone, a dripping faucet. I love the spa tub but ran to the local CVS for my own soap and bubble bath. Gas fireplace in the room which adds a romantic touch. The breakfast is the best I have had at a B & B, I would usually skip breakfast. Cute gift shop with a French and Wine theme. Enjoyed the shopping in Temecula along with the restaurants. A great weekend or during the week 3day/2night get away.

Room Tip: I like the lower level, midway.

Before I go to any hotel I always look at reviews, past and present! It seems one fact everyone agrees on, THIS PLACE NEEDS ALOT OF MAINTENANCE AND TLC! I ed and spoke to a friendly man who did not avoid my concerns and seemed surprised that anyone could find fault with this resort, loyal employee...But one review after another all saying the same things, the ownership needs to wake up and listen to what guests are saying, or lose alot of future business!
Housekeeping and guest service seems in need of a major tune up!
The property has major potential, and is unique but things do need attention!

Room Tip: walk the property and inspect your room prior to your visit and decide your own review!

We loved the size of our room. View was good, but the grounds need a little help (sickly hedges, peeling paint on outside, outside doors that didn't close, no parking lot lighting--very dark!) Bathroom was excellent, except for lots of webs/dust above head height and a little mold here and there. Everything worked well in our room and bathroom and looked well-maintained. Woman at check in did little more than business-like check-in and nothing else. Upon departure she was a little more friendly. Breakfast was GREAT and so was the wait staff in the dining room. We didn't bother to complain about the ants that invaded our toffee and my husband's vitamins, due to the previous comments about complaints with ants. I know we will look for another place to stay based on the aging of the facility and staff friendliness. It was certainly a great deal with Travel Zoo Voucher, though!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 208, but read here that room 101 was awful. We didn't hear a thing from our ro...

The “Churon Chateau” is on a hill overlooking the vineyards of Temecula. Although it could use some tender loving care including manicuring the gardens and a paint job throughout, I give it 3.5 stars because the rooms were large and comfortable and the Travelzoo price was reasonable. The Travelzoo deal included a bottle of wine, wine tasting, and a full hot breakfast daily. Our rooms were on the bottom floor with a patio, fireplace, and huge marble bathroom boasting a Jacuzzi tub. There was plenty of closet and bureau space to put our clothes, internet access was complimentary (and I must have access to the internet), and there is a very large, empty refrigerator in each room. My bugaboos with hotels are charging for internet and stocking the refrigerator with items we don’t want. Churon received an additional point for not doing either of those irritating things. The Inn at Churon does not have a pool, spa, or fitness center and the lovely water features were not working when we visited to a pipe leak.

Churon is centrally located near all the wineries. Parking is complimentary as it is at all the venues we visited. The staff is welcoming and everything is very clean. We loved having a lawn right outside our doors with the ability to visit our friends next door. We really enjoyed our stay and it didn’t break the bank. We look forward to returning soon.

Room Tip: Ground floor is great if traveling with other families. Large French doors open to the lawn for easy...

We wanted to spend one day/night in the SoCal wine country while on a trip to a wedding in San Diego. This town and hotel did not disappoint! It is located about 5 miles outside of the main street action in town, but is worth the short drive. The hotel could use an update, but we figured it may have been part of the "charm" to the vineyard/country like setting. The room/bathroom were large. Our room was on the first floor and had a small porch overlooking the vineyard which was absolutely gorgeous. The evening wine tasting was average and somewhat typical of most wineries with the cheese, crackers. Wines were delish. That afternoon was stopped at another winery nearby for tasting which was also fun. It could be walking distance if you did not mind a small huff to avoid any possibility of DUI. But I think the cops pretty well stay away and do not harrass tourists bringing in and dropping $$$. The breakfast receives a solid B rating. You can also sit on the porch with a view, otherwise the room is kind of tight depending on how many folks are visiting. Service was average.

Room Tip: Vineyard view otherwise you are looking at the road.
