The historic Idyllwild Inn (since 1904) is located on 5+ acres in the heart of Idyllwild, CA. Idyllwild is within a 1-2 hour drive of diverse locations like Disneyland, Coronado Island, and Hollywood. At the Inn you can sit on your own deck under the pines and oaks, feeding squirrels and relaxing in the great outdoors. What makes the Idyllwild Inn so unique is its rich history and within minutes our guests can experience the best that Idyllwild has to offer. Since we are located in the center of town, our guests can walk to several great restaurants and many excellent shops and art galleries. A short drive can get you to some of the best hiking and mountain biking trails in Southern California. Our desire is that soon you will come and enjoy this amazing little town in the San Jacinto Mountains and join our little family here at the Idyllwild Inn.

I read the reviews about this Inn, since it was my first time visiting Idyllwild, ca I wanted a place to stay and be able to walk around an explore Idyllwild. You are surrounded by ponderosa pines and a Central Park across the street from the Inn. We were able to explore shops, lots of restaurants and numerous hiking trails. So for me this was the perfect place to stay, the staff were warm and welcoming. Our hotel room was “ Old West “ theme with a large fire place, we just loved loved this place. In fact we are planning on coming back again this year.

Property's Favorite Review
We absolutely enjoyed our stay at the Idyllwild Inn, it’s in a fabulous central location in town. The cabins are rustic but very clean and quite spacious. We stayed in cabin #3 with just a couple and two dogs and the space was perfect. I would highly recommended staying here. The rustic cabins do not have AC but do have heat and wood burning fireplaces, each also has a nice deck. Well equipped kitchens with everything you’d need to make a meal.

I always have a wonderful time at your cabins, I’ve stayed there 5 times but the last time, I stayed at #8, I noticed the bricks below the fire place were not that high. I stubbed my foot on it and thought it was dangerous. I actually did end up falling over it and hurt my knee. I didn’t tell the staff because altho it hurt, I’m pretty strong. I just wanted you to know maybe you could get it fixed. Other than that, I had a great time. The view is amazing, accommodations are wonderful including the full kitchen. The staff could not be better. The town is full of lots of fun places to walk to. I can’t wait to go back. I had the most wonderful birthday there.

The front desk folks were super friendly. The room had a fireplace! We were there at the beginning of October and got a complementary bundle of wood for the fireplace. It is located perfectly for exploring the town. It was clean. We were really pleased. I can't find anything even remotely negative to say. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

This place had everything I was looking for. The staff was friendly. The cabin was comfortable, clean, and quiet. The property location was amazing because it is right in the heart of town but plenty of open space and trees. We were able to walk from the cabin to every place in town.

Great location right in town but feels far away in the trees. Quiet in our duplex # 21 . Studios 8 and 9 are near the road so I don't know how quiet. The internet was intermittent. Because it was not a secure network I couldn't sign on to some sites and couldn't use Chrome, but my Firefox was less secure and I could use that for email... Would be ok if you are coming to the mountains to "unplug." Good spot for groups who want to split up, some off to the wonderful hiking and some walking into town for shopping or Coffee.

Dear 955JanetB955, Thank you for your review. I am glad it was quiet in your cabin, I apologize for the internet and will reach out to Spectrum because we use their services and it is secured. Our location is perfect for all groups being in the middle of town and close to the majority of the hiking trails. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Pros: Very friendly accommodating and friendly staff. Love the new gift/mini store in the office now. Office hours are nice too. The Inn has lots of board games and dvds to choose from should you want a quiet evening. We stayed in a cabin that has AC. Thankful for that. The AC was very quiet. Our cabin was nicely furnished. I really appreciated how clean the kitchen was. I liked the private deck area. Loved our stay. Cons: Only negative thing was lack of lighting by the cabins. It's tough parking your car in the dark, loading, unloading it and driving back by the cabins. We didn't think to bring a flashlight in order to walk our dog in the evening before bed. Walking to the dumpster in the evening was an adventure due to low or no lighting. We didn't want to leave trash in the cabin that might create any bugs or odors.

Indian room is good size. Has small microwave, refrigerator, TV, DVD player, coffee pod maker, a/c and fan. Clean bathroom and small vanity area with sink. Beautiful surroundings. Walking distance to restaurants, coffee shops, and small markets. Only drawback: saw a few ants in the bathroom only at night; fireplace not cleaned so room smelled like bbq mesquite.

Prices went up but there are no improvements. The internet is worse (it took a long time to connect kept getting errors and kept disconnecting and you are supposed to call spectrum not them), the soaps are musky (not nice for women), and the rug is stained. Not worth the price.

555ndc, So sorry to read that you didn't have a 5 star stay. We strive ourselves for perfection and I will look into these issues personally. We use these reviews as ways to better ourselves. We haven't had many calls regarding Spectrum and yes you would call them as we pay them for Tech support, and they are the ones who are qualified to be able to assist you. Prices haven't changed in over a year.

We enjoyed staying at this Idyllwild landmark, using it as a base for hiking from Humber Park and the Deer Springs trails. Our cabin was on the edge of the property, and we loved the seclusion we had when relaxing on the balcony. The vintage inn, opened in 1904, is right in the heart of the town – across the street from a popular new brew-pub – and steps from town’s popular ice cream parlor and Rustic movie theater. There are various styles of accommodations and outdoor game areas for horsehoes and volleyball. Lots of PCT hikers coming through to recharge – the inn even had a box where hikers were passing on their extra gear and food.
