This hotel was built in 1897 by a couple who were former Missouri slaves. It is a wood-frame Victorian hotel. We were in Julian for a wedding and decided to stay here. There are only 16 rooms but they all have their own bathroom. It is not luxurious but it is very well kept and very clean. The rooms are... More

I have stayed a many B&Bs and this place was among the best. Real feeling of stepping back in time. The staff was EXCEPTIONAL. Breakfast was huge and delicious. No skimping going on in this place. Rooms were comfortable, clean and quiet. Really enjoyed my stay and definitely coming back.

This place is fantastic! Great, friendly staff, super clean rooms. The breakfast is outstanding, as is the afternoon tea/coffee and desserts. Classic old hotel with a ton of charm. Will definitely be back!

So I wanted to visit Julian for the first time and I thought it would be nice to stay at an historic hotel. My experience with this hotel began when I called to make reservations. The lady/employee on the phone was EXTREMELY rude! Then the fact that they don't have their own parking is crazy! You have to park on... More

The Julian Gold Rush Hotel is a beautiful old hotel with lots of history! The upstairs rooms are small but they are the original rooms so very cute. There was a heatwave so was worried about the heat in the room but the air-con worked great...well at least in room 6 (Jesse room). It was pretty quiet and we had... More

Spent a couple of days in Julian to get away for a quick break. So glad I chose the Gold Rush Hotel. The owners are terrific, the hotel is a step back in time, in a good way! Clean, well-maintained and friendly. The breakfasts were great and the teatimes were welcoming. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

We returned to Julian for the annual old time fiddle contest and again stayed at this wonderful B&B. It was completely charming and so centrally located in the town that we parked the car for the weekend and walked everywhere. Our stay required us to change rooms (our fault—we booked too late!) but it was a breeze and the staff... More

Very nice rooms, tasty Tea Time, and wonderful breakfast. The property's comfortable ambiance seems to attract guests that lead to good conversations in the lobby sitting room, front porch, or back patio. Looking forward to a return visit.

Our daughter recommended this B&B and it did not disappoint. Although the rooms are small, the hotel is so quaint and situated in a beautiful little town. The service was excellent and the large breakfast was delicious! We were on our way from San Diego to Palm Springs and we were so glad we stopped in Julian.

The hotel staff was so great and friendly. Our kids came up to help us celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary and the staff made them feel at home too. I would go back and stay again. The rooms are clean and cute. I would recommend the Julian Gold Rush Hotel .
