4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Spent one night at this historic B&B. It was charming and filled with antiques, historic pictures and items, quilts, and rocking chairs to relax in. Games and puzzles abound which is helpful for family entertainment as there are no TV's or Phones. They do have free wifi available. The late afternoon tea was a nice treat, as was the delicious...

With short notice on our visit to 1 of California's best small towns, we found Julian golden rush hotel to be the cure to a quick get away dismissing TV's, and city noise. This ambiance is 1920's, very clean and staff very attendant to your needs. I look forward to my next vist soon.

We stayed four nights to celebrate our 41st wedding anniversary. Everyone was so helpful and enjoyable. The breakfast's and afternoon teas were delightful and delicious. Even though it rained most of the time we were there, we enjoyed sitting on the porch watching the rain. They even had a generator for when the electricity went off for the day. No... More

My husband surprised me with a weekend getaway for our 21st Wedding Anniversary. I had NO IDEA where we were going and after fighting traffic from LA to SD for nearly five hours, we were in Julian, CA. He made reservations at this historic hotel and made sure to call the front desk to let them know we would be... More

We used a Groupon ($89) for our stay and were not disappointed... what a deal! It's located in a great location right on the Main Street. We could just step out the front door and be at any of the charming shops/restaurants, such as the famous Julian Pie Co. Also, staff was very sweet and let us check in early,... More

The Julian Gold Rush Hotel has stood up well since it was built in the late 19th century. I was told that the rooms are small, but I stayed in one of the cottages on the property and it was perfect for a two-night escape from Los Angeles. The hotel staff is very gracious, and they serve an excellent breakfast... More

We love this hotel. The breakfast and tea time were great. The staff is very friendly and helpful. This place holds a special place in my girlfriend and my heart. We have stayed here twice and have plans to go back for a chilly winter stay as well. I highly recommend this hotel to everyone!

Be aware the rooms are very small. All rooms have their own bathrooms with a shower. We had room 10 that was supposedly haunted. We saw no ghost and slept better than we had in a long time Teams served at 5:00 pm and was a real treat. Freshly made croissants, cookies, dried fruit, coffee or ice tea. With 40's... More

Julian is so quiet and relaxing now, it is hard to believe it was once a rip-roaring gold mine town. Even tho the main street is a highway, after 5 p.m., you could be miles out of town. The hotel is lovingly kept and very clean. Every room has quilts appropriate to the era. The tea featured homemade croissants that... More
