Occidental was absolutely magical!!! We had the best time. The hotel was immaculate and the staff so friendly. The restaurant directly across the street was the best! We went twice for breakfast both times had excellent food and a very friendly staff.

We used to stay here regularly when it was known as the Occidental Lodge. Our last stay was about 4 years ago, and the placed definitely looked "tired." Since becoming the Occidental Hotel, the facility has definitely improved. The large rooms and grounds have been upgraded. The rooms are still large and clean, furnishings are newer, and the bathroom sink... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here. It's an older hotel but updated and quaint atmosphere. Room and bath were clean, staff friendly and helpful. Pool was sparkling clean. Beautifully set in the woods. And great restaurants a shirt walk away. Definitely recommend!

The photos do not do justice to this motel: the rooms are big, the beds really big and everything else is well appointed. The desk staff is very friendly and helpful, and gave great recommendations for dinner and breakfast. And in a town with no cell phone nreception, free wifi is really appreciated.

We wanted to have a nice night out while we visited our family. We went to Negri's for appetizers and drinks and returned to our room. We were in the room for less than an hour before we discovered bedbugs in our bed. We were horrified and immediately left the hotel. We informed the manager but he rudely dismissed us.... More

Hello to all the Tripadvisor Community, It is with great frustration we feel obligated to respond to this retaliatory and untruthful review.

$277 may seem a lot for an upscale motel room for three guys on a motorcycle trip but this was TWO rooms each with queen bed; shared bath and separate living room and a real kitchen!

This is not a 5 star hotel, but is so neat and clean that you would think it is. The front desk was very accommodating. Occidental is not so large and the hotel is within walking distance of all restaurants and shops.

My wife and I stayed three nights over the Fourth of July weekend. We'd been through Occidental many times, as our kids have gone to a nearby summer camp for years, but we had never stayed.

Quaint old-style motor lodge with charming colorful outdoor pots and hanging plants, located in a gorgeous woodsy setting, with a friendly staff. Since the building backs up right to a mountain, I don't believe there are any private decks or balconies, but there is a very nice outdoor pool in a quiet, serene setting with comfortable seating choices.

We really like Occidental Hotel, because it's clean, affordable and the staff is always pleasant. Although a big wedding group filled the place, it was still quiet the Saturday night we stayed there. The town is so quaint and friendly, and there's a great breakfast restaurant across the street.
