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. The Occidental Hotel overlooks the small town of Occidental. It's a motel-style establishment, nothing too fancy, but a very nice place to stay if... More

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. Our room... More

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.

My son and I spent two days in this sleepy town, a getaway from the East Coast for me and respite from San Francisco for him. What a charming little town, a walk back in time with new and not so new Bohemians, dreds, pony tails, frisbee catching dogs, music, herbal shop, bakery, organic grocer, a few nice gift shops,...

This was an average hotel with a rock hard mattress and the thinnest walls ever. It was very clean however and I appreciated that. It was reasonably priced but I think for 3 nights over a $400 bill is a bit much for such a small room and not very many amenities.

If I could give this property zero stars I would.
