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,...

Hi jorjabarton, Thank you for the well written and informative review. Your description of the "flavor" of the Town and it's central location to all sorts of areas/activities is spot on. Thank you for mentioning our pool area as we feel it is a "best kept secret" here in the area for it's peaceful setting. If you make it back... More

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.

We stayed at the Occidental Hotel on January 23, 2016. We had an upper floor room with a nice view of the pool and surrounding woods.

It was a really nice place to stay at at a very decent price. The guy working at the reception, Ryder was really nice and helpful as to where to go in the area to hike. They even upgraded us to the suite just for fun.

If I could give this property zero stars I would. First off, I read on tripadvisor that their walls were very thin and requested a quiet room, yet was placed on the first floor, in the middle of the property where you can hear EVERYTHING above you all night long. Everyone in our wedding party was up all weekend from... More
