My wife and I were spending the day in Julian when I found the Julian Brewing Company (which caused us to have to look for a place to stay overnight...) The Julian Lodge was recommended by our bartendress.

When I called the lodge to ask about availability, I was greeted by a friendly voice. I was told how to enter the property after hours.

Upon arrival, we were met with a friendly, smiling face (after hours). We checked into our room, which was small, but cute and adequate. The bed was comfortable enough.

The breakfast was very good. It was just short of restaurant quality. There was coffee along with several breads, cereals and fruits.

If I were staying in Julian again, I would stay here.

Centrally located, but one block off main street on a quiet side street. The breakfasts were simple but plentiful, with lots of fresh fruit, cereals, toastables, and juices. We didn't use housekeeping service while we were there, but staff helpfully provided extra towels and TP upon request.. The clean fresh rooms are nicely decorated. Good to know that they accept pets.

Room Tip: In summer, a north-facing room is cooler. Pet-friendly.

Nice clean room with 2 beds. Good breakfast in the morning but it could have had some hard boiled eggs. Coffee available all day. We were in the room next to the managers living area on the 1st. floor. Room had a screen door so we could leave door open for fresh air during the day but the only problem was that people had to go by our room to get to other rooms on 1st floor or to the stairs for the rooms on the second floor and everyone seemed to look into our room. The antique furnishings were great. Took advantage of the special deal where the second night was half price. Would stay here again.

This hotel had nice big rooms and a very good continental breakfast. Staff was friendly and arranged for my late check-in. My only complaint is that the carpets seemed like they could use a cleaning. Great value and location though.

I hesitate to add the positives this hotel deserves for fear that my next visit might find the "no vacancy" sign swinging in the air. However the Lodge offers a quiet stay at a fair price in a super clean surrounding with a friendly staff and that covers the bottom line.  Location, location, location, one half block off the main street shields the traffic noise and allows the parking of the car for the entire stay. A warning, numerous opportunities to sample temptings pies, a true struggle.

In the small mountain town of Julian, this hotel is very central. The room was very fresh, furnished with old furniture that seemed genuine but still functional. The room was quite small with a comfortable Queen size bed. The bathroom was modern and functional. The room had WI-FI and a good TV. Coffee and biscuits were offered in the afternoon and the breakfast was plentiful and good.
A compressor (?) that stood outside was making some noise at night.
It snowed during the night and the city was very beautifull to wake up to.

Room Tip: I would choose a room on the second floor
