If you want to enjoy Julian, be within walking distance of everything and get a real historic feel for the town, this is a perfect place to stay - just don't expect the accommodations to be modern or roomy. Like other reviewers we were given our choice of 2 rooms upon our arrival. Tiny, tiny, upstairs rooms that we could choose from with beds pushed up against the wall to make enough room to walk. Normally, in a large city with lots of night life it wouldn't matter if the rooms are tiny, but here in Julian at 9:00 p.m. the streets are rolled up and there isn't much else to do at 9:00 - no TVs in the rooms or in any common area, very thin walls, no room for chairs to sit in the room, and no common gathering area after 9:00 for you to sit/have wine, etc. with your friends. We sat outside on the porch with our wine which was pleasant and nice but couldn't move the chairs for the 4 of us friends to all sit together because they have the outside chairs chained to the walls! The weeknight rate was a bargain, the bed was perfectly comfortable, and the breakfast and tea hour were both great, but next time I'll opt to spend a bit more and enjoy a more luxury accommodation at Wikiup, Orchard Hill or the Artist's Loft that lends itself to a little more comfort and some nice areas for mingling with friends past 9:00 p.m. since we came up with another couple and wanted to be able to socialize.
