“Very pleasant experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2011

I read some of the reviews and wonder if I stayed in the same place. I found the Lopez's to be pleasant and welcoming. The room was clean and provided everything we needed. Breakfast was nicely served. Overall, it was enyoyable and I plan on staying there again.

The room was perfectly clean comfortable and quiet. Several wedding parties going on. Ms. Lopez and her staff were friendly and sweet. After reading all the bad reviews, I was really nervous, but there you go. The written word can be a dangerous tool. Give this place a chance if you skipped it because of what might be some sour apples. I'm glad we did! Good value,

Too many problems made the stay unpleasant. The front desk is unfriendly. The water went out on Sunday morning. No drinking glasses in the room. Pilot not lit for the fireplace. If you miss breakfast (as we did), coffee is not even offered. No hair dryer. One is provided if you ask but the front desk acts as if you will steal it!! In general, the staff is negative.

Room Tip: Stay in another town

Friends and family some of which are former local residents have spent many wonderful stays here over the past 15 years. On our last stay the management charged us extra for a room that we never requested and never booked. We are pretty meticulous about our record keeping, yet the owner, Mrs. Lopez was adamant that we had to pay this extra fee for the room. It will be an inconvenience for our group to stay at another location, as this was the central location that we all enjoyed, despite its flaws. The lack of gratitude and customer service by the owner, Mrs. Lopez, was embarrassing to us and those in our group. We will never stay here again unless there is a change in ownership by some smarter more savvy business people. Our treatment there after so many years of loyalty was appalling.

Room Tip: Ridgemark Country Club is nearby.

We stayed one night at the "Posada." The outside looks nice, the lobby is impressive when they turn the lights on but our room was dismal. It seems as if the motel was formerly a really nice place, but now sadly quite worn down and in need of maintenance. The carpet was dirty, the chairs stained, the bedspreads were thin and stained. The mattress was old and hard and smelled like dirty gym socks. Ditto the pillows. The toilet leaked and when notified of this, the management did offer to let us change rooms but by then we were "settled in." I would never stay here again. There is another option in San Juan Baptista possibly worth trying. Go to Gilroy or Hollister. The town is charming with feral roosters and chickens everywhere, lots of antique shops and the mission.

Our group has been staying here over 10 years, same time every year. We have watched the steady decline of this once nice place. I won't write endless paragraphs of detail, but this time they ripped me off with a room switch....no attempt to make it right. Check-in clerk claimed an employee booked rooms, then quit and took records with her, so our room got changed. Owner denied all of that. Be very careful if you decide to stay here. They have a rapid and regular turnover of employees. If you have any reason to deal with management, flip a coin to see which personality she will present to you. We will never stay here again. So the owner got me for about 100 bucks, she lost the patronage of 4 to 10 guests every summer. Great way to do business! I laughed at the one post proclaiming the Posada the best choice to stay in San Juan....there are only 2.......LOL! Do yourself a favor and stay at Ridgemark Country Club nearby in Hollister. It's close, much nicer and by the time you get ripped off by Mary it will cost about the same! I would be surpised to see the Posada remain in business much longer under this inept ownership.......

At the charming Posada De San Juan we stayed for Presidents weekend and throughly enjoyed the quiet small hometown/ ranchstyle feeling this hotel brings. It's just two blocks from Mission San Juan Bautista and Shoping. There is a great little Musical/Drama Theater down the street. Every year they have a wonderful Christmas show. Everything anyone would expect for a small Historic town like San Juan. I visit and stay at Posada De San Juan every year and continue to enjoy my stay more and more with each visit. The owner is very gracious and kind. She puts out a quaint continental breakfast. The staff is eager to accommodate with towels or any such items. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who loves San Juan Bautista.
