We stayed two nights. The breakfast was outstanding and the staff very friendly and accommodating. The hotel dates from 1897 and has lots of charm and lovely antiques. Lots of room to sit around in the parlor and read or play games; several are available plus puzzles. Rooms are quite small as was the case when it was built.

My BF and I stayed at the Julian Hotel. With a reputation as historical Julian Hotel is cozy. It takes you back when Julian was...

The house is comprised of a bedroom with a lady's sitting area, a bathroom, and a large living room. The rooms are very nice and secluded from the other hotel rooms. Breakfast...

We just experienced our 5th visit to Julian and our stay at the hotel was great, I won't share the room number where we stayed, it's our secret. Another great experience, however, it was the coldest and the rainiest time we've ever spent there! The fireplace in the lobby was very warm and inviting. The "tea time" was delightful with...

After visiting Anza Borrego State Park, we decided to stay in Julian, CA. Found a special mid week (suspect Winter only) deal that was amazing. The hotel was founded and built in 1897, so it's old, but in good repair and well run. The family now running it is the fourth owner and this family has run it for 40...

Found a good deal on Groupon for this quaint historic inn and decided to use it during Valentine's week. Arrived about two hours early after a scenic local hike and were able to check-in. Received a cozy 2nd floor room. Front desk clerk, Karen, actually let us choose from 3 options which was nice. We relaxed and walked about the...

We love this hotel. Very romantic and sweet. On the street of Julians main road we love the location and LOVE the hotel itself. A real feel of quieter days gone past. My husband and I made huge efforts to get there after being snowed/mudded in!!! WORTH IT.

On 19-20 January 2017 enjoyed a 2-day, 2-night stay at this 5-star fabulous hotel! Can’t say enough positive things about the hotel and the staff! The hotel itself is a living museum, with many photographs and memorabilia depicting the history of not only the hotel but also of the local community. Staying at the hotel includes a delicious daily breakfast,...

The Julian Hotel is such a great hotel to step back in time to the era of the Gold Rush in San Diego County. The rooms are great, the owners and staff are very friendly with great service and the breakfast is wonderful. We have been staying at the Julian Hotel for years and always want to go back
