good value and pleasant stay. historic old hotel.

3.6 on September 12, 2014

If you are going to arrive later than the 3pm to 6 pm check in time BE SURE to call and actually talk to someone at the hotel (leaving a message will not do) as you need a code to get in and there will be no one at the desk. Other than that it was a very pleasant stay. The room was older but pleasant. Some of the yelp reviews say that their rooms were not clean but ours was clean and neat. It is not the fanciest place, but was very pleasant. We stayed on Sunday night so there was no problem with noise. Street parking. Nice downtown Benicia location.


Weekend getaway

This was a quick getaway that was close enough to home so we didn't spend time traveling. I loved that we stayed in an historic building and we walked everywhere! Didn't need to use the car at all so it was very relaxing and refreshing!! Benicia is full of California history so check it out!!

Loved the room and had dinner at Randy's down the street. Met some great people.


Benicia and the Union Hotel are worth a visit

3.8 on February 17, 2012

We loved the location, a short walk from the fishing pier and gorgeous sunset views. Jazz in the restaurant downstairs on a Thursday night was a real bonus. The room was spacious and comfortable, with interesting, slightly funky decor. We weren't even tempted to turn on the very old TV, and the in-room coffee maker made stuff that tasted like cooked plastic---but the wonderful old stained glass windows in the bar and restaurant make the Union Hotel a real destination.


Everything You'd Hope For From A B&B

4.4 on May 24, 2011

This place had me at "jacuzzi in every room." The beds are comfortable, the jacuzzi is big enough to stretch your legs across, water's hot, and room's are spacious and large even at the lower price points. We even had a refrigerator, sitting chair, and beautiful view from ours. The carpets are a nice touch and the room is beautifully decorated and easy on the eyes. Breakfast is no frills but made to order hot and fresh each morning - eggs, bacon, fruit, and toast with coffee/tea and oj - but ask for some cheese on the eggs and it becomes a diy bacon egg and cheese sandwich - delicious! Would come back in a heartbeat!


Best Surprise

4.8 on April 22, 2011

I planned my daughters birthday around this hotel and city. It was a more than pleasent stay. The hotel was more than accomadating! I needed to decorate her room and they worked with me through the whole thing. The girls had a fabulous time exploring this quaint little city. The room had air condition and a pull out sofa with a fridge and a microwave. Breakfast was included and seated in the Dinning Room and you had two choices to choose from. This hotel might just surprise you! My daughter and her guests loved it! Thank you Union Hotel for making her Birthday a great one!

Innkeeper Response
Dear Guest: I am so pleased you have enjoyed your stay at the Union Hotel. Thank you for kind words. We hope to welcome you back soon, Lidia


ok, not great

3.4 on October 11, 2007

I want here on my wedding night, after the hottest day of the year. The A/C was broken in the room that they had us in. We had to just live with the heat, cause they were booked. They moved us to a new room the next day, but I mean really. It was so hot, that we just sat in a tub of cool water most of the evening.

Innkeeper Response
I regret that you did not enjoy your stay at the Union Hotel. Since your visit in 2006, we have made many improvements to the property. Each guestroom has independent climate control to ensure a pleasant stay year-round, and the bathrooms feature luxurious Jacuzzi tubs. All guests of the Union Hotel can expect beautiful, comfortable accommodations. We hope that if you visit San Francisco again, you will give us another try.
