Old charming hotel. Comfortable bed, great bathroom, sunny room. My dog was treated very well. Perfect central location. Walk to shops and shore. The elevator is noisy so stay away from it. Breakfast is basic. This is a B and B not a "hotel". I will return. I was delighted with it. I didn't eat at the hotel.

We only stayed for one night but the hotel exceeded our expectations. Very nice atmosphere and dining experience. Set in old town Benicia, anyone would have a great experience.

We love the Union Hotel, and will stay here again. Our room was large and comfortable, and the Jacuzzi tub is lovely to sink in to! We had the continental breakfast with was good, but did not have dinner in the dining room because we had an office Christmas dinner scheduled elsewhere. The dining room looked very inviting though, and the bar is beautiful. We would like to try the food here during our next stay. We highly recommend the Union Hotel, and thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay!

Benicia is a lovely town, and I was excited to stay in this historic hotel right in the middle of downtown. My room overlooked First Street, so easily walkable to several restaurants and shopping. However, there was quite a bit of street noise late into the night, especially with Farmer's Market on Thursday night and live music and big crowds on Friday night. The room was nice and very roomy, the bed comfortable, and plenty of hot water. Was disappointed with the "continental breakfast" which consisted of boxed sugary cereals, coffee, tea, and a couple pieces of fruit. I have eaten in the restaurant in the past, which was delicious, but did not eat there on this trip. Still, it was a good value for the money, and I would definitely stay again in the future.

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.

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!!
