We decided to stay overnight in Julian after a drive to Borrego Springs to see the wildflowers. The Julian Hotel was a lovely spot to choose, conveniently located, and a charming, cozy room was waiting for us. We were able to check in a little early and had a nice nap before dinner in the town of Julian. The staff, Joanna and Lisa, were very friendly and accommodating, plus the breakfast was outstanding. For the value, location, and. Harm, we'd stay again.

Always wanted to spend a winter weekend in Julian CA. This year Feb 2017 we did. My Girlfriend and I decide to go up to Julian for a weekend get away and experience the cold wet weather of Mt Julian. It could not be better than this specially when you check in to a very historical Julian Hotel. Cozy, cute and a blast from the past. The staff are very nice. They make you feel like you were there for a family visit... Best breakfast, specially their homemade oats. If you want to experience gentleness, purity and intimate with your spouse, partner or soulmate. Julian Hotel is the place.

Simply perfect. First time staying at the Julian Hotel, but will not be the last. We were in Julian for the weekend to enjoy the town, mountains and trails. The staff was fantastic and provided an outstanding, unique breakfast each day. The central location of the hotel was perfect to walk around town or travel to the local trails & neighboring towns. Defiantly visit Jerome's on the Hill for dinner. Go to the Kenner Horse Ranch for riding and Apple cider! And hike Stonewall Peak trail for a nice adventure, great views.

Our stay at the Julian Hotel was very nice. It was quaint, quiet, & romantic. This hotel has it all.... Cleanliness, history, wonderful breakfast, afternoon tea, & great value. We enjoyed our stay on every level. We will be back soon. Much thanks to the staff.

In the 1970's the rooms were small (still are) but they converted adjoining rooms into private baths. Very good remodel, preserving the look and feel of the historic 1880 hotel, but enter a different century when you step into the washroom. For B&B lovers, this is a dream. Your key bob holds a front door key, and so, once inside you are in a quaint private residential facility, quiet and homey (but with good WiFi). Breakfast is not to be missed, but don't miss the 5:00 tea either. Don't forget to try the coffee. We will be returning! This out to be San Diego County's go-to spot for a short get-away. There is still gold in them-thar hills!

Absolutely perfect! My husband and I stayed here while we eloped for our wedding. Before we even booked a room, the staff showed us the available rooms so we could be sure to choose the right one. They were also able to offer a generous mid-week discount We stayed in the detached patio cottage #19, which afforded us a beautiful room with private bath and fireplace in an extremely private/quiet setting. The little cozy cottage is situated out behind the hotel patios and features its own veranda with seating. We felt like we had absolute privacy but the luxury and convenience of the fully staffed hotel at the same time. As other reviewers have noted, the breakfasts here are incredible.In fact, the eggs Florentine were so delicious that my husband asked for the recipe, which they generously let us have. We were also able to have a special order for our main course. If you stay here, be sure to make your wishes known. The staff will do everything possible to accommodate you! Unlike other hotels that charge an enormous fee for anything out of the ordinary, the staff here allowed us to have a beautiful private ceremony right out on the back deck under the enormous oak tree--a really special place. They even provided a witness for us who took pictures and really seemed excited to be there. All of this, as well as the storage of our wedding cake, was provided at no extra charge whatsoever. They were also able to provide excellent suggestions for driving tours and activities and dinner recommendations. Others have already mentioned the special tea service--while we were there we saw many guests getting to know one another, although we kept to ourselves and felt completely comfortable. There are many private spots on the property if you prefer to make use of the games, puzzles, or copious reading materials provided for you. We are already planning a trip back to our patio cottage every year for our anniversary. For romance and connection, it can't be beat.

If you want to step out of the present and go back to the past (1800's that is), this is it. The Julian Hotel is a beautifully restored hotel true to it's late 1800's vintage with the necessary conveniences of the present such as in-room bathrooms added. The furnishings and decor are true to the late 1800's but without the dust from horses that undoubtedly passed by. The rooms are very clean and the bed mattresses very comfortable. Taller visitors such as myself (6'3") can be assured a queen size bed with no foot board. (The 1800's did not have California King beds!) I especially enjoyed taking in the atmosphere of the building. The breakfast was not your typical zapped danish and coffee, but hot french toast topped with a tasty apple topping and the best granola I've had, made by the cook on the premises. The Julian Hotel does not have TV but does have wifi. This turned out to be a plus as it causes you to actually talk to each other! The town of Julian shuts down at 7:00 p.m., so take advantage of a board game or one of the old books in the parlor. My wife and I spent one day at the Julian Hotel and I went back to the office feeling like I'd been gone all week! We'll definitely be returning again when we want to step back to a slower time.

The Julian Hotel is our home away from home. When we need to get away from our regular routine for some R&R, we always escape to the Julian Hotel ... just 1 1/4 hours away from our home. No phones, no TV, no mail ... just peace and quiet to renew your soul. A great value and incredible selfless staff.

Very Quaint -- small, but it was cold out and perfect for snuggling. The in room dairy was so sweet. The staff could work on being a tad friendlier, it's not like everyone has been to a bed and breakfast before :) The evening parlor games, cider and pie were great! A fantastic place to stay. We are hoping to make it a tradition

A friend and I recently spent a couple of nights there. It is a wonderful place to stay. The rooms were neat, clean, and absolutely beautiful. The employees were wonderful, Couldn't be any nicer. I'm looking forward to going back again next year.
