The location is great, and the first impressions of the place were very favorable, but I recommend that you keep searching for a little better place. Our room was cute in decorations and layout, but it was so dark in the room with the just couple of lamps (with very dark shades) and the single 25 watt bulbs, that it... More

Hello Randy, I hope your overall visit to Julian was enjoyable. I will take your comments in consideration and review the lighting in your room we definitely don't want a dark feeling for our quests. I haven't heard any complaints regarding the mattresses, I'm sorry you didn't have a comfortable sleep. We do take pride in offering something other than... More

In looking at the Julian lodge from the street it looks like it is a typical motel with decent rooms. But as soon as you walk up the steps you realize it is much nicer than that. The office is adjacent to the breakfast area which is decorated very nicely and set up with nice tables and equipped with plenty... More

Celebrating our 26 years of marriage at Julian Lodge was memorable, quiet, & very quaint. Everything we needed was there. The staff was fabulous. Breakfast & Tea Time "A MUST." We will definitely return.

We were hiking the Pacific Crest Trail and had even made a reservation, then ended up hiking faster than expected and arrived a day early. The Lodge was full but they bent over backwards to find us another place right down to giving us a ride to the other motel, then picking us up in the morning and allowing us... More

We stayed here for a weekend in February. The location is ideal - walk to everything - but it's set back a block from the main street so traffic noise is reduced. The owner was friendly - the continental breakfast was adequate. We stayed in the King-Suite which is very very large - with a refrigerator, microwave, large flat panel... More

My family had a great time during our stay-cation. Julian Lodge is right behind Main St. It's centrally located in the middle of everything so everything is within walking distance.

We stayed at this hotel for one night on the weekend. It was a last minute decision and we did not have a reservation.

On a trip to the California Wolf Center, we spent the night at the Jordan Inn. We would highly recommend this facility. The outside may look more like a typical motel, but the rooms were clean and charming (lots of "antique-y" pieces). Their breakfast offerings were more than ample and very nicely presented. Also, less than one-half block to shopping... More

The room was cozy and staff was very nice. Great breakfast. After the pet fee of 30$ (total), our 1 night was about 180, which I thought was on the expensive side but it was a weekend and it was last minute. We had a queen with a fridge and microwave (can't remember the level). Room was clean and bed... More
