this obviously is the nicest hotel in San Juan Bautista, with that said there isnt exactly alot of selection either. Room and hotel grounds were nice and clean, very courteous staff as well. The hotel had a nice courtyard and breakfast in the mornings. The rooms can be a bit loud (depending who is next door to you), seems like... More

Hacienda de Leal is a lovely spot! Impeccably clean, comfortably furnished, great breakfasts, delightful wine in the evening, and -- most importantly -- the nicest and most thoughtful staff we've ever met. We have stayed there two times, once mid-week and a second visit on a weekend, and we will return. San Juan Bautista is charming and worth visiting. Easily... More

My wife and I stayed here as a base for visiting The Pinnacles. Rooms are spacious and well appointed. Our King bed was comfortable. The free breakfast was above average except for the first morning when they ran out of the vegetarian pastry option. (We don't eat pork or beef.) Lots of luscious fresh berries. The staff is very friendly... More

We attended a wedding in the area and this hotel was one of the places that was recommended. There was to be shuttle service to the wedding site so I made the reservation. My first attempt at a reservation got no answer and no return call from the hotel to my voice mail message. I called back a month later... More

I would give it 5 stars except for the traffic noise. Friendly staff. Beautiful hacienda style renovation. Elegant and simple. Clean room and very comfortable bed. Breakfast in the courtyard was fresh and delicious.

This is a lovely hotel with lovely grounds. The room was very nice with a nice sitting area. However...there was very loud traffic noise until after 10 pm at night. We don't think any of the rooms are privy to blocking this noise. The continental breakfast was yummy. Also had a glass of Viognier wine from their sister vineyards: Leal... More

Just a lovely hotel, small, elegantly simple, well thought out renovation of an old lodge. Excellent, courteous service. Beautiful property in a charming little town. Serves breakfast in the courtyard in the morning -- and then lights all the trees at night, so that the whole place glows. Was with a group who all found it delightful.
