My wife and I ate ate the Union Hotel with family and friends over 40 years ago while I was Stationed at Two Rock USCG BASE. Good memories, good food. Incoming traffic through Petaluma sucked, area has grown up, but the roads were nice in the back country. Little road side shops were nice, reminded me of the 60's like...

Occidental was absolutely magical!!! We had the best time. The hotel was immaculate and the staff so friendly. The restaurant directly across the street was the best! We went twice for breakfast both times had excellent food and a very friendly staff.

Located in the coast redwoods area of northern California. Nice room with all the necessary amenities. Even had real glass drinking glasses and coffee cups, not plastic as a lot of hotels. Located on the edge of town and close to dinning in town. Noise was not a problem as it is on a hill overlooking the town. Would stay...

The hotel is clean, tidy and right at the end of the main street of Occidental so convenient a good place for a stop over if on business or having a quick trip to the area.

We decided to spend the night at this hotel after attending a party in Occidental. It is very well located at the tail end of the village, adjacent to a few good restaurants.

Located in such a beautiful little town and it's about a 30min drive to most the amazing redwood forest. Very helpful and friendly staff. We came for a wedding and we had the most amazing time. They also have a pool but it was a little chilly when we were there.

Hello missemma2014, Thanks for staying with us and having such kind words. It sounds like you may have visited Armstrong Grove Redwoods which are spectacular.

We made a last minute reservation and we're delighted. Lovely room, wood burning fireplace, poster bed with canopy, wine tasting, and truly sumptuous breakfast. Couldn't be more pleased.

We used to stay here regularly when it was known as the Occidental Lodge. Our last stay was about 4 years ago, and the placed definitely looked "tired."
