My friends planned a surprise weekend here for my bachelorette party, and we had SUCH a fantastic time! The hotel itself was quirky and fun with some great history, the food at all of our meals was excellent, and the staff was unbelievably helpful and so friendly! Best of all, we did the murder mystery weekend package, and it was a riot. Excellent performers who catered the show to the people in our party and made it personal, hilarious, and really special. We had a blast from start to finish. Loved the setting, loved the rooms, loved the food and all of the people. I couldn't have asked for a better time!

I planned a surprise Murder Mystery bachelorette party for a group of 13 at the Glen Tavern Inn and it was fantastic. The activity itself was great, but I was also incredibly impressed with the service and value we got at Glen Tavern. Monica was incredibly helpful with the planning, even though there was another event that she was managing that same weekend. The entire staff kept the event a surprise from my group, and the waiters serving our party in the private Houdini room even got involved in the charade, with fake names and the delivery of an occasional plot twist. The food at Enzo's was also fantastic. We weren't expecting much since we were eating there just in service of our event, but it was delicious start to finish. Several in the group were vegetarian or vegan and one was vegan + gluten-free and they catered the menu to both meat/cheese-eaters and the restricted eaters. In fact our vegan/gluten-free guest said the gluten-free capellini with tomato sauce and vegetables was the best pasta dish she's ever had. The cocktails were also fantastic. And there were no hidden charges - room rates were low, especially with the group rate, and the charges for dinner, drinks, breakfast, and everything came out to exactly what we had discussed - I was even allowed to choose how much gratuity to leave, which is so rare when you have a large group. The rooms themselves were quirky and comfortable which is a great combination. Overall, five stars.

Room Tip: Request a room with one or two beds in advance. The penthouse is nice if you want some extra space!

Great old style hotel straight from the 1930's. Santa Paula does not have much to offer anymore, but the hotel is a gem. Located right across from the Antique Train Depot, you can park your car, ride the train in from Fillmore, register, have a nice lunch at the hotel and then go back to Fillmore to get your car and drive back to Santa Paula to spend the night. If you don't want to ride the train you can still watch it come in and talk to the volunteers running it every weekend afternoon.
The restaurant is right in the hotel and features waiters who can sing Happy Birthday in Italian. It has been 2 months since our trip and we can't wait to go back. The value was outstanding, food was great and the atmosphere was wonderful. Old hotel so it creaks and groans, but that is part of the fun. Been a long time since i wanted to go to the same hotel twice. Old English feel to everything, maybe I will get to see it on a rainy night. With the fireplace and lobby downstairs it will probably be even better!

We booked the whole 3rd floor for a special event. The whole staff was wonderful from Monica to the front desk staff and the housekeeping staff. Our guests loved every minute of their stay in the historic Glen Tavern Inn. Would recommend highly to anyone that enjoys excellent service and makes you fell like one of the family.
