Beautiful,but in dire need of additional updating.Posted Aug 13, 2014
AC was horrible, downstairs subjects you to all showers, toilet flushes etc. noise. Moved rooms because of ac, then had a bed akin to pressboard. Over 100 yrs. old and they are working on it, but not quite there yet.

beautiful older tudor style facilityPosted Jul 10, 2014
Pros: its old world feel
Cons: need an all night attendant on duty for people arriving late. had to call them to be let in
Location: the city of Santa Paula is not that great but has a few things to see like the train depot. this hotel doesnt just the attention it deserves.
Very quite, it wasnt busy..i dont know why, reminded me of more like a bed and breakfast. lovely antiques...decorated nicely. the room was nice and comfortable bed. bathroom was spotless. definitely a different hotel experience and i would recommend anyone stay there. the price was reasonable as well.

Glen tavern innPosted May 20, 2014 on Hotels.com
3 floors, no elevator. Old quaint place. Continental breakfast in lobby late. A/C went out. 2 days to fix but they brought up new fan to help cool us down. Brought up ironing board and broken iron which was replaced after water went everywhere once filled for steam ironing. Bottle of wine was waiting in room...a peace offering? Employees nice. Restaurant has weird hours/days. Did not use. A whippet dog in lobby (owners) that was very shy but next day a large Great Dane also present in lobby.

Back to Small Town AmericaPosted May 5, 2014
Pros: We loved the historic feel and distinctive decor. We were definitely NOT in a generic big box motel. We felt extremely comfortable. Pet friendly.
Cons: Wish there was a breakfast and more of a selection of drink and snack machines and a book shelf of books to borrow or leave. Pillows were a bit thin.
Location: The hotel is in the Heritage Valley, about 20 miles inland from Ventura. Several museums were within walking distance of the hotel.
Glen Tavern Inn is a historical hotel built in 1911. When you walk in the door you are surrounded by history. You immediately take a deep breath and relax. Staff was friendly but not intrusive. The lobby, complete with fireplace, is large enough for several visiting groups to converse. The front garden offers more lovely places to sit and visit with friends. Coffee and water were available in the lobby. Room decor is period with modern conveniences. Because there aren't many places to eat breakfast in town, I wish their small restaurant offered a bit of breakfast fare. Sadly while we were there, the air conditioner broke down in one section of the hotel causing some discomfort for patrons, however fans were provided as a temporary 'fix.'

Enjoyed our stay for the weekendPosted May 5, 2014
Pros: Centrally located - within walking distance of the downtown area - it was interesting to say the least - very picturesque. Grounds well cared for.
Cons: In my room - the shower tile could have been cleaned better than what it was.
The lobby was like a scene from movie - it was comfortable and peaceful.

Great customer servicePosted May 5, 2014 on Hotels.com
The front desk staff was great from rearranging my room, giving information on the restruant and taking care of an issue in the room. The atmosphere takes you back to earlier times. I will be back.

Old time charm worth the stayPosted Apr 30, 2014 on Hotels.com
Old time charm caring and helpful staff, I was very impressed with the people that work there and the beauty of the place, I will return . I loved it over all. But to be fair to others who wish to stay it may be wise to have an understanding that this is an older building and a few things may still need to be fixed up a bit. I opened the window but it would not shut and the air conditioner did not work in our room.for 2 days even after they sent up staff to help and a repair man the next day. The effort was there but the issue still remained. Any where else I would demanded my money back and or left. But even with the issues it was worth it .I am believe that the issues I had have already been fixed. and i will return.

Everything about the Inn was very nice, except for the air/heating system. It was too noisey and had to be closed off at the register due to cold air leaking from the duct down on our heads is bed. This was in roon 103.

Historic HotelPosted Apr 28, 2014
Lovely old historic hotel in the heart of Santa Paula, with charm and warmth. The room was quiet and the bed comfortable. The only negative was the bathroom. The shower water was warm, not hot, and the toilet didn't flush very well. We only stayed 1 night so it was not too much of a problem, but on longer trips it would be tiresome. The location was great for a weekend wedding at Limoneira.
