I loved this place! In a single word…charming. The rooms were updated and beautiful, each with their own personality! The owner Matthew made us feel right at home with a cold beer, cute happy hour and delightful breakfast in the morning! I am definitely coming back!

I cannot say enough amazing things about our stay at The Westcott! Misty (the property manager) and Matt (the owner) are simply amazing! It was the most relaxing 4 days of any vacation I have ever been on. The property is soooo cute and I love how they are dog friendly (we brought our French bulldog). They also offer free breakfast, snacks, and happy hour. The other guests that were staying there on the property were also so nice but it also has the feeling of your own private residence. I was sad when I left because I didn’t want to leave but I know I will be back!

We booked this place because it was an Adult Only property and it looked charming. This place is just what we wanted and more. We felt very welcome by all the staff, specially Vianey, thank you. This place is small only 9 rooms, our room was very nicely decorated with some antiques but has a modern feel. We had an exceptional stay and we will be back in the future.

Because it was Coachella weekend, we picked The Westcott as one of the few hotels that had rooms. Didn't know what to expect, but pleasantly surprised. A prewar property with small rooms, but nicely updated and VERY friendly helpful staff. Nice amenties, snacks drinks available 24/7, and nice bedding toiletries.
