Lumpy beds, nightstands covered in dust, scratchy towels with holes in them, sheets that didn't fit the bed, stained lobby furniture, and a manager who couldn't be more snippy and rude - what else could one want in a hotel..if they might have lived in a tent before or something? The attached restaurant was a disappointment too. If it weren't... More

We lucked out and got the classic haunted room (307 – booked months in advance!). Can’t say that we had a truly haunted experience, but that is common with these ‘haunted’ rooms. They just might happen - maybe, maybe not…not like there is a guarantee with the room booking or anything! The true cool part is that this has the... More

Thank you for choosing the Glen Tavern as your place so stay during your business trip. I hope that the next time you are passing though Santa Paula you choose to stay with us again.

I love all things vintage and the moment we drove up to the hotel, we were greeted with old time nostalgic charm. It reminded me of the same charm of The Stanley Hotel... just filled with character and stories.... and murder! IF I ONLY KNEW THIS PLACE WAS HAUNTED!!! I love haunted places and I didn't even know I was... More

We stayed at the Glen Tavern Inn during the last week of April, as of now about three months back, but I don't think it has changed much in the past three months since it hasn't changed much since being built in 1911.

This hotel is full of charm. The rumors of "ghosts" are, to me, totally believable. We have stayed here several times and something unusual has usually occurred. Walls are thin, which is normal for an old hotel. Street side rooms are noisier, so better to stay on the back side. A nice getaway and not too far from Ventura.
