Built in 1911 when Santa Paula was a booming oil town, Glen Tavern Inn has been beautifully restored to its grand historic character, giving travelers a timeless Southern California experience. The stately design is the work of architects Burns and Hunt, renowned for their monumental properties throughout coastal California. Named a national landmark in 1981, the magnificent 35-room Inn has been reinvented to tell of the colorful eras that spanned a 100 year history.
True to its Wild West roots, the hotel's 3rd floor was once a gambling parlor and house of ill-repute. During Prohibition, a speakeasy was added to these dubious diversions. In Hollywood's early hey-day, the town was a favorite big studio filming location. Stars including John Wayne, Carol Lombard, Harry Houdini and Steve McQueen enjoyed our gracious accommodations - and the bar.
