A Historic Santa Paula Hotel
The Inn was built in 1911 when Santa Paula was a booming oil town. Its stately design is the work of architects Burns and Hunt, a firm renowned for their monumental properties throughout costal California. Now a Federal landmark the Inn has lived to tell of the colorful eras and antics spanned by its near 100 year history. True to its Wild West beginnings, the hotel’s 3rd floor once operated as 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 the gracious accommodations – and the bar.
