Places to stay in California - Hotel and Lodging Recommendations

    • Agoura_Hills
    • Alameda
      A former military bedroom community, Alameda features some decent restaurants and authentic blue collar atmosphere, but honestly, this isn't a spot you'd want to make a romantic weekend out of. There are better spots like Calistoga,or a Murphys, California bed and breakfast B&B in the Gold Country Wine Area, Mendocino and many other places.

      Ground zero to the most innovative dining of the last thirty years, whose influence has been felt around the world, from New York to Paris to Barcelona. Berkeley is a mecca to lovers of exquisite food and fine wine.

    • Burlingame

    • Calistoga
      Located in the heart of wine country, Calistoga is a small town reknown for it's cozy places to bed, restaurants, and fantastic spas. If you enjoy hours of massage and mud baths and the full spa treatment, you can hardly do better than visiting Calistoga. A great place to unwind and go home with happy memories.

    • Encinitas
    • Encino
    • Escondido
    • Eureka

    • Folsom
    • Fontana
    • Fort_Bragg
      A charming town along the northern coast, stay at a riverside Bed and Breakfast and dine outdoors overlooking the harbor as the seals playfully romp below! Fort Bragg makes a good place to stay and discover the greater Mendocino area.
    • Fountain_Valley
    • Fremont
      Why? Stay in a nicer town like San Leandro if you have to be in this neck of the woods for business.
    • Fresno
      There really isn't anything in Fresno, so it's probably best to avoid it. Nothing romantic here, but it's a decent place to stay if you are on your way to somewhere else and need to stop for the night.
    • Fullerton

    • Garden_Grove
    • Gilroy
      The garlic capital. Be sure to visit during their Garlic Festival in the last full weekend of July every year. If you're into garlicky food and old fashioned food and fun during the daytime then do visit. Makes for an active getaway that will provide lots of fun and smiles. Not your typical weekend getaway but it's a fun thing for couples and even families to do.
    • Glendale
    • Glendora
    • Grass_Valley

    • Half_Moon_Bay
    • Hayward
      If you can't say something nice then don't say anything?
    • Healdsburg
      Charming and bewitching little town with dozens of greate places to stay and dine. Healdsburg makes an excellent place to bed while exploring the surrounding wine country. Do visit Healdsburg.

    • Lake_Forest
    • Lake_Tahoe
      Lake Tahoe is known as a ski and casino destination. However there is much more to do, eat and see here year round. If you like nature, rent a cabin near the lake in the summer and enjoy cool evenings sipping chardonnay while dinner cooks on the outdoor grill. Oh yeah... Lake Tahoe is for lovers, indeed.

    • Marina_Del_Rey
    • Mendocino
      Mendo county, known for it's laid back attitude and fine eating and beautiful sights. Come spend a weekend near the coast, avail yourself of scores of cute cottages and B&Bs. Mendocino is a fine place to experience a mellow and romantic getaway. There are some wineries nearby as well as wine bars.
    • Mill_Valley
      Beautiful Mill Valley is close to Mount Tamelpais and Muir Woods. Not really a destination in itself, although it does have some decent restaurants and bars downtown, Mill Valley is a place to stay if you want some place quiet and charming and safe with excellent weather, with proximity to San Francisco, the woods, Sausalito, and close enough even for daytrips to the Wine Country. A great alternative to staying in San Francisco, a short twenty minute drive from Mill Valley.
    • Milpitas
    • Mission_Viejo
    • Modesto
    • Monterey
      A wonderful Central Coast destination, Monterey features many wonderful hotels and B&Bs. Try to choose one that is close to the action downtown. You're here to be spoiled so splurge on a lodging location in proximity to the restaurants and activities you may enjoy best. Don't forget that Monterey also features a fun cannery area includes a lovely aquarium just perfect for strolling and remembering how to be idle and have fun. Close by are a number of decent seafood restaurants. Not top class, but excellent tourist fare for lunch. Monterey is close by to many wineries, too.

      A hidden gem with many surprising qualities, it's a city with many fine restaurants, too many to count, including gems that will blow satisfy the most discriminating palate such as A COTE , the Wood Tavern and many many other fine restaurants.

    • Pasadena
    • Paso_Robles
      Pronounced passo ro-bulls, Paso is well known to Southern Californians as a great place for a weekend getaway. This is a wine and food type of place to visit. Spring and fall are wonderful times to visit. Summers are very hot so be sure to pack a cooler in your trunk for your wines if you're going to be hopping from winery to winery buying wines, that way your wines won't spoil. Many of the wineries here are world class and compare favorably with the best from France and Napa. Known for Rhone varietals and Zinfandel, with a smattering of unusual wines such as the Portugese varietals grown at Justin Winery. In fact you can even stay at the beautiful Justin Winery B&B and avail yourself of their swimming pool then sate yourself at their gorgeous restaurant with sumptuous foods. Delighfully romantic.

      Paso Robles is in the Central Coast region of California's wine region. It's about five or so hours from San Francisco and Los Angeles, so it makes a good place to stop if you're traveling betwee the two cities. Paso Robles is a fine destination for a romantic weekend.

    • Redding
    • Redlands
    • Redondo_Beach
    • Redwood_City
      Known for it's proximity to Silicon Valley and San Francisco International Airport, it's a good place to stay if you're out here for business. It's also known as a port of entry for cocaine and heroin so it's not really a romantic getaway destination.
    • Riverside
    • Rohnert_Park
    • Roseville
      A charming bedroom community that is a suburb of Sacramention. Not really a destination in itself unless you enjoy staying in a city that resembles the one you're getting away from.
    • Round_Valley

    • Sacramento
      The capital of California. Not really a tourist destination and most people go there because they have to, not generally by choice.
    • Salinas
    • San_Bernardino
    • San_Carlos
    • San_Clemente
    • San_Diego
    • San_Francisco
      The city on the hill, seven hills to be exact! San Francisco is a popular tourist destination. Many of the hotels and lodgings can be expensive at any time of year because of the brisk convention business generated by the Moscone Convention Center. However there are countless B&Bs that have loads of charm with prices that are often less than some of the more expensive hotels. Try Noes Nest in San Francisco's charming Noe Valley neighborhood. Located away from the downtown grit and noise in one this city's bedroom neighborhoods, discover great restaurants for breakfast, lunch or dinner. SFO, San Francisco's airport is actually located South of San Francisco. Expect a half hour drive to San Francisco with most taxis charging about forty dollars for the ride.
    • San_Jose
      Home to an international airport and a popular convention center, San Jose is the gateway to Silicon Valley with proximity to all the major internet and technology companies. Downtown San Jose featuresa few ok restaurants but this isn't my first choice for a romantic getaway. However if you're planning a business and pleasure trip, then you can't go wrong with staying at one of the major downtown hotels. Avoid at all costs any of the small family run chain motels that lie outside of downtown San Jose. They are nowhere near anything useful, the food at nearby chain restaurants is atrocious and gut wrenching, and the service at these budget motels ranges from indifferent to hostile. Please, do yourself a favor, stay at one of the lush major hotels downtown and be pampered and enjoy fine dining at one of the hotel restaurants.
    • San_Leandro
      Located in the East Bay, with proximity to several prominent cities such as Berkeley, Danville,San Francisco, and Oakland. Easy access to Oakland International Airport. Not a destination in itself, nor recommended as such.

    • Saratoga
    • Sebastopol
      A charming town formerly home to orchards now built up with homes. A bedroom community of sorts that was home to Peanuts creator, Charles Schulz. Sebastopol is a short drive to all the major wine growing regions of Napa and Sonoma Counties and makes for an inexpensive base of operations if you're going to be spending three days or more exploring the wine growing region and value quiet.
    • Sherman_Oaks
    • Simi_Valley
    • Sonoma
    • South_Lake_Tahoe
      A popular romantic destination, South Lake Tahoe features everything from motels, hotels, B&Bs, and luxury homes called cabins that can be rented for a most romantic getaway. In the winter expect snow and skiing, in the spring and summer you will find warm weather with lots of activities centered around the beautiful lake including hiking, boating, and fishing. As well there is lots of great dining and proximity to casinos. Enjoy!

    • Ukiah
      This is a small town that is still growing. Not really a destination, it's a central location for bedding down while investigating the nearby Anderson Valley, Mendocino and Philo wineries, and you'd rather spend your money on good wines than on a fancy place to stay. Neaby Philo is a small hamlet/village but more romantic and central to the winery action and doesn't cost much more than staying in Ukiah.
