Take a step back in time during your visit to Temecula.  From supernatural sightings to Hollywood films, this iconic Temecula hotel has been the setting of memorable experiences for almost a century. Built in 1927, the hotel is located in the heart of Temecula's famous Old Town, right on Old Town Front Street (Old highway 395) on the corner of Fifth Street. Walkable to first-class restaurants, shops, and bars. Live music and dancing can be found on almost any day of the week in Old Town and there is a fabulous farmers market on Saturday mornings! Wine tasting tours pick up across the street, with Wine Country only being a short 10-minute drive away.

Newly updated in 2022, the six guestrooms have been decorated to commemorate a special event or person in the hotel's century long history, e.g., Erle Stanley Gardner (Perry Mason) stayed at the Inn prior to purchasing his home in Temecula & rumor has it, so did Clint Eastwood, while shooting an episode of the T.V. Western, Rawhide. 

The hotel used to house Temecula's only Post Office and telephone. Joe Winkels, who owned the 'Blind Pig Saloon" at what is now the Olive Oil Company, stored his liquor on the hotel's property during the prohibition years, and the very first episode of 'The Invaders' was filmed in part in and around the hotel in the 60's.

During the remodel we left the doors and floors etched with memories of days gone by alone. We blended in modern comforts to make your stay more enjoyable, but rest assured most of the rich hotel's history was preserved. 


    The Palomar Inn was one of three original hotels built in what is now Old Town Temecula. It was the first 'modern' Hotel - with electricity and indoor plumbing.

    The Inn's in-room sinks as well as the clothing racks are originals from 1927.

    The Inn and the Swing Inn Cafe (then Mother’s Café) are the only two historic buildings in Temecula that still contain the same type of business that existed when they were both built in 1927.



    The front part of the yard is available to hotel guests to enjoy during their stay (excluding some special events in Old Town, please reach out to confirm Yard availability during your stay). The entire 1700 Sq Ft yard can be booked by hotel guests only, who wish to celebrate a birthday, baby or bridal shower, or may decide to elope on a whim. Prior notice is required.
