Bed & Breakfast - Private room · Canyon Lake Drive, Port Costa, CA 94569, United States

The Space

Enjoy a charming value-priced water-view room with a private bathroom and a full-size bed in The Burlington Hotel, Victorian jewel of the historic Old West town of Port Costa.

{One of 19 eclectic fun rooms in a California landmark!} The photo on this listing is an example of one of a group of rooms we offer at this price. If you choose this pricing tier, we will book you into one of these rooms with a private bath.

{How your patronage helps a work in progress}
The Burlington Hotel, built in 1883 and in continuous operation since, was once host to travelers visiting this once-thriving port. The building is one of California's most important landmarks. After decades of neglect, we are working with the hotel's owner to slowly improve the hotel. Your patronage helps keep this work going and insures that this wonderful old place sees many more generations of guests to come.

{Weekend café fare included}
Friday and Saturday night stays include complimentary fresh beverage (tea, made-to-order coffee, fresh-squeezed orange juice) and homemade, fresh-baked pastry of choice. Cafe is open from 8am to 2pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

{Eat next door at a world-class restaurant}
Enjoy Dinner and weekend brunch next door at The Bull Valley Roadhouse, now one of the Bay Area's top 100 restaurants and the hard-won endeavor of your hotel hosts, Earl Flewellen, Samuel Spurrier and chef David Williams. They recently made Condé Nast Traveler's list of the 70 best new restaurants in the world.

{While you are here}
Venture across the street to the sprawling Warehouse Cafe, featuring steakhouse grub, eccentric bartenders, colorful clientele, a 16-foot stuffed polar bear and the antique and oddity collective "Joe's Oddities. Or lose yourself next door in Wendy Addison's studio "The Theater of Dreams", a veritable dreamscape of Edwardian era letterpress-inspired creations. And a few steps up, browse the sand-lined Port Costa Surf Shop, where you will be hard-pressed to find any surf gear, but instead Ron McKeever's own world of Old West hand-painted signs and quirky collection of antiques and vintage appliances.

{For the adventurous}
Guests can also take in miles of easily accessible hiking trails featuring panoramic views of the Carquinez Strait, all part of the East Bay Regional Parks that surround the small valley. Or walk along the rocky beaches lining the Carquinez Strait and explore the old pilings that once supported the old warehouses and wharves, all now a distant memory. If biking is your thing, a trip to the Martinez Amtrak station links you to all rail destinations in the region. Or bike into nearby Vallejo and board the San Francisco-bound ferry that lands you smack dab in the heart of things at the famous San Francisco Ferry Building.

{Getting here and parking}
Parking is free and plentiful in the adjacent lot. There are nearby services in the same block, including two restaurant/bars and a post office. The nearby town of Crockett has bars, antique shops, gas stations, parks, and restaurants.

By car, Port Costa is 43 minutes from San Francisco and 37 minutes to Napa. The hotel is also accessible by bicycle. There is no public transportation in Port Costa. The nearest bus stop is for the WestCAT Route 11, which is adjacent to the John Swett High School in Crocket, 2.9 miles away.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Charming hotel, you can tell it carries a lot of history! Our room was well sized, overlooked the water and had a private bathroom - the shower pressure was amazing. Great vintage pieces throughout the room, really representative of the time period. Cafe in the morning was great, coffee, bacon, biscuits, what more could you need! And of course Bull Valley next door was amazing for dinner, and good times both day and night at the Warehouse Cafe. Drove down the hill to the hiking trail - all in all a perfect one day excursion.

  • We have been wanting to stay at the Burlington Hotel for quite some time now and it was worth the wait! The place was very quaint and even more than we had hoped for! The pastries in the morning were not only delicious but the cafe was adorable! The smell of bacon in the morning is always the best way to wake up. Although we didn't need them, they provided ear plugs just in case you are bothered by the train or the noise from the warehouse bar, but I found that we didn't even need them! The decor was wonderful and everything was perfect.We even got to peek into the other rooms that were not being used and they all were different, yet spectacular! Can't wait to go back again!

  • Staying here was fun! And exactly what we expected. Don't expect the lap of luxury, that's not why the Burlington exists. It was wonderful to wake up and head downstairs for pound cake with honey. The only thing was that we were facing the Warehouse on a Saturday night and it was a little noisy, so pack earplugs if you care about sleeping (but then again I don't think that's why people come here). Thank you for the great night!!

  • As advertised, this is a very unique place to visit. I enjoyed it very much and felt like I was on an adventure. The rooms were clean and the folks were friendly.

    The locks on the room were very old and flimsy but the little town did not feel unsafe. I thought it was fun and hope that they continue to keep this unique hotel open.

Hailing from South Carolina and Louisiana, my partner, Samuel, and I moved to the quirky town of Crockett, CA after many years living in San Francisco and Berkeley. We soon found ourselves down in Port Costa where we ventured to start a small bee farm. What began with a few bee hives grew into an array of endeavors. You can still stop in to taste and buy our local honey, but we now keep ourselves (and our friends and neighbors) even busier running our little café, managing the Burlington Hotel and operating The Bull Valley Roadhouse adjacent to the hotel.
