About Glen Tavern Inn
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 its 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.
The Glen Tavern Inn has been featured on many paranormal shows such as The Dead Files and Ghost Adventures. Most of the stories stem from its prohibition era which took place on the 3rd floor when the inn was a speakeasy and gambling parlor. There are two major claims. One is of the ghost named Calvin. Calvin was a cowboy that was gambling on the third floor. He was caught cheating at cards and received a bullet to the head in the dispute. Many years ago, during a remodel, a cowboy hat was found in a crawlspace with a bullet hole through it. The hat has since disappeared, but Calvin seems to have remained. Calvin’s Room is #308 and paranormal enthusiasts can book this specific room for their next paranormal adventure. The second major haunting is that of a lady of the night. The inn during the prohibition era was also home to a small brothel. The lore of Rose, the lady of the night, is that she was beheaded after servicing one of her clients. Her room is #307 and can be booked as well. For more information contact the Glen Tavern Inn at 805-933-5550 or online at: https://www.glentavern.com/.
