Great for family reunions

  • 5 of 5
This remote location up in the Northern Sierras is a fantastic place for family reunions. Each room has it's own bathroom, and there is plenty of space for all. Highly recommended!

A great get-away!

  • 5 of 5
Our church group recently stayed at this hotel for our annual outing. The hotel was very clean and comfortable. Commercial grade kitchen is awesome and large enough for a group of us cooking and preparing food together. The hotel managers were very helpful and friendly. On the day of arrival, the hotel managers were supposed to get off work by 7pm. However, due to traffic, our first car did not arrive until 9pm. They waited for us without having dinner and walked us through everything. We were so touched!
Everyone enjoyed the stay and felt three days passing by so quickly. We wish we could stay longer.
A side note: There are 11 bathrooms based on the website descriptions, so I thought in average two rooms share a bathroom. Wrong! Every hotel room has its own bathroom. The 11 bathrooms must mean public bathrooms.

One of the coolest hotels and areas

  • 5 of 5
This was our companies 13th year at the Union Hotel for our company retreat. Each year has surpassed the the previous. The staff that run the hotel do a wonderful job of making sure the facilities are in top shape and that our trip goes as planned. The bar area and kitchen have to be my favorite areas of the hotel.

I am an amateur photographer so this area is heaven to me. Every year I have been I can find new trails and areas to sight see and photograph. The rivers/streams with their deep swimming holes provide a fun (but cold) place to relax. The lake is also a beautiful place to see. The water is crystal clear (and cold as well).

Basically, if my company were to decide to do our retreat elsewhere...I would find a reason to go to this hotel/area for a vacation anyway.

Very Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and myself wanted to get away for a week. To find some relaxation. We decided to stay at The Union Hotel in La Porte... I must say this option was PERFECT~ It sits in the middle of this friendly small town, you are not just stuck in your hotel room you have access to everything, large deck with swings on the back porch, hot tub, we even played horseshoes. On the back of the property there is a green grass area with a porch and beded rock path. This scene would be perfect to even have your weeding at. ..... The staff make you feel right at home... beds were comfortable. You still have a family room downstairs to watch tv, read, visit etc... Now this hotel is close to a nice lake, many people were swimming, brought paddle boats out, wave runners etc. We went down to the lake and ate lunch one day. If you enjoy taking pictures you will take tons here.. Take a ride down/up the hill you will see soo much stuff, the rivers, hills, trees, just very pretty..... If you are looking for a place to go I would def refer you to this Hotel... I will be back....
