California B&B Military Discounts
When you think of California, you may think of Hollywood or Los Angeles. You tend to think high paced, busy, celebrities, parties and lots of action. While those things are fun and amazing, there is so much history, scenery, wine, beautiful landscapes and reasons to visit California. Chain hotels are great to stay at, but sometimes staying at a B&B or boutique hotel adds a more customized, personalized and in the moment experience.
In honor of the men and women who serve in the U.S. military, several members of the California Association of Boutique & Breakfast Inns (CABBI) are offering military specials in conjunction with Veterans’ Day (November 11, 2018). Many of the specials are available through the month of November; others are available year-round.
- Calistoga’s Mount View Hotel & Spa extends a 30% discount year-round to active-duty military and veterans. With intricate Art Deco interiors and an on-site spa, the hotel offers lodging options ranging from cozy guest rooms to two-queen luxury suites. All rooms feature signature amenities like plush terry robes and slippers, high-definition flat-screen TVs, and aromatherapy bath products. The hotel practices what it likes to call “cause integration hospitality,” a charitable program that allows guests to indulge while doing good. Guests can call 707-942-6877 to book, and they should be prepared to show their military credentials to receive the discounted rate.
- During the full month of November, all active and retired military will receive a 30% discount at Sweet Dreams B&B in Los Angeles in honor of Veteran’s Day. The bed and breakfast is tucked in a quiet neighborhood in the heart of L.A.’s San Fernando Valley, but is still close to many attractions, including the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Universal Studios, Getty Center and Griffith Observatory. The inn features an inviting backyard with a swimming pool, Jacuzzi and a covered patio with cozy seating. To receive the discount, a valid military ID must be presented at time of check-in. To reserve, call 818-448-0835.
- Alder Inn in South Lake Tahoe is offering 20% off to all current and retired military for stays during the month of November. Owned and operated by a family that includes active and retired military, the inn offers an alpine experience anchored by large pines, quaint sitting areas, and a collection of entertaining family games. Located just one mile from local casinos and a five-minute walk to the lake and marina, the inn is the ideal base camp for exploring beautiful South Lake Tahoe.

For stays of two nights or more, guests also receive a $50 spa credit towards any couple’s massage or body treatment. Rooms at this Moroccan-inspired luxury inn face inward to a natural hot mineral pool, and no detail has been spared in creating this Moroccan fantasy. The inn is known for its lavish daily continental breakfast and its signature cocktail, the Morocco-tini. Guests can book by visiting elmoroccoinn.com and entering promo code VET18. Valid military ID is required upon check-in.
