San Benito House Coupons and Deals
Victorian Inn with Alehouse and Deli There’s an absence of modern distractions at San Benito House, an old-fashioned inn constructed in 1905. There are no phones or televisions in the guest rooms, leaving you free to enjoy the simpler pleasures on hand—a craft beer from the onsite alehouse, for example. The walls of the alehouse are decked out with chalkboards displaying a menu of sausages and 18 craft beers. Enjoy two well drinks on the house, or sample local and imported brews by the bottle or from taps. French doors and flower boxes separate the bar from the garden, where visitors and locals gather for coffee and conversation. At the onsite San Benito Deli, you can enjoy a sandwich made with fresh-baked whole-wheat, french, or olive-walnut bread. Antique furnishings decorate the guest rooms, which have been recently renovated. In one room, a floor-to-ceiling headboard is carved out of antique doors. In the bathrooms, you might find a Victorian claw-foot tub or a porthole made of stained glass. Keep in mind that the walls are somewhat thin in this 100-year-old building. If it’s loud in the alehouse, you can sometimes hear it in your room, so light sleepers might want to weigh their options.
