Hotel Overview

It's always a great time to visit our fabulous Martinez hotel in sunny California, where fine dining, shopping, the Amtrak Station, and downtown are right down the street.

Hotels in Martinez strive to reach the bar set by our accommodations. Named after John Muir, the first naturalist who started Yosemite and Yellowstone National Parks, we're all about embracing nature. Hiking and biking trails abound near this Martinez hotel. However, we're also close to the marina for great fishing.

John Muir Martinez led this area when it came to celebrating natural beauty, but we don't skimp on pampering. Martinis on the Plaza is an annual event. This favorite cocktail drink was invented here. The annual King of the Country BBQ and Music Festival is a classic. Bass fishing tournaments are fierce in this neck of the woods.

If you're in the mood for some cultural treats, check out the national historical site that features the John Muir Association, his home and park. The friendly staff of this Martinez hotel are happy to help guests plan the ideal getaway. No other hotel in the Concord area boasts this kind of attention to detail.

This Martinez hotel hosts numerous business travelers who are looking to add a dash of adventure to their trip. Employees of Contra Costa County, Shell Oil Company, Kaiser Permanente and the Veterans Health Administration call us home while they're on (and off) the clock. Complimentary full breakfast is served daily. There's no better start to your day.

Book your next trip at the Best Western John Muir Inn and enjoy a vacation that blends nature with nurture!
