While motorcycle chrome and leather may seem out of place at a bed and breakfast filled with antiques and featherbeds, the two pair well for riders touring California’s scenic back roads and coastal highways. Many California innkeepers pride themselves on catering specifically to motorcyclists with amenities such as touring maps, bike rags, secure parking and special deals. Below are a few motorcycle specials offered by members of the California Association of Bed & Breakfast Inns.
Stay at the Albert Shafsky House Bed & Breakfast in the heart of Gold Country and enjoy the twists, turns and scenery along the gold rush highway (Historic Route 49). Cruise through California's gold rush history, past the American River, along routes lined with wildflowers and visit historic towns along the way. The inn is located just steps from historic Main Street in Placerville and offers off-street parking for motorcycles. Mention the CABBI Motorcycle Special and receive a 20% discount on your stay.
If you're planning a two-wheeled trip along the legendary Pacific Coast Highway, Elk Cove Inn & Spa has a deal for you. The Elk Cove Inn knows it's hard for bikers and cyclists to know in advance just how far they'll travel each day, and the inn can accommodate. Call the inn in the morning or just stop in and ask what is available. Travelers on motorcycles and bicycles will receive 25% off the room rate midweek or 15% off on Saturdays. Included are a gourmet champagne breakfast, complimentary afternoon wine and "make your own" cocktails with appetizers and a welcome basket of wine, homemade cookies and fruit. The inn also has a full service day spa to help you relax with a 10% discount on all treatments. The oceanfront inn has easy access to the beach and plenty of safe, off-street parking.
Motorcycle groups love Groveland, for good reason. Hotel Charlotte offers comfortable beds with off-street parking. Across the street, the Iron Door Saloon offers drinks on tap and live music most weekends. Yosemite National Park is only 24 miles away, and Highway 49 from Coulterville to Mariposa, a route known as "The Little Dragon," is a biker's haven, providing the perfect loop through Yosemite. Hotel Charlotte offers a number of specials for motorcyclists. The Bikers' One-Night Special includes a free dessert with dinner at Café Charlotte. The Bikers Two-Night Special includes 2-for-1 wine tasting at Cafe Charlotte. The Bikers Three-Night Special offers 10% off the room rate for stays of three or more nights. Motorcycle groups booking 10 or more rooms for four or more nights receive 20% off the room rate with the Bikers Group Discount. All rates include a hot buffet breakfast.
