THE BURLINGTON HOTEL
ESTABLISHED 1883

PORT COSTA’S OLD TIMERS ARE QUITE CERTAIN THAT THE RUMOR OF THE BURLINGTON HOTEL BEING A BORDELLO IS UNTRUE. THEIR REASONING IS THAT THE RESPECTED OWNERS AND THEIR FAMILIES LIVED NEARBY, THEREFORE IT COULD NOT HAVE BEEN A BORDELLO.
HOWEVER, THE ARCHIVES OF THE ANCIENT AND HONORABLE ORDER OF E CLAMPUS VITUS WILL ONCE AND FOR ALL PUT TO REST THESE RUMORS. OUR RECORDS INDICATE THAT NOT ONLY WAS THE BURLINGTON HOTEL A BORDELLO, BUT IT WAS HIGHLY RANKED AMONG THE CALIFORNIA BORDELLOS OF THE ERA. THIS FIVE STAR RATING WAS MAINTAINED FOR MANY DECADES IN THE EARLY 1900’S.
