Twin Inns, Carlsbad: 5 reviews and 5 photos

by matcrazy1

The increased traffic made it necessary to enlarge the Twin Inns. The Rotunda Salon was added in 1922. In 1936 the lobby and front rooms were remodeled to provide more space. By 1950 the combination of increased business and local street widening projects had made parking a major problem. The old Wadsworth House was razed to provide parking in what is now the north lot. In February 1961, Art and D.D. Morgan, son-in-law Eddie Kentner, Sr., took over the management of the family restaurant. They were succeeded in November 1969, by Bonnie and Eddie Kentner, Jr. In April 1984 the Kentner family sold the historic Twin Inns building and all its land. The new owners changed the name from the Twin Inns to Neimans upon completion of an extensive restoration in 1985.

The new and present owner acquired Neimans in August of 1996. Another extensive renovation was completed in November when a stage was erected and entertainment was offered. The elegant old Victorian mansion is now ready to offer a second hundred years of fine dining and service to San Diego's North County.
