This building is the first Basque Hotel built near the Central Pacific Railroad lines that brought many new immigrants to Fresno and the San Joaquin Valley.

It was one of several establishments that catered to Basque settlers and their families in the valley. The combined hotel, restaurant, bar and handball court soon became a center of cultural activity for the Basque community in Fresno County and other parts of the valley. The good food combined with the familiar and friendly atmosphere soon attracted customers from the general population of Fresno as well.

This period revival structure was designed by Master Architect Eugene Mathewson and constructed in 1922. This structure was placed on the local Official Register of Historic Resources in 1996.
