Inscription.  The Pleasant Valley Hotel was erected by a number of local men to fill an urgent need of the city. The other hotels and boarding houses were filled to overflowing every night, and many a visitor had to spend the night on the streets. It was later purchased by Messrs. Patterson and Roberts, who made a number of changes for the better. The hotel was one of the finest buildings in the city.
There are pictures of an earlier Pleasant Valley Hotel, dating back to the mid-1800’s, made of lumber, hauled in by ten horse teams and wagons. This was for real the wild west.
 
Erected by Coalinga Lions Club.
