Nestled deep in the heart of the fertile San Joaquin Valley lies the sunny hamlet of Selma, home of a magical place called the Swan Court. This splendid Holiday Inn Courtyard is a full-service hotel with charming, 'bed and breakfast' style surroundings and exceptional guest service that has been recognized withthe Torch Bearer Award for five years. Our guests are greeted with warm smiles and staff members who are concerned with their comfort. Guests can be found relaxing in our lobby near a crackling fire, while enjoying a cup of complimentary coffee and fresh-baked scones or cookies. Outside is where the real magic begins. Here you may find a pair of black swans gliding gracefully across the water. They accent the many lovely waterfalls and ponds where koi fish can be seen, and even fed! During the summer months, our guests, especially children, enjoy riding our half-scale train that is a replica of an 1871 Porter Locomotive. This train transports many smiling faces through tunnels and around our courtyards, ponds, and waterfalls. Just steps away is Pea Soup Andersen's, a satisfying haven for the hungry traveler and where all hotel guests age 12 and under eat free. Choose from a wide variety of special menu items from great-tasting kids' meals to succulent steaks and mouth-watering desserts that will tantalize your tastebuds. After dinner, guests may relax in the Blue Tooth Lounge and choose from a variety of cocktails, beers, and fine wines. Some of our bolder guests even participate in weekly karaoke contests on Wednesday evenings. We also offer banquet and conference facilites for up to 400, elegant patio dining, and an in-house bakery to suit your sweet tooth. And none of our guests like to depart without first purchasing a souvenir from the gift shop. Our gift shop is stocked with a huge selection of cards, candles, and other collectibles to catch your eye.
