TINY TOWN THAT WAS DELIGHTFUL! We spent 2 nights in Amador City in room 9 of the garden cottage, an annex of the Imperial Hotel B & B. The suite was clean and comfortable with a small refrigerator. It was pleasant having the privacy of our own little porch. There was no wifi in the cottage, so we took our... More

We just returned from staying here for a week. We enjoyed the uniqueness of the setting and the private parking lot (which got so full at night for the restaurant that we couldn't find parking). They advertise as a B&B since they include breakfast, but it's more of a hotel instead. Since the bottom is a restaurant and bar and... More

Imperial hotel is small but charming with loads of history, definitely worth a detour to stay the night or two. We were welcomed by Peter, checking us in and telling us all about the fantastic history of the hotel and Amador City. We stayed in a room with brick walls, high ceiling and direct access to the front balcony. There... More

One should expect some old stuff when sleeping with history: creaky floor boards, red brick walls, doors with gaps. Obvious renovations include showers, fixtures, lighting, ceiling fans and AC. The bed was comfy and the windows opened for night air on a warm summer night. Not really on highway 49, just the back road (old 49) from the much busier... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Imperial Hotel with our 18-month-old son while visiting family in the area. It wasn't a place I would have ever sought out on my own, coming from Ohio, but I'm glad we stumbled across it. The property -- and town, really -- was absolutely beautiful. I loved the super tall ceilings and... More

Spent four days in April at the Imperial. Had an excellant time. The hotel has the feeling of a small English hotel with excellent food, evening entertainment and an intimate bar area where the hotel residents and the locals mingle. Great wine country plus gold country history. A great get away and looking forward to a return visit.

We recently visited Amador City, and had dinner at the Imperial Hotel. The dining area itself is quite nice, but the food was just so-so. I have a new york steak which was actually quite good .. however, my wife had the shrimp which was quite tasteless other than the chili pepper used to attempt to spice it up. I... More

We always appreciate feedback from our customers, so I want to thank this reviewer for his comments. Though I am glad that the New York steak was enjoyable, I do regret that the shrimp was not. I have passed these comments on to the chef for his consideration. We do instruct our serving staff to offer a substitute menu item... More

As my husband just said, 'I couldn't have wanted anything more from a hotel'! This might seem odd for a hotel which isn't all 'mod cons', but we absolutely loved it here and can't wait to return. We were welcomed by Pete, who was absolutely lovely and efficient (winning combination!). I was longing for a cup of tea on arrival,... More

Our first stay in Amador City was at the Imperial Hotel. Historic charm is everywhere and accentuated with appropriate modern conveniences. Our upstairs guest room bed was very comfortable and the pillows were too. I like a medium to full feather pillow at home and judge a hotel by how good the bed and pillows are. The linens are higher... More

I had not been to Amador City for over 25 years, so I was quite surprised when we rolled into town. I do not remember much of anything being open then, but now it was a little village all shined up for the weekend guests. We had booked a room in advance at the Imperial Hotel, a substantial brick building... More
