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

I very much enjoyed my recent stay at the Imperial Hotel in Amador City. This historical inn, around 130 years old is quaint and wonderful. The staff is incredibly accommodating. Enjoyed the historical bar, lovely dining area, patio and balcony. I also enjoyed taking in the beautiful mountain scenery of Amador City. The shops in this "smallest town in California"... More

If you can get away mid week do not miss a fun overnight here where for $150 during January and possibly beyond one can get room, breakfast AND dinner for two. Rooms of this former brothel and hotel are comfy, food is reasonable (beware minced garlic on absolutely everything -- just ask and they will go light) and bar is... More

Love this little B&B in Amador. Near lots of great history and amazing wineries all within 20 minutes any direction. If you're not quite tired after dinner, pop into their bar to make new friends or have a night cap. The rooms are decorated in period decor with modern amenities. The restaurant is wonderful and does regular wine pairing dinners... More

My wife and I recently retraced our honeymoon for our 30th anniversary and stayed at the Imperial Hotel for 1 night. It turned out to be one of the most enjoyable stays of our trip - the manager, the waitress for our evening meal, and the waitress for our morning breakfast all went out of their way to make us...

Quaint and clean. But they didn't tell me that the street was torn up and it looked terrible outside. Room was clean, but very small. My mother in law stayed with us and the sink is not in the bathroom, but at the foot of the bed. I had to leave room to allow privacy and space for them to... More

I am sorry for the disruption the bridge replacement project is causing out in front of our little hotel. It has been in the planning stages for years, but the exact timing of the work has been difficult to predict, as the start date was delayed for years, then months, then weeks. Now that it is definitely underway, we have... More
