I went here for a wedding in mid January and it was the most fun I have ever had!!! The rooms were clean and neat and the place is supposedly haunted which I may have drank a little too much to notice but someone flushed the toilet in my room and scared me right awake! My friends and I had... More

The rooms here are amazing, decorated in period time of the 1800's? I felt like we entered a time warp and time stood still. Extremely clean, beautiful decor, and the staff were sweet, kind and fun. They decorated my Bridal Suite, ( room 1), with rose petals leading to the bed, bouquets of roses everywhere, lace and rises on the... More

Where do I begin? It was a family trip to Columbia and it was a day where everyone was in period attire. The girls at check-in were extremely nice and very knowledgeable about the hotels history. We were walked to the hotel from the city hotel and were pleasantly surprised. This hotel is beautiful and you feel like you are... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We're always happy to receive feedback from our guest. We receive a lot of mixed comments on the spirits in our hotels. Some guest feel something and others sense nothing at all. It is hard not to think about ghost stories whenever you walk through an area so rich in... More

This is one of those few times my wife and I totally don't see eye to eye on a hotel experience (and this doesn't happen very often). As other people noted. this is a great "period" experience. The room is beautifully appointed with wall (and ceiling) paper; the tiny attached toilet was a chain pull toilet with copper piping. The... More

The hotel is quite authentic. Period furnishings, tall ceilings, old wallpaper and rugs, and old pictures. Be aware of a few things: The beds are small and rickety (lots of noise when you move around), the heat at the hotel was turned off when we were there. The staff told us that they turn it off for the season which... More

Our room in this old hotel was small, and there was nowhere to put your stuff. The double bed fitted into a corner and one of us had to clamber over the other to get out of bed. The light was rated at an authentic two candlepower so the room was gloomy and it was not really possible to read.... More

This is a lovely old hotel with charming rooms with air conditioning and WIFI, but shared showers down the hall. Be aware that there are NO TVs in the rooms. It is great fun to visit Columbia State Historic park and then stroll to your hotel. Take in a play/musical next door after eating dinner in the City Hotel down... More

We stayed here for one night, arriving early evening. At this time the visitors to Columbia had left and we had the town to ourselves. It was really good value for money to stay here a real treat to experience Columbia in the evening and early morning. However there are not very many options to eat out in the town... More

A group of us recently took a car tour to Columbia and stayed at the Fallon Hotel. The hotel was built in the 1800's and was restored by the state of California (as was a large portion of Columbia) as part of a State Park acquisition. The restoration was very well done. Although most of the rooms are quite small... More

Unfortunately we stayed only one night. The room with a balcony was great, the victorian detail in the lights beds and furnishings were great to set the mood for this great theme town. Downstairs one would expect Mark Twain to be reading a newspaper with a grumpy smile. The shared bathroom was unexpectedly pleasant, on with bathrobe and a good... More
