We stayed in one of the cottages which was a perfect accommodation while visiting this historic town. The cottage was simple but immaculate and it included everything necessary for our two day visit. The staff was very courteous and most helpful. We highly recommend this special little place.

We visited Columbia again and found the 2 bedroom cottage was was clean and had a well equipped kitchen, as when we visited in 2014. It is located 1/2 block from historic Columbia's main street, so very convenient. The town doesn't take long to see but it's nice to just walk down the street to see it. The bedrooms are... More

If you are interested in the history of the California Gold Rush, Columbia State Historic Park is one of the key attractions in the area. Although I had been there quite a few times in the past I had never stayed there, preferring to make day trips. The town does have two operating hotels in the town: The City Hotel... More

We loved this place! Built in the mid 19th century, in the middle of a preserved historic town, we were pleasantly surprised at how well the place is kept up. The hotel is furnished in period Victorian style. The staff dress accordingly. They are very friendly and helpful. We stayed during a heat wave and the retro-fitted air conditioning in... More

Our stay at the City Hotel was short--just one night--but it was a comfortable stay. The room, numero dos, was NOT haunted (at least we didn't experience anything) and was very nice. The bed was a little creaky, but my husband and I slept on the double-size bed just fine. It was very hot when we arrived, but the AC... More

This recreation of Gold Rush California is so cool! The hotel, with its high- very high - ceilings, and its old-fashioned balcony overlooking the old west town, feels like a step into a time capsule. There's a beautiful lounge in the area to which the rooms all open, with old-time chairs and couches, tables and coffee in the morning. The... More

We visited Columbia to enrich our daughter's 4th grade study of the California Gold Rush. We opted to drive up on a Friday to stay over rather than "Day Trip" it and we're glad we did - staying at the City Hotel overnight, and waking up in an authentic 1850s town - BEFORE all the tourists arrived, was really amazing....
