The Holbrooke has charm but could use a little refreshing (wall paper is peeling in the bathroom, plumbing hasn't been updated in the last century). The vintage of the hotel has it's appeal. The room was large and the bed comfortable. We were there for a very hot weekend and the air conditioning is more than adequate. Food in the... More

“Old West” hotel. The rooms are decorated in Old Victorian and it seems like you are stepping back in time to the "Gold Rush Area". I was able to stay in 4 different rooms over the 3 weeks that I visited Grass Valley. What really makes the hotel is the staff, Starting with the front desk is Ty and he... More

We recently spent three nights at the hotel for a family friend's wedding. The room was spacious and the king size bed was comfortable. The historical ambience was great. On the first night there was a street fair and farmer's market right outside the hotel. It was great energy and people watching. The front desk and housekeeping staff were all... More

Even as historic hotels go, the Holbrooke is pretty no-frills, with only the most basic amenities. That said, our rear-facing room was clean and comfortable, with an ample bed and a pleasant outdoor terrace for reading and taking in the sunset; there was no in-room air-conditioning control, but the desk staff was prompt in adjusting the temperature as needed. When... More

This Hotel does not reserve parking for hotel guests so you may have to walk a couple of blocks while carrying your luggage. The doors have been kicked in and wood puttied so many times that the slightest push will open the door even when dead bolted. Very noisy both from the street and other rooms. No temperature control so... More

Being raised in the area but having moved away I was interested in visiting since I had seen Hotel Impossible. We learned while we were there that there was a new owner. He was the chef. We had dinner and sat outside. Dinner was great and the service was almost as good. A little confusing to get seated, you have... More

We were initially excited about our stay at the Holbrooke since it was recently renovated by Hotel Impossible. At first glance, when we arrived, the hotel seemed quaint and cozy. Don't be fooled by fist impressions. Our room looked like it hadn't been cleaned. It had a funky smell to it. It's okay to look historic but it doesn't need... More

This hotel is charming and historic. The location is very good for local restaurants and nice historic walks around the town. The decor is charming and unique features like the claw foot tubs make one feel like they've gone back in time. One expects a few challenges in historic properties, so we were not too concerned when minor issues arose.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Holbrooke. The hotel is certainly quaint and maintained in period décor which was a nice change to modern renos. The room was small, but comfortable, and we weren't disturbed by "things that go bump in the night". (We found out later that the hotel is supposedly haunted.) The clawfoot tub was interesting to use.... More

A listed building, with all the quirkiness implied, the Holbrooke is a must stay for Gold Country. We arrived to a cold room (the heating had broken) but were immediately supplied with supplementary heaters which did a good job. The claw foot tub was delightful and getting the shower to run hot a challenge, but all part of the experience.... More
