4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2015

The rooms are furnished and decorated like the latter 1800's when this place was built. The bar is funky and full of life. The old dining room where they now hold special functions is a beautiful example of Gold Rush buildings. The food is good and so is the service. Outdoor dining when available is terrific

I was there last night. The Suite above the Saloon is fantastic, Sizeable & spotless, with all you'd expect of a Hotel with this much recorded history! Outside the Suite a large semi-private balcony looks over the Main Street where you could just picture the likes of Mark Twain or the President sitting next to you enjoying whatever Parade or...

We planned this trip to stay at a nostalgic hotel. It was horrible? Dripping toilet and shower. Lumpy duvet. Bad pillows. Barely passable bed. But the worst is the NOISE! There seems to be no escaping the horrific live music downstairs. And in the street. If you are coming to relax, don't bother.

I have stayed here several times in 2014. It's one of those places where nothing is exceptional but the sum of the parts make it exceptional. The combination of the old fashioned hotel and rooms, the great "magical" bar with live entertainment almost every night, the tradional but solid restaurant, and the overall friendliness and knowledge of the staff makes...

We stayed here January 3rd for one night. I made a reservation 4 days prior. When we checked in we were told we got the last room and it was located above the kitchen and that the kitchen fan would not be turned off until 11:00 PM. Need I say more? It was just what you would expect given the... More

We stayed here 2 nights so we can visit this city and Nevada City for the "Christmas" experience. The hotel has loads of potential, unfortunately it is in sad shape and in need of major renovations and maintenance. Upon arrival you are met with a view of missing exterior plaster, cracked banisters, and a variety of missing simple fixes such... More

This place is historic and therefore quirky hence the charm. Rooms were clean enough, the bed was fine and the bathroom worked. The TV was historic but there was a picture. The whole place needed a face-lift but again that was part of the charm. I was woken in the middle of the night by what sounded like someone being... More

Who doesn't like to stay in an historic hotel in a town full of history? It was as expected, being historic and all, but badly in need of a few simple upgrades and service. The room was roomy and the sheets and bedding were clean. However the put shades were broken, (too short for one window, and dirty). The TV... More

This could have been a charming experience, but it was quite disappointing. To be fair, there are some positives to the place, but it wasn't enough to offset a bad stay. My wife and I stayed here as we had a wedding in town. We thought we'd splurge and get a suite. Unfortunately, it was dirty. As in the sheets-had-stains-on-them... More
