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

The Holbrooke Hotel can now be marked off the bucket list. As a paranormal researcher by hobby and a photographer as a passion, I just had to visit and stay at this historical sitel. The staff was kind, and had plenty of stories about things that rattled in the middle of the night. I choose to stay in one of... More

We chose the Holbrooke Hotel as our base of operations for a day of wine tasting and dining, followed by an evening visit to Nevada City. The hotel was charming and our room was neat and clean. The temperature in our room was quite high but was quickly corrected by the front desk. I got the impression that all room... More

We stayed here Saturday, November 9th. The Place is full of old history and the woman at the front desk was really friendly and informative. We had a pet room which was nice and clean. (They charge at non refundable $50. pet fee, which is a bit high) We loved the fact that this place is located in the historic... More

My wife and I were in Grass Valley for a Buddy Guy blues concert. We were framilar with the Holbrooke Hotel and the convenience of its location. Additionally, the fact that it's loaded with historical significance made the selection easy. Another favorable factor is the convenient hotel parking to the rear. Parking in downtown Grass Valley,especially during an event, is... More

We thought it would be a fun adventure to stay in the historic Holbrooke Hotel while visiting family. Wrong decision as $129/night plus taxes offered little. Linens were never freshened; room not vacuumed; water glasses not replaced. Room overlooked parking lot so it was noisy, especially on trash pick up day. Continental breakfast - one pot of coffee and one... More

Free parking in back. Price was $109 during the week. Stayed in their little BB off the main hotel. Only place like this we could find with... More

We stayed here for a friends pre-wedding party, fun active bar area with live music. Our room was not bad, could use some updates. Other friends had really big rooms with outdoor balconies. The restaurant wasn't bad for dinner, service was really slow. Not long ago the show "Hotel Impossible" went in to help this failing hotel. Seems the owner... More

OK hotel but needs a bit of re-decorating. As restaurant was empty we did not try it, continental breakfast was a bit light on variety (no cold meats). The bar was a great place to visit as it is the oldest continuous bar west of the Mississippi also with good local beers. This is a old building well worth staying... More
