i have stayed in historical places before and was a little nervous about staying here, but I was so wrong. This place is wonderful! Staff is super friendly and helpful. We stayed in a regular king room, but had a balcony that looked out over Main Street. Heated bathroom floors were a nice surprise, since we stayed when it was... More

We recently had an occasion to stay at the "National Hotel" with our Roadster Group. The remodel on this historic landmark is well done, however some of the rooms are quite small. The owners did a great job in re doing the rooms, using period furniture, pretty bedding, beautiful bathroom, with shower only, all new fixtures and marble like tile.... More

We stayed at the National Hotel for 2 nights. It is a historic gem in the gold country of California. It has been fully restored to it's original beauty by a new owner that put over 4 million in renovations into the property. The rooms are comfortable and the baths have modern plumbing with heated tile floors and a large... More

The hotel is just as everyone has described. The owners have done a great job remodeling the old hotel incorporating modern touches like a/c, comfortable beds and linens while still keeping the integrity and aura of a great old hotel. Our room was tastefully decorated and very clean. We also had a fresh flower arrangement in our room. When was... More

I love to stay at non-chain local hotels, so I thought I'd give the National Hotel a try. They've done a fantastic job with the remodel. I have no idea what it looked like before, but it's very clean and made to look old. Maybe the furniture is new, maybe they are antiques, but it was clean! The room was... More

This hotel is the real McCoy as the original oil painting hanging in the lobby attests: the last stage coach to depart from in front of the hotel. The hotel is tastefully renovated, the antique furniture in the guestrooms is real. Down comforters, a plethora of pillows, huge fluffy towels, terry robes, comfortable beds. Plus thermostatically controlled central air conditioning,... More

My husband and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary, so rode our motorcycle up along the Golden Chain, and decided to stop for the night in Jackson. We knew we had our choice of either a chain hotel, or something different. I'm SO glad we went for the something different!! Starting with the staff (especially Noah), everyone was helpful and...

There's a lot of history in this property and their new remodel has maintained an historic feel. Our room was not overly spacious. Everything was fresh, clean and well maintained. Some street noise (mostly motorcycles) in the early evening but quiet at night. Too pricey for what it is.
