The company I work for had our Christmas party at The National. Wow! They've done a wonderful job of renovating this hotel. Their restaurant was amazing too! Do yourself a favor and visit Jackson and stay at The National!

We stayed at The National Hotel on the second night of my birthday wine-tasting weekend. It was recommended by a co-worker of mine. The building is attractive, right at the end of the historic main street of town. As soon as you walk into the lobby, you can see the attention to detail in the recent remodel. The dark wood... More

My wife and I were attending a party at one of the local ranches for a charity event. We attended the party and got to the hotel around 10PM. We were really tired. We got to our quiet room, closed the blinds and didn't wake up for 10 hours. The bed was soo comfortable! The AC wasn't crazy loud. The... More

We took a leisurely drive on Highway 88 up to Jackson to stay at The National Hotel and experience some unique Amador County local wines. The old main street of town is filled with history and compliments the hotel for great walking and sightseeing. The hotel is modern and upgraded with taste and the sophistication that retains the antique feel... More

Really fun place to stay, recommended by friends. We went for a birthday weekend and to visit some of the offbeat wineries in nearby Plymouth. The hotel's history is interesting, the rooms are spotless and comfortable, and the town is entertaining. Great place to visit the gold country and sample the local wine. The staff, by the way, could not... More

An excellent restoration of a historic hotel. The room was dark but the furnishings were comfortable with antiques, spa quality linens and good service. Stephen was gracious and helpful when we checked in. Our only complaint was that the restaurant, bar and most of the shops in town were closed on Monday and Tuesday. Otherwise we would have rated it... More

This is a very nice spot to spend a historic weekend in the gold country. The steakhouse downstairs is pretty good as well, although, somewhat dated. The rooms are small, but very nice and very comfortable. Will stay there again.

After sorting out some miscommunication concerning our initial reservation, from check-in to departure the service was absolutely outstanding. Thank you, Stephen. We stayed in a suite on the second floor that was attached to the shared balcony. The view wasn't extraordinary, but we enjoyed watching people walking down main street while taking in the fresh, cool air. Although we didn't... More

My husband and I just returned from a two night stay at The National Hotel. It definitely exceeded my expectations. The rooms are small but they have everything one needs. We stayed in a king room which included a very comfortable bed with beautiful linens, a closet, dresser, chairs, tv and a lovely bathroom with marble floors (heated). My only... More

My wife and i stayed here one night on April 8. We had gotten a dealsaver coupon for 50% off, so thought we would take advantage of that for a weekday getaway. This place is terrific! The hotel itself is steeped in history and the massive remodeling and updating it went through a few years ago kept that history alive.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The National Hotel has just completed a four million dollar renovation and updating, while maintaining the grand dame's wild west, gold country roots. Rooms and public areas have many of their original fixtures (phones & lighting) and furniture. All rooms are luxury, many with jacuzzis, balconies, heated floors, fireplaces and so much more. Most of the 150 year old bar has been kept in tact and now is an elegant venue for meeting and imbibing, or while waiting for your table at our fine dinner house. ... more   less
