The hotel was dated, but I think all of them are in Jamestown. The room was comfortable and clean. The bed was nice and the staff (owners) were polite and nice. It is exactly what you would expect in Jamestown. I would stay again.

Well, it isn't a 5 star, BUT I give it an excellent rating because you certainly receive your money's worth. It's inexpensive, clean, rooms are large, our room had a big hot tub, and the proximity is good; right next door to a great little restaurant and pub, and right in the center of the old town block. We had... More

Jamestown as a whole was quite a discovery for us and we were very pleased by the Railtown Motel. It is a block off the main road and therefore very quiet. But it is still very close to all the restaurants and bars that make the nightlife of this little town, mostly probably for tourists. The check in was quick... More

Fairly clean, need a new bedspread it was stained which leaves you feeling kinda yucky but we always pull off the bedspread anyway. This was the closest we could get to Yosemite where we were headed the next day, so had to take it. The staff was very nice and helpful, but the TV was messed up the whole time.

The rooms in this motel are spacious and clean enough rather than very clean. The TV , air con and furniture is on the older side. They have a better than average pool and fast and free WiFi. Check-in is friendly and restaurants are in short walking distance. If you like the charm of a little dated motel for $80... More

When we made our last Columbia trip, we stayed at the Railtown Motel for $65. a night, so I should have known what I was getting. The room was fairly run down, older than I could have imagined, and our room had a huge hot tub in it, close to the bed, which we couldn't use unless we paid more... More

What was I thinking when I booked this motel? In hindsight I should have read the Trip Advisor reviews, of course! We hae stayed in about 17 motels in 19 days and this one is well down the bottom of the list. Where do I start? Oh yes, check in. Even though my CashPassport Mastercard was accepted when I did...

We stayed there in late November for two nights in a California round trip to visit Jamestown railway museum and Columbia national park and make a rest to continue our way to San Francisco. It is a small motel with about 10 rooms. half of them in first and half in second floor. We have booked the room in advance... More

We booked with Expieda and had to change our booking, having phoned the hotel to change things, bearing in mind it had to bounce back to the UK on the mobile, I was kept hanging on, eventually after being held on hold I asked Jose to sort it out and amend our booking. When we arrived it wasn't sorted, but... More
