We spent the night in the 'haunted' Cary House Hotel in Placerville, Ca. The room we had was great - with two seperate sleeping areas and a kitchenette. My bed was great but my partner stated his bed was not very comfortable. The hotel creaks but we did not see any paranormal activity. However, the bar across the street was... More

On Monday morning I went to the front desk to ask a question and was told to tone it down as I was too peppy for a Monday morning. Things went down hill from there. The breakfast room was never neat. There was sugar, cereal and drinks spilled on the tables and serving area. They ran out of cups and... More

We take all of our reviews very seriously here at the Historic Cary House Hotel, as we did yours. Let me start by saying we're very proud of the review scores our guests have given us - especially for customer service. With that said, unlike so many others, you obviously didn't enjoy your stay and we're sorry about that. It... More

I felt like we stepped back in time (in a good way) when we walked into the lobby to check in. It was nicely decorated and had music playing in the background. The man at the desk was very friendly. Our room was on the small side, but it was the perfect size for our one night stay. The bed... More

What could be better than a 150-year old historic hotel located in the heart of historic Placerville? Close to shopping, events and restaurants and a great getaway for couples or friends. The rooms are a bit outdated, but immaculately clean and very comfortable. Our 4th floor room was close to Main Street, which was close to Liar's Bench, the local... More

The Return! A new years eve visit to one of my favorite historical hotels. The second time around, was as interesting as the first. As a paranormal investigator, I find the Cary House to be very interesting place to conduct evp’s. The staff is fun and kind. If your ever around the area, you’ll have to try a stay in... More

Our third time staying at the Cary House. It is a great location, right in the heart of historic Placerville for shopping and dining. The rooms are somewhat dated, but clean and comfortable bed for us...and quiet. We will stay again next time we go to Placerville.

We had the opportunity to stay at the Cary House for three nights. The staff were wonderful to us and made us feel quite welcome.The location is within walking distance to several places to eat. Just take note there is no where open in the downtown to eat at 10:00pm. The first night we had a Superior Suite for four... More

We had planned a two-night stay at South Lake Tahoe, but the first major storm of the season blew in a day early, so we fled the mountains for lower elevations. We really like Placerville, so after a late lunch we decided to seek lodging in town. We had walked past the Historic Cary House Hotel on previous visits so... More

We often visit friends in the area. You know, two nights in a corporate, sterile room. This time we decided to try something real, something that has stood the test of time. We were not disappointed. Walking into the lobby we immediately felt warm and welcome. The great artifacts and beautiful stained glass are just part of the attraction. This... More

I love the location of the Cary House Hotel. It is right on Main Street and when you walk out the door you are in the heart of Placerville. The front desk staff were very helpful. Aside from location and staff - I felt the hotel was a real let down. We stayed in a king bed, junior suite. The... More
