Truly a wonderful find. My wife and I stayed for 3 nites in room number 10. August 13, 14, and 15 , 2014. The room is very comfortable, large, everything you need, even an old brick fireplace. We had a nice fire 2 of the 3 nites. Very quaint " old timey " bar, very friendly, and the bartender CC... More

Top floor no elevator, however, you can pull your car around to the back to offload your luggage, and this will mean you won't have to carry your luggage up the stairs if this is a problem for you, as there is a road behind the hotel that follows the slope of the property. Large room with enough space for... More

We recently moved to Nevada and have been exploring different parts of the state. We fell upon this "gem" by accident. From the moment we walked in the doors we immediately we fell in love with this hotel and staff. Our stay was a one-of-a-kind experience. The originality of this hotel can't be found anywhere else. The rooms are charming,... More

This is not a well maintained hotel. The rooms are not well kept nor are the grounds. It must have been charming at several times during its long history, when we stayed, it was not being tended to. We did eat in the dining room and it was o.k., although the recipe for the Italian food choices had been altered... More

This hotel is one of the oldest in Virginia City, NV. The front wall is original, the rest added over time. The hotel is rumored to be haunted. Our group of ten motorcyclists had reservations. The rooms in the main hotel are not huge, but are comfortable. The hotel is on a hill on the outskirts of town. Two of... More

We only stayed one night, passing through on our way to northern Nevada, and wish we would have stayed longer. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The staff at check in, in the bar, and in the restaurant made us feel welcome and valued. Dinner was amazing.

Stayed here for 2 nights with a group of 13 back in April. We had the miners cabin, the brewery cabin and a few rooms in the main hotel. Our stay was amazing and a highlight of our USA trip. Dinner was great, the rooms were perfect and had a great western feel to them. The cabins were creepy but... More

We stayed in the original part of the hotel, which is the oldest. The rooms are quite small, but we had everything we needed, and the rooms were nice and spotlessly clean. I was concerned because there was no A/C, and the room got a little stuffy during the day, but with the window fan bringing in the cool mountain... More

Last weekend we stayed at the Gold Hill Hotel. From the minute we checked in with Missy at the front desk, we felt welcome. We asked her to show us around, and she was more than happy to do so. The room we stayed in, room 11 was very nice. Beds were comfortable and my kids enjoyed walking round the... More

We stayed 2 nights in room 4, Rosie's room. The room was everything we hoped for. It had historic charm and a great tub for soaking after sightseeing in Virginia City. Definitely not a cookie cutter type room. We enjoyed the ambience of the bar, and the bartender didn't mind taking our picture at the perfect spot to capture it.... More
