If you like historic buildings like we do, this is an attractive little hotel. It has no "luxury" amenities as advertised and the food is not "gourmet" as advertised, but it is OK and has great potential. We regularly stay in historic hotels, so we are used to some of the things that go with it such as lack of... More

We do appreciate feedback from our guests, and the feedback from this guest gives us much to think about. I have provided our housekeeping and maintenance staff with a copy of the review and asked them to inspect and devote some attention to the items detailed there regarding cleanliness and repairs. As for the noise issues raised, there is only... More

It's very hard to pick out the top place to stay in the beautiful gold country. They all have charm, bucolic settings, amazing staff and we,ve stayed and enjoyed many of them. But wow, The Imperial, I'm a fan and fear that with the exception of visiting exquisite Columbia it will always be The Imperial from now on. The rooms... More

Beautiful old time hotel which takes you back in time, but is cozy and comfortable with the modern conveniences you need. We especially enjoyed sitting out on the upper balcony with a glass of wine, just watching very little going by. Friendly staff, comfortable bed, quiet and peaceful surroundings, and excellent dinner in the restaurant downstairs. Didn't need anything else.

The Mother Lode Scots has had their Robert Burns Supper here in 2015 & 2016, couldn't have asked for better service and excellent food. To top it off, the perfect ambiance for the occasion. The Mother Lode Highland Games had need of several rooms Again, the service was wonderful, everyone raved about the meals.

We stayed in the annex, garden suites. No one to check us in, but the key was next to the bar, front entrance. Room was fine. Gas stove and whirlpool bath were a nice touch. Note that Amador city is only open for business Thursday through Sunday. The only thing open was the hotel. We ate and shopped in Sutter... More

There really is hardly anything to this tiny place but Amador City is so charming. The one hotel was in the middle of refurbishment but that didn't stop them taking guests into their delightful cottage across the street. Staff were lovely and they brought our breakfast over on a tray the next day. They advised on eating out in Sutter... More

Stopped in for a dinner for two and a bottle of wine. We were blown away by how good everything was. Service was friendly. The food was abundant, fresh and very good. In the past 20 years the dining has gone up and down, but the current ownership and chef combination is a winning combination. If you haven't been in... More

We spent two nights at the Imperial Hotel as we explored the gold country and its many wineries. The hotel is authentically and tastefully furnished with period antiques and our room was charming, clean and comfortable. The Happy Hour on Wed night features free appetizers and wonderful music and it appeared that all the locals come out for a good... More

Amador City is a very quiet town and so is the Imperial Hotel. No noise even sleeping on the Main Street, the most noise you will hear are the creaking old floor boards. The rooms are antiqued without phones or tv (OK for us). Wifi worked just fine for those that crave such connections. There is a lovely 3 mile... More

Historic old town of the gold rush era. The main town is only one block wide and one block long, but full of historic buildings, antic stores of clothes and relics, as well as restaurants or bakery stores. Hotel has rooms for around $100 per night with its own restaurant. A "yard" with metal trellises of various types and a... More
