This hotel has a unique history. This is my third stay and have not had any ghost encounters. Rooms are on the smaller size, but this time we stayed in a larger king room. Bathroom tub/shower combinations are hard to get in and out of and there is no place to put your bath products. Other than that the rooms... More

Caution. Called to book a room here and was told "there is no pet fee but there is a fully refundable pet deposit". I questioned this practice and it turns out the woman had been only working there for two weeks but assured me that if the pet policy was different, someone would call me the next day. No one...

I stayed here for a wedding, and this place was excellent. The building has tremendous history and staff are excellent and helpful. The bathrooms have old time sinks, toilets and fixtures. The bedroom I stayed in was the Harrison Room, named for president Benjamin Harrison. Other presidents were Grant, Garfield and Cleveland. Mark Twain also stayed there. There is a... More

I did not stay at this hotel, but visited one afternoon for a wedding. The hotel had this very intentional old mining vibe. The staff were kind. Try the house Merlot. Big parking lot but it also fills up quickly on the weekend. Only other drawback was I couldn't connect to the internet in the main room where the wedding... More

Located in downtown Grass Valley, the Holbrooke is conveniently located to shops and local restaurants. The evening manager, Teresa, was wonderfully accommodating--bringing up extra blankets and pillows and a space heater for my parents. The rooms are named for historical figures, some or all of whom stayed there. It is very quaint and very old. There is an old fashioned... More

A very spontaneous trip to Grass Valley over the Valentine/President's three day weekend found us looking for a place to stay. With the only option being the centrally located, downtown historical Holbrooke Hotel, we decided to give it a try, after discovering they were pet friendly. $50 pet fee deposit or free if your dog is a service dog.

We love historic places, but the Holbrooke Hotel was very disappointing. The building is in dire need of rennovation. At the very least, it deserves a thorough cleaning. better upkeep and more friendly, accommodating employees. Carpeting was wet in corner of the room, moldy smell and one small bath towel for 2 guests. Room was very warm and not too... More

Let me start out by saying that I love the Holbrooke! I am a local who recently stayed the night at the hotel for the first time. I have had nothing but positive experiences at the restaurant and bar. The building is historic and the decor reflects that. If you're looking for modern, mark this one off the list. The... More

A nice, modest hotel with the true feel of the gold rush era. Our room was just $109. Lobby area is a bit tired, could use serious cleaning. Our room was small but adequate, comfortable, clean, decorated true to the era. Our view was of a wall across the alley, but the room was quiet. Staff very friendly. Excellent wifi.... More

so, I was nervous when the front desk told me that the owner was holding his open mic night this evening and things sometimes got a little raucous, but it wasn't an issue. Rooms are not above the bar, and this in not Gordon Ramsey's Hotel Nightmares. A comfortable room with reasonable wi-fi [you have to search out the best... More
