A unique hotel experience. The uncomfortable antique sofa in our room made for fun conversation about the olden days. The bed was very comfortable, though. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. The facility was very clean. Free parking in the city garage right behind the hotel. A GREAT breakfast. The restaurant is closed being remodeled. We lived two blocks from there in the 70's. Back then on Saturday night, the bar would empty and the people would march up and down the halls singing and shouting. They say that doesn't happen any more.
Hotel was very historic. Beautifully decorated. Nice rooms. Small but quaint. Very nice staff. Wonderful breakfast, staff in dining room was also very welcoming. The chef cooking the hot foods ( bacon waffles and omelets) did an amazing job.
From the time we arrived, we was met with excellent service. One of the workers was outside, he greeted us and took our bag and took it up the front stairs and placed it by the front door. Next was greeted by Linda, the night clerk. Linda was very helpful and greeted us very well. Next morning we met Dusty, the clerk who was also very helpful. The Chef in the dining room was absolutely helpful and made my eggs. The Chef makes eggs to order and omelettes per the customers request. The Chef made a special cake that day which was scrumptious. On the final day we met the Proprieter, Mr. Stanley. He was very friendly and shared his story. Overall the entire staff made you feel welcome along with the warm ambience of the hotel. We shall return.
If I could have given 3.5 stars, I would have, since it is better than average. But ya gotta be careful with room sizes here. Lobby is beautiful, and service is good. Also, it looks like some rooms here are downright gorgeous. But we stayed in a "Queen Regular Room", and the Queen was more like a full size bed. Not much room to get around the bed, and it really was not a room that you can do more than sleep in. Sufficient, but not great. Cool to be in the downtown area, but while the area has lots of stuff to do during the day, walking around at night will not really get you anywhere around here, other than for a pretty good dive bar. In sum, a nice spot to stay in, but be sure to stay in an upgraded room here.
Nicely remodeled and reasonably priced, the National Hotel, constructed in 1862 drips of Gold Country history. Yes, perhaps the walls are a bit thin and some of the Americana and art are a bit garish, but the National Hotel made me smile. A great value for you visit to Jackson. Hint: to check in, down the narrow drive way to the right of the hotel facade and park in the lower area adjacent to the door. Go in the side door and take the elevator (to the right) or the stairs thought the bar (to the left) and go up to the lobby to check in. You will be given a pass to park in the public parking lot to the rear of the hotel. Drive back up the ramp and make a right, another right on the other side of the hotel and a right into the parking structure. There is a bridge across a small creek to take you back to the hotel side door.…
