On a recent road trip we stayed at the Jamestown Railtown Motel. It was a nice motel for a traveler. The room and grounds was nice and clean. There is a pool. There is not a coffee maker in the room but you can walk down to the office and get a cup of coffee. The room rate was reasonable... More

What a rip off. We were charges $110 for a room that was not worth $50. Their Web site advertises $65. But the tourist info lady called for us and they stuck us. We should have backed out when the woman showed us the room and said don't run air on high it works best on low. Well it didnt.... More

Stayed in Jamestown to allow us to get a camp pitch early in Yosemite the next day. One of the cheaper options in delightful Jamestown. Lacks the character of some of the older hotels but the room was large & clean with a jacuzzi in the corner. Small but welcome outdoor pool. Easy walk to the Main Street of this... More

Good times, peaceful, good food. Shopping, black oak fun, the scenery was. Awesome wish it never ended. Now we're looking to move here, the people are great and feels so good t be away from the crowd. Family fun for the whole family it's literally close to all the great sites and things to do.

As we pulled up to the hotel, I thought "oh my god, what a dump!" As we checked in, we were given keys to the room, yes I said KEYS. The doors had outdated residential door locks to the rooms, and they were very finicky! Those locks did not work well at all. Once in the room, we had a... More

As others have said, it's an older motel, carpet is showing it's age, and the mattress were iffy, but it was clean, and located within walking distance of main street. Has a fridge & microwave & pool. Price was high for what we got, but less than other hotels in the area. Would probably stay here again if I could... More

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was ok but not the cleanest [ hair everywhere in the bathroom and half eaten burger in fridge]. Pool was available and our kids used it. We chose the hotel as we thought it is close to Yosemite Park, but it is a fair drive (2h) away. We probably wouldn't come back.
