Very disappointed with the restaurant. It took our party of 6 adults 45 minutes for our breakfast order to arrive. Not much of an apology and food was fair. Cool looking outdoor space but not worth the wait.

great break, off the beaten path, on a long drive down route 49.It sits in the center of a tiny but charming little gold rush mining town. I expected Fes Parker to walk off the front steps. Now I know why Hollywood loved westerns. California was just full of all this history right at their fingertips.

Our room was in the rooms off of the patio. They were fine for our over nighter. The Building and grounds are really cool. Friends had a room in the old building on the street with a balcony you could climb out onto...

After doing a bit of research, I've learned that everything about this hotel/bar is haunted. IT'S FREAKING AWESOME!! The room was quaint and historic, obviously. I would come back here just to have a beer and enjoy the ambiance of place. I highly recommend this place, if you are into history at all! ENJOY!

During a recent family reunion, we were on our own for breakfast and found the hotel. We enjoyed our breakfast outside. The food was good. The staff was accommodating and helped cousins join us so we could visit. A delightful place to enjoy a meal!

The rooms in this historic hotel are lovingly restored. As expected, rooms are smaller but comfortable, with large windows. Shared bathrooms/shower rooms have been very clean and never crowded (although one historic room has it's own bathroom). We truly love this place. As a spectral skeptic, I thought the ghost stories were just historic hype, but on our stay last... More

After watching Hotel Hell with Gordon Ramsey we were hoping for the best. Our group had lunch on the patio and it was a lovely setting. The staff was really attentive but it took a while for the food to come out. The food was good quality at a reasonable price. We looked through the hotel and bar and sadly,... More

Stopped in for lunch, a beer and to watch the soccer finals. The bartender was great, food was good. We were glad that we had the game to watch because the food took a little too long to arrive at our table.

The Hotel bar is cozy and Old West in flavor. With quite a selection of beers and a large selection of hard Liquors. Of course if you want one just walk up and down Main Street which is littered with wine tasting establishments.

This hotel was average at best. The rooms were not in the historic portion, but in an addition. The room was facing a large grassy area, which had been rented out for a wedding. Needles to say, the crowd became a bunch of drunken fools, fighting and screaming. The staff was rude and unprofessional from the first encounter. The only... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Murphys Historic Hotel is the longest continually operated hotel in California. The Hotel was built in 1856 and we try to keep our nine historic rooms as close to that time period as possible. If you are to stay within the Historic Hotel you are without T.V., Phone, A/C, and of course a bathroom... but how often do you get to share a shower down the hall? You may bump into a ghost while enjoying a little piece of history. We also have twenty modern hotel rooms that have been improved more recently with new T.V.'s, Beds, A/C's, and Windows. We do have plans to remodel all bathrooms but Rome wasn't built in a day. We also have a full service restaurant which is open for breakfast, lunch, & dinner 365 days a year along with a full service saloon. The Murphys Historic Hotel is also within walking distance to over 20 different wine tasting rooms and our community park. While you are here please let me know how we are doing. We hope to see you soon!Sincerely, Brian ... more   less
