Great hotel--very friendly people, comfy beds with giant headboards, beautiful antiques, quiet. (And we were told the place is haunted by a nice lady ghost.) Really cool to plunge yourself into the Old West Gold Rush experience. Staff gave us the code & demo on how to unlock front entrance to let ourselves back in at night--when we had the town nearly to ourselves! It was great to be in the center of town, walk to everything, no car traffic. Next day--gold panning, visit authentic displays of 1850s life, stage coach ride, old-time family portrait, and Sarsaparilla. (Yum) Our room did have air conditioning (control panel only allows down to 70), and does have WIFI! Plus robes, and disposible slippers. We had a bathroom, but showers down the hall--two seperate, locking rooms. We enjoyed our visit!
