Note, the hotel does not show you pictures of their rooms, wounder why? because they are rundown, and outdated. I had a resvervation in their annex building, which is an old delapidated victorian sitting in the parking lot. The front porch is dryrotted (I am suprised no one has fallen through) and all the paint is peeling. There is what appears to be 30 year old blue indoor/outdoor carpet throughout. The bathroom in our room was sinking due to dry rot. There were cobb webs, and the extra blanet was sitting on the closet floor. Mis matched old furniture, worn, torn window coverings. All this for $129.00 per night. We demanded our money back, and stayed elsewhere.

We only had one night here but were very impressed and pleased with our choice. We had the Presidential Suite which comfortably accommodated our family of four. The service was charming if a little hit and miss, which only seemed to add to the charm. The food in the restaurant was OK but a little uninspiring. The bar was fun and we really enjoyed the blues evening. Overal a pleasant stay.

This is a really nice hotel, with genuine history and a great bar, in a lovely town. We stayed in the Mark Twain room which had its own large balcony. The food in the restaurant was good but the real gem is the bar with it's eccentric locals and lively atmosphere. We were lucky enough to see Kelly Fleming playing some live music which was well worth it.

If you have kids or are mostly dead (i.e. if no noise is more important than letting other people have some fun) then you'd be better in a chain hotel. However, if you like good food and drinks, lively company and a historic and well kept hotel then book at the Holbrooke. (I already did for next year)

Stayed for 2 nights & glad we did. We had the Lola Montez and the Lotta Crabtree rooms. Both were spacious and nicely furnished. The rooms were spotlessly clean. Its a beautiful building and is well cared for. The location is great - right in the centre of Grass Valley and a good base for the Gold Country.
The cold buffet breakfast was lovely - a good variety of food in a lovely room. Good coffee.
Ate in the saloon one evening - great food. (Would also recommend Tofanelli's just up the street).
Free WiFi.
Great atmospheric hotel, friendly staff.
Would love to return some day & would definitely recommend. This hotel made our stay in Gold Country.
Really enjoyed Nevada City & especially Downieville.

Wife and I stayed (one night) at the Holbrooke in June 2008. Very nice property in very unique old town. To walk the town required some up and downhill treking. Street (auto) traffic was very heavy while we were there. Parking was generally difficult around town although the Holbrooke has a convenient parking lot around back. Our room was small but comfortable. Nicely appointed. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Onsite restaurant and bar. We ate in the bar and food was good and reasonably priced. Good visit & nice stay.
