I stayed at this hotel in 2006 when they were having problems with food service at breakfast. They have really gotten their act together since then! We really enjoyed our breakfasts each of the 3 mornings were were there this week. Twice breakfast was served in our room and once we ate in the hotel's lovely garden. The food was great and plentiful.
One of the highlights of my summer was sitting on the front porch of the hotel sipping wine and watching the Shasta Dinner Train leave the station across the street (we had just returned from an excursion ride on the train). You know a vacation has been a success when you get that wonderful "Life is Good" feeling.
The rooms were tastefully furnished with antiques but had modern amenities such as air conditioning and great plumbing. The staff was friendly and shared great stories about the area. We found a lot to do in the area and we were surprised at how uncrowded it was compared to Yosemite. The sky was clear and unsmokey. The water at the nearby lakes was clear and cool. I think we will skip Yosemite again next year and come here again! We are already picking the room we want and deciding what we want to do.
Another reviewer mentioned a lot of noise. We stayed in two different rooms and never noticed ANY noise, not even plumbing noise (which always seems to transfer between walls). We didn't notice any noise in 2006 either so perhaps it was an isolated incident.
