Upon arriving, we had learned the hotel had just finished shooting for an upcoming episode of Hotel Impossible! Talk about good timing. Production ended that morning and 6 am with brand new renovations and a makeover. We checked in at 4 pm. Since, this was our first visit to Mokelumne Hill, we weren't sure what to expect, and had any prior knowledge of what the hotel looked like before. We grabbed a beer from the bar and headed up to hotel #11 part of the "The McCartney Suite" that is supposedly haunted by Grandma Kate. I was pleased to find out that we had our own private bath, and access to the outdoor balcony. Later we swam in the pool, checked out the former jail cell in the basement (which is now used for dining. very gothic and beautiful), and dined at the hotel's restaurant. The food was amazing. I'm not sure if Hotel Impossible had influenced their menu items, or this was normal fare, but I was delighted by the taste, quality and freshness of the ingredients. I ordered the salmon, which was cooked to perfection, the mashed potatoes were delicious, and the veggies were fresh. My daughter ordered the fettuccine Alfredo primavera, and she loved it. I had also tried a few bites, to taste, and I must say the homemade sauce was awesomely creamy and very tasty.

After dinner, we enjoyed some live music at the bar, and decided to see if we could summon any of the hotel spirits for a visit, unfortunately, we did not experience anything otherworldly.

We will definitely stay again. If you enjoy a nice peaceful relaxing stay without any modern amenities (television), a friendly environment, and beautiful town, I recommend that you stay here!

Room Tip: When booking a room, make sure you ask if the room has a private or shared bath.

The place has great character and the furniture is beautiful but we definitely had some issues! Reserved room online but when we checked in the general manager had no idea who I was and said there have been problems with their system but then after awhile she found my reservation. We weren't told there was a code on the front door to get in after hours- thankfully we came back while another door was still open.There is only on-street parking available which was limited in the afternoon. The restaurant had pretty good food but the room was a little stuffy and outdoor seating was limited. The bartender in the daytime was not very friendly or attentive. No ice bucket or cups for water in the room, no breakfast available just coffee & cookies, no place to put personal items in the bathroom- and finally the full size bed was too short for a 5'11 person. For the money it was not a good value.

We did not stay at the hotel but ate there for dinner. Ate on the balcony overlooking the creek and had great service. They need more vegetarian options on the menu since at the moment it is very limited. However, the grizzly beer was great! Price for dinner was very fair and the service was excellent.

My wife, myself and our grandson spend one night there, and that was plenty as the room had no AC, fan or place to hang up clothes.
Staff was helpful and friendly and the most enjoyable thing was sitting by the pool in the evening.
The food was excellent in the restaurant.

Room Tip: Come at sometime other than Juily unless you can do without AC while sleeping.

we've stopped by several times - a light dinner before live music, hanging out and watching the Giants game, a nice dinner with friends, etc ..... and we've never been disappointed.

I think the food prices are pretty fair for the quality - we ate early one night to make sure we got the prime rib (<20 !) after some wine tasting. The staff graciously allowed us to have an excellent Barbera from Irish Winery, opening it for us for only a small corkage fee. One of the best dinners we've ever had ! (or was it the wine speaking ?!)

Sandwiches are also tasty as are the sides; the owners and staff are very customer focused .... during last year's MLB playoffs, they allowed people to eat dinner in the bar in front of the TV !

There is a good selection of beers on tap and local wines by the bottle (also available by the glass). Since the place is frequented by the locals, prices are kept reasonable and the quality kept high ...... because there are other choices in town.

It might be a bit hard to find from hiway 49, so look for the signs. Turn onto Main Street and you're in downtown Moke Hill ..... stop by Moke Hill nuts and Petroglyphe and the Exchange for a bit of local color ... take a walk around into history ........
