“Enjoyed our stay - especially playing ping pong!”
Reviewed July 3, 2010

We stayed 2 nights in a kitchen unit, which is like a small apartment with a living/dining room area, a separate kitchen & a bedroom. The decor reminded me of a 1950s cabin - dated but functional - it reminded me of cabins we stayed at when I was a kid. The unit was very clean but it is an older place so everything is not perfect. It was close to the road (with a view of the Sierra Buttes from the porch) but there was very little traffic so road noise was not a problem at all & the bedroom was in back away from the road.

Storage space was also like that of a small apartment - the bedroom had a closet with 2 sliding doors, the bathroom had a medicine cabinet & a cabinet below the sink. There were older TVs in both the living room & bedroom but there were very few channels & when watching ESPN, the sport scores that scroll across the bottom of the screen weren't visible. The kitchen had a full size refrigerator & stove but no dishwasher or garbage disposal. There were enough dishes for the 2 of us but it would have been nice if they had wine glasses. One thing that had been updated was the heat lamp in the bathroom - it had 3 lights & quickly made the bathroom nice & warm. The bed & shower were ok. I didn't like the pillows - I was glad that I'd brought my own pillow. There was a wood burning stove that we did not use.

We ate dinner once in the onsite restaurant. One of the most popular items on the menu is fresh trout which comes from the trout pond in front of the hotel. My companion was pleased with the trout dinner; I didn't care for my shrimp scampi. Simpler items are probably a better choice.

Across the street from the hotel is a large meadow area that is owned by the hotel. We didn't walk over there but there is at least one picnic table & horseshoes. The restaurant/lobby building has a downstairs game room with a ping pong table & a pool table. You can fish in the trout pond (the cost depends on the size of the fish that are caught) or feed the fish with food available for 25 cents. There is a computer that guests in the lobby that guests can use. The hotel is about ½ mile from the main part of Sierra City but the road gets very narrow in a couple of places so we didn't walk into town.

My wife and 6 year old daughter just got back from staying 4 nights at Herrington's I can't express enough what a wonderful and relaxing time we had. We got the full suite with a kitchen and all the amenities. The place was clean and quiet. We were by the road and NEVER heard a car go by at night. The view out our door of the Sierra Buttes and the rolling clean lawn was breath taking! Mike the owner is a first class guy. Very friendly and helpful of what to see and do in Sierra County. My little girl loved to feed the fish at the fish pond. We played on the giant lawn in front of the resort. We ate most of our meals in our suite. We did eat breakfast one morning at Herrington's and it hit the spot!
We will be back!

We stayed for 3 nights in a room down by the river. The view was great and it was nice waking up in the morning to hear the peaceful lull of the river. The rooms were basic yet very clean. They don't have phones in the room, but they do have free wireless internet so if you have Skype, its fine. There is NO Cellular service in the entire area for about 20 miles so leave your Blackberry at home. Great value rooms!

The upside to this place is definitely the staff, service, and the restaurant. Have the pork chops, they are incredible. And if you like a big breakfast in the morning, the omelettes are worth a try. You won't leave hungry.

Overall it was an excellent getaway with lots of outdoors things to do. If you can't find an itinerary for the day just ask the owner "Mike" he led us in the right direction for hiking. There are some beautiful walks with very fresh clean air. And after all that walking, save room for dinner. Its good fresh food at great prices if not a little too large of portions.

The views of nature are the high part of the experience. Whether you wish to sit on your private balcony and listen to the river which extends below you in a beautiful canyon, sit peacefully and watch massive trout swim in a pond or observe the breathtaking views, you will find satisfaction with this choice.

The staff were friendly and helpful.

This was our second trip. The experience was relaxing and one we intend to repeat soon, as we have already made return reservations.

If your looking for a place to go and collect your thoughts, relax and take in a beautiful view this is the place to be. The town itself is relaxing, walk up to the little grocery store and sit on the front porch, have an ice cream and watch the locals go by. Head back to your room at the Harrington and sit on your private deck and listen to the river. Relax with the most beautiful view. Then when your ready, walk up to the restaurant and enjoy a wonderful meal. If you take your kids, like we did, they will love the trout pond. Give them a few quarters and they can feed the fish, they love it.

We had never been to Sierra City and decided to take a long weekend trip. We were referred to Herrington's by friends and were very pleased with the accomodations. Our room was very nice and comfortable. We especially liked the balcany, sitting on it and listening to the river below us. The restaurant had excellent food! We loved the area and plan to return to Herrington's in the future.

What great place just to relax and enjoy the beautiful Sierra's. We enjoyed the river and the waterfall we could see from our room. It was nice to have a nice place to have dinner without having to drive anywhere. The service was wonderful and the people were great to work with.
