St. George Hotel
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Volcano
Reviewed May 12, 2014

The St George Hotel is a fantastic place to stay eat and drink. With that said the main reason my husband and myself go to the St George is the colorful and crazy bartender BOB. Bob is quick with a joke and keeps everyone happy and entertained. If you dont stop by the St George Sat for lunch or Sunday for brunch you are missing out ona really good time. I love the Quiche on Sunday soooo good. See you there. D and D

Room Tip: No fitness room that I know of. Very nice area to take a walk.

Headed to Volcano for some photo shooting in Amador County at Daffodil Hill. The Hill on the average stays open mostly from 3 - 4 weeks. Hillsides of freshly blooming Daffodils. Beautiful area. i decided to stay at the St, George Hotel, which is real close to a few attractions that I wanted to get some photos from. Another one of my hobbies is paranormal investigating. A perfect fit for the weekend. The hotel had a presence full of history. My room was small but cozy. Staff was friendly and informative, and the food was excellent. Even though it rained most of the weekend, i still had a very pleasant experience. I can see a diffident return in the future. PS, I did capture a few interesting EVP’s, so it is active.

I had to book 2 nights here for myself and coworkers on a business trip. We were the ONLY people staying at the hotel and yet, they still put them in a room in the new annex building and me in a tiny room in a corner of the second floor of the "haunted" main building.

The saloon was fabulous and bartender was lovely. I wish I could say the same about the hotel staff. Thankfully, after dining in the saloon, the bartender gave me a key to a room next to my coworkers in the annex building.

It was just a strange hotel and they had a really strange policy that shouldn't apply when you're the ONLY guests at their otherwise abandoned hotel. I wish we stayed at the Union which was just a street away but looked much cleaner, newer, and more normal.

Stayed: December 2013, traveled on business

We went here to eat, not to stay the night. We have been going to the bar for a long time. My wife and I like to ride the Harley from Jackson to Volcano, and relax in town for a while. This was our first time going for dinner. We had Chicken Marsala, with risotto, and a burger. Both were cooked perfectly, and the service was excellent!

I am reviewing the St. George Hotel Bar also known as "Whiskey Flat Saloon". This is a destination for all bars!!! In the motherload country nestled in the foothills of the Sierra... What could be better than bellying up to the age old bar being with drinks of your choice!! Love the service staff. Everyone is laid back and so friendly.

Stayed at the St. George on a Saturday night. Two couples stayed in the bungalows and we stayed on the 2nd floor in Hell's Delight. The diningroom was closed for dinner due to a 90th birthday and the backyard area was set up for a high school reunion, but beds were comfortable and noise level wasn't bad. Have to share bathrooms if stay in hotel for most rooms, but there are plenty of bathrooms available and clean. Coffee making supplies available in quaint lounge areas on every floor. This is an old historical building with lots of character, so stairs and floor boards creak, and paint is peeling in places, but it is worth the stay overnight to enjoy a local Volcano Theater production in the evening and not have to drive home. Enjoyed sitting on the balcony outside chatting the next morning and listening to the little town wake up. Breakfast in the restaurant was amazingly good - had the eggs benedict with fruit. Service staff were friendly and quick. Our waitress knew how to read the personalities at the table and went with the flow. The town of Volcano is small (it will take you about 5 minutes to walk the entire town) but it has a lot of interesting history. Black Chasm is close by as well as other Amador County towns worth a visit like Sutter Creek (check out the cheese shop), Amador City (go to Andre's!), Plymouth (Taste and Amador Vintage Market) and wine-tasting in the Shennadoah Valley area.

The whole atmosphere sets everything up. Outback is beautiful, weddings are also held outside. Food is excellent, you can eat inside or out on the porch. They also have a bar menu. In the bar they also cater to you needs and make you feel at home. Will continue going there, very good people and just a very enjoyable time a place to go. The St George Hotel fits in with the old gold town of Volcano. You won't be dissapionted.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The St. George Hotel is located in Volcano-the “Gem of the Mother Lode”, slightly off the beaten path in the Sierra Nevada Foothills of California. This 3-story building with wooden balconies is the first thing you’ll see upon approaching the entrance to town. The St. George Hotel is listed on the national Register of Historic Places.The main Hotel was built in 1862. It is a 3-story brick building with 14 inch thick walls. The Hotel, built by B.F. George, was named “The St. George” to “thwart the demonic Fire Dragon”. The first two Hotels on the site (Eureka in 1853 and Empire in 1859) were destroyed by fire. The Hotel was known in the late 1800’s as the best Hotel in the County. The Hotel was one of the first 3-story buildings in the State, and Volcano is one of the original Gold Rush towns in the Mother Lode.The main Hotel has 14 guestrooms on 2 floors, two with private baths and the remainder with shared bathrooms. An additional one-story annex building, built in the 1960’s, offers 6 rooms with private bathrooms and televisions. Want to bring your dog? No problem. We have one room in the annex which we allow your pet to stay with you for an additional nominal charge. In 2003 the “Garden Cottage” was added and features a private deck, queen size bed, fireplace, double Jacuzzi tub, shower, television and DVD player. At the back side of the property, the Zinfandel Conference Center offers a perfect setting for meetings, gatherings or conferences with its small kitchen, separate queen bedroom and spacious area for seating in the living room and a television.The lovely and magical grounds of the St. George are a joy in every season. They are perfect for outdoor wedding ceremonies, receptions, summer teas and parties. The Daffodils and Tulips in Spring time and the grand trees and flowering bushes in summer provide privacy and shade and offer beautiful outdoor sitting areas throughout the gardens for reading, meditating, or reflecting on simpler times. ... more   less
