We had a really hard time finding a place to stay in Virginia City for our timeline so felt fortunate to get anything. While this hotel is historic and all, there is a fine line between shabby-chic and just plain run down. Being right on the main street of the town, it is a great location and one feel's like they have stepped back in time. And while most folks expect to have their own bathrooms at a hotel, it is not the case in some places. We scored with our own bathroom. The room was spacious and even had a fan as their is no central air in historic hotels and it does get hot in Montana. Be forewarned that there is NO SHOWER. Only a bathtub. The beds are doubles but were very comfortable. The room was clean - just shabby. Charming to a point but I think that some money should be put into some upkeep. And the painted furniture took away from the period we should have felt. Distressed furniture would be better than everything painted bright blue or yellow, etc. And they need to dump the gingerbread trim along the ceiling and window frame - really? In the old west?
Overall, a good place to lay your head. Friendly desk people. Just don't expect too much for a piece of the olden days. No large beds. No shower. No little shampoos to take!
