"why Jamestown rocks"
quiet, much nicer than Sonora where the road goes straight through townGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"For a Historical feel, you must stay here."
We stayed in a bedroom downstairs with our own bathroom. People were very noisy above us which can be heard loudly, but only till they got settled.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is very pretty, nostalgic and cosy so that we enjoyed our stay very much. Staff was friendly and you could reach nice restaurants and shops within a few meters. Breakfast was ok.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Proximity to Yosemite"
I chose this hotel because of price and the proximity to Yosemite which was my target for this trip. I have been wanting to get to Yosemite since I purchased my camera some 2 years ago! Everything came together for a 4 day get away to the park. I had a week of vacation, a yearly bonus that was not spent already, and no Grandfatherly responsibilities! […] I was in a panic, as I had not planned anything ahead of time. I immediately got on Expedia to check out the possibilities of a vacancy on my time off. To my surprise there were quite a few choices at different price ranges. I chose the Royal Carriage based upon my raise and under 2 hours from the park. To look back I wish that I had another driver because the 1hr.- 45min. drive to and then back did start to wear on me. I did take one day and visit the surrounding area as well. I visited Twainharte and a couple surrounding lakes to photograph the autumn colors. All went well, I got some great pix and had enough in me to drive home safely.

We shared a bath for the first time and it actually went better than we expected.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Quaint & Charming Hotel in 49er Country"
This place has always had a special place in our heart. They are under new management since we last stayed there. We really missed Jennifer, she was a hoot. Anyway the staff we met this time were very nice, the hotel is over 80 years old, but they have WIFI, flat screen TVs and little cottages with kitchens if you want something bigger than just a hotel […] room. Some rooms you have to share a bathroom, but if you book in advance you can chose a room or cottage that you don't have to do that. This time our room was in the main house on the 2nd floor and it had its own access to the back patio area with a porch swing and couches and a view of their little courtyard style garden. Its not fancy, but is comfortable. I really enjoyed our stay. And the price was reasonable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"RIGHT IN DOWNTOWN JAMESTOWN"
WALK ANYWHERE YOU LIKE. GREAT SMALL SHOPS. FOOD ALSO IN WALKING DISTANCE. GREAT WEEKEND GETAWAY. FANTASTIC IF YOU LIKE HISTORIC BUILDINGS.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel has great potential, but...."
We stayed there for visiting Yosemite Park - it is a bit of a drive there, but that's OK. Hotel rooms were nice, but VERY small; also you could hear doors banging. Hotel also still has "shared bathrooms" - we booked rooms WITH bathrooms, but the bathrooms were very small with the sink in the bedroom. Breakfast was a BIG disappointment - VERY, VERY basic. […] However, hotel is nice and I would consider taking it again. It does not do itself a favour I feel and has with a few changes the potential to be a fabulous "boutique" hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
For the price, we were very surprised about what we got. We stayed in a cottage that is behind a Victorian hotel in Jamestown, California - very close to all of the activity in Sonora. I didn't really pay attention when I booked so I thought we would be staying in a room in the old hotel. When we realized that we got a cottage with a fully stocked kitchen […] (including a dishwasher, full size fridge, sink and antique full size table), we felt quite fortunate (the dish set was even the exact same one that I have at home!). We had booked last minute and expected that it would be lacking. The place was clean, decorated very nicely. It has a flat screen tv, a convertible sofa, a coffee table, a closet with an ironing board/iron. Cute lamp on the one bedside table (my guy commented that he was missing one!). The bed could be better - we didnt' care for it much - but it's not like it kept us awake or anything. We both woke a little sore the next day as it was somewhat hard. My rating is 4 out of 5. If you want a small place that is clean with homey comforts like high ceilings and crown molding and hardwood flooring, and you don't expect perfection, this will be perfect for you. We'd definitely stay there again! :) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quaint and friendly but tired"
A sleepy hotel in a sleepy town which might be what you are after. But it looks and feels old, not in the full of character or rustic charm sense. Rooms were not dirty but not spotless either. Very friendly and helpful staffGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Could have been better"
Wonderful little town. Inn looks nice from the outside but poorly maintained. Lots of problems in the room (we had one of the cabins). Friendly staff and nice, although limited breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The staff make this hotel a winner"
The three staff members that I met, Alexis, Dillon and Melissa were all outstanding people. I would hire all of them for my company. Alexis, is by far the best concierge I have ever met. She will do well throughout her life. Why? One of the most lovely attitudes and personalities I have met in several years.Genuine Expedia guest review
"about our cottage"
We got a cottage with a couch bed and when we pulled it away from the wall we found it had a broken leg. We intended on telling the hotel owners but we left and then remembered after we were back on the road. The people were helpful and the cottage we had was older but quaint with a kitchen supplied with a little dishware and silverware, a stove, oven, […] refrigerator, dishsoap and stuff like that. We accidentally dropped the coffee grounds and it would have been nice if there had been a broom and dustpan in the room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was alright in its current condition, it could probably still be improved, but the over all experience was great felt like it was a bed and breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Nice stayed for only one day on a motorcycle trip. It was nice!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quaint Town, OK Location, Weird Layout"
The room (1 King) we stayed at was affordable, had a backdoor that makes parking lot to room access very easy, and it was 1.5 hours from Yosemite. The layout of the room makes sharing the room pretty inconvenient, but I'm not sure if that's just the "feature" of one room, or all of the rooms. The sink is outside the bathroom, but the bathroom door, […] in its open position blocks the walkway to the sink. The town was quiet and the population were mostly older besides some other tourists. The breakfast was very sad, there were almost no options, not even eggs. Go see the sunrise at Glacier Point, do not plan your trip around breakfast. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"NO BATHROOM AVAILABLE PER ROOM"
HAD TO SHARE A BATHROOM WITH THE WHOLE FLOOR. THE TOILET AREA DID NOT HAVE A SINK TO WASH YOUR HANDS.THE ROOM WAS SO SMALL THAT WE HAD A HARD TIME OPENING THE SUITCASESGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Two Nights Away"
Very Nice Hotel. Don't expect modern here. Quaint. And staff was very friendly. Breakfast was complimentary--juice coffee pancakes oatmeal. Nothing fancy here. Just right.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Charming old, historic hotel and cottages."
We had a pleasant stay in this charming old hotel in the heart of the Sierra Gold Country. The staff was very gracious, attentive and accommodating.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Bathroom shared with three more rooms!"
Hotel staff is extremely nice. Room is old but clean. Bathroom (at the end of the hall) to be shared with three other rooms! Hard to sleep if people in the room above you are moving in the evening or during the night. The noise will wake you up! Everything in jamestown closes around 6 pm so forget about a restaurant. It is a nice place if you want to […] experience the comfort of almost a hundred years ago against a very overprized rate during the weekend. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful room in a quiet town"
The hotel is in a 90 years old building in a railtown in northern California. The building itself is beautiful, with a porch and yard in the back, with vintage furnitures and beautiful decorations. The staffs are really friendly, the free breakfast is great, and all sheets and towels are very clean. The only con might be the room is a bit small and […] does not leave you much room, but you can always sit in their garden to read or chat. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
It was a cute hotel with nice people and yummy pancakes. I will be back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The nicest hotel staff I have ever met!"
A very friendly welcome from the charming young woman at the front desk. Lots of help from the very nice young man when we checked out and needed advice and directions to a swimming area. We stayed in the cottage and think the extra cost is well worth it for the larger room and kitchen. Really enjoyed the back garden.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Worked for a gateway into Yosemite"
The staff as overwhelmingly accommodating. Cute little town and worked for us as we entered into Yosemite park.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Surprise! Shared Bathroom!!!"
Very unusual hotel, bathrooms are across the hall and unless you wish to pay for a private use (but still across the hall) you will be sharing with strangers. This is a nicely restored but small hotel in a historic area and in a very interesting local.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
great value ..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Interesting historical area near Yosemite"
Stayed in the historic building structure on the property. It had been nicely decorated for its period. Room was a little small. Breakfast was limited but nice. Location was pretty good - historic Jamestown and about an hour from Yosemite. Carpet was pretty dirty in the room but the bed was comfortable though the frame squeaked with merely rolling over. […] internet did not work the first day but was fixed the second day of stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"good one night stand"
Staff was first rate. They went out of their way to make us comfortable and were very helpful.Our room was as small as they come with no room for our bags. Tiny bathroom to match. It was clean, and they did manage to squeeze in a frig, TV, microwave oven and a coffee maker. What is perfect about this place is its in a cute town close to Yosemite. I […] would stay there again if all I need is a place to sleep and shower which is why we chose it in the first place. Priced right. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Pleasant stop over in Jamestown"
Not a friend of 'In's' and usually a bit suspicious, I was pleasantly surprised by this one! Small town (every thing closes early, but Sonora is close by), quite cabins, nice garden. Best thing: wooden floors, not old, stained carpet as in so many places. The only thing annoying me a bit was the noise when toilet flushes in next door cabin, very loud. […] Folks next door decided not to use in the night, so it wasn't a problem really :) Will definetely book again when in the region! Ps: the railway museum is GREAT for photographers!

"Nice place to stay for atmosphere."
We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel, we booked through the internet so we're never sure until we get there. Staff was very nice and pleasant and the bed was comfortable. The shower and bathroom was ok. No bathtub. Breakfast was good with great pancakes they make while you wait. Great atmophere with all the history and creeky floors, reminded […] ,me more of a bed and breakfast than hotel. Would stay again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Friendly staff, Ok accommodations"
We booked this hotel at the last minute for an overnight stay and selected it as seemingly the best of the few options available. It has a cute lobby and breakfast area,and the building has an authentic historical feel (which I prefer). The room was small and sparsely furnished, but I'd seen photos online so knew what to expect. The room condition was […] only just adequate - sink worked fine but the coating was cracked, some peeling of baseboards. etc. - but it was sufficient for our needs. The worst feature was that the central A/C vent was very loud, which made it difficult to fall asleep at night, and I didn't realize that the overhead fan was controlled by the light switch and couldn't figure out how to turn the fan on when we went to sleep (I figured this out the next morning). The person at the desk said he would have been happy to come up to the room to help us with the A/C and fan. Also light from the hallway seeped in around the edges of the door at night. The desk personnel were very nice and helpful and also oriented us to things to do in the area. OK for a short stay if you're traveling on a budget and don't mind the spartan conditions.

"Nice ~~needs work"
The owners are new and upgrading the whole place. Our room needed a new air conditioner~it was 108 the days we were there~also for some reason~~the bedding did not fit the bed~Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great little escape to yesteryear."
The whole town and the hotel/inn have capitalized on the gold mining history and have captured the feeling of the 1800s, while still providing modern amenities. We especially enjoyed visiting the railroad museum. We especially appreciated the friendliness of the townspeople, old and young alike. The inn staff was very welcoming, and quickly made some […] adjustments for us, like "de-feathering" our room. (Some will enjoy the down comforters....achoo for me!) Set your expectations of the mid 1800s, and you'll thoroughly enjoy the architecture, the quaint shops and the opportunity to get really laid back! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Cool, old hotel."
The service was so friendly, I forgave the moldy smell in the room. Room was very clean, new bathroom. I think the mold is either in the walls, or floor. It's a very old building, but the room was freshly painted. We were on the bottom floor. Upper floors probably don't smell. Service was great and the breakfast room is really nice. I would stay again, […] but ask for an upper room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Do not expect privacy"
Let me just say that the staff was awesome and tried to accommodate me as best as they could under the circumstances. For them, I apologize, but here it goes. We got cottage #4, which was barely adequate upon first glance. There was no sofa bed (we booked one with sofa bed), or any other furniture other than the bed itself and 2 chairs. This was not […] the only problem, the door to the kitchen had a dummy knob (a door without any mechanisms to shut and secure) and it was built on an incline, so the door to the kitchen would swing open. The kitchen has windows that you can see people walking by (and they can see right into our bedroom) this was alleviated by jamming a towel in between the door. The place had obviously been renovated recently and it was done extremely poorly. The shower was a coffin that sprayed water and all the pipes would jiggle and shake as you tried to make the temp correct, also all the temperature controls for all sinks were reversed. The next morning I expressed my displeasure with the cottage we were put in and the staff changed us to cottage 8. This was a million times better and I cant really complain except for the glaring holes in the curtains and drapes on the windows, and the huge windows in the door, that again people could see right into our room where our bed is. This was alleviated by again, using one of our towels to block the view. TL;DR: No privacy, shoddy renovations, wrong booking Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Overpriced do to location but quaint."
Quaint, old Victorian hotel. Cute but some things to consider are the walls are too thin and for some of the rooms you have to share the shower/bathroom with other tenants. Good continental breakfast. Convenient parking. Staff very friendly and the room/lobby is clean.Genuine Expedia guest review

"A quaint little hideaway"
I stayed in private cottage in the back and the cottage included a full kitchen, which was useful since almost all the restaurants in town were closed by 8 PM on Saturday night. My friend and I were happy that we were able to walk down the street to the corner market to buy some food to cook for dinner. :) The staff here was super friendly and eager […] to help.

"Funky Old Hotel"
Room was very small and cramped. So much has been crammed into the room (microwave, frig, coffee maker, dresser) there is no room to open the suitcase except on the clean bed linens. Bathroom was the smallest closet ever! My husband who is not a big man could barely get in the bathroom and close the door. Management staff were great and very helpful […] but haven't been their very long so still new at the location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
