"Covered the Basics"
When staying at a motel, I have 2 basic needs: a place to sleep and a hot shower. Railtown covered off on both those (but warning, showerhead is low for any tall people). I reserved 3 nights in a King size room (put me in deluxe room with broken jacuzzi tub). Mini fridge & microwave were very handy. Free HBO was nice, too. The room was "clean" meaning […] it seemed everything had been laundered but there were definitely stains in the sheets and on the furniture. The shower curtain bottom was lined with some mildew. All things I didn't mind for the price but wanted to call it out for any travelers who might. I had a lower level corner room in the back section. Wifi was borderline unusable in that area but it was quiet. Overall, Jamestown was a pleasant little town (vacant on a week day) and the motel was nestled right at the end of Main St so it was an easy stroll to all the antique shops and dining. I'd stay there again if the price were right. However, I wouldn't recommend Jamestown as a hub for visiting Yosemite. Very curvy road that's pretty tiring. (Almost 2 hrs to Yosemite Valley.) Great stopover town on the way there or back, though. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to all must-see sights"
The room and indoor spa could have been cleaner.The water needed to be turned on in the spa from Mgmt daily or nightly. the bed and pillows were hard. The location was great for what we wanted to do. pool was clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I wouldn't recommend this hotel. The room was advertised as having a jacuzzi tub in the room, but upon arrival was told we would need to pay an additional $125 to use it. Why advertise something and then set an additional cost that is so high as to discourage it? Not sure it even worked by the condition of it. The room was not well maintained and the […] bed was dreadfully uncomfortable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"1 night stay for yosemite"
pros: Comfortable beds and pillows, no problem with late check in, very friendly hotel manager, no noise in neighborhood. Cons: Nothing to eat in neighborhood in late night, its a remote small town, no near by gas station. Overall: 4/5 and recommended for 1 night stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"RIght down town Jamestown; close to many places"
Staff was excellant and helpful; a half block from Main street. and a few miles from two casinos and Sonora. Room was equiped with microwave/and small refrig.; everything appeared to be neat and clean. Again staff was very helpful and responsive to requests, directions, eating suggestions etc.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Friendly staff at Railroad Motel"
The Railroad Motel is close to shops and within walking distance of the Railroad 1897 Park. Our room was clean with the exception of a dirty shower curtain. The mattress was comfortable, but whenever my husband or I turned over in bed, the other one of us was bounced. The motel staff was friendly; however, we were given a room on the first floor despite […] requesting a second floor room. Then we were woken by guests who were given the room we requested when they used the staircase outside our room. Our room had a refrigerator and microwave, but we had to go to the motel lobby for our morning coffee. Despite these issues, we would probably stay at the Railroad Motel again. The price was right.

"Close to Railtown 1897"
We needed a place to stay near Railtown 1897 so we could get there early for a special event. The staff of the hotel was great; very friendly and welcoming. Our only complaints were the walls are so thin you can hear your neighbors and the heater was loud. It is a fine place for a quick overnight though. Our room was pretty spacious and was enough room […] for 4. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfy stay in Jamestown Railtown Motel"
It was fine for me! Good value for price Great location almost right in the charming downtown. It was very clean except a soiled towel behind the one chair and a gum wrapper on the floor which kind of indicated maybe they missed cleaning the floor but the room was comfy, decent bed for sure. The heater and something that came on intermittently outside […] the room were both a little noisy during the night. I only stayed one night, missed using the in room hot tub as I was too busy while in town but it looked nice and very clean! I would definitely stay there again.

"right in the heart of Jamestown"
We were pleasantly surprised! Booked the room with a king size bed and got a GIANT Jacuzzi tub as a bonus! Had a great time...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"For the price"
For the price and location it was great for what I needed. Has a very large spa tub which was nice, but no coffee maker, hair dryer, or iron which were things I had expected. On the plus side it did have a fridge and mircowave. Walking distance from downtown Jamestown. I will stay here againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very old but nice service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not bad for the price"
We had reserved a room with a king bed and wheelchair accessibility. I even called in advance to confirm the special requirement. It turns out that they only have an accessible room with a queen bed, but they didn't tell us about it over the phone. We only realized this long after we were had checked in, and were ready to get in bed. The three of us […] (a couple with a toddler) couldn't have fit comfortably on that bed. So we went to the office and complained, when we were told they didn't have such a room. But the manager immediately got us a decent roll-in bed, which we were satisfied with. Overall, our stay was pleasant. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Terrible attitude of reception staff"
Overflowing bins of rubbish, room not made up and a guy on reception who was obviously asleep and was the rudest grumpiest and unpleasant hotel reception person I have ever encountered . He should get a different job if he does not wish to do his job. If it was not so late I would have tried to find another hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean, close to downtown, reasonable price"
The hotel was easy to find and has convenient parking. There is a pool, which we did not try even though there were people with kids obviously enjoying it. The hotel is older but everything worked. The room was spacious with a fridge and a microwave, but the table was fairly small, barely adequate for breakfast for 2. The TV was an old CRT type hooked […] to Direct TV. The bed (queen size) was comfortable, with extra pillow and blanket. Internet was not available in the room (too low a signal). You had to take your device (laptop or tablet) to the bench outside the office for a signal, not the most convenient setup. However, I had decent 3G signal strength on my Verizon phone at the hotel (4G apparently not available in the area) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The rooms were clean enough. The motel in general is old and rundownGenuine Expedia guest review
We stayed at Railtown for two nights while panning for gold and visiting Columbia, etc. It was inexpensive and "just ok". It was clean, but the room was very minimalist.... Might have looked around for another hotel or preferred to stay in Sonora which appeared to have better hotels for the same price.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great stay but too far away from the Yosemite ParkGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Spider found on bed and smell in water"
Strange smell in water and even after I boiled. My son was scared by a spider found on his bed. Staff attitude was not nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"located just off main street"
no breakfast or coffee but has ice machine. clean and pet friendly, excellent location in heart of old Jamestown, would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
When we arrived, the room's air conditioning wall unit was not on and the outside temperature was 100. We turned on the small unit and left for approximately 3 hours, we could not stay in room, it was so uncomfortable. I inquired about the lack of air and was told it would cool down. The bathroom floor was dirty, hair along the wall, not ours. Overall, […] I would not recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very Basic hotel"
This hotel is similar to an average Motel 6. It was good for one night stay as I was heading to Yosemite. Price was right because it's 50 miles from Yosemite. Hotel was clean but the bed was too soft for my taste. Air conditioner worked well and was fairly quiet. Area is quiet with no traffic. Avg sized pool. My Garmin GPS was off by 1/8 mile and I […] had to ask how to find the hotel. Don't expect any frills. Would stay here again but I'm not picky about my hotels. I just want a good nite's sleep.

I reserved a King size bed but assigned a queen instead. The front desk personnel was cold, impatient, and made me feel unwelcome.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"No Internet in my room"
Unfortunately the Internet coverage did not work in my room, and the lock on the door was barely functional. The pool, however, was really great. And you can't beat this location, mere steps from jamestown's historic Main St. Walk up through the neighborhood to the Railway area in the morning if you get a chanceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice small town hotel"
The room was clean. The staff were very friendly. We stayed here for our visit to yosemite. We felt that we should have booked a room closer to yosemite because the drive up the hill was strenuous. It took us about 1.45 hours from Jamestown to yosemite. If you need a place for the night and don't want to spend a lot of money on your accommodation this […] place would be good. It has clean rooms, good service, free Internet, microwave, refrigerator. It does not have a coffee maker! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The location was very convenient and the room was clean and quiet (even though on the ground floor) but the AC, an essential in Jamestown in June was barely working, and the management seemed to be aware of the problem but had done nothing to correct it. We got in late and thought the room would cool eventually, but it never did. It was 82 in the room […] when we went to bed and still over 76 when we got up despite setting the AC on the coolest possible setting. The hot water was scalding and the "cold" water was warn. In addition, there was no coffee maker in the room and no hair dryer. The chair that was placed in front of the table wouldn't fit under it. The entire place seemed to be suffering from neglect.

"Convenient and Reasonable"
We were happy with our stay. We were looking for a basic place to sleep and that's what we got, at a very decent price. Everything was ready when we checked in, we had no other need to contact the staff, and experienced no problems with our stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"reasonable Motel in Jamestown, but overpriced."
Nothing special to expect. just an old style motel that would need some remodeling, but tenant is very nice and the location is very good if you are in the Jamestown area. It is a little bit too pricey for what you get.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice place to stay"
Very nice stay. I spent 3 nights, it was quiet and friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Right off of historic downtown, Jamestown and con"
Right off of main street - historic Jamestown's downtown shops and restaurants - convenient to Railtown. The room was quiet and spacious but I've stayed in much cleaner motels.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"convenient for a night stop over"
hotel is easily reached from the freeway, there are a couple of good places to eat, there is a steak house just about the corner which is good. rooms are very old, heating was good, has parking, cleanliness and ambiance was average. we stayed only for a night, it is okay as a a one or two night stop over placeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"For the price you pay is good"
Everything was ok , the hotel was very close to a railtown museum which was very good, close to Sonora. Direct tv service in a room which gives a lot of different channels to watch, the only thing that was annoying to me that i was not able to use the Internet at all even I got the Internet access code . It seemed like a bad connection there. There […] was no hair dryer which created additional problem for me too. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A friendldly environment to stay"
We had a very pleasant stay at this motel. Some ratings about this motel were discouraging and made me anxious as we were driving on our way ( since we booked before I even thought of reading the ratings) but I would say that we have had a very nice experience during our stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel for the price"
They have new carpet, tile, and furniture. Unfortunately they do not have new beds and they are pretty hard. If you like a firm bed you should be fine. The curtains are really bad and need replacing. The big downfall is the jacuzzi in the room must be booked separately and there is an additional cost to use it. Seems crazy to us to have something in […] a room you pay for like a tub/jacuzzi but have to pay a separate fee to use it. Just raise the cost of the room if needed and don't make people ask to use it. They get very few TV channels and no ESPN so that's reason enough for some not to stay there. The front desk staff were not very friendly and we felt like it was a bother for him to come from his home/office to check us in. If you are looking for cheap, clean and in a cute little town with several shops this is a good place to stay. If you want a soft bed, free in-room jacuzzi and ESPN you may want to look elsewhere. We would have also liked a coffee pot in the room but there is a refrigerator and microwave. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect gold country hotel!"
This is a great hotel to use as your base to explore the gold country. The hotel is right off of main street so you can walk to eat and explore. The hotel in my opinion is really nice and ideal for this area. I stayed with my family and we had two rooms and both were really nice. I hope to return and stay at this hotel soon.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Fine for a one night stopover"
Starting with bathroom: small but adequate, low shower but lots of pressure; sink(1)pitted and stained; Salvation Army furniture, but bed good, and mattress comfortable. The two of us were there for 3 nights; first night only one small bar of soap; 2nd night 3 small bars, and none the 3rd night..2 plastic glasses clean each day but no coffee in room; […] also no clock in room.Carpet is old bt was clean.

"Enjoyed our stay"
Small pool but it was nice to cool off, hours could be longer 9am-9pm. Loved the location & old buildings. See the shops downtown w/in walking distance in the afternoon because they don't open until 10am. Overall a great stay! I would stay there again/recommend it to friends.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Walking distance to Historic Main Street"
The motel was clean, well kept. We weren't looking for posh extras, so this was perfect. One block from Main Street with shops and restaurants. Easy drive to visit the Giant Redwoods, and other towns in the gold country!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Better than expected"
Comfortable clean room. Only problem was that many of the lightbulbs were burned out. Great location. Pool was nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"not a good hotel to stay for Yosemite."
Everything is ok. However, the air conditioner was taken about 5 hours to get your room cool off. The air conditioner is about at least 20 years old.Genuine Expedia guest review
Checked in after riding all day. The room was clean, cool and just what I needed. The Jacuzzi really helped with the heat and sore muscles. With the Willow Steakhouse right next door, I couldn't ask for anything more.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
