Great value for you money. The place offers much more than what you pay.

Unique getaway
Desk clerk Joshua was welcoming and informative. The hotel is fascinating. Beautiful stained glass in the lobby, and artifacts like a 19th century guest registry. Loved having the mini fridge and microwave in the room, and the antique four poster bed was too cool. AND -- dog friendly! Will definitely be back.

step into the past. Historic and clean.
The elevator is as historic as the hotel. It was a real challenge. But the room was very clean. There was a firestation across the streen so I did hear some sirens. Could also hear sounds from the street below, but it did not detract from my stay!

10/10 Would Recommend
If you’re keen to California history, this hotel stay is for you. I loved the ambiance and what really made my stay most enjoyable was the service by the front desk. I cannot wait to visit Placerville again!

The young man who was our first contact not so great. The woman Saturday afternoon when we checked in was great but the Sunday morning desk person was fantastic. We had a big cozy room, unfortunately faced Main Street and it was loud until 3 am because of bar. The hotel was perfectly located and tons to do so take the good with the bad.

Cool lobby& rooms, clean, lively area, own parking
There is a parking lot in the back, they give you a permit ticket for your car. The rooms are nice, clean, and cozy. Bathroom has the standard soap/shampoo/conditioner/lotion set. Walls are kind of thin - Room 300 was a corner room with a staff room between it and the next room, but we could still hear conversations in the hall. Restaurants and bars within a block.

Cary House stay
We love Placerville and the historic Cary House hotel. I think they could do more to match their furnishings with the feel of the hotel. It’s a very old hotel which is super cool so you wouldn’t expect a semi-modern room. (70’s era, eeek) Antiques are appropriate. More of those, please.

Amazing place to stay when getting married!
We stayed here for two nights for our wedding. We stayed in one of the large King suites so we would have enough room for me and the bridesmaids to get ready for the wedding. The room was great and we had plenty of room to get ready. The balcony was perfect for our "first look" pictures. The staff we encountered were awesome and they let us take wedding pix in the lobby. The whole building is absolutely beautiful. The only thing that went wrong was that on the checkout morning, the elevator was down, but luckily we were only on the second floor.
