The room was perfect... location, size, value. My husband and I and our 2 year old truly enjoyed our visit. The owners are VERY nice and accommodating.

Of course, the hotel is older and could use a little updating. However, for the price and location, who cares!

Stayed August 2007

My husband and I recently travelled to Columbia, CA. I found this hotel on the Tuolumn County Vistor Bureau website. It is a clean and inexpensive place to stay if you are traveling on a budget. The owner was very nice. My only complaint were that the room we got was a bit creepy, maybe because of the furnitures. But all else were fine. You can book your reservation online through their website.

I've stayed here several times and always enjoyed it. The location is perfect--just across the street from the historic Gold Rush town. When I come here, I usually walk everywhere except for side trips to other towns.

The staff is always friendly and helpful. This motel is not new and is showing a little wear, but it is well-kept and clean. It's set back from the road and is very quiet--and there's almost no traffic at night. There's a pool--in the summer Columbia can get into the 90s or above. It is closed in the winter and the enclosure locked, but one improvement would be to just drain and cover the pool and keep the sitting area available for nice fall days (like when I was just there).

Columbia is a wonderful get-away, less than 3 hours from the Bay Area or Fresno and on the way to Yosemite. Yeah, it's a tourist haven with gold panning and stagecoach rides, but it has historic ambiance and real businesses operating as living history exhibits. There are also hotels and restaurants inside the state park boundaries.

Everything in the historic town is within a moderate walk from the motel--or a short ride for those who need to drive (vehicles park outside, so the atmosphere is preserved). With the motel so near, it's easy to take a nighttime stroll to the old town, walk along the deserted street past the Wells Fargo Express office and imagine what it was like to be an Old West sheriff, prospector, or madam (and unlike many towns, it's perfectly safe to do so).

Columbia is a great place to introduce kids to Western history!

  • Liked — Comfortable, conveniently located
  • Disliked — ?
  • Tips/Secrets — Columbia is more of a spring or summer destination and not aprime ski area. So fall and winter rates are much lower, if you can travel then.

W stayed just one night but we wished we could stay longer. We also stayed in a 2 bedroom suite. My whole family ejoyed, including the kids. The pool was a good entertainer. Only a few blocks away there are lots of cute shops and eateries. The new owners were really accomodating and friendly. The rooms were recently remodelled and attractive. I would definitely recommend this to anyone. A real friendly place to stay.

Stayed only one night but was very happy with the service here. Was able to rent a two bedroom suite for only $79, rooms were clean, quiet, roomy and comfortable. Even provided a fridge and microwave. We were very pleased.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Rob and his fiancé Cheryl have put a lot of hard work, dedication and passion into the Columbia Inn Motel to make it a positive experience. We enjoy meeting and getting to enjoy our guests personally. Our goal is to make everyone feel at home while visiting ours. Rob served 14 years in the Air Force and has had several ventures since. One of which is 49er Mining Supplies, that he opened in 2001 and is currently located adjacent to the motel office. Rob's knowledge of mining is vast and he loves sharing with all. We invite you to come to the Columbia Inn Motel located in the heart of the Mother Lode and take a step back in time. Be sure you take time to visit the historic Columbia State Park which is a short walking distance from us. ... more   less
