We had literally flown into SFO that afternoon, and then embarked on a couple of hours drive to Jamestown so were ready to drop when we arrived. The room was very oldey worldy, like stepping back in time! The staff were very welcoming and on hearing that our accommodation in Yosemite was cancelled (the budget debacle) kindly booked us in for an extra night, and directed us to the state parks which were open!!
We tried out a local restaurant across the street and visited the railway museum and Calaveras Big Trees state park near Arnold.
Did have a moment in the night when the bedside lamp suddenly switched on at dead on midnight. Im sure it must have been a loose connection rather than anything paranormal. Would visit again en route to Yosemite.
