“A cross between a Far West rooming house and a small hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2013

We stopped here midweek on the last night of a one-week road trip. Walked in quite late, and the innkeeper was very kind and took us in, even showed us the room before booking. Great service. The room was small but comfortable, clean, and with all the basics. Breakfast was complimentary, but no options - pancakes and apples - a bit of a stretch to call it "continental".
We had the misfortune of having our car vandalized overnight, and the innkeeper and his staff were very helpful in contacting the local sheriff, recommending local service, and accommodating our late departure.
The price was right and the bed was comfortable, so overall we had a very nice stay despite the mishap.

Room Tip: Rooms in the hotel are small but comfortable. No info on the cottages.

Stayed here for a couple of nights so as to have access to Yosemite NP. It was quite a drive out but much cheaper than staying nearer and the drive to and from the NP was spectacular.
Jamestown is great, a little like you imagine an old western cowboy town. The hotel reminded us of an old saloon. The staff were all great, helpful, professional, polite and friendly. the complimentry breakfast and breakfast room were excellent. The pancakes that were cooked for us were the best we've ever eaten (and we've eaten a lot) Our room at the back had 2 doors, one went staright onto a small, pretty porch.
We felt that our room was far too small, with no wardrobe or room to swing-a- cat. Plus you had to pay more to have private bathroom. But the bed was soft and lovely. Overall a great stay and one we'd recommend for a couple of nights.

Room Tip: Try to stay in a room with a door to the porch. If it's quiet you may not have to pay the extra...

Stayed here in a cottage over the Memorial Day holiday. It was spacious with some nice amenities, but I found the unit difficult to be comfortable in. I guess there was really no comfortable chair to settle down in to watch television. Just the bed. The kitchen had a full size refrigerator/freezer.

There were a lot of odd things going on that detracted from a true boutique experience. For example, the hardwood floor was nice and shiny, but either the floor wasn't level or the door was ill-fitting because the door bottom scratched up the lovely floor when I tried to open the door wide. In other words the door would wedge up against the floor so you couldn't completely open the door. The venetian blinds would not adjust (i.e. swivel to let in more or less light). In fact, sections of the louvers were missing. In the kitchen, there was lots of silverware, but only one setting of a plate and bowl. There was dish soap, but no dishtowels or paper towels. The bathroom was very nice, but the medicine cabinet was placed 90 degrees to the wash basin, with the mirror hinged so that it faced away from you when you opened the medicine cabinet. This made shaving a challenge. In fact I nicked myself shaving for the first time in over five years. Also, there was no light fixture in the bathroom, just the bare bulb. See the pictures that I attached.

The evenings were surprisingly mild and I really had no need to use the air conditioner. I opened one of the windows in the sleeping area (the one with the broken blinds). The other window did not have a screen and I didn't want bugs coming in so I left that one shut. I also opened the window in the bathroom and I got good cross ventilation that kept the cottage at a comfortable temperature. Most of the other occupants in adjacent units ran their air conditioner all night.

The price paid was still a great value for the room and I won't hesitate to stay here again. But honestly, it can't be compared to a full-fledged boutique hotel, which is why I gave it a rating of only 3 dots/spots.

We stayed here for two nights while we visited Yosemite, while it was about a 2 hour drive to Yosemite, we are glad we chose to stay here rather than much more expensive alternatives closer to Yosemite. The staff were really friendly, we originally booked just a double room, but on arrival we were checked into one of the cottages, which came with a fully functioning kitchen; stove, fridge, plates, cutlery etc. The rooms were very clean and quaint and the town itself was like stepping back in time. Although we didn't end up making the most of it, we were offered free breakfast as well. It was a really pleasant place to be. Had we known how lovely this place was, we would have booked to stay for longer! Great for wanting to do a bit of self catering and also as a base for Yosemite. We would definitely return here!

We arrived in Jamestown in the evening of June 28, 2013 during a very hot spell. The temperature was supposed to be 107 on June 29. The hotel representatives showed us two air conditioned options and we chose the cabin. The price was excellent for the accommodations. The hosts are friendly, unpretentious, and helpful. I highly recommend Royal Carriage Inn.

Room Tip: The cabins are a good value with a full kitchen and a bathtub.
