Location was excellent.
People walking down the hall were trying to open the door to our room. Weird.
The Ulysses S. Grant room sits right above the bar/dance club and the music is played loud enough so that you can identify the music right through closing time. When I went downstairs (there are no phones) there was sign at the front desk reception to see the bartender in lieu of a manager. I asked if the volume could be lowered I was told there is nothing they could do. The bartender told me that we signed a waiver. What was he talking about? There was no bathroom in room. It was up the hall. Toilets and showers separate and not clean. They call this room their best!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Murphys Historic Hotel is the longest continually operated hotel in California. The Hotel was built in 1856 and we try to keep our nine historic rooms as close to that time period as possible. If you are to stay within the Historic Hotel you are without T.V., Phone, A/C, and of course a bathroom... but how often do you get to share a shower down the hall? You may bump into a ghost while enjoying a little piece of history. We also have twenty modern hotel rooms that have been improved more recently with new T.V.'s, Beds, A/C's, and Windows. We do have plans to remodel all bathrooms but Rome wasn't built in a day. We also have a full service restaurant which is open for breakfast, lunch, & dinner 365 days a year along with a full service saloon. The Murphys Historic Hotel is also within walking distance to over 20 different wine tasting rooms and our community park. While you are here please let me know how we are doing. We hope to see you soon!Sincerely, Brian ... more less
