Built in 1856, this hotel is in a great location and does bring a bit of the gold rush days to life; however, the rooms are not up to standards of today. We felt the room was reasonably clean, but the furnishings and the carpet were extremely tired. Sitting on the chairs was not comfortable. The mattress was really bad and one of us slept on the daybed in our suite, which did have a reasonable mattress. The bathroom was very small – you could literally wash your hands while on the toilet. The bar and restaurant looked very inviting, but on a Saturday night, there was no one in the restaurant, so we went elsewhere.
