We stayed at the Cary House as we were in town for a friend's family gathering in the area.
In this hotel you are staying for the experience and the sense of history that it engenders. From a mods and cons perspective it doesn't really have many of those. It does have the oldest lift car in the west of the USA (or soemthing like that). However. it is in general a very comfortable experience and we found that we slept very soundly for the few nights we were staying.
The property is right on the main street of Placerville, which in itself is a great little town to explore the main street on foot. Things look and feel like a step back in time, and it adds to the experience of choosing the hotel as well.
We didn't eat at the property as we didn't organise ourselves well enough, although with all of the options at the doorstep this does not present a challenge for the guest.
If you are tossing up the bland brand vs. the experiential hotel, choose this one.
