We spent 1 night here while exploring the Gold Rush country onward to Yosemite.
The property is located conveniently in the center of town, and I thought it was very reasonably priced.
It's not really a destination where you go to hang out in the room. Our room had sort of an awkward configuration, but it was comfortable for sleeping purposes.
With regards to the bathroom, there is a glitch with the shower temperatures, which we were warned about ahead of time. Ok for one night, but I'm not sure that I would want to deal with it on an ongoing basis.
The pool area is small, but a nice treat on a hot day. The exterior was a bit worn and the pool needed to be cleaned, but we stuck our feet in anyways.
They do offer a breakfast, and my boyfriend and I took one look at each other and determined that we would rather eat somewhere else. It wasn't really maintained and was all pre-packaged baked goods, not great start for a trek to Yosemite.
Overall, I liked the hotel and would stay again when exploring the area.
