We stayed for 2 nights at the Fallon Hotel, in one of the front rooms with a balcony overlooking Parrott's Ferry Road. This restored hotel has an authentic feel to it. The rooms have just toilet and wash basin in them. The shower is down the hall and is communal, just the way it would have been during the Gold... More

We stepped back in time for 2 nights in Columbia and the Fallon Hotel was a great place to stay. Great period room with the addition of efficient (and quiet) aircon. Spent an evening at the theatre watching 'The State Fair' and lost the kids for hours while they panned for gold.

We spent 2 nights and had 3 rooms, a beautiful hotel. We had rooms 1 , 2, and 15. Arrived late and met a warm friendly woman, Kathy.

My husband reserved a room here for a two day stay. Upon entering the hotel to the front desk, we were greeted by a gentleman dresses in 1800's attire. He was polite and truly welcoming.

Best play I have ever, EVER seen! I cannot offer enough kudos to to the cast in this magnificent, yet tragic life of one of America's greats. So wonderfully done, the show was absolutely perfect...the acting, the music, the historic setting in this wonderful old mining town.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Fallon Hotel. Since the State Park service has taken it over, the service is excellent. They just replaced the mattresses and pillows, so the bed was very comfortable. My wife and I saw some very strange goings on during the night, it was very exciting!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Columbia City Hotel and its sister, the Fallon Hotel, are authentically restored 19th-century country inns. All rooms are elegantly appointed with Victorian antiques, custom crafted wall coverings, and beautiful lithographs. Each hotel has a sitting parlour where you can peruse books and magazines, or participate in one of many board games. While both hotels stay as faithful to 19th century decor as possible, modern conveniences such as indoor plumbing, heating. And air conditioning have been added. Each room has a half bath, and a shower basket and robes are provided for the trip down the hall to the shared shower rooms. There are also three charming cottages- a one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom- each with a full kitchen, fenced yard and DVD player. ... more   less
