Where to start? First of all, when we got home we watched the episode of Hotel Impossible that was referred to in several places. I sure wish we had done that first! We don't usually watch those shows, but it explained so much, and gave us much more appreciation for the hotel and understanding of the history and importance of...

Wonderful establishment with rooms furnished in antiques. The bar/restaurant served very good food and drinks. The staff was friendly. Didn't see ghosts though they're there. Note only some rooms have a private bath. Will surely go back.

My fiance and I had a lot of fun staying here for two nights in the beginning of June. We stayed for two nights, on a Sunday and Monday. On Sunday, we went to the Backyard Blues and BBQ event on the back of the property (free for hotel guests). We shared a delicious pulled pork BBQ plate and listened...

A short drive from Sacramento, nestled in a beautiful area with a wealth of things to do. This historic hotel is lovely. The staff is friendly and helpful, the service is excellent. The grounds are beautiful, and don't miss the old jail in the basement. We didn't have any drinks in the bar, but, the restaurant is excellent. Both the...

We stayed two nights in the Hotel Leger in Mokelumne Hill and enjoyed ourselves immensely. The area is full of things to see and do so a couple days there can be filled easily. The historic hotel is, well, authentic and historic. If you are looking for modern luxury this is probably not the place for you. If you are...

Historic buildings in a small Gold Rush town. In some ways it is like stepping back in time to the mid 1800s. The room was small and sparsely filled with period type pieces. The floor slanted and the walls were definitely thin, sound travels well. Thin enough that the hotel supplied disposable ear plugs in case the noise became too...

This is a great place to just be in the country & get away from it all but still be within a 15 minute drive to activities. We had ideas of possibly river rafting & mine exploring but it was more important to us to, "not have plans"...if you know what I mean. We ended up spending our Saturday just...

We would highly recommend the Hotel Leger as a great way to top off a trip into the Gold Country. We learned so much about that period of history during our meandering around the area, but staying at the Leger and seeing the community of Mokelumne Hill made it all come to life. From the wide plank flooring to the...

We stayed in the Emily Room (#12). If you want the feel of a Gold Rush experience from 1850, you must stay here. The 2nd floor balcony is accessible the old fashioned way. Through the 6 foot window. Just like John Wayne and Doc Holiday did. You get a perfect view of the sunset from the balcony. The whole decor...
