We had a king suite on the 4th floor if this historic hotel. Remember this is an OLD hotel with antiques and many original structural and flooring. Another words squeaky floors and thin walls. The room was spacious with a sitting area with led tv and counter with faucet, microwave small refridgerator and small Coffee maker. The bedroom was spacious...

The lobby is very cool, filled with antiques.! The young man at the desk was very helpful and willing to go above and beyond. Riding the tiny elevator was an experience. Not scary in any way, just tiny, old and different. I just had to think before I did things. Swinging door to open then a sliding cage door to...

Very disappointed. Location is excellent, however room descriptions misleading and terrible maid service. We booked & prepaid "2 bedroom" suite, however you walked right into one bed that was previously a sitting area. There was a one separate bedroom, but there was no area to all sit together. The worst was we stayed 4 nights and we did not get...

My wife and I got there late (after 10:00) and the desk guy was very pleasant. The lobby had a water feature so I kept looking for the leaking pipes. We had a room on the 4th floor and we took the old elevator up. It had a metal gate like in the movies (or the 40's). When we walked...

We booked this because of location and the historic aspect and because of this we were pleased. I wanted my son to experience some of the history of California and this hotel definitely added to his experience as compared to staying in a bland chain hotel off the highway. We had a room in the front facing the street and...

The desk clerk was not very professional, when we changed rooms he walked up the stairs and hid behind a wall and jumped out and said Boo trying to frighten my girlfriend. He gave me a regular room instead of the suite I booked. When we inquired about a refrigerator not being in the room, he said he made a...

Great accommodations at the Historic Cary House...and a superb location if you are planning to visit downtown Placerville! Restaurants are within a short walking distance. Wine tasting at The Wine Smith within 150 feet...great wine and great owner and host, Zacharie! The best part of all was the Hotel host...Addison! He was helpful, courteous and fun!

160 year old establishment, has names for each room. Different theme for each floor. Has an elevator built in the 1920's. Our room on the second floor had a microwave, small refrigerator, and small sink and hot plates, perfect for making simple meals. Had a separate bedroom with very comfy king bed. Booked with Trip Advisor because it was cheaper...
