Boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights in early November because I'd gotten a Living Social deal. Since they weren't too booked we got to stay in one of the rooms outside the main hotel building, with our own bathroom. (I understand many of the hotel rooms have shared bathrooms.) The room itself was quite comfy and sizeable and...

Marvelous historical hotel in a beautiful location. Daffodil Hill, the great Black Chasm Caverns (as a family, we have hit all the public caverns in California) and the absolutely stunning Indian Grinding Rock park and combine it with a quaint little town with yummy pie, good food and nice comfy room and inviting staff. The grounds around the hotel are...

My Sister and I stayed at the St. George Hotel 7-31 to 8-2-11 From the moment we walked through the front door until the time we walked back out, we felt like we were treated like family!

A group of 4 went to this wonderful hotel through a deal from Living Social. What a wonderful place to stay. It is located in the tiny town of Volcano and is a real piece of history! The food is great, the staff was very friendly and accomodating and the grounds were beautiful. It is a perfect spot to travel...

This old hotel that dates from the 1850’s is beautiful. It is well maintained on lovely grounds that evoke a resort atmosphere of a different era. Nestled in this tiny town, the St. George is just a short distance from several days’ worth of interesting adventures. These include caverns with guided tours, the Sutter Gold Mine with a tour down...

After reading some of the previous reviews, I was a little concerned. However, our Wednesday to Friday stay was delightful! When we arrived, we were helped immediately after buzzing for service. (Maybe previous reviewers who complained about not being helped did not notice the buzzer.) We stayed in one of the motel-style rooms in the building behind the main hotel....

We stayed here 2 nights and found it one of the coziest old hotels we've stayed at. Each room is decorated differently with antique and ceiling fan. Definitely a place for baby boomers seeking quiet. If you're a sagger or insist on nonstop entertainment, go elsewhere. Beds are comfortable - and even though bathrooms are shared, no wait and very...

St. George hotel has obviously been coasting on the reputation of it's past owners. The grounds are pleasant and the porches and views are lovely. But the rooms are overrated and overpriced for what you get. I stayed in the Annex section of the hotel. A row of rooms that are not connected to the historic hotel. We greeted by...

We were pleasantly surprised with the entire two nights we stay at the hotel. I am not sure why there were one or two negative reviews. The other reviews I read were positive and that was the experience we had. Our room was clean and the bathroom was too. We were greeted by a friendly staff person when we arrived....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The St. George Hotel is located in Volcano-the “Gem of the Mother Lode”, slightly off the beaten path in the Sierra Nevada Foothills of California. This 3-story building with wooden balconies is the first thing you’ll see upon approaching the entrance to town. The St. George Hotel is listed on the national Register of Historic Places.The main Hotel was built in 1862. It is a 3-story brick building with 14 inch thick walls. The Hotel, built by B.F. George, was named “The St. George” to “thwart the demonic Fire Dragon”. The first two Hotels on the site (Eureka in 1853 and Empire in 1859) were destroyed by fire. The Hotel was known in the late 1800’s as the best Hotel in the County. The Hotel was one of the first 3-story buildings in the State, and Volcano is one of the original Gold Rush towns in the Mother Lode.The main Hotel has 14 guestrooms on 2 floors, two with private baths and the remainder with shared bathrooms. An additional one-story annex building, built in the 1960’s, offers 6 rooms with private bathrooms and televisions. Want to bring your dog? No problem. We have one room in the annex which we allow your pet to stay with you for an additional nominal charge. In 2003 the “Garden Cottage” was added and features a private deck, queen size bed, fireplace, double Jacuzzi tub, shower, television and DVD player. At the back side of the property, the Zinfandel Conference Center offers a perfect setting for meetings, gatherings or conferences with its small kitchen, separate queen bedroom and spacious area for seating in the living room and a television.The lovely and magical grounds of the St. George are a joy in every season. They are perfect for outdoor wedding ceremonies, receptions, summer teas and parties. The Daffodils and Tulips in Spring time and the grand trees and flowering bushes in summer provide privacy and shade and offer beautiful outdoor sitting areas throughout the gardens for reading, meditating, or reflecting on simpler times. ... more   less
