The suite was nice, very charming. It would have been a nice stay if not for the noise. Located in the heart of downtown, close to restaurants and shopping.

Great little town to stay in. I would stay at this hotel again, but ask for a room not close to the street!

The hotel location is wonderful. Very very quiet. The elevator was pretty cool, 2nd oldest west of the Mississippi.Still worked great. The continental breakfast was really poor, and we so went to a restaurant down the street. Staff was very friendly. Nice lobby having some old original items,log book etc. Room was small but nice. King size bed was really comfy. Enjoyed our stay. ...

Great hotel! It's historical and located right downtown Placerville. Great shops and restaurants within easy walking distance. Loved the old time feel of the lobby and updated rooms. Apple Hill farms a short distance away. Will stay again when in area.

This was one of the high points of our trip. The history was incredible. The original guest register, gold rush memorabilia everywhere, historic elevator, etc. made it so special. The room was comfortable and nicely decorated in period pieces, although very small. It was like staying in a museum, which we loved!

The Cary House Hotel was founded in 1849. The current building is old but the place is kept clean. Rooms are small and the bathroom is very dated. Decor is simple, but the beds are comfortable and the location is great - right downtown Placerville. I enjoyed the stay.

We had to change our hotel to Natomas Inn, in Folsom Ca.

Parking far away, behind the building, a long trip from the parking lot to the room. We were concerned about our safety and the security of the car. No pool, no food, no one at the front desk after 9 pm, front door locked after 9pm. No hot water for the shower in the evening (we were on the 4th floor), however we did have hot water in the morning.
