The location was very good.
It was a very old building. so the amenities were limited but comfortable. The elevator was tiny but luckily worked.

They had king size beds which were very comfortable.

The bed was very comfortable.
The single pane window facing the main street of downtown right across the street from a very roudy bar. We could hear everything outside loud and clear until the bar closed at 2:00 am! There was also a cold draft from the same window. Pretty miserable

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.

I like the character of the building & the hospitality.
Bed spreads & pillows a little worn out. Stayed at the front of the building & could hear loud drunk people at the bar across the street all night till 1:30am.

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

Very nice staff.
Continental breakfast was poor.

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. more

Liked the feeling. It's an old, historical hotel which has updated rooms, but the rest of the hotel has been kept pretty much original, which was great.

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.

The incredible history and artifacts.

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 hotel is very historic and the location is great.

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.

Great downtown location.
I did not like the inconvenience of parking, etc.

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.
