Stayed here for one night in the "motel" portion of this historic property. The motel has peeling wall paper, plastic fake wood paneling, old air conditioners - The beds are inner spring mattresses. This place needs a make-over really bad. The lighting in the room was poor. All compact fluorescent lights. The room was big, but no coffee pot, no...

Thanks for the review. We're never more than we claim. Cowboy rooms are not for everyone. We do have very comfortable rooms with private bathrooms, antique furnishing, and amenities upstairs in our historic hotel building. And, larger rooms with two queens or three doubles, all with private bathrooms and amenities in our motel building. Plus free parking, free Wi-Fi, and...

We just had a blast here! Make sure you accept what it actually is. It's a old historic hotel from 1877. The main area is still original. Hostel type of rooms, small cutely decorated with shared bathrooms. I live for experiences like this so it was fun to stop on a whim when we planned to camp that night. We...

Thanks for the review. Some facts regarding the Historic Inn: Fine dining restaurant stays open until 10pm unless there are no customers; the bar stays open later if there are customers; sixteen rooms upstairs, 6 with bathrooms, air conditioning, TV, etc., 10 rooms are small, clean, cost less but do not have air or TV. We also have a fifteen...

The original hotel building was built in 1877 and the Motel looks like it was probably built in the 1950s. I stayed in the motel section. A room with 2 double beds. No room for more than that. The room was decorated in the 1950s style look but clearly much newer than that. Everything was updated and clean. The beds...

Thanks for the review. We do, in fact, work to keep our hotel in the gold rush era style as much as possible. The rooms upstairs in the historic hotel building are furnished with antiques. Our motel rooms have either two queen beds, or three double beds for larger groups. Hope you come again. Bob Peters, owner.

We had a triple, which was nice, three beds for five of us. Staff extremely friendly. Shower rather annoying, turn it to the correct temp, then it fluctuates for quite awhile before settling into the right temp. The hotel part had shared restrooms, so glad we were in the motel part.

We were looking forward to the old charm of this tiny hotel near Bodie. From the outside and the reception-room it looked exactly like we imagined.
