Stayed at the Fallon for a wedding at the Columbia State Park campgrounds. While I do love camping, the Fallon Hotel was a wonderful alternative for accommodations and so convenient. With historical charm, eccentric history and tales of ghost activity, this was such a fun visit. The rooms are exceptionally clean and charming - try to get one of the...

I stayed here for 4 nights in November of 2016. Not many others were there. Is it because they don't know about it? Maybe they have to have all the amenities? I don't know. But for one or two people with off season rates like this, I couldn't say no! Sure, it doesn't have a TV (WiFi is available) or...

Thank you so much for your fabulous review of the Fallon Hotel! It is definitely a unique experience staying in an 1800s hotel and you're right; you can't beat the downtown location. We hope to see you in the park again soon!

We stayed for 2 nights at the Fallon Hotel, in one of the front rooms with a balcony overlooking Parrott's Ferry Road. This restored hotel has an authentic feel to it. The rooms have just toilet and wash basin in them. The shower is down the hall and is communal, just the way it would have been during the Gold...

We stepped back in time for 2 nights in Columbia and the Fallon Hotel was a great place to stay. Great period room with the addition of efficient (and quiet) aircon. Spent an evening at the theatre watching 'The State Fair' and lost the kids for hours while they panned for gold.

We spent 2 nights and had 3 rooms, a beautiful hotel. We had rooms 1 , 2, and 15. Arrived late and met a warm friendly woman, Kathy. Of course you hear or read people stating it is haunted, however, there is absolutely nothing frightening about this beautiful hotel. There are a few games on a shelf in the main...

My husband reserved a room here for a two day stay. Upon entering the hotel to the front desk, we were greeted by a gentleman dresses in 1800's attire. He was polite and truly welcoming. He went out of his way to educate us on the area, the times of events and the locations of "must see" attractions. THEN we...

Best play I have ever, EVER seen! I cannot offer enough kudos to to the cast in this magnificent, yet tragic life of one of America's greats. So wonderfully done, the show was absolutely perfect...the acting, the music, the historic setting in this wonderful old mining town.

We are so happy to have Sierra Repertory Theater located in the same building as the hotel. Convenient for guests to see a show and walk upstairs to their room! They put on fantastic shows throughout the year. We hope you'll visit again soon!

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Fallon Hotel. Since the State Park service has taken it over, the service is excellent. They just replaced the mattresses and pillows, so the bed was very comfortable. My wife and I saw some very strange goings on during the night, it was very exciting! We stayed in room six and during...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Columbia City Hotel and its sister, the Fallon Hotel, are authentically restored 19th-century country inns. All rooms are elegantly appointed with Victorian antiques, custom crafted wall coverings, and beautiful lithographs. Each hotel has a sitting parlour where you can peruse books and magazines, or participate in one of many board games. While both hotels stay as faithful to 19th century decor as possible, modern conveniences such as indoor plumbing, heating. And air conditioning have been added. Each room has a half bath, and a shower basket and robes are provided for the trip down the hall to the shared shower rooms. There are also three charming cottages- a one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom- each with a full kitchen, fenced yard and DVD player. ... more   less
