Great accommodations at the Historic Cary House...and a superb location if you are planning to visit downtown Placerville! Restaurants are within a short walking distance. Wine tasting at The Wine Smith within 150 feet...great wine and great owner and host, Zacharie! The best part of all was the Hotel host...Addison! He was helpful, courteous and fun! He alone would be...

160 year old establishment, has names for each room. Different theme for each floor. Has an elevator built in the 1920's. Our room on the second floor had a microwave, small refrigerator, and small sink and hot plates, perfect for making simple meals. Had a separate bedroom with very comfy king bed. Booked with Trip Advisor because it was cheaper...

Our stay was exceptional. For an historic building, the rooms were clean, welcoming and comfy! The basic amenities were good quality and I wish we had planned to stay longer! The counter person, Josh, was friendly, professional and very accommodating to our needs! Thank you for the unique experience and great staff!

Excellent historic hotel in the middle of downtown. Great Service! Staff was great and very helpful. Room was spacious and very well appointed. The elevator was very historic and made you feel like you were in the 1800's.

It is a great hotel with lots of character!! Very Clean. No complains. Got coffee in the morning. Have a large upstairs balcony that overlooks the main street of Placerville. In good weather that would be great. Easy walk to multiple places to eat. Overall a very good stay.

i would have given a higher rating but the room was either freezing cold or roasting. The hotel is a historical site with all the charm and ambiance. Located on Main Street it is within walking distance of an array of great restaurants and shops. The elevator in the hotel is worth the trip. It defines "old school." The rooms...

My husband and I stayed at the Cary House Hotel a couple of years ago for my birthday while visiting apple hill. I am a hotel snob because of my job so I was nervous to stay in the "oldest hotel in placerville". Well to my surprise it was beautiful and had so much charm. The staff was very polite...
