Brett checked me into my room, and was super friendly and informative. I would highly recommend Cary House to all my friends and family. The room was clean, the bed was nearly made with fresh clean sheets, and was super comfortable.

First of all this hotel is beautiful. Gorgeous historic brick building. The bed was more comfortable than the one I sleep on at home! The employees were very helpful, especially Brett who was always so sweet and willing to make sure I was enjoying my stay! Will be staying here again!

It was like traveling back in time. Beautiful lobby, awesome decor and great customer service. The room was great in every way! We had gotten lucky and got upgraded to a master suite with a street view. I was ecstatic! Overall we had a wonderful time and will cherish these memories for years to come.

We love Placerville, and always enjoy staying at the Cary House. The hotel is legitimately historic, and as such is fun and funky. The elevator alone is worth the price of admission. Rooms are unique, and beds are comfortable. The only downside is that there is no breakfast.

SO handy to some great clothing stores and some surprisingly good restaurants, this is one of our favorite weekend getaway spots. It is just across the street from the Liar's Bench for a little night cap, so is handy to calm any ghost fearing nerves you might have!
