The hotel is historic, the breakfast is amazing and the staff is awesome!! Right down from some great bars and restaurants... Black Oak Casino is close as well as James Town and Columbia. Murphy's is a close drive if you are into great wines!!

We stayed at the Gunn House after a day of snow skiing. I had stayed at the hotel as a young boy about 50 years prior. I made our reservations over the phone about 15 minutes prior to our arrival. The call taker at the Gunn House was very friendly and easy to speak with. On arrival we met Tracy...

Cutest little hotel I've stayed at in years. Loved the sitting porch and the breakfast room. Everything had a personal touch and the staff was great. I will hands down stay there again next time I'm in the area.

My husband and I were on our way back to the valley from a company dinner further up the hill and we decided to stay at this historic hotel for the night. The service upon arrival was very friendly and accommodating. The room was very clean and comfortable.... a little small, but it contained everything we needed. The only thing...

We were coming late, get a couple of calls from managers to confirm we were coming. Main office was already closed, but managers (or owners?) still got us in without much waiting. Room decor is nice and stylish, and adds to the "old" hotel look. Was nice to return there after roaming around.

This facility is a relic of the gold rush era and maintains that ambience. The breakfast is above average. A bit pricy but you are staying a historic facility. Great curbside appeal the front porch is a good spot to watch main street activity.

This hotel isnt for everybody, its on multi levels and has a quirky layout and decor. We had a family room at the rear overlooking the pool. We had a nice big bathroom but the room could do with more clothes storage. The town is really lovely with a few nice places to eat - 90 mins to Yosemite. We...

What a charming hotel. The decor helps with feeling like you stepped back in time. The door was very old. It was a half door with glass on top and a little curtain over the glass. We were on the second floor and stayed in the room known as the surgical suite and I believe a morgue.

Thank you for staying with us. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Actually, Dr. Gunn and his family lived here, so there was no morgue.. sounds fascinating, but alas this was his families home
