"This historic hotel has been tastefully and authentically restored. It's charming! The Restaurant is simply excellent, and the bar is a kick. If you overlook the comfortable modern mattresses and sparkling, well-appointed bathrooms, the whole place would serve as an excellent movie set portraying California's illustrious Gold Rush."

"We spent two days in Jamestown and also visited the nearby Columbia town as well as the railway station museum. I had surprised my husband with a stay at The National Hotel for his birthday. We were both very happy with the hotel. It is small which we totally loved and the room was clean. A clean and spacious bathroom."

"The National Hotel is one of our favorites. Excellence always!!"

"In a region that abounds with history, the National Hotel stands very tall in reminding you of California's heritage."

"This hotel was built in 1859! What a fun step back in time! Our room was next to the front porch balcony where we romantically sipped wonderful wine before a culinary delight of a dinner! The staff was very friendly! Great stay! We would return!"

"My husband and I met friends in Jamestown, CA as our destination last weekend and what a wonderful, relaxing weekend we enjoyed. The historic National Hotel has a great staff who are warm and friendly, and very ready to be of help in any way they can."
