Fodor's Review

This 1855 stone hotel, whose register has seen the signatures of Mark Twain and the bandit Black Bart, figured in a Bret Harte short story. Accommodations are in the hotel and a modern motel-style addition. The older rooms are furnished with antiques, many of them large and handcarved. The hotel has a convivial old-time restaurant ($$) and dark saloon, with a multitude of mounted animal heads.
