Beautifully restored historic hotel in the heart of California's Gold Country with a regionally acclaimed restaurant and full bar. Amador City retains the authentic feel of the late 19th century, but is just minutes from more than 30 wineries, golf, fishing, antique stores and much more.

The breakfast was so good, french toast with an incredible bread.

Perfect Stay in Amador County

I loved everything about this inn. Room 1 was perfect for enjoying our morning coffee out on the balcony. It was terrific to enjoy a cocktail in the quaint historic bar after a day of sightseeing and wine tasting. Plus, the simple, yet delicious, breakfast in the restaurant dining room was a bonus. This inn offers the best of a bed and breakfast & a hotel. There are the personal touches of a B & B, however you don't feel like you are confined to someone's residence. There are also aspects of a public hotel space such as a bar and restaurant where locals and non-guests can enjoy.

Crashing the bartender's 75th birthday party

4.0 on November 26, 2014

Our romantic getaway to gold country coincided with the 75th birthday party of the St. George bartender. Volcano, an otherwise quiet sleeper town, lit up as everyone gathered to celebrate. We joined the festivities, which only contributed to our already wonderful experience. I highly recommendable choosing a stay St. George in Volcano!

Great experience

Enjoyed everything about our stay at this B&B. The service was superb. Peter went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. The hotel itself was beautiful, the rooms were comfortable and the breakfast was great! Amador City is a quaint town that has everything to offer for a weekend away.

Treated like Royalty at the Imperial Hotel

Truly enjoyed the stay at the Historic Hotel in Amador City. The staff were very accommodating and the two breakfast that we enjoyed a the hotel were absolutely delicious! The rooms are large and well-appointed. I enjoyed sitting on the balcony and meditating before starting my day. We were able to get out to Lodi to go sky-diving and the hotel is centrally located to enjoy wine-tasting at vineyards in the vicinity of Plymouth and tasting rooms in Sutter Creek!. Also enjoyed a side trip to the Black Chasm Cavern. Perfect get away!

Great place to stay in gold country.

Wonderful hideaway, cozy and charming but not fancy, in California gold country and most reasonably priced Bed and Breakfast in the area. Easily accessible from Sacramento. Near wineries as well as historic and natural attractions and easy drive to Kirkwood ski area. Dinner was exceptional and breakfasts definitely met our expectations...including dietary needs/restrictions. Owner Mary Ann and bartender/manager Pete go out of their way to provide outstanding service. All staff are very friendly, accommodating, and efficient. Room #4 is our favorite and bed has recently been upgraded and was VERY comfortable.

Wonderful, relaxing oasis

We enjoyed a wonderful getaway. The hotel could use a little updating. Just some painting of railings, etc. and now days beds are getting a lot of attention, however the beds showed wear as there were humps. The linens were very nice however and we did have towel warmers with bath towels. The breakfast that was included was delicious however the portions were small. Very cozy.

Nice bed and breakfast , but eat elsewhere

3.4 on October 16, 2014

We stayed last weekend in the only room that had 2 beds. However, the staff had not made the room with 2 beds, so we had to wait while the room was remade. Nice room, no TV, and clean bathroom with good shower. The dining room fare was touted as being great, but was only OK. It was a little pricey for the quality and not worth the price. I'd eat somewhere else next time. Staff was nice and welcoming.

Lots of Character

Quaint spot right on the small main street of Amador City. Great people and service. The rooms with the balcony look right down the main street although you get a tad bit of road noise in the morning, but not so bad. Clean and full of character. We ended up staying an extra night.

Great and unique place to stay.

Truly enjoyed staying here for our most recent trip to Foot Hills wine country. Our room was nice, but not near as nice as others we saw that were already reserved. One has to remember it's a 1870's building. Wonderful food. Lovely patio and bar. Would definitely stay there again.
