Was not the worst hotel we have stayed. But not the almost best. Room was cold and the heater was so loud you could not sleep through the noise. I would not sit on the chair in the room. It had a dirty spot that look like someone did not make it to the bathroom. Horrible. We piled the spread...

I loved the check in with the little guy telling me things (I am not posting his name intentionally, but he gave me a paper with his name on it so I would not forget). That was totally awesome. The room was a bit dated, but had a refrigerator, Microwave and a good bed. I arrived mid week so it...

Stayed here while skiing at Dodge Ridge. Good value, clean and run by a nice family. Nice small downtown area and close to the train park (i.e. good for kids). I agree with the positive reviews of previous reviewers.

OMG!! I have over 30 bed bug bites after a night in this motel and I'm horrified. I have stayed at hundreds of hotels and I've never been bit by a bug - I can now say this is a first. There were no rooms anywhere near by, it's getting late, so against my better judgment hubby and I booked...

I and the staff at the hotel want to apologize that this happened. We have already processed your refund as discussed. We hope the rest of your trip in Jamestown was wonderful. Unfortunately, bed bugs can happen at even the nicest hotel and must be brought in by another guest to occur. The weekend of your stay was the local...

Surprised when we arrived and entered the room as we had expected less! Room was clean and tidy and an added bonus we hadn't expected was the spa bath / Hot tub which we didn't use as you have to book this option in advance.

This is a nice, fairly reasonably priced motel. The room had a microwave and refrigerator. It was clean and the beds comfortable. There's a pool that one can do short laps in. If you stay here while visiting Yosemite, it takes about one hour and three-quarters one way. The motel is right off Main Street, close to shops and restaurants....

On a recent road trip we stayed at the Jamestown Railtown Motel. It was a nice motel for a traveler. The room and grounds was nice and clean. There is a pool. There is not a coffee maker in the room but you can walk down to the office and get a cup of coffee. The room rate was reasonable...

What a rip off. We were charges $110 for a room that was not worth $50. Their Web site advertises $65. But the tourist info lady called for us and they stuck us. We should have backed out when the woman showed us the room and said don't run air on high it works best on low. Well it didnt....

Stayed in Jamestown to allow us to get a camp pitch early in Yosemite the next day. One of the cheaper options in delightful Jamestown. Lacks the character of some of the older hotels but the room was large & clean with a jacuzzi in the corner. Small but welcome outdoor pool. Easy walk to the Main Street of this...
