Volcano, California is one of my favorite little historic mining towns in the Gold Country. Nestled in a little valley about 12 miles off of highway 49, Volcano has escaped the urban sprawl that has marred so many towns along that route; I think of towns like Grass Valley and Sonora among others. I have been coming to this town...

After a year of being closed, the St. George Hotel in Volcano CA is once again open. Did not get to meet the new owner, but met several staff members. Some of which are returnee's from the hotel's previous management. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. We stayed for two nights in the main hotel. Room was clean and very...

The St. George Hotel was a pleasant experience. We had the corner room Hell's Delight, second floor, bath nearby. In its present condition, the hotel will not earn any stars or diamonds but lets say it works. The staff was courteous; one quickly brought our two bags upstairs. No elevator. The bottle of wine upon arrival in the room was...

Boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights in early November because I'd gotten a Living Social deal. Since they weren't too booked we got to stay in one of the rooms outside the main hotel building, with our own bathroom. (I understand many of the hotel rooms have shared bathrooms.) The room itself was quite comfy and sizeable and...

Marvelous historical hotel in a beautiful location. Daffodil Hill, the great Black Chasm Caverns (as a family, we have hit all the public caverns in California) and the absolutely stunning Indian Grinding Rock park and combine it with a quaint little town with yummy pie, good food and nice comfy room and inviting staff. The grounds around the hotel are...

This old hotel that dates from the 1850’s is beautiful. It is well maintained on lovely grounds that evoke a resort atmosphere of a different era. Nestled in this tiny town, the St. George is just a short distance from several days’ worth of interesting adventures. These include caverns with guided tours, the Sutter Gold Mine with a tour down...

After reading some of the previous reviews, I was a little concerned. However, our Wednesday to Friday stay was delightful! When we arrived, we were helped immediately after buzzing for service. (Maybe previous reviewers who complained about not being helped did not notice the buzzer.) We stayed in one of the motel-style rooms in the building behind the main hotel....

We stayed here 2 nights and found it one of the coziest old hotels we've stayed at. Each room is decorated differently with antique and ceiling fan. Definitely a place for baby boomers seeking quiet. If you're a sagger or insist on nonstop entertainment, go elsewhere. Beds are comfortable - and even though bathrooms are shared, no wait and very...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The St. George Hotel is located in Volcano-the “Gem of the Mother Lode”, slightly off the beaten path in the Sierra Nevada Foothills of California. This 3-story building with wooden balconies is the first thing you’ll see upon approaching the entrance to town. The St. George Hotel is listed on the national Register of Historic Places.The main Hotel was built in 1862. It is a 3-story brick building with 14 inch thick walls. The Hotel, built by B.F. George, was named “The St. George” to “thwart the demonic Fire Dragon”. The first two Hotels on the site (Eureka in 1853 and Empire in 1859) were destroyed by fire. The Hotel was known in the late 1800’s as the best Hotel in the County. The Hotel was one of the first 3-story buildings in the State, and Volcano is one of the original Gold Rush towns in the Mother Lode.The main Hotel has 14 guestrooms on 2 floors, two with private baths and the remainder with shared bathrooms. An additional one-story annex building, built in the 1960’s, offers 6 rooms with private bathrooms and televisions. Want to bring your dog? No problem. We have one room in the annex which we allow your pet to stay with you for an additional nominal charge. In 2003 the “Garden Cottage” was added and features a private deck, queen size bed, fireplace, double Jacuzzi tub, shower, television and DVD player. At the back side of the property, the Zinfandel Conference Center offers a perfect setting for meetings, gatherings or conferences with its small kitchen, separate queen bedroom and spacious area for seating in the living room and a television.The lovely and magical grounds of the St. George are a joy in every season. They are perfect for outdoor wedding ceremonies, receptions, summer teas and parties. The Daffodils and Tulips in Spring time and the grand trees and flowering bushes in summer provide privacy and shade and offer beautiful outdoor sitting areas throughout the gardens for reading, meditating, or reflecting on simpler times. ... more   less
