Review of The National Hotel in Jackson, California

Today I thought I would do a review of one of the hotels I stayed in while I was in Jackson, CA. I find that I make a lot of purchases based on online reviews and recommendations so I thought I've decided to start doing a lot more reviews on here!

A few weekends ago, I stayed at The National Hotel}. Jackson, CA is an extremely small town and this hotel is located at the end of the main street. After spending a night in the big city (San Jose, CA), I was ready to spend some time in a smaller town. I'm not a big fan of traffic and large amounts of people. The hotel was built in 1849 and rebuilt in 1862 after a fire.

Right as I was walked in the front door, I was in awe of the decor; this hotel had the small town charm that I was looking for. Since I visited in October, the whole lobby was decorated with Halloween decor. The lobby had a really nice seating area, with big comfy chairs and a fireplace.

I stayed there on a Sunday night and they offered complimentary cheese and wine in the evening, which was a nice bonus!

All of the rooms come with the following amenities:

100% down comforters and pillows
100% cotton oversized bath sheets
In-room thermostats
Unlimited hot water
iHome docking station/alarm clock
Complimentary wi-fi
Flat screen televisions w/cable TV
Authentic period antiques and fixtures
Marble, granite and glass surfaces
Unlimited local calling
Room service
ADA Compliant

The room was absolutely gorgeous. It had a HUGE bathtub with jets that I took advantage of. The room also included super soft bathrobes which I love because I use a bathrobe instead of a towel at home! 

The toilet was in a separate room (seen in the reflection of the mirror), as the bathroom and bedroom were open to each other. What I loved most about the room was the heated floors (see the pad on the wall in the lower left) in the bathroom area under the tile! Seriously the best thing ever; I want them in my future house!

View out the window. Unfortunately my room did not have a balcony but it was a single queen bedroom.

The thermostat for the room was extremely up-to-date and technical - sorry I'm not better at describing it! Haha

The only complaint that I had was the bed. It was harder than I am used to but I like really, really soft beds. I find it very hard to get a good night's sleep a lot of the time when I'm away from home; I'm a picky sleeper! The pillows and comforter were amazing, soft and fluffy!

The room that I stayed in was 210 and they have pictures of it on their website {here}.

Downstairs there is a restaurant/bar, which I went and had a drink at. I didn't get any pictures of it but they have the menus on their website {here}. The bar waitress wasn't very good; it took a long time to get service and for her to bring me a drink. Oh well. I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel and I would stay there again in a heartbeat if given the opportunity. There is are a lot of wineries in that area and I would love to go back again for a girls' weekend/wine tour!
