Very basic motel and conveniently located if you're exploring the Columbia river area or need a place to stay for one night before heading to Yosemite. The room we stayed in was very dated and basic. Wifi is complimentary with reservation. AC worked but was loud. Sheets, towels are flimsy. The room was clean enough although the carpet felt dingy...

My mom, sister & myself travel to Jamestown from Bakersfield on a regular basis as we enjoy the friendly people, casino, shopping & history. This is our first time at Miner's Motel! It was clean, comfortable & the owners Nancy & her husband were more than hospitable!! We would definitely stay there again!!

Hard to believe that in America today we have people treating the disabled so poorly. I paid in advance on priceline and was harassed by the staff the entire time. They repeatedly phoned my room which was clean (I took photos) when I left. They actually called at 10:30 am on my second day of stay to tell me, despite...

Thank you for choosing Miner's Motel Jamestown for your recent stay. We hope you enjoyed your days with us when you accepted our pet/smoking room for several days. When you checked in we explained we only had one room and that you would need to let us know day by day. Unfortunately, someone booked the room before you notified us...

I was looking for a motel to spend one night on the way through Sonora. The Miner's Motel looked older but acceptable as it was right along Highway 108. I booked two rooms for my party. When I arrived, the gentleman at the desk was friendly and I was able to check in early. When we got to our rooms,...

Based on TripAdvisor reviews we stayed at Miner's for two nights. We like staying at small independents because you generally get better treatment than chain hotels without the price of luxury hotels. Miner's was a very nice place. Pleasant and responsive owners, clean nice size rooms, nice pool. Yea, there is no breakfast but this place is still a bargain...

We were passing through the area and stopped here for one night. The manager was friendly and helpful. The facility was older but well maintained, it was clean and comfortable. The pool and grounds were spotless. The value was a bargain. Would return again.

Got stuck here by GM roadside assistance after a minor car accident in Yosemite. After a 6-hour ordeal with insurance and towing, the owner greeted me by yelling "It's the wrong number!" and waving some papers in my face. Insisted GM fax him a duplicate of the form they'd already sent him, and in the middle of the night. After...

Mid century, but not modern. Towels were skinny, beds were awful. No breakfast. Pet friendly. Pool was clean. Outside property was rundown & not well taken care of. Lobby smelled like they were cooking shoe leather in it. Staff was ok. Convenient to Gold country towns.

8 of us stayed one night. Older hotel but clean and more than adequate. Park in front of your room. Outside access to all rooms. No elevator must walks steps to second level. Staff was helpful and courteous. Restaurants within driving distance.
