reservation buttonServing Gold Country since the early 1850's, the Ione Hotel is an icon of the wild days of the Gold Rush of 1849. The hotel was built to house miners and serve as a stagecoach depot for supplies and everyday commerce. Founded before the gold rush, Ione is a town rich with history.

In 1910, following a fire, the hotel was reconstructed as a single block and brick structure and named the Golden Star of Ione. It served as a hotel, restaurant and saloon until 1988 when another fire destroyed the building. After a year and a half of extensive renovations, including a beautiful mahogany staircase and many beautiful mahogany accents, the hotel is once again serving guests.

We invite you to step back in time to experience the charm and serenity of the early 1900's. You can almost feel the hustling and bustling excitement of the gold rush days! Sit on our balconies and imagine you hear the clop, clop, clop of a horse's hooves as they travel down Main Street. And, perhaps, the shout of a miner who just struck it rich! Whatever your imaginations, you'll find your stay at the Ione Hotel luxurious and comfortable.
