My wife and I stayed here several years ago and had a fantastic time. However if you insist on 21 century features you may want to go somewhere else. Like they advertise this is a historic hotel just like it was in the old west. No TV, computers, internet, or A/C. Oh did I mention the place is most definitely haunted. So if you are still interested in staying here I guarantee you will have a blast. It's like stepping back into the old west during the gold rush and if your lucky you may even be able to communicate with someone from that time period. Lol We did!!
We love it. Do not expect wifi or room service or phones, so stay away!!! More room for me. We love this place and have celebrated our anniversary every year except 20sucky. The place is gorgeous and has an awesome vibe. We plan to be back in the
Rude staff! Had to argue with everything I said when I was quoted an early check in and even the price of the room. Small, dirty and loud. Many other places to choose from that are better. I won’t go back there.
We spent one night here in room 12. Its on the second floor over looking C street.Don't bring your 21st century standards. Its historic. No AC, no in room phones, no TV, no fire alarm. yes, fire sprinkles. Our second floor room was entered from B street level down a narrow hall. Lots of rooms down the hall with transoms. Expect noise from adjoining room. Each room is different. Ours had 20 foot high celiing, a claw foot bath IN THE BEDROOM, a sink IN THE BEDROOM. The toilet was in a WC in the room. Nice drapes, good bed. Ceiling fan. A real expereince. (Visit the Corner Bar across B street
First of all I never believed in ghosts ( however i do quite a bit more now). We were staying in Reno. Hotel booked and paid for for three nights.Decided to check out this historic virginia city for a few hours. We got there , so amazing and historic, we decided to forfeit the money we had already paid to Eldorado in Reno and hunker down there. The food options were all overwhelming. One Saloon suggested we stay at silver queen. So we walked here . For us the hotel attendant/ bar tender was less than pleasant. None the less she did her job which is a rare occurrence anymore. I think we were in room 9 . We dropped the few things we needed to as our luggage was still in Reno and hit the historic streets. Had sooo much fun at saloons and casino I cant quite remember it all. LOL. Probably got back to room at 11 pm but the free drinks were flowing and I cant say for sure. We were woken at literally 3 am by some really noisy neighbors . Now ... I believe when your right , your right, I kept yelling at them to be quite . They really didnt. They never acknowledged me yelling at them nor did they shut up I warned them Ill be up in a few hours and you'll be sorry. Still they carried on laughing and talking. Next morning 6am I figured Id give them a taste of their medicine and talked very loud over and over. I was ready to engage these rude people next door but got nothing. Clearly walls are thin so they HAD to have heard me but they did not respond to my vengeful behavior. Believe me I was not silent. I figure... What are they gonna do kick me out. So I was LOUD. After coming home and seeing these orbs in our pictures as well as some odd events in our home now ( doors open in middle of the night) I wonder if those were really guests arriving there at 3 am. For the most part the city is shut down early. And EVERYONE we ran into was so pleasant Except these noise makers at 3 am. Im an experienced drinker, I cant believe I hallucinated these party animals in the room next to us. But I was definitely wide awake when I was telling them to " be quite some of us will be up at 6am and you will know that" I cant recall their actual words. they were noisy but I recall no real words. Just loud mumble which is almost opposite, clearly in room next to us THATS pretty weird. The bed hurt my back and I really slept very lightly but Id still do it again. The city is amazing and hotel is really interesting. Finally This was July . Both of us became really cold and wrapped our self tight in blanket. At the time we did not know there was no air conditioning. But we were freezing in Nevada July 4???? again we travel a lot and have had many noisy neighbors. Ive never been compelled to yell at them only a couple times Ill call front desk. But to think they never responded. at 3 am or 6 ODD…
First off, you can't find the Silver Queen online anywhere other than their web page, so booking a room, you must actually call them directly to book. Checking in was a little slow, the hotel lobby is the bar and not only is the staff working the hotel check ins, they are also serving those at the bar as well, so they might be a little busy. The staff was great, despite my original booking being booked on the wrong dates and finding out the hotel was sold out for my night, they still managed to get me in due to a cancellation and I was awarded one of the fun rooms (Rm 11). Both the ladies that contacted me from the hotel were wonderful and really apologetic. There is a parking lot, that has it's own backstory to it which is pretty interesting, but just make sure it's open during a holiday weekend as the one I was there on had it closed due to the July 4th festivities and I did have to park a few blocks away just to even check in. The hotel is upstairs from C Street, or if you go in the back way, you are on the first floor if you don't want to use the stairs, this would be the street to park on. Room 11 was old and rustic and really gave me that old time vibe which is what I had wanted. There are no windows in this room (or several others) . The bathtub is in the room itself and not in a separate bathroom at all, unlike the toilet which does have it's own little room with a door. The sink and such is also in the room with the bed. No AC, but it does have a very large fan way up on the very tall ceiling. The room isn't suited for everyone though, you have to know that you are going for the ambiance and not as a standard hotel room you'd fine at a chain. Even the furniture is rickety and old and I did think the chair was about to fall apart, again, just adds to the experience. There is soap and the bathtub has a large bottle of bubble bath, neither of which I used during my night stay. Again it's a fun place and makes you feel like you're back in the 1800's and pretty central on C Street. I would book this again next time I ride back through town...…
Pastor was an interesting person and dressed to fit the venue in tails & a pistol. He should put a little more enthusiasm in his voice as he reads the ceremony in a monotone. Also they played 'pomp & circumstance', a graduation song, instead of the wedding march.
I stayed at the Silver Queen Hotel in historic Virginia City Nevada. The hotel is very haunted as evidenced by a video monitor mounted above the historic bar and one can see first hand 'energy orbs flying around the chapel room in the hotel. The hotel built in the 1870s is mostly original and the rooms are vintage, not very modernized. Do not expect a modern hotel, of course they have modern bathrooms and lighting, but one does get the 'feel' of staying in an historic hotel with very nice and helpful staff.
although the building is historic, our room was all dilapidated mismatched 80s furniture. we often stay in historic/vintage places and do not expect or enjoy the Ritz-Carlton, but this place is run down and depressing. the outside was 1876 and the inside was more sketchy 1982 YMCA men's residence. this place is so bad, when we were in another bar and the bartender heard where we were staying, she grimaced and gave us free pity beers! not very clean, although not filthy or anything and the mattresses and box springs had those bed bug-free covers (smart, all hotels should use those). the staff that we saw very briefly at check-in was SUPER nice and accommodating. we didn't experience much in the way of paranormal activity, although our room windows' proximity to the fire escape did make us a little worried for security as other guests used it to come and go. the bar downstairs looks pretty charming, but closed early the night we were there. nice people, terrific location, but this hotel was pretty bad overall. …
Stopped in this historic hotel for a drink and to see the Silver Queen, made of all silver dollars. The owner was bar tending and gave us great service and stories of the hotel and area. Virginia City seems to be going downhill in the past decade with less casino options and restaurants but the SQ was a pleasant stop. Beer was cold, priced right and the owner made it interesting. Can’t review the rooms since we didn’t stay there.
