We stayed here once and enjoyed it, and so returned - but this time it was a nightmare. Read the comments on Yelp. Hotel management here has apparently recently changed, and they have chronic problems honoring confirmed reservations. Not only do I question their professionalism and competence in running a hotel, but there are questions of discrimination involved in what they did to us. We arrived with another couple early in the afternoon with a confirmed reservation. They let us into our assigned rooms so we could change for a party, even though the maid had not finished cleaning them, which we really appreciated. We left our luggage in the rooms, and when we returned after the party and dinner, at around midnight, they told us that we didnt have rooms at the hotel. There was a wedding party at the hotel and they claimed the wedding had reserved all the rooms - which was NOT the case when they gave us these two rooms in the first place. They had removed our luggage from the rooms and unceremoniously dumped it at our feet when we came back. We discovered that some of our things were missing, and they had to hunt around to find the rest of it. It happens that hotels overbook and that mistakes are made (although it appears there is a chronic reservation problem at this hotel). However, you would think when we returned late that night that they would have been concerned and apologetic and wanting to make amends and make sure they did whatever they could do for us. NOT! Not only were they rude and the manager indifferent, but they made things as difficult as possible. THAT is what makes this whole incident unforgiveable. The hotel staff was more concerned about how difficult this was for them than about the difficulty they were causing us. There are innkeeper laws that protect guests from being thrown out like we were. And if you read Yelp you will see this has happened to others as well. There are also laws against discrimination. My suggestion is to avoid this place in the first place. Yes, it is cute and historic - but its not worth the risks. Rooms are in short supply in this area during the summer, and you would be better off making sure you really have a room at a hotel that honors your reservation, than to find when you get to the Hotel Leger that they have lost your reservation - or worse, dumped your things out on the street.

Ive stayed at the Hotel Leger 4 times in the past year. This my all-time favorite hotel, ever! The staff makes you feel like an old friend and are very courteous. The hotel has a restaurant and saloon for lunch, supper, and night caps. A great breakfast can be had at Franks, just down the highway less than a minutes drive. Keep in mind that this is not a Hilton or even a Motel 6. This is a gold rush era hotel, filled with antiques, and is family owned and run. It is a very old building, and their are likely to be things wrong. You may have to walk down the halway to a shared bathroom. You probably wont have more than one outlet. There wont be a hair dryer. The floors will creak and youll be able to hear, or even feel, the music in the saloon. You may experience a ghostly encounter, though I have not. If you come here with an attitude toward having an adventure, you certainly will, but if you are expecting the Hilton, you will be sorely dissapointed. I stay here every time I am in the area, and have brought friends and family here to show them this "working museum." There are some rooms that have two or 3 full-size beds, and have their own bathroom. Some of the rooms share a bathroom with up to 2 other rooms. There are earplugs available, and I suggest you use them, because there is little sound insulation. The food is Ok, with nothing to write home about, but good enough, and right there so you dont have to go anywhere. The drinks are good and there is a good selection of beer and liquor for mixed drinks and shots. The beds are comfortable, but mostly full-sized, with the exception of the queen bed down in the courtyard suite, which also has its own kitchen and living room. The oranges are great though hard to get to. The courtyard is lovely. My favorite thing is to sit on the balcony and watch the sun set while talking to family and/or friends. This is not a place to just stop and rest. It is a destination of itself, and an adventure every time. If you think you can enjoy it for what it is, then I urge you to stop by.
Came up for a ghost hunting weekend special and loved it. Pleasant and informative staff issued us out ghost hunting kit at check in. Throughout the weekend we enjoyed amazing dinners, skulking around the grounds looking for ghosts, and chatting with staff about their experiences. Keep in mind, its a historic hotel with all the pros and cons that brings - the rooms were full of antique furniture, but the walls were thin enough that the staff provides disposable earlplugs in the same way others provide chocolates (on the pillows). Also, Mok Hill is a very small town and if youre there in the off-season there isnt going to be a lot going on. But if youre looking for a quality stay in a historic hotel, it cant be beat.

Hotel Leger is full of cool, funky charm. It is a creaky, sagging OLD building with spacious, beautiful rooms, period antique furniture, private baths in most of the rooms, a good restaurant, beautiful gardens, and the possibility of ghosts. The staff is very accomodating and friendly but not polished. However, taking a shower required a bit of dancing as the water went from scalding to lukewarm minute by minute and the thin walls let in all the sounds of our neighboring guests - the conversations, partying, and, yes, passionate moans. So, go for the ambience but expect inconveniences and use the provided ear plugs if sleep is important to you.

The charm and history of the Legers structure is only exceeded by the attentive service and friendliness of its owners and staff. The nighttime music venue is by far the best within a 100 mile radius. If you love to dance, or just like watching people who do, Alias is the band for you. Every song will drag your tired body to the dance floor for the most fun and exercise youve had in years. Charm, warmth, talent, attentive service and historical relevance makes the Leger my favorite destination. It is worth the drive at any price!!
Exactly what we were expecting when we went her for a Ghostly getaway. We went during the off season so we one of two couples in the entire place. They gave us the ghost hunting kit & told us we were free to wander the grounds. We had a lot of fun exploring & looking for evidence of ghosts. The small restaurant inside the hotel was very tasty & the staff welcoming. We chatted one night with the cook & he told us some of his spooky experiences. We will definitely be back for another night
Our kids took us here for our anniversary. The service was good and the waitress was very nice. However I dont understand how this restaurant got so many stars for the food. My salmon was too salty and the rice was hard the spinach was awful. Out of the 8 adult orders only one person was not dissatisfied. Most everyone in our party took most of their dinner home to the dog. How disappointing!
