Stayed on a Friday night when we couldn't find a reasonably priced room in Grass Valley or Nevada City. We used the outside spa, visited the bowling alley (but didn't use the coupon), enjoyed the travel literature, maps & weather report.

Check-in staff, very helpful.Handed some coupon's for use at property.Room decent sized, bed comfortable.As for my bathroom, standup shower, would've liked more room. Sink has older fixtures but they worked fine.For entertainment "complex" has a bar and bowling alley nearby (short walk).Perfect for easy access to/from Interstate 80. Yes, I'd stay again if rates were comparable to other area properties.
