We were in town for a family wedding. Our stay was perfect in every way. We enjoyed the breakfast each morning & the hot tub every night. We were conveniently located to the downtown area where all our events were held. We will definitely be back in the future.

Hotel selection pre-booked by Wedding hosts. At check-in, front reception clerk was not welcoming and rude. Asks where Golf Course is, says 3 in the area. A simple task to check records but we had to go back to car and search for invite. Carpet super filthy, on sock feet to quickly change attire from travel to wedding formalities. In... More

Good value for your dollar for an overnight stay. Staff was friendly. A bit noisy so close to the freeway though. Breakfast was standard continental fare... would like to see more protein added. Would stay overnight again.

We were driving up Hwy 49 and heading North to Grass Valley and Nevada City so this was a perfect place to stop for the night. This is an older property, but very well maintained. Flowers on the grounds were beautiful. We had a great nights rest to continue on our trip. Breakfast is average, but satisfying. Very friendly and... More

Arrived for a one night stay late in the evening. Desk clerk was smiling and friendly. Each bed had 4 half size pillows, which were great for people who like to double up their pillows. A coffee pot was in the room with the usual regular/decaf grounds. I would prefer to have 2 regular coffees, but 1 pot is enough... More

Everything was great. The staff was pleasant and helpful, the room was extremely clean, and a half-sheet handout told you everything you would want or need to know: Breakfast time and menu, internet access, checkout info, etc. Beautiful rose bushes outside room.

We regularly stay at this particular Best Western when visiting our family in Northern California. Always clean, courteous, fair priced and convenient. You won't regret this choice. The staff always makes us feel welcome.
