Stayed here recently for 3 nights while visiting my in-laws in Grass Valley. I would agree with many of the other reviews here that the hotel is clean and well appointed, however the walls are very thin, making it incredibly noisy. Part of it was bad luck; the father of the family staying next to us snored like a grizzly... More

We enjoyed our stay very much! I wish we could have stayed longer than just one night though. Our room was clean and cozy.. The grounds were beautiful! Really, the only complaint we would have is the mattress.. Only because we prefer softer vs. firm! That's not a deal breaker for us though. We will definitely stay here in the... More

Basically the rooms are wooden huts bolted together, very tired and dated. Couldn't sleep due to noise transmitted through the wall. In fact #4 was like being on the inside of a coffin. Check the electrically safety of the hair dryer.

Check out our website. I am sorry you were disappointed in the room you chose. Sierra Mountain Inn was built in the 1930's as a Motor Court Inn. It was renovated in 2004. The owners decided to keep the knotty pine paneling in just one room #4. Please take a look at our website and see that it is the... More

Not sure what all the rave reviews about SMI are about. My room was gloomy and small with dark green, depressing carpet. Tiny flat screen TV that was mounted close to the ceiling, so you had to tilt your head up to watch...very uncomfortable. Window on the street made the room very noisy. Tiny kitchen with a fridge that had... More

Debbie is a great Manager and hostess. Everything was very clean and tidy, and if any6thing was needed it was supplied. Very pleasant surroundings and just a minute from town. Grass Valley has a large cute quotient. Will be back!

The Sierra Mountain Inn is a roomy, clean, comfortable place located in a mostly residential area--we overlooked a neighbor's rose bushes. We stayed in an accessible room farthest from the road and were not bothered by any traffic noise. Our room was a largish studio with kitchen sink, microwave and a bit larger than usual undercounter fridge. Some of the... More

We stayed here for two nights during a house hunting trip. We arrived quite late in the day. Despite making a note when booking on line that we'd be a late check in, that information was not passed to the hotel (this reflects badly on the booking service rather than the hotel). The hotel is actually a series of buildings... More

The room was very clean and up to date. The bathroom was nice, and clean. One of the chairs in the room had loose joints so was not very safe and the air conditioning unit was noisy. But, it was a nice day so A/C was not needed and I sat on the bed. So overall it was nice, clean,... More
