I love the idea of a no thrills resting place, parking my car by my room and being so close to my family that live in town. We have stayed 2 separate times now, 4 nights total as I thought I would give the Inn a second chance. Our first room had dirty used dishes in the kitchenette draws :-(... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Sierra Mountain Inn. The room we stayed in was nicely remodeled and spacious. We were not in the main block of room but in a free standing room with a king size bed behind the office. The grounds were nice too. If you enjoy staying in non corporate hotel/motels then stay here.

At the last minute we decided to head to Grass Valley. So happy we found this place! After a long week, we were able to catch up on our sleep and wander this adorable town. The room was super clean. Very helpful front desk. Walls are a little thin, but tolerable. Did I mention clean?!!!

Great classic spot with loads of charm. The room was well appointed and mostly clean and it was close to town for walking to dinner. This area of Grass Valley has lots of traffic but that is to be expected as it is on a main highway. The office staff was accommodating and friendly. Nice stop!

While the rooms are clean and charming, the walls are paper thin and we heard our neighbors late into the night. Also a lot of street noise. Heating units also loud. Very expensive for what you get; a super 8 room at b&b price.

Thank you for your review , We are so sorry you had a noisy night here. All the walls at our inn are sound proofed or what they call “sound deading” walls and are better than most hotels. They seem to work well until you get an extremely loud person next door, as you did on New Years , they... More

I'm certain the handful of good reviews for this place are either the owner, or people that do not travel much with low standards. Had a short business trip in the area and there were not anything available in the typical Sheraton/Hilton chains that I stay 200 nights of the year, so thought I'd give a local inn a try,... More

Extortion! or retaliation through social media, is a new rising problem for innkeepers, restaurants and small businesses, so I guess it was our turn to run into one. Jason reserved a room for 2 nights, and guaranteed it with his credit card and by so doing, agreed to our cancellation policy of 72 hours. Then canceled the 2nd day when... More

This is a quaint older updated motel with a small kitchen in our room. The room had the feel of a B&B. Parking was outside the door. The room and bathroom were clean, bed fairly comfortable. A minor ant invasion in the kitchen area was attended to immediately by the friendly staff. We had a weak internet connection, ice was... More
