First time I've walked into a hotel room at a decent price and it smelled clean and fresh. country style rooms, very comfortable beds, everything you need right in the room. Will stay here every time we come fishing. Staff went above and be on friendly service. Thank you Todd for your hospitality .

not only is the road great, the rooms great, and host friendly, it is so quiet and comfortable. wish I could have stayed another night, I hope not too many go here and ruin it, this is one secret worth keeping-go and see for yourself

I found Creekside Lodge a while ago on one of our visits to Grover Hot Springs. The owner, Jeannie, was so nice and accommodating-she allowed me to check out her rooms for a future stay. It took a while, but we finally made it there. The rooms were tastefully done - small, but had everything we needed for a nice... More

We were met by Todd (I believe that was his name.) when we pulled up and shown to our room. There was no check-in or for that matter check-out. He turned on the heat for our room showed us the ice machine and vending machines nearby. He also advised us that if we wanted lunch we need to get over... More

I seem to be finding all the best places lately. This is the only hotel / motel in the sleepy little town of Markleeville, California. Its located smack on State Route 89 and hence its street parking. But what delightful rooms. Great comfortable beds, clean as a Marriott property and very cute furnishings. I worked and the Wi Fi was... More

I've been through here a few times but this was the first time I stopped for the night. It is such a quaint little town and the Creekside Lodge was well in tune with this charm. It is built of logs and timbers and has the look and feel of being in one of the old lodges you find in... More

Not luxe in any sense but immaculate and friendly. Lots of cyclists, happy folks on their way to cycle the mountain passes. Great casual food next door at Ali's cafe, general store and ice cream across the street. Not a destination but a good base for exploring.

Went to Markleeville for a weekend getaway from Reno. We didn't want to pay the $200 a night+ price at nearby Sorenson's, so we opted for the Creekside Lodge. We wanted to be near the hot springs but not too far from home, and we didn't want to camp. The room was cozy and the management was very, very nice.... More

I wanted to spend a night away to "not" celebrate my birthday and decided to go up to Markleeville to enjoy Grover Hot Springs, a nice dinner, and a quiet night reading. I read the TripAdvisor reviews and decided to call and see if there was a room available at the Creekside Lodge. I had a nice conversation with Todd... More

A small inn in Markleeville, on the eastern side of the Sierras. The place is sparkling clean. Rooms are small but very adequate. All rooms have been recently (???) refurbished and are charming. Our compliments to Todd who was very helpful, gave us a choice of rooms to select from. Good food at the restaurant next door. All-in-all a very... More
