Wow. This place is just... awful. The office is vacant. You have to walk through another property to get to *another* motel to check in, then haul yourselves back up a hill to your room. The room had obviously been remodeled, but... that's about it. No cleaning. No clean bedding. Holes in ceiling. Missing smoke detector. A toilet that didn't... More

We reserved a room at the Gold Trail Motor Lodge January 16-17, 2015. We arrived late that night and was charged an extra $25 per night for our 3rd person. The owners assigned room 12 at their adjoining Mother Lode Motel giving the excuse that no rooms were ready at the Gold Trail Motor Lodge. We walked into our room... More

On arrival we found that we had to check in at the adjacent motel, the owners (husband and wife) run) both motels. We were upgraded from a queen size to a king size room. The motel was an older style, the room although small was clean, comfortable and every thing worked including the wifi. No breakfast was served. The motel... More

I stayed overnight on business from southern California. This was easy to find and when I finely got to the hotel it was late. I was still able to check in and the staff was very friendly. When I made it to the room I was expecting something was worse, I was really surprised. Nothing too fancy, standard tv and... More

We stayed 3 nights here for a wedding in Placerville. The room is very small tough to get to the bathroom from the front door. However it was very quiet and peaceful. Perfect for staying at night and going out for the day. Very Well Priced.

And you'll be satisfied. One of the few dog-friendly motels in the area. Got a decent rate for July 4th weekend on the way up to Tahoe. The owner is very friendly and laid back. We added on an extra person at the last minute. When we got there, he offered us a bigger room for the same price, because... More

I met up with two other family members, we were all due at a wedding the following day in Pollack Pines. Upon arrival I did have to go next door to check in, no big deal. The gentleman at the desk was very polite, he drove back over to let me in my room. It was freshly remodeled and was... More

Not sure if management is new, but seemed confused and amateurish. Office geography is peculiar, almost camouflaged...Road noise is considerable, wifi challenging, and location generic. Advise staying closer to town center, or driving on...

There is no main office, you have to go to the mother lode motel. They didn't give us a key card after payment. We had to wait for someone to come up tithe room to give it to us. We couldn't park in front of our room because cars were already there. Plenty of rooms available for the night but... More
