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

We picked this little motel based on cost and previous reviews. Its a bit of a walk to Main St. but very doable if its daylight and not with children. I would not recommend walking at night. We found out that there is a homeless camp not far from motel and a soup kitchen nearby. The rooms were clean and... More

When we couldn't get a room at one of the B&Bs on short notice, we decided to try this little motel. A good choice. Room was small, but very clean, and had all we needed. With the money we saved, we had a nice dinner at Bricks. It's not right in town, but just a few minutes drive. Our only... More

My husband and I spent three two nights and will return again. First, the owners are very nice and helpful both over the phone and in person. The room is super clean!! The recent remodel is great with tiled bathroom. The bed is really comfortable. I have nothing negative at all to say about this place. For the money, it... More

When we arrived the owner upgraded us immediately with no requests on our behalf ( probably because it was a Wednesday). It was a nice surprise! The rooms are small, but prefect for two people. The bathroom is tiled, the pillows are the softest, most comfortable pillows I've ever had at a hotel, and everything was very clean. The only... More

Look, if you are looking for a place with 2-4 stars, keep looking. But, if you are looking for a place to sleep and then move on, this is it! I found that the reviews are accurate for the Gold Trail Motor Lodge/Motel in Placerville, California. The place has been recently redone. My only complaint was that the knobs on... More

Nice stop from Bay Area to Tahoe. Leaving on a Friday night from Bay area to Placerville we hit a lot of traffic. It was nice to end up here and then go to Tahoe Saturday morning. Room was nice and clean, a great value, owner is very nice and accommodating. Son left his pillow and room, I called owner... More
