Dirty bathrooms, old musty smelling rooms with hard beds. We had two rooms and in one the toilet stopped up and the other one the hot water stopped. Breakfast was very skimpy and the pool was half full.

Rooms dirty and outdated, tub is high off ground and very old, no hot water in one of the rooms- no one on duty until after 6:30 am and then they had to re-route the hot water through another room to the room we were staying in. The only thing that was ok was the beds.

This place really surprised us, based on the reviews we were sketchy about this place. We just wanted a place to lay our heads for the night and really didn't care about extras. We checked into our room and found it was remodeled and very clean. The bed was a king and very comfortable. New flat screen TV and fridge... More

I was really impressed by the very friendly service from the girl at the front desk and also the housekeeper. They were very sweet and accommodating with our dog which is helpful for us. While the room is old, it comes with a large mini fridge, good television, and also a microwave for a decent price. The breakfast that is... More

My husband and I went to a show at the Nevada theater in Nevada City for our wedding anniversary. There was nothing available near the theater, so I checked out Grass Valley. The price was right and the pictures made the motel look nice. The reviews were negative, but I tried it anyway. When we arrived, we thought the motel... More

This place is so outdated its almost a joke. There is not even the bare minimums here. It is a joke a bad joke. They have never put one cent back into this place. It looks like the 1970 s in every room. Plus I read in the newspaper that they where dealing drugs out of the office. They found... More

During those 11 months, the motel not only went under new management, but also made many changes and upgrades. Take a look at our new... More

We were on the road and getting dark so decided to stay in Grass Valley. Unfortunately Best Western was full so desperate to find something close and searched my GPS for other nearby motels. This one came up so without any research, which I always do when traveling, we stopped here. The desk agent was very polite, said it would... More
