I have stayed at this motel several times over the years, and it has always been a good, solid choice. We stayed there again over Thanksgiving weekend, and again, it was very good. It is an older motel, as others have mentioned, but they do a pretty good job of keeping it maintained and updated. Our group had 3 rooms, all of which were clean and comfortable.
Being a holiday weekend, the motel was completely full, and the staff seemed a little stressed, but they still did a good job. Grass Valley is a small town, so I don't think they are used to dealing with a high volume of guests.
Because of the holiday weekend, we ended up reserving 2 smoking rooms and 1 non-smoking room because that was all that was available. I called several times leading up to our stay to check on cancellations for non-smoking rooms. The staff was always very gracious on the phone, but there weren't any N/S rooms to be had. Then when we arrived, they had an additional non-smoking room set aside for us. A last-minute cancelation had come in, and one of the front desk staff snagged it for us. I really appreciated that. We still had 1 smoking room, but even that wasn't bad - you could tell it was a smoking room, but clearly they do a nice job of cleaning the rooms, so the lingering cigarette smell wasn't overpowering.
