“Dog Friendly and easy to get to location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

We travel a lot with our dog and really understand when a place is dog friendly. This place is...lots of grass, even offered us doggie bags at the front desk. The Inn is located on a side street without a lot of traffic, so easy to talk the dog for a nice long walk. We got the exact room we wanted, and only $20 charge for the dog. Rooms were very nice and clean, pool area is small, but, inviting. Breakfast had a good selection, including scrambled eggs and sauage patties, much more than the typical continental breakfast. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable of the area. Definately would stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms with numbers from 170-180 are away from the freeway and the main entrance.

This was a good choice for my weekend in grass valley and Nevada city. The motel was right off the freeway and easy to locate. But it was also quiet. Staff was friendly and efficient and my room was clean and ready when I arrived. Breakfast was generous if not exactly gourmet. I will stay the again on my next trip to the Gold Country.

Room Tip: I was on the lower floor and could hear a little noise from above but not enough to bother me.

Stayed here 5 nights. Had a plane to catch out of Sacramento. Left a wake up call and set the bogus alarm clock. Neither one worked. As a result, no shower or breakfast..had to rush like heck to the airport to return car rental. Good thing I didn't trust either...slept with one eye open all night.
Don't stay here if you have an appointment the next morning or don't have your own alarm clock.

Room Tip: Room 101 was ok, had flat screen TV where others didn't.

This was an OK experience. The hotel staff were courteous and helpful, the rooms very average motel standard. The buildings are very close to an elevated section of the highway so check which room you are booking some are virtually underneath it. The swimming pool is dinky - not big enough to swim in. Complimentary breakfast was ok, well-stocked and a good variety, but the food items were not particularly good quality. Nothing wrong with it for the price we paid ($114), just not very attractive.

We were visiting our son who lives in Penn Valley and we stayed there for four nights. The room had obviously housed a smoker prior to us but not really a big deal and the smell faded really quickly. We were very comfortable there the location was very convenient for access to local stores and the road network. The only beef was the breakfast room which was really cramped when everyone showed up at 8.30! Paper plates seems a bit odd but I guess there are plenty of trees locally to make paper. I'm not really convinced of the green credentials. Anyway I would stay there again without hesitation - particularly if I could get a sub 100 dollars rate.

Arrived right at check in time. Pleasant introduction to facilities. Good directions to room. Upstairs near pool. Unaffected by any noise. None detected. Nice appointments in room. WiFi was great connection. Breakfast not sampled except for two cups of coffee. Nice coffee. Full motel, but breakfast room was not overly crowded at prime 9am Saturday morning time. Booked through hotels.com. Got my money's worth. Would stay again. Starbucks across the street inside Safeway. Plenty of other services and retailers within walking distance.

Loved this hotel in beautiful Grass Valley for its comfortable room, great hot breakfast and nice pool for the kids. We spent the weekend there while attending a wedding and met with friends with children and all had a great time hanging out here! The breakfast eating room was crowded so we ate outside by a small apple orchard and our kids played with the apples that had fallen to the ground. We enjoyed swimming in the pool - small but comfortable. Got a great rate ($50) on hotwire!

Room Tip: Ask for a non-smoking room. We didn't specify and got a smoking room. I didn't feel like p...
