We live up here in "Apple Hill", and my in-laws needed a place to stay while we are remodeling. We've been watching this old time motor lodge, and its transformation during its own remodeling, with amazement. The pool has been reconditioned, the landscaping is absolutely amazing, and the interior of each room has its own unique sponge painting and color. This motel is a throw back to the old era of motor lodges, not unlike the ones on the original route 66. The exception is that this one is being taken care of, it's not run down, and your stay will be pleasant.
The rooms are all newly textured, painted, carpeted, and tiled. The bathrooms are extremely clean, because they're all new! This motel is just of Hwy 50, but not too close that you hear the traffic. Its 5 minutes from El Dorado Counties famous Apple Hill, and all its wineries.
To get there, you'll drive through the lights of Placerville, on Hwy 50 going east, and turn right at Point View Drive. The motel is on your left. Take note of the original neon sign that boast "all electric heat!" This place is a real slice of Americana; you'll enjoy your stay. My inlaws really enjoyed their stay in their King sized bed, and they said that the great deal made it even better.
For some reason, their phone number is not listed on this site, so I'll give it to you, it's [--]. You have to make your reservations the old fashioned way, they're not "online" yet.
