OMG! It's 3am and I have to get up and get ready to leave the house by 3:45am in order to get to SMF (Sacramento International Airport). It is sooooo early.. I need my coffee! I load up and head down the road on yet another fabulous journey to Shenzhen China. The pictures will come as I am taking them.. Right now, I can barely ...
... the phone to my favorite girl who waits for me on the other side of the country, I am reminded of years ago when I waited for her on the other side of the world. Three friends, One road. And the man who waits tirelessly for my return. My heart is full. Bags packed. Goodnight to my father and kissed my mama twice. This trip could not come at a more perfect and unconventional time. I trust that all will be well, in my absence. Now sleep, tomorrow ...
We arrived in the late afternoon from Crescent City, Ca. We thought that the trip would take us 4 hours, wrong, it took 6 hours mainly because HWY 299 was really slow. The hwy is a curvy two lane road most of the way and there was lots of construction going on. At some points the construction caused long delays as the road was blocked to only one lane. We also stopped several times for gas, food, and to exercise Chuckie and let him relieve himself. The ...

First we went shopping for the road at the Walmart in Vacaville. Afterwards we made a stop at the Golfland SunSplash in Roseville and played a round of mini golf.

Historical Traveler Reviews Sierra Mountain Inn Grass Valley
Little Hotel Big Hospitality
My husband and I were delighted to find the Sierra Motel. We called all the area hotels and luckily they had a vacancy. We were apprehensive and then delighted. The owners are extremely helpful and resourceful. The accommodatioms are simple and immaculate. We plan to continue to visit that area and will happily stay there again.
Had a great visit!
We were in town for my sister-in-law's surprise b-day party. My brother had flown in her son's family from Tucson, AZ and the rest of us came from the Bay Area. We had 10 people in all and occupied 5 rooms. All the rooms were clean and the management went the extra mile to make sure we were comfortable and relaxed. It is located within a 5 minute walk to downtown Grass Valley.
The motel reminds you of the old motor inns, but this was so much more. The entire facility was new from the ground up including all the furniture/beds/etc.
Didn't expect a hot breakfast every day.
I would certainly return and would recommend it to anyone.
Great little getaway
Great place to stay for a getaway weekend. Clean, well appointed, convenient to downtown shops and galleries.
There are all types of rooms from a basic room, rooms with kitchenettes, to suites and the decor is wonderful throughout. Light breakfast is served in the morning and is very good.
Quiet and restful, it's a place I intend to visit again.
Great Rooms, Amazing Service
The rooms are immaculate! My daughter loved having her own space to spread out her things, and the charming views and classic architecture couldn't be beat. The service is impeccable. Our freindly hosts not only knew where the hot spots were, but also took the extra step of calling on tickets and reservations for us. We were spoiled each morning with a wonderfully prepared organic breakfast...delicious! We'll be back!
Pristine, friendly and great rates
We stayed at the Sierra Motel and loved it. The rooms are absolutely pristine - recently remodeled, nice beds and super clean. The whole place has been rebuilt following the lines of the original 1930s motel but the interior is definitely modern. Friendly hosts, great breakfast, and the best value!
Can't wait to return!
My daughter and I stayed at the Sierra Motel for four nights and we were so happy with the spotless room; lovely, friendly hosts, and personal attention. This motel is in a great location just off the busy section of Main Street and is a great choice for visitors wanting a small, homey place to stay. It is chaming and you will find Gini and Paul (I hope I have that right) will go out of their way to be sure you are having a lovely time. Also, thumbs up for the laundry service, Gini orgainzed it for us and it was worth the little extra and the woman did a much better job on my clothes than I do at home!!! Have fun in grass valley!!!
Try the scrambled eggs !
Chris and I stayed at Sierra Motel for a week while we looked up our new grandson. What a treat ! The rooms were bright, fresh and very clean. Every morning brought a different breakfast menu, but no need to worry, every one was a treat ( you should try the scrambled eggs ). There is a lovely part shaded terrace to eat or just to take a book and a cold beer.
If you are passing north of Sacremento or going towards Lake Tahoe and need a stop over, this is the one. Take a day or two and look over the old gold rush area.
We travelled around Northern California, following a family wedding. We stayed in international chains of hotels & small hotels but nothing compared to the Sierra Motel. From the afternoon that we arrived we were treated courteously & made to feel very welcome. The outside appearance of the Motel was extremely pleasing to the eye, and is obviously very well maintained. The room was immaculate with a very comfortable bed, the location was ideal as it was a short walk to the centre of Grass Valley. It was very pleasant to be able to sit on the verandah outside our room, in the morning to watch the world going by (to work) and then wander over to the deck to enjoy an excellent complimentary breakfast.
I do a lot of travel, working on a new website. -- (adventure travel). We stayed at the Sierra Motel in Grass Valley California in April 2006 for a few nights. To check out white water rafting sites, mountain biking trails and paragliding sites. I like adventure but when it comes to my lodging I like to be spoiled. They spoiled me!. Big breakfast in the am, beautiful rooms and free wireless Internet. I am not sure if it's a bed & breakfast or what. But it is the nicest motel I have ever stayed and as a thank you I am writing this and including a link in my web site
Thank you Sierra Motel I hope you do well.
Affordable, hospitable stopover in Grass Valley
This is a very nicely renovated and affordable old-style motel. The new owners are very friendly and eager to make sure your experience is a good one. The rooms, while nothing fancy, are very clean and comfortable. We were served a very good hot breakfast, included in the price of our room (the freshly baked poppyseed bread was especially good).
The motel is a few blocks from downtown, in a residential area. It was very affordable and also did not require a two-night minimum, which made it a great stopover on the way back from skiing. We would definitely stay here again. We also had a great dinner at the New Moon Cafe in neighboring Nevada City (Kathleen, one of the owners, offered to make the reservation for us).
