Reviewed 18 October 2016

We have stayed there several times over the years, but the most recent experience was very disappointing. No room service between the 2 nights. Drapes wouldn't open. Exterior features show a lot of deferred maintenance. The best part is the nice location and setting, and the included breakfast was very nice.

We stayed here for a wedding, with lots of friends. We had a basic motel room, which was very dated and in dire need of a renovation. The bed and pillows were uncomfortable, linens thin and old. The sink and bath area had cracked tile, dirty grout, and was just generally dingy. Some friends were in cabins, which were just...

We rented a cabin for our family of four. There was only one bed, so they gave us a roll away and our other teen slept on the couch. Breakfast was good We enjoyed the train ride to the museum. We felt our stay was a good value.

This motel is really very nice. The grounds are manicured and beautiful, especially the lawn area where weddings are held, by the waterfall. The train cars all around the property are fun to explore and one is converted into the dining hall where a delicious breakfast is laid out. Fresh baked muffins, coffee cake, bagels, local fresh fruit accompanied by...

The northern queen is famous to the locals here. I grew up in this town and the northern queen was always the place to stay. We came back to the area and though it has seen better days (their famous restaurant, trolley and maybe even their train is no longer around), it is still a quaint place to stay. The...

This hotel has seen better days, but it is very clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. there are not many options in Nevada City and this suited our purposes. Even though it is by the highway, it's pretty quiet. They do have some cabins further away from road, but did not get a chance to check out.

For a 2-star hotel then it meets surpassed the standard. The room is spacious than expected and overall clean! The bed sheets are clean and comfy. The wifi is weak at times. The shower is good. I was satisfied with my one night stay. If the price is a little less I would give it 5star.

We are here often and enjoy the cabins. They are a bit dated but very comfy. The bed was nice but a bit on the hard side with some lumps so maybe time for new mattresses. The wireless internet has not worked the last 3 years we've been here. The signal strength is strong but will not connect. I think...

The office is located in the old Nevada City Narrow Gauge Railroad Depot - very cool indeed. The hotel/motel itself is very quiet and clean, but could use some updating. There is a laundry facility on-site, which we desperately needed! They also need to upgrade the Wi-Fi - it was quite weak. The on-site restaurant was closed for renovation, but...
