    This is not a chain, very quaint. Stayed in the cabin, very cozy and comfortable. Good bed, bathroom and kitchenette. Although it was nippy, the small stove/furnace kept the room comfy. You can walk to downtown,but it is a little hike, but the shops are...More

    Loved this cute place, located a short walk from the historic downtown area of Nevada City. Although it's a vintage style motor court, it's been updated with every convenience including microwave, mini fridge, and a nice collection of coffees and teas. The owners are clearly...More

    Thank you, so glad you appreciate the small touches (that and ceramic coffee mugs and glass drinking glasses are the other eco-friendly touches people appreciate).

    Terrific service, remarkable staff, and the BEST Halloween decorations ever. Charming interior. Vintage motel, not a hotel, carefully and tastefully preserved. Nevada City is an interesting historical town. We loved walking and seeing the carefully preserved buildings, eating great food in many places.
