First of all, my wife takes care of me and makes all the reservations on our trips. On our first day, I allowed myself to become disappointed when I found out the Wifi was down. I called the front desk and spoke with "Brandy" to report the problem. She's also the desk clerk who also gave us a room across the street in the annexed area of the motel. Did I mention that disappointed me as well. I thought motels were big and all the rooms were in one big block. I was wrong and realized it was pretty nice set-up. Back to Brandy now..... Brandy told me she would come over to fix the Wifi problem. I thought to myself her solution was a distraction to my request and I would not have Wifi for three days while we vacationed. I explained to my wife what I suspected but she (Wife) of course told me t be quiet and be on vacation. I told myself I could live without Wifi and watching my hometown news channel at 10 O'clock for three days. At the time a large forest fire was occurring in Placer County which is where we are from and wanted to keep track of breaking news.
By morning Brandy came through and the Wifi was up and running. I quickly learned that Brandy was the "Back-bone" to the Emerald Dolphin Inn. She impressed me and without her willingness to take on all the responsibility of running the motel it would not have got me to write a review. She was a very hard worker as were the housekeepers. Everything was nice and well kept. Spend the few extra dollars and stay away from downtown where the homeless hang out. If you do stay here say hi to Brandy who will more-than-likely be checking you in and taking room service calls and fixing/making things right during your stay.
