We enjoyed our holiday with family in Grass Valley, CA and one of the few locations in town was the SMI. It is in a very quiet part of town, about 5 blocks to the quaint old town section and the Cornish Street Fair was there for the holidays. All very fun. However, the room was overtly small (albeit nicely refurbished recently). No place to put your suitcase and no dresser to put your clothes so you are always stepping on things. The colder weather was arriving and the bathroom is not heated, but it got warm quickly since the whole bedroom is only about 14 X14. No complaints on the stay, but for what we got (and no maid service on a holiday) it was very over-priced. No amenities such as breakfast, ironing board, no porch, no real place to relax except inside the rooms and they were small. It would have been a much better experience if they did not require a 4 night minimum (I think that is only because of the holiday) and it should have been about $30/night cheaper. There are better deals in town with better prices and more amenities, but I admire the quaint setting.
