“Great place! Front desk lady was kind of standoffish”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 via mobile

Great place to go! We loved our room but the lady up front wasn't as friendly as everyone boasts on here. Then check out, no one was in there. Didn't know if I should leave the key and a note or what but eventually some guy came out.

We liked the closeness of everything to downtown/main st which was nice. Very nice and clean rooms.. Would stay here again!

Thank you for your review. We are glad you had a good time at the Sierra Mountain Inn and Grass Valley. Sorry, for the delay when you came in to check out, we are a small family run Inn and so when you came in to check out, I was up on a ladder in one of the rooms painting, so it took me a while to get down the ladder and back to the Lobby. We apologize if you had the impression that our front desk receptionist was a little standoffish ,everyone here takes great pride in always being at our best , it maybe was just a misunderstanding . Thank you for staying with us please come back again soon.

Beautiful, quaint Inn with very clean, updated and spacious rooms. Helpful staff and great location. Best part of our stay was relaxing on our porch, overlooking the shady, green front yard. Within walking distance to several restaurants and shops. We will certainly stay here again, and highly recommend this inn.

Wow! What a wonderful experience staying at the Sierra Mountain Inn. Couldn't ask for better location in this historic Gold Rush town, park right in front of my room, walking distance into town to great restaurants, wine tasting, shopping and events!
It's a nice, small, clean, proudly family-owned hotel that offers reasonable competitive pricing and great flexibility...unlike some corporate ones...
We will most definitely stay here again. What a great way to get out of hectic city life and into small-town real life!
They have regular rooms for two people and suites for families with flexible additional bedding.
Just Great!

Room Tip: Room booking is quite flexible, just a room or a room with extra, connecting room for additional bed...

Large family wedding in town, so we took up the majority of the rooms ~ the kitchens are great to have, especially with kids (cereal, making sandwiches, etc). Absolutely spotless clean, nice size bathrooms. Beds and sheets amazing. Ladies in the front office were so sweet and professional - didn't faze them one bit when we all walked in the door at the same time! Very pleasant sitting out front on the lawn under beautiful redwood trees just reading or catching up with family over some wine. I traveled from Nashville - and would love to go back with my husband sometime. LOVE LOVE the gold country!

It was just me so the 2 ladies on reception put me in the Cottage, when I opened the door it was like walking into an Aunts house, everything slick and span, but not clinically so.

The room was equipped with everything, china mugs make such a difference, plenty of cutlery, everything you're likely to need, good WiFi too, a must these days

The bed was so comfortable I slept like a log, the location is just on the outskirts of oldtown so a quiet place

The ladies in reception were very helpful and knowledgeable, they saved the day a couple of times

I wish everywhere could be as good as this

Room Tip: Every room is differently themed with variations in the accommodation, all excellent rooms

Clean and comfortable. I love having a kitchen when I stay somewhere. Close to town, easy walk to shops and restaurants. I would stay here again and will probably return to explore the area again. There is a lot to see.

Reviewed 18 December 2013

My husband and I just stayed here this past weekend. We were in the area for the Victorian Christmas festival in the neighboring city of Nevada City. The Sierra Mountain Inn is conveniently located a short walk from Grass Valley's downtown shopping area. We stayed in room 12, located in the back of the property, which is a quiet location, next to a beautiful redwood tree. We found the room to be charming and very clean. We were helped by two different people at the front desk, and both were very friendly and welcoming.

There is nothing fancy about this place, so if that's what you are looking for, stay elsewhere. The only downfall we could think of was that the bed was a bit on the soft side.

If you want a convenient, clean and friendly atmosphere, this place is for you! We loved how close it was located to all the restaurants and shops, and would stay here again in the future.

Room Tip: Room 12 is located in the back of the property, away from the road... it was a quiet location.
