“Great Value and Location”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

Spent two nights in a two room two bath suite while attending a wedding a Squirrel Creek Ranch. Hotel is closest hotel to the ranch, although not walking distance. Very clean comfortable rooms with friendly staff. Short walk to downtown Grass Valley which is very nice. Parking right outside your door. Has a motel look but our room was much nicer. Pictures on web cite are accurate depiction our room.

I'm certain the handful of good reviews for this place are either the owner, or people that do not travel much with low standards. Had a short business trip in the area and there were not anything available in the typical Sheraton/Hilton chains that I stay 200 nights of the year, so thought I'd give a local inn a try, as it was close. Sadly, it was a bad decision. When I mentioned where I was staying to the locals at the hospital I was working at, they cringed and said it used to be a run-down, nasty homeless shelter that someone bought up and tried to remodel. they indeed have remodeled their rooms, the marble walls in the tiny shower and new counter tops probably wow the casual traveler. However, the mattresses was old and lumpy and the stories of the place made me fearful that this old bedding may be infested with bed bugs or something; however, the only bugs I found were beetles, ants and spiders in the room... not great, but could have been worse, I suppose. Even the "need maid service/do not disturb" sign was covered in dead bugs and spiderwebs... housekeeping is not a strong point here. The old 19" CRT TV on a wall stand in the corner of the ceiling and the thin walls that make you feel like you are in the traffic outside scream cheap motel despite the new coats of paint and pretty shower. The final straw was when they charged me for a 2nd day after I had, in advanced, cancelled the 2nd day of my original reservation. They indicated that the travel agency I booked it through would need to call to get my reimbursement, but when the agency called, the owner refused to grant the reimbursement, leaving me to dispute the charges with my credit card company. The place had only 3-4 guests, so it wasn't like they are booked to capacity to miss out on even a late cancellation... just gouging to make up for lack of business. Stay away...

Room Tip: Stay elsewhere.

Extortion! or retaliation through social media, is a new rising problem for innkeepers, restaurants and small businesses, so I guess it was our turn to run into one. Jason reserved a room for 2 nights, and guaranteed it with his credit card and by so doing, agreed to our cancellation policy of 72 hours. Then canceled the 2nd day when he arrived giving us very little time to rebook it. We did explain to him that we would do our very best to rebook the room… but if not, because of the timing he would still be liable for it.
This review is clearly a retaliation for our cancellation policy, but no hotel large or small accepts less than 24hour cancellation
After searching the internet I found out this type of extortion is spreading and there is not much anyone can do, but we have contacted Trip advisor
Meanwhile please disregard this non review and look at all the other ones. Almost every review says how clean and nice Sierra Mountain Inn is, Trip advisor carefully monitors reviews written by the owner’s friends unlike he stated (lied) Trip advisor screens and tags them and you can see them tagged on the page.

This is a quaint older updated motel with a small kitchen in our room. The room had the feel of a B&B. Parking was outside the door. The room and bathroom were clean, bed fairly comfortable. A minor ant invasion in the kitchen area was attended to immediately by the friendly staff. We had a weak internet connection, ice was obtained in the office when open. Not the most reasonable price in town. Shops and restaurants are on the same street with free parking. Traffic and limited sidewalks made driving the best option for getting to that part of town. Grass Valley is a beautiful area and the town seems to know how to cater to the tourist.

Thank you for your review. We are glad you had a great time here at Sierra Mountain Inn. Thank you for the note on the wireless we will check it out and reset it to make sure it is back up to full power. One of the things we are known for is our super fast internet. As far as the price we do try to be competitive to ensure the best value for our guests, granted there are some less expensive places in our town just depends what each traveler is looking for and it is always a good idea to check the reviews first.. Thank you again hope to see you soon

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!
