Visited wife's relative while in Grass Valley and booked at the Grass Valley Holiday Inn. Great location - easy access, centrally located close to downtown for those who like to explore. Had our 10 year old daughter and 6 year old son along, and upgraded to a suite, which included a microwave, refrigerator and small pull out sofa. Beds were comfy. Continental breakfast - nothing too fancy - but included in price.
One minor lament was no swimming pool - nice for kids to blow off steam, but there's enough to do nearby hiking, rivers, etc., that it wasn't a problem.
One quirk: The fresh air / ventilation for the elevator shaft must have had a direct line to the outside because the elevators were about 30 degrees colder than the hallway/lobby. Felt like walking into a freezer at times. (The mornings were in the 30s/40s when we stayed. Room temps were just fine, though). Elevator temps were noteworthy, but not a problem.
Overall, a pleasant stay.More
