The Linda Vista is a modest, family-run road-side motel located conveniently near to the Sierras, and in the middle of the motherlode historic goldrush towns and the Amador County wine country. The swimming pool, nestled against the hill behind the hotel, is a nice place to relax. The rooms are clean, and the place is quiet, despite being (conveniently) located adjacent to Hwy 88. This is my motel of choice in the area. Also, if you are hungry, the Golden Wok retaurant, just west on Hwy 88, offers a top-notch Chinese buffet.
