Made a trip up to Markleeville last year and stayed here while under different owners. At that time the owners were remodeling the rooms, bathrooms and sprucing up the motel. This past weekend I made a trip back up to train for the Death Ride with a group. The rooms are nicely updated with new carpets, paint, furniture and baths with granite vanities. While our group received a great room rate, my room was lacking a few amenities such as a television and coffee maker that were in some of the rooms my friends occupied. There is a microwave and some coffee and tea available near the front desk, but would have been nice to have available in the room. There is a freezer locker underneath the stairwell, but would have been nice to have a small refrigerator in the room for drinks or leftovers from dinner. The wifi worked well for about the first hour of arriving, but was pretty much useless for the remainder of the weekend. My carrier, AT&T was spotty on both cell and data at the location, so pretty much needed to go into town to check emails from the library or one of the local cafes. I plan to come back up for more cycling and fishing in a few weeks and will probably stay here again, but hope to get a room with a television and have the wifi functioning.
