Booked this hotel several months in advance to stay the weekend for the Death Ride, which is based near Markleeville, CA and rides over several of the local mountain passes. I arrived on a Friday afternoon and checked in. My roommate was checking in later that evening and to my surprise only had a single electronic key available. This did not make sense to me since I specified a room with two separate queen sized beds to only get one key. This made it somewhat inconvenient as we had to check in with one another as to what time we planned to be back at the room, but was workable. The location of the inn was good and nearby to restaurants and a Starbucks. It was nice of the staff to have an early breakfast for the riders participating in the Death Ride since many were starting their ride at 5:30am or earlier, so the complementary breakfast started at 3am to accommodate those riders. It was definitely nothing to write home about, but did have dry cereals, oatmeal packets, danish, yogurt, coffee, fresh fruit, juice and a waffle maker. The staff was polite and helpful when necessary. The room was clean and featured a microwave and mini refrigerator. The wifi worked on my computer but would switch from the one for the inn to another found wireless access. The bed was okay and had an assortment of pillows which was a nice touch (since I like softer ones). Given the choice I would stay here again, but it was nothing extra special about this place.
