We booked two nights for early June, on a last-minute low-budget trip with little time for research, so I was nervous about the choice. It turned out very well! It's definitely a mom-and-pop kind of place, but the owners were friendly and helpful with my area questions. The rooms seem to be fairly recently redecorated, very nicely (modern colors and fresh style, newer bedding). Each one has a different Sierra area theme; e.g. ours was the Wyldeyrie, with pictures of that resort through the years. Nice local touch.
Our standard motel room was comfortable for two, maybe a bit cramped for more. Two queen beds, one armchair, desk & chair, tv, microwave, minifridge (which never got really cold). No in-room coffee, though we could have gotten it in the lobby. Plenty of luggage space (open, next to the door). They advertise a continental breakfast, but it seems to depend on how full they are (they were pretty empty that weekend, so no breakfast offered). Our room on the second floor looked out to the forest; although it was a warm weekend, the room was comfortable if we just left the window open and ran the ceiling fan. We enjoyed the breeze, and listening for the blue jays and other birds.
The bathroom was small with an awkward door, but spotlessly clean, with immediate hot water and good water pressure. Good towels, though I like them bigger.
It’s maybe a five minute uphill walk to The Village complex, with shops, restaurants and gondola. Being between seasons, many places were closed or on limited hours, but we had no trouble finding places to eat, and felt very comfortable walking back in the dark.
For a longer visit, I would prefer one of the many condos in town, but for another short trip, I would absolutely stay here again.
