James abs Tony were beyond accommodating, they made me feel like family during my stay. The room was sweet and comfortable with adorable outdoor spaces around the beautiful property which was welcoming to my dog as well. It felt like home. This will be my home away from home in grass valley from now on!

The cottage that we rented was so cute and the owner was just charming. Unfortunately, what we could not see on line was that the cottage sits right on a very busy highway. The owner knows that highway noise is a problem; they supply earplugs on the nightstand. He offered that we could stay in a room across from the cottage but we were looking for absolute quiet in the Sierra foothills, so we left and stayed at another place. we would have loved to stay but the highway noise was just a deal-breaker for us.

Charming renovated property in a fabulous location! My best friend and I took a mini-holiday here and it could not have been better. Cottage is cozy, comfortable, and impeccably clean. Great amenities (hand crafted soaps; fresh flowers and candles; snacks; breakfast in fridge). And Tony was super welcoming amd kind. He poured us a glass of wine to enjoy by the fire pit and gave us excellent tips for restaurants and things to do in Grass Valley. Thank you, Tony! I hope to return!!

The Pines Motel is delightfully funky very adequate lodging. They offer very nice amenities from a well stocked refrigerator to hand milled soap. Dorothy, gave a us a warm friendly greeting and she let us know she was there to help if needed.

Great place to stay! I booked it for my husband while he was traveling. He ended up enjoying his stay at this remodeled Motel. Peter and Tony do a great job! We look forward to staying there anytime we are in Rough and Ready!!

We loved our stay and will definitely be back.Tony was great! It was an easy breezy check in, he showed us our room and explained everything. The room was super clean, the fridge was fully stocked with snacks, beverages, breakfast food and coffee. We loved the kitchenette, the bath robes and slippers were a plus, the soaps provided were made for the motel and we loved them. Also, the bed and pillows were extremely comfortable. Tony also had wine out for the guests in the evening which is always a nice treat. The motel was super close to restaurants and shopping, you can drive a few minutes or walk for 15 minutes into the main town area. I wish my stay was longer but next time I’ll stay more than just one night. I’ll be sure to share my fabulous experience with all my friends. Can’t wait to return!

Wow ! Very impressed great place to stay. Ownership will make sure you have everything you need for a pleasant stay.

Our stay could not have been any better. Big thanks to Dorothy! Nothing to do with motel or facilities but had it not rained as much in Grass Valley, our whole Thanksgiving stay would have been perfect.

Wonderful stay, perfect accommodations. Very cordial staff. Will stay again.

Great little place to stay! The room was renovated and super clean! Peter was very welcoming! The only con was the WiFi!

Nice open area to park and lounge in the patio chairs. The room was clean and nicely decorated. 1 mile away from Old Town, plenty of places to shop, eat and drink. We plan on revisiting this location

My room was right on the road with trucks going by at 5:30 AM-impossible to sleep through. The fixtures looked okay but were very cheap. The owner/manager was very nice. No desk and chair to work at.

I waited 10 minutes to check in."HELLO is anyone here?" I had to hunt down a worker during regular business hours. I paid $130 for a room I was quoted for a room online with kitchenette,tub and sitting area and was given a smaller room with a shower. I changed rooms to the one I picked online. I left for a meeting. When I returned I realized the bathtub was dirty. ((greasy dirty)) and hair in the tub and covering the floor. there was food on the table and floor. I opened the bed and there was hair on the pillow and in the sheets, dirty sheets!!! clearly the bed hadn't been changed in some time. I took a wet wash cloth and swiped the bathroom floor and tub. it was covered in greasy dirt and hair!!! I called the clerk and demanded a refund. After the owner realized I would not take another room he agreed to refund. Filthy mess! HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE and had to find another spot late at night

Hi Laura! I’m sorry it took me so long to thank you for this lovely review. Their system was down to do so until today. The ping pong table is set up and waiting for you! Bring a friend to play with or you can teach us to try to keep up😀

We're sorry you didn't want to stay in another unit away from the road. We understand you wanted total quiet and we are near Historic Downtown.
