This place is so outdated its almost a joke. There is not even the bare minimums here. It is a joke a bad joke. They have never put one cent back into this place. It looks like the 1970 s in every room. Plus I read in the newspaper that they where dealing drugs out of the office. They found...

Dear Jen, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We noticed that you mentioned you stayed at our motel in March 2014. However, you wrote your review 11 months after your stay. During those 11 months, the motel not only went under new management, but also made many changes and upgrades. Take a look at our new...

We were on the road and getting dark so decided to stay in Grass Valley. Unfortunately Best Western was full so desperate to find something close and searched my GPS for other nearby motels. This one came up so without any research, which I always do when traveling, we stopped here. The desk agent was very polite, said it would...

I had my weekend planned around the Strawberry Festival in Grass Valley and had not made hotel arrangements before hand. The Holiday Lodge was the only hotel with any vacancy and I am thankful for that! I was put in the room they call The Miners Cabin and it was such a cool theme. From a wood burning stove to...

This Motel is an old funky one, probably from the 60's but the rooms were clean and in a quiet area. The grounds were well kept. Good location easy on and easy off Highway 20. For the price we paid it was well worth it, but if your looking for a 3 star look somewhere else. The girl at the...

Clean room, excellent and professional staff! Thanks, Holiday Lodge for a great resting place that I can call home for 1 night. Never been here before. Will recommend to any travelors. Lots of eating places near here. A freeway ramp is been build to exit to this motel within the near future.

Check in went fast. After that I could not get any help from management. All the plugs in the room don't work. Every time I turned a light on the plug would fall out of the socket. And had to plug my cell phone in in the bathroom. They don't offer a phone in the room because they choose to...

When we first pulled into the place we felt we had driven into the local flop house with rooms to rent by the hour. Had a tarp over a section of the roof, old mattress stacked along the street side. Upon walking into the office we were greeted very nicely by a wonderful woman with a great sense of humor....

An unclean "non smoking" room. Overpriced. My preference is to stay in locally owned places but this was a bad choice. I would recommend finding a different place. The location is ok but not walkable to Grass Valley's cute downtown
