On an overnight jaunt on our scooters, we stayed at Sierra Mountain Inn in Grass Valley, at the upper end of Main Street. Simple rooms are set around a verdant lawn splashed with trees, giving it a country cottage feel. Our room was small, but offered everything we needed, including a mini-fridge, microwave and coffee-maker with excellent organic coffee. Updated bath with a decent shower and vanity, plus a magnifying make-up mirror. Free wifi worked like a charm. Parking just outside your room and it’s just a few blocks walk to downtown shops and restaurants. Staff is friendly and helpful. For a short stay, you can’t go wrong.
