There just aren't a lot of hotels to select from in this area and this hotel was built fairly recently, so it is still in good shape and the hotel rooms are only accessible from inside which makes
everything safer. This community has a very low crime rate, yet you do still need to be alert as a common sense precaution. I lived here for 20 years and know it well enough.
Everything you need is within walking distance - shopping, restaurants and coffee houses, cultural arts, entertainment, city government offices, post office - all of it. There are many churches within a short drive, too, as well as more shopping and there are lots of visitor attractions nearby in both Grass Valley and Nevada City and areas beyond here.
DO take the free bottled water if you are a IHG rewards program member, rather than use the tap water in the bathroom, although the drinking water for this area is among the best I have enjoyed.
Don't expect a lot of television options unless you are willing to pay for the movies, though. Some hotels just don't offer as wide a variety of programming as others. [Less]
