We spent one night there on our way from the Yosemite to California. The owners couple took the place over just a few days ago and were very friendly and helpful. The room was small but clean and comfy and we found everything we needed for our stay. The room was quite despite the rooms next to us were all... More

Our son and his pregnant wife were visiting us. We toured the motels in the area and found that the Sierra Motel is a gem. The management was very friendly and accommodating and the room worked perfect as a "home base" for them. The room was quiet and clean. We highly recommend this motel!

the people are nice, the room okay, but starting at 7 a.m. the traffic is bad. not even a sound machine could drown it out. the lady that said she couldn't hear it from the "back" was misleading. there is no rear to this motel. the "back" is just 100 years further from the road.

This motel gave me the 3 things I want most when I'm travelling: an impeccably clean room, a comfortable bed, and plenty of hot water in the shower. It's not fancy but is very well kept up for an older property. I thought it was an excellent value for the price, especially since they only charged $10 for my dog.... More

I was on a long term project and lived at the Sierra Motel for the better part of 6 months in 2012. I had a unit in the back with a kitchenette. A little dated, but is suited me just fine. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. Having a unit in the back helped dampen noise from... More

Stayed here on a Sunday night in August for $61.00. The room and bath were clean. The bath had a shower stall with plenty of hot water and good water pressure. There are more than enough nice, thick towels. Larger size bars of soap are provided, which is nice. Two beds in my room (Queens or double beds?) were comfortable,... More

Amazing bargain in a must-visit little town between Carson City and Los Angeles. Shows TLC in every aspect of the accommodations and grounds. Call ahead to make sure you don't run into a 'no vacancy' sign. Gardnerville itself is a fantastic place, clean as a whistle. I am on a lifelong voyage with my camera--a bit focused on automobiles, but... More

I recently planned a trip to Carson City for Memorial Day weekend. I started planning too late and most every where was fully booked.

We have stayed here several times. We keep their business card with us so we can call for a reservation if our travels take us through Gardnerville.
