    « Just OK! »

    It was ok. I was not a raving fan. Needs renovation work. (Landscape, paint, rooms, beds, lights) Managment lives onsite and was always in the suite behind counter. Multiple people had to ring bell for service. I wouldn't stay here again even in a snow storm as it is not worth the money.

    « Place for Apple Hill »

    A good place to stay when touring Apple Hill - the apple orchards and wineries. I have stayed at this hotel for the past three years. A convenient location. They serve breakfast as well. Simple but it will get you thru until lunch. Need to improvement coffee and orange juice service. Both are bland.

    « Overnight "Apple Hill" stay »

    When our usual Placerville Best Western was booked for our yearly visit to apple country for our pies, tarts, other yummies, we found this hotel right down the from our "sweet" travels. We were very pleased with the bed comfort, extreme cleanliness of the room and forest setting. Impressive also, was the breakfast room staff, who was continually cleaning up and restocking breakfast items.

    « A gem in the woods... »

    On our way to Lake Tahoe, we stopped at the BW Stagecoach Inn. Tucked in among the trees, this inn is a gem in the woods. Blending in with the surroundings, this inn offers a traveler a wonderful quiet place to unwind after a long drive. The manager was very warm and friendly. We had arrived late and were so relieved that our room was held for us. We were provided with a suite that was larger than those in some of the hotels where we had stayed. It was very clean and well maintained and the warm colors of the décor and comfortable couch made it easy to relax. The room included a microwave and refrigerator that were clean. The refrigerator was not frosted over and this was a welcomed change from the other places where we had stayed that offered refrigerators. A wonderful night's rest, tucked under a cozy comforter with the sounds of birds to greet one in the morning, made our stay truly enjoyable. This inn is like a gem in woods, a place that I would definitely recommend to others. If my family and I are in the area again, this place would be the first on the list to stay.

    « Nice Best Western »

    Nice Best western, but limited breakfast, and very small breakfast room, we could not find seating and ended up taking food to our room. and pool was closed in September though the weather was warm. Was told it had been closed for two weeks, and the heater turned off. I had really looked forward to swimming, so was a bit disappointed in that.

    « Clean & Quiet »

    My family comes to Pollock Pines yearly in September. Some of the family stay here at the Best Western. The rooms are always clean as well as the pool area. We always feel safe and not once ever had a problem. Parking is kinda tight at times. The pillows are the only thing I will complain about, they suck!!!! BRING YOUR OWN PILLOWS. But other than that one of the best hotels in Pollock Pines. I just found out they are pet friendly, so I might just bring my "Fido" one year.

    « mis ideas »

    Ya escribí mis comentarios. Tengo que trabajar.Having to write a bunch of caracters seems to be a bit overdone for this website. It seems that you really do not want it to be easy for a person to make some comments. The questionaire was already lengthy enough. How much more can I say about poor Internet service, which even limited phone call that we could receive, and a cold swimming pool. The staff, however, were lovely and very friendly!

    « Welcome comfort »

    We booked this place last minute after a nightmare situation with a trashy place in S. Lake Tahoe. Best Western Stagecoach Inn was only a short drive from Tahoe and well worth booking something out of town. It was welcoming and clean. Great room with a little balcony with a view of the trees and sky. The only reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 was because we had to wait for 10 minutes before someone came out to greet us in the lobby. We rang the bell 4 times and waited and waited while my son really had to use the bathroom. Also, the room was very noisy. There was a little building right outside our door that housed the heating unit or the pool house or something and it was running really loudly all night. I could barely sleep, even with earplugs. I complained to the manager but he told me there were no other rooms available. When we checked out the next day, he was very apologetic and kind, and gave me a complimentary bottle of local wine as a condolence. Very thoughtful of him.

    « Nice Accommodations at a Great Price! »

    We stayed here 2 nights while we were hiking in the area. We usually stay at Hilton properties, so I would say we have pretty high standards. We chose this hotel because we didn't want to stay in South Lake Tahoe (too congested!), so we were looking for something close to the hikes we were planning on taking. We were pleasantly surprised by our experience. The front desk staff was extremely friendly. The breakfast was plentiful - waffles, hard boiled eggs, muffins, fruit, cereal, yogurt, variety of breakfast sandwiches to microwave, oatmeal. Something for everyone! The pool was functional. It looked dirty, but it is just older. Definitely met the need of getting into some cool water after a day of hiking! Our room was great! We had a king room that had a comfortable lounge chair, a desk, and a small refrigerator. There was a sink outside the bathroom (something I always love!) and a sink in the bathroom. The bedding was updated and the bed was comfortable. The room was very clean. We also had an outside deck that had 2 chairs. I would definitely stay here again.

    « Combined Education/Pleasure trip »

    Wonderful hotel in the Pollock Pines area. Quiet and peaceful, well kept and the Managers are great. Close to town, Sly Park, Placerville and on the way to Lake Tahoe. Have stayed here on four previous occasions and have not been disappointed.

    « Quiet Stay »

    I was upgraded to a suite , I am a Diamond member and it was a great room. Very big 2 rooms one with fire place and dining area. Check in was quick and agent was very nice and professional. The location is nice and quiet with a very nice pool to cool off in with the heat as it was warm. Will stay there again.

    « Many Amenities »

    Very nice rooms, most with woodsy views and balconies. Everything clean and worked properly. Pool was nice although quite shallow for its size (only 5' in deep end, 3' halfway across). Breakfast was outstanding, lots of options including hot waffles, microwave entrees and pastries. I wish the double rooms had queens instead of fulls and some of the Tahoe-bound folks were a bit nutty but overall a terrific stop.

    « Pleasant night in Pollock Pines »

    Clean, modern, well landscaped, and one of the most comfortable beds we have slept on in a motel! Nice balcony for sitting out in the cool night air and looking at the stars. Just a little traffic noise from the highway. Breakfast area was very clean and offered the usual continental type items.

    « Comfortable night »

    I normally don't like any Best Western hotel, but this hotel was great. The room was so clean and the grounds were very pretty. We had a field of wild flowers outside the back patio. We were very comfortable. There was a well supplied continental breakfast.

    « Very pleasant stay »

    we selected this Best western over the other hotels/ motels in the area for price and quality. We often stay at the Best Western chain of hotels in our travels. This motel has a good quiet location, the rooms are large and clean, there is plenty of parking. We visit friends in Pollock Pines a few times a year and now we always stay at this motel when we visit since our friends do not have a comfortable place for us to stay. The staff is always friendly and helpful, the rooms are very clean.

    « Quiet and comfortable »

    Our room was comfortable and *quiet*. After dark, it seemed as though everyone got off the road, which is very close to the hotel. I have never stayed in a hotel and had complete silence to sleep. The only downside was the queen bed was not a full queen. It was more of a double bed. Luckily we reserved a room with two queens. I would stay here again if I were traveling to this area and needed a room.

    « Very glad to find this hotel »

    Had a horrendous journey after finding roads closed to Yosemite it was getting dark and the mountain roads scary for me. We came across this Hotel lovely and clean simple book in very friendly. Great view from room. Had a good meal at Stagecoat in. Great nights sleep.

    « Old school »

    Old school design with exterior corridors which some may not like. The floors made squeeking noises which may be disturbing. The location is nice and the staff is great. Breakfast is average and you will need to heat things up in the microwave if you want anything warm. Overall pleasant stay in a quiet area of the sierras. No elevator if that is problem for you with second floor units. Bed was pretty soft.

    « Wonderfully Comfortable and thoughtfully designed »

    I've stayed here about five times and have meant to tell other how lovely this place is. The rooms and bathrooms are huge. The place is spotless and very tastefully decorated. The beds are great and the TV's are big. There are thoughtful touches everywhere. The have a little breakfast spread in the morning which is unexpectedly big and varied. It's now my "go to" spot to stop when having to travel west out of the Bay Area and just get beyond Sacramento's horrid traffic.

    « area and structure »

    Surrounding area peaceful and quiet.... the building and room fit into our thoughts of a restful night in the foot-hills.. Best hotel I I have stayed in for some time... I would recommend this place to anyone,,, except Hillary of course....

    « Great Place »

    A wonderful mountain retreat for a stay. From the mountains to the Central Valley, this place is centered. Tahoe is an easy drive as is Sacramento. The foothills are beautiful, so take your pick. The balconies are a special treat for morning birdsong.

    « Best Western in Pollock Pines »

    Nice Best Western, met expectations, except, pillows were hard, and the breakfast was very limited. Good location, love the area, very clean and quiet. Would have liked some hot eggs, they only had hard boiled eggs, and some frozen breakfast items which had to be microwaved and did not taste good

    « Just So-So »

    This Best Western is off the beaten track in Pollock PInes. It is easy to find and is in a quiet location. This motel does not have an elevator, but it only has two floors. I stayed here during the week. It was not full but the people who were there were, for the most part, workers/laborers who clearly had their pick of rooms. I was on the first floor because I was told there were no more king beds on the upper floor. I had the pleasure of listening to whoever was above me thumping around during the night, walking in his/her room. I could make out phone conversations either between the walls or between floors. So, there is virtually no soundproofing. Other than human beings above or next to me the location of my room was quiet. Upon checking in I was not told about the complimentary breakfast. I was also not told about express check-out. The free Wi-Fi Internet was quite slow, but it was free. On the positive side, the room and bathroom were spotless. Cleanliness was not a problem. I probably will not stay here again, but I would not tell a friend not to.

    « Very nice rooms »

    Was very happy with this stay. I generally like a hotel that is enclosed and enter the room from a hallway, but was extremely happy with the nice room. Nice size, clean and comfortable. Would definetely stay here again when in the area.

    « Very comfortable and clean »

    Would have kept driving if we hadn't found this motel. A nice surprise rather far from population center. The drive from highway to the Stagecoach Inn will take you by several steakhouses and bbq joints, another good reason to get off the road here. We ate at the Fifty Grand; it was prime rib night. Yum.

    « Great Place for Family and Furry Friend »

    We like to stay here when we are headed to the slopes. It is just a short drive away from the resort and you don't need to deal with the overpriced crazy crowds of South Lake. The hotel is clean and nice, accepts small pets.

    « Nice place, quiet. »

    Very well kept, clean and new looking. Off the beaten path, no place really to walk to get a meal, etc. But nonetheless, and nice stop over if you're travelling. And they allow pets. Just be sure to tell the desk lady or she will scold you! Another young lady who was at the desk later was very nice and said not to worry about not "registering" our Toy Poodle. Plus, when we said we needed more coffee packets, she went out of her way to bring them to us. The "breakfast" is quite simple; coffee/tea/mike, toast, cereal, and maybe a mix of muffins. Spartan but ample enough to get you going.

    « Easy and comfortable overnight to ski Sierra »

    Nice roadside Best Western in pine forest setting. Comfortable, clean rooms, friendly staff and standard continental breakfast. Easy in/out and quiet location near highway. Rooms are clean, updated and have basic amenities. Good value, nice spot for an overnight road trip.

    « Meets the Bare Minimum Standards »

    We stayed here for a night recently this December. The room was clean and the bed comfortable but other amenities were limited: No heat in the bathroom; old, thin towels; hot and cold on the shower faucet were flipped; a poor caulking job in the shower and poor lighting for shaving and make-up application. We were not greeted when we checked in and no one was at the desk when we checked out.

    « Peaceful »

    This is a great place I wish I could have stayed longer. Reason being the manager is a great man that takes care of his guests. Lets put it this way he left the light on for me and made sure I had a bed to rest my head even with my late arrival. I slept like a baby the scenery was like Santa Claus, elves and reindeer were going to pop out. I enjoyed the short time I spent there and would love to shake the managers hand.

    « Great Place to stay »

    A great place to stay to break up a trip from the Bay Area to the Eastern Sierra - especially to avoid driving at night. Quiet, friendly, clean, and a beautiful location in itself! I will definitely be back.

    « Great Place To Stay »

    We enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Stagecoach. The room was comfortable and quiet. We asked for a room with a view of the pines and got it. It was lovely watching the sunset and see the pines and stars easily from our room. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was not fancy, but it was very clean. We really enjoyed the big comfy chair. The breakfast was sparse compared to other hotels we have stayed at. The location is perfect for a day at Apple Hill.

    Wonderful cozy hotel in a charming community. Lots of activity such as skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer and colorful and active Apple Hill. If you are going to Apple Hill for a family outdoor fun this is the place to stay.

    « Charming Best Western »

    We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. We are a big family so we stayed in their 2 bedroom suite with kitchenette & pull out sofa. there was room for us to play board games at night & the location was close to all the Apple Hill Orchards. It was very clean & the exterior is charming. We especially liked the owners at the front desk, they were very friendly & helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

    « Cozy pine-scented mountain retreat »

    We stay here often on our drives to the mountains from the San Francisco Bay area. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, Wi-fi, and cable make for a cozy stay. A good basecamp for western Sierras, Highway 50 south Lake Tahoe, and Highway 88 Mormon Emigrant trail adventures. We are repeat guests and will return. Their breakfast is simple - mostly cereals and carb breakfast, pastries, and refrigerated egg items with microwave. Yogurt and fruit were O.K. Like the large screen TV and the firm but cushy beds. Rooms have cute small back porches with fencing around for privacy, and property has pines and conifer trees for leafy green surroundings.

    Very nice hotel. Very clean and well accommodated. Good breakfast in the morning. Staff was super helpful and friendly. Helped us decide on where to spend our day picking apples and exploring. One of the better hotel experiences I have had. Will definitely be back. Stay here, you will not be disappointed.

    « Nice visit to Pollock Pines and Apple Hill! »

    Very clean with a helpful friendly staff. We left our cell phone charger in the room when we left and the office sent it to our home US Mail two days later. We enjoyed relaxing on the small deck off the room and visited Apple Hill the next day. We also brought a friend along that stayed in the room next door.

    « Family trip to Apple Hill »

    We chose to stay here because it was fairly close to Apple Hill; much closer than we originally thought. Overall it was nice. We were in a corner room on the ground floor, so very little traffic in front of the room. However, the rooms are laid out oddly with a lot of underused space. The windows in the showers are fairly low and so maintenance was working in the morning right by our window. I could not keep the window open while in the shower for privacy. HD TV with good selection of channels was great for the kiddo. Breakfast was good although the breakfast room was pretty small. Four tables all taken by families. Several people were coming in after us and had to take their meals elsewhere. I would recommend this hotel to others needing an overnight stay in the area, and we would stay again!

    « Relaxing and quiet stay at Best Western Stagecoach Inn »

    This was my second stay at this hotel and I found everything to be clean and well maintained. It was nice to have a comfy chair by the balcony door to read a book and look out over the foothills. Very relaxing spot in the foothills. The in-room fridge and coffee pot were very convenient for an afternoon glass of wine and morning tea.

    « Attractive location away from the highway but convenient »

    Location is excellent, not at a highway interchange with gas stations, malls, chain restaurants, cement, lights and lots of noise. Instead it is on a somewhat rural road with many trees that runs parallel to the highway and is easy to find. My room (101) looks out on a patio where there are trees. Pretty to look at. The night staff person was flexible about my very late arrival and allowed me to move to my room on my own. Hotel room was clean, pleasant, fairly standard Best Western type room with comfortable bed. Breakfast included the standard rolls, cereal, juice and coffee but also hard boiled eggs. That was great.

    « Nice enough hotel »

    Stayed here with my family. Very nice outdoor look to the hotel. The lady at the desk was very nice. The room were very spacious and cleanish. The balcony (of the non smoking room) had cans filled with cigarette butts in it. Our balcony was nice but looked out into gravel. The beds were very comfortable. The shower was big and had good pressure. The housekeeping was a little stingy with the soaps and shampoo (one teeny tiny bottle) but the sink outside the bathroom as well as one in the bathroom somewhat made up for it. The pool was small but was fun for the kids. It was very annoying to have to beg the front desk clerk to let you in, but oh well. Didn't try the breakfast but from what the family got it looked fine but nothing special. It seems the hotel puts most of it's time and effort into the lovely outside and is lacking a bit in in room upgrades and extras to stand out
