I wish we could have stayed a few extra days. (We only stayed one night.) I have not stayed at a B&B before so it is difficult to compare, but our stay was really friendly and welcoming, like staying with friends.

Stayed in the Edinburg room for three nights for a mini-honeymoon. The rooms were nice and clean, and very comfortable. The only issue I had with the room is that I actually like to watch tv at times and the television seems to be set up to be watched from the bed but the bed is higher than the tv so you can't see it. (Wouldn't be a problem for most people but due to my disability, I have to lie down several hours a day.) There was one miscommunication that caused our room not to be serviced one day but it was corrected immediately

I visit friends in Placerville at least 4x a year and always stay at the Glen Morey. Alison and Tom are friendly, welcoming people. My favorite room is The Inverness. This house was built in 1859, so don't expect the amenities of a 5-Star Hotel. Nevertheless, it's comfortable. Breakfast is nutritious and good. Tom is always happy to tell guests about the history of the house. It's on a hill overlooking the freeway, but you don't hear the traffic. The front room has books and games and even a piano. The Inverness Room has a shower if you can't get into a tub.

I was tired of expensive, old, chain hotels, so I thought I would try a B&B. After reading some of the reviews, I decided to reserve a room at GlenMorey. I arrived around six, in the dark, followed the signs that led me into the dining room at the back of the house. Alison, her daughter and the cat came out to greet me. They made me feel welcome immediately. When she found out that I was visiting a friend in town, she immediately invited her for breakfast the next morning. Just remember that this is a very old house and don't expect a 5-Star hotel. It's warm, comfortable, and friendly with big springy beds. Breakfast was wonderful: a zucchini frittata, fruit, sausage, scones. Tom joined us while he had his coffee and answered our questions. I'm sure everyone asks that same questions, but he acted as if he'd never been asked about the history of the house, the pictures in the hallway and living room, what made them open a B&B, where were they from, etc. etc. The house is situated directly above the highway and I thought I would hear the cars, but I didn't. This is the place I will stay whenever I visit Placerville.
