Livermore, California
Reviewed 12 July 2016

A bit pricey, but there aren't many choices. The staff was friendly and the room, although small for a 2 queen room, was adequate. The place has foreign flags hanging outside of all of the rooms which was cool. The towel rating, 1 for soft and 4 for cruelly scratchy, bordered on 4. The towels were not remotely soft. Slow...

Over the years these flags have become a memorable part of the guest experience. We've upgraded a number of rooms and installed the fastest internet...

One of the smaller motels in town and least expensive. It was a great place to stay for the night. The room was small and modest but clean. The girl at check in was very friendly and helpful. Walking distance to restaurants.

Our motel is quaint, clean, and comfortable and we are happy to hear that you found our staff to be helpful, Lucas (woof woof) likes that he was included in your nice review. Stay with us again when you are in the area.

The owner is very nice and was amazingly patient with my in-competencies (the wifi password is in the room, in really big letters, just look around). They put out juice and a snack for you when you check in. If you are a fisherman, they seem to have considered your needs and will provide ice and fish cleaning rags and...

Thank you for your detailed and thoughtful review. We are happy to hear that Ed, the Owner, was patient and helpful! Upon request, we provide toiletries at the Front Desk.

We used this motel as a base after visiting Bodie. The room was quite expensive compared to other motels we'd stayed in but was clean and well maintained. There was ample parking and in room wi-fi. Breakfast was a packaged pastry and fruit juice to eat in your room and given to you at check-in. Room had fridge, microwave and...

This was our second stay at this motel. The previous visit several years ago we found it to be rather dumpy (a room on the south side of the parking lot). This time we were given a room on the west side of the parking lot and it turned out to be fine. It appeared that it was recently redecorated...

During the 2016/2017 off-season, we upgraded a number of rooms (to refresh the look, enhance the quiet on the ground-floor rooms, offer the fastest wi-fi available in our rural area, and provide more electrical outlets – including USB ports) to create a more enjoyable stay for our guests. We look forward to your third stay!

Had the delight of staying there for three nights with a Photo Tour Group. Rooms were immaculate, the bed very comfortable, and the manager was a hoot. Would definitely stay again when in the area. Great location for touring the Eastern Sierra. The motel was filled with fun quirky yard art and the manager even had snacks prepared for us...

We appreciate your positive review as part of a returning Photo Group. This small but perfectly-sized and quaint Motel is ideal for groups, such as yours, including: Motorcyclists, bird-watchers, hikers, classic car enthusiasts, and family reunions that can all be adequately lodged here. We encourage all groups to reserve “early” to obtain the appropriate multi-night/group discount.

During my stay I encountered bed bugs at the Redwood Motel, room 17. I discovered the bugs after 11:00 pm so the office was closed and I couldn't change rooms. At 8:30 am, after a sleepless night spent in the desk chair, I informed the owner, Ed, that my room had bed bugs and showed him one I had trapped...

Good luck in finding any redwood at this location. Have you heard of lipstick on a pig? Peeling paint, antique wall furnace, and an electric plug (non GFI) within 6 inches of bath sink! VERY cramped 2 queen bed room! Breakfast...don't ask. Hose on driveway in front of office where it belonged?!! IMHO the motel operators in Bridgeport get together...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Redwood Motel is a clean, quiet, and comfortable motel with friendly staff. We are nestled in the high sierra, north-end of Bridgeport, and at the corner of Twin Lakes Road and Main Street. Our non-smoking rooms (some allowing pets) include a small refrigerator, microwave, coffee-maker, air-conditioning, Directv on flat-screen TV's, and free internet access. Guests enjoy the BBQ access in the common area and relaxing in our gazebo. Fisher-people appreciate the fish cleaning center and the ability to store and/or freeze their catch with the supplies and freezer provided. We are pet-friendly (as Lucas, the Owners dog, could express) but also set-aside rooms that have never allowed pets for those with allergies. Also provided is a morning snack (juice and pastry) to get you started on your day. ... more   less
