This 18-room motel sits right next to the freeway, so it's easy to find, but there is (of course) some traffic noise. The (new) windows block most of it, and when we ran the air conditioner, we hardly heard the traffic at all. Beyond that, the rooms are spotless and well maintained, the staff nice, the grounds cute, and the... More

I've stayed in the Colfax Motor Lodge on many occasions. The motel has been remodeled in recent years. The rooms are modest and clean. Because the motel is right next to the freeway the truck noise could bother some people. When I stay there I run the air conditioner and it doesn't bother me. If you are on your way... More

We spent a night at the Colfax Motor Lodge a few months after the new folks took over. When we found that the TV remote for our room was dead, they replaced the battery instantly. Room was nice, if a little old-fashioned (sink outside the bathroom next to the front door). The lodge is a few blocks from the business... More

This motel is one of the best I have ever been to. The manager and staff are small town friendly with a big heart. Their kindness knows no limit. The environmentally friendly owners have had solar panels installed on a large portion of the roof, providing electricity to the motel. The rooms are very clean. The maids are friendly and... More

I want to start by totally disagreeing with that one bad review, but thats why I served my country, for freedom of expression. I spent a week here, while attending a course here in Colfax. Not knowing what to expect, I did get what I had hoped for. The ability to study in a calm quiet place. I've experienced a... More

We found two reviews about this place & all said good things but I think that the owners or friends wrote those reviews. This motel sits right next to I80 & you can hear every single vehicle that drives on the interstate, especially the semis. They claim that the rooms are recently remodeled but they didn't bother to invest in... More

My Partner and I have stayed at this motel many times throughout the years as we enjoy traveling from Sacramento to Reno on weekend getaways. Stopping in the small town of Colfax is one of our highlights and something we look forward to once or twice a year. Over the years we have noticed a tremendous change in the motel... More

On our way to Reno, NV we decided to pull over halfway in Colfax and found the Colfax Motor Lodge to be a comfortable and affordable place to stay. It ran us $65.00 for a Friday night stay. From the outside, you'd have to wonder what you were getting yourself into, but once we checked in we were pleasantly surprised.... More
