Will probably stay here again when we're in the area. The woman who runs the place is so friendly! Clean rooms (although the bathroom needs updating), dog friendly, pretty close to town. Really nice hot tub too!

Great location, has a nice sauna and hot tub...I guess some units are kitchenettes. Staff is very friendly and helpful...But the room we were asigned to had a terrible musty and mildew smell...the wall in the bathroom had mushrooms or a fungus of some kind actually growing out of the wall...the entire bathroom had the look of being exposed to...

Sorry for your unpleasant experience. We had an undetected leak in the upstairs bathroom that caused the issue. It is currently being repaired. I have spoken with the staff regarding cleaning, very difficult to run a small business these days.

Motel room with all facilities, clean, welcoming, with a really good vibe, recommended for its reasonably priced accommodation. Mt Shasta is a beautiful place to spend time in. Shops, supermarkets, restaurants, all staff I found helpful and friendly, scenery is beautiful, history,archaeology are all there for the discerning visitor. As a solo visitor it is advisable to have private transport.

I generally do not write reviews but in this case I thought that it was important to let others know of our experience. We reserved a room with two bedrooms and a kitchenette online and upon check in received keys to room #14. We were told by the person who checked us in that she only worked during the days...

We stayed at this motel one night on our Mount Shasta trip. The room was large and comfortable, but quite outdated. Not that it really mattered to us as the staff were friendly, the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. It is certainly a great deal for the price.

This is such a quaint place. When we pulled up, I wasn't expecting much based on some negative reviews - what a surprise to see this adorable retro motel. The teens I had with me were thrilled at its little kitchen adorable set up where they had their own room and I could close the door to my room and...

I really liked this nice clean motel room that didn't remind me of cheap plastic modern motels. It's older but I like that and that it has real character. They are located right off the highway and accommodated me at 11 pm at night without a reservation. Darren was great and friendly. I'd stay again for sure.

Long-time family run motel, been in same family for 50 years. Charming throw-back. Standard rooms are standard, but if you're looking for a little more upscale, book the deluxe rooms in the back. Best amenity is the authentic Finnish sauna (family has Finnish roots). No electric sauna here - the real deal. Nice views of the majestic mountain.

I place a request on my online, booking to be on the upper floor. When we arrived at the desk, a pretty incompetent lady received us. She could not find our reservation, and when I found out I had a first floor room, I went back to the office. There was another couple there, she had print my receipt with...

Simona, I'm sorry you did not get the room you were expecting. Tami has been working for us for several years and is usually very careful, I don't think she is incompetent. If you would have mentioned your concerns regarding the room during your stay, we may not have been able to give you a second floor room, but perhaps...

WOW, I can't believe people stay here. Musty smell, dark rooms with one light and the beds. We walked in and right out, I would rather just sleep in the car than get bed bugs. Don't waste your time, its really bad.

Truther, Don't really know how to respond. Did not see anyone named Truther in the books. Why didn't you ask for your money back? Your assessment of our rooms is untrue and libelous. K. Rousseau
