As with other current reviews, the pride of 34 years of ownership shows. The time capsule down to the brass room key that "Barry" and his wife have maintained is worth a visit. His friendly welcome made our stay even better. The only knock is the tired a/c. It was chilly requiring heat which the unit supplied. Also know that...

You know the feeling of sitting in a restored 1960's car, everything looks as it did back when it first appeared in the showroom? That's how this place looks...a trip back to "long ago." Our room was in perfect shape. The furniture was so wonderfully comfortably and the carpet was spotlessly clean from wall to wall. This was a real...

My family (including pets) have stayed here twice now. Barry and Bonnie are always accommodating and very friendly. It seems like a lot of other motels and hotels in RB have cockroach infestations which is totally unacceptable. Here, you can stay with your beloved beasts for a small fee. They have free wifi, which is pretty fast and have microwave...

This place continues to please mightily and goes to show that a book cannot be judged by its cover. Red Bluff's hidden gems (this motel, Janya Thai, and Carlito's Mexican Restaurant) are all on the other side of the river from downtown--toward Lassen in the drab, ugly outskirts. None are by any means pretty, but the quality and value-for-money will...

These operators have pride of ownership with the attention to detail you can't find under $150.00 a night. They are warm friendly people who were willing to help. The room was clean to the edges, it had everything a traveler would want for an overnight stay on a long trip. It was very quiet, so that we heard nothing.

Wife and I stopped here on vacation for a night. Rooms are very large, very clean, and beds very comfortable. Staff is friendly. Location was easy to find with lots of parking. We couldn't believe we could get a room this large at such a low price. We will definitely be staying here again if we come through this area....

Stayed at The Sportsman Lodge on Tuesday 6/9/15. The cost with tax was very reasonable, just over $57.00. The motel is at the east end of Red Bluff and just before the turn to Lassen Volcanic National Park. Upon arrival the gentleman who manages the motel was very welcoming and recommended various restaurants & advised me of those that offer...

As others have stated, the owner goes out of his way to help ensure that you have a good time at his motel and in Red Bluff. The room was large, quiet, clean and the guest chairs were actually comfortable to sit in and read. Not something you usually get at budget motels. The air conditioner is at the back...
