Our stay at this "River Inn/America's Best Inn" in Redding was great! The property and buildings are old - so if you're looking for a modern place w/a luxury feel, this place may not be it. However, if you're "budget minded" and want a place where you can get a good night sleep, feel safe, that's clean and reasonably priced,...

My friends and I were looking for a relaxing place to stay and this Inn was perfect. With the intense heat in redding, the pool was perfect for cooling off. The pool was deep enough to jump into and to swim around in, but still had a shallow enough end for young kids to stay in. The room was quiet,...

I booked this hotel thinking I was staying at the America's Best Value Inn, (which we stayed at before and really like everything about it.) However, I was severely disappointed when this turned out to be a different hotel. It was truly a little scary! My 11yr old didn't want to sleep there at all. She didn't even want to...

Formerly known as River Inn (still has the old sign high on a pole) and now an America's Best Inn. Two sections: a newer, generic motel with two-story buildings, and an older round wood building set apart from the motel section, right by the river. I chose this building, where the rooms were situated around a central foyer and most...

Air conditioning? Not hardly. It must have been 130 degrees in the room when I walked in and the air con unit was the size of a small microwave. Also, there was no internet in the outer building so I changed rooms to one near the pool area. After 3 hours, the temp was still near 90 degrees. The air...
